The meticulously-crafted designer jewelry pieces of yours's which adds an irresistible charm to your look has to undergo a long & arduous process to be able to reach your wardrobe. With each gem telling a veritable tale of the sweat and tears shed & the hardships people has to go through during its discovery. This following article will take you on the journey of a rough mined gemstone, from the time it is unknown & uncovered deep within the Earth’s crust to the final stage when it is ready to be set into a piece of jewellery.

Anjoriya Jewels jewellery includes all the natural gemstones that have been dug out from beneath the Earth’s surface making the brand stand out far from the where other brands are using synthetic or lab-grown gemstones they offer to customers. As of being a part of natural formations, never ever can be two stones be quite the same, making every piece of gemstone used in jewellery making a unique work of art and every gemstone exquisite in its own natural way. The Natural gemstones are extremely rare to find at this point of time. These Gemstones takes millions of years in the formation process, while the combination of wind, rain and tectonic plate movement means they will have taken a long stretch of time to even come close to the Earth’s surface making its way through the deep crust. Some gemstones which are in circulation in the market could be more than a billion years old – a mind-blowing fact when one has to consider that they existed alongside the very first life forms on Earth. Formation of majority of gemstones takes place in the Earth’s crust, with just diamond and peridot developing in the mantle part of the crust. The process by which gemstones are created can be varied between the types, with stones formed from different types of stones. The former most point is the most common,
contributing to the origins of gemstones renowned as amethyst, diamond and moonstone these days. As an intricate process, gemstone formation can take place when clusters of tiny minerals react with water which is close to the Earth’s surface. This solution is then dissolves, cools and crystallizes to create & develop as gemstones. The nature of the stone will be depending on a unique number of factors also including the major factor of how long the original solution takes to cool, the surrounding of the environment and if there are other elements present during gemstone formation process was taking place.

The process of mining involves grueling labor along with a large number of man-hours, in an environment where luck is very much of the draw. There can be times when miners discovers gems just below the Earth’s surface while
there can be other times when it can take weeks & months of deep digging to be able to discover gemstones. Gemstones are being mined in most of the countries across the world but it is more common for mining work to taking place in Asia, America and the African continents in particular. This is because of the the natural, geological structure of the earth has led these areas to become quite rich in the availability of these precious minerals. The major gemstone mining takes place on the African continent in South Africa, Namibia and Madagascar countries to be precise. The world’s mining landscape has diversified with major superpowers becoming prominent mining locations, namely Russia, Canada, the USA and Australia. According to one of the gemology institute – “In a typical mine, 100 ton of rocks need to be processed in order to find a diamond larger than 1 carat. This can said to be equivalent of finding a four-leaf clover on more than 20 football pitches.”

Once the process of gemstones digging up is complete, gemmologists use their scientific knowledge in the identification and sorting of the gemstones. Out of all the gemstones mined worldwide, only a little fraction would be used and just 20 per cent of diamonds mined could match the gem grade quality. To be eligible for such quality, stones must reach the highest standards available of color and clarity of each. Keeping the point of size, larger stones are much more difficult to come by as compared with the smaller ones, which automatically increases their value and gem grade quality significantly on purpose.

In the next stage the gemstones has to go through another delicate process, this time in order to bring out their natural beauty and lustre. Lapidarists are the people who are trained to cut, grind and polish stones – are brought
in to ascertain & get the best cut for each stone that will minimize wastage and maximize sparkle & lusture. This delicate process requires high attention to detail as many gemstones are dichroic and will show different colors depending on which angle they are viewed & cut from. The next stage is when lapidary will work out how many inclusions means the materials trapped inside the mineral during its formation process – are visible from the top part or top view of each stone and use this to define the clarity of gemstones. He then cuts, grinds and polishes the gemstones to the highest shine by using a semi-automated process; only the smallest stones are cut entirely with fully automated machines.

Finally, gemstone buyers purchase the stones based on their requirements like cut, color, clarity and overall shine. Expert craftsman will then set each stone into the piece of jewellery – this is a very sophisticated process as they must ensure not to scratch or break the gemstone. Anjoriya Jewels gemstones are set in 92.5 % purity Sterling Silver to ensure a robust finish and beautiful, long-lasting pieces that every owner will treasure. These are not just simply products, every gem tells its own story – and what an incredible story it is.
