Stone Shape Chart
The chart below features common gemstone shapes. The most popular shapes for coloured gemstones are round, cushion, emerald, radiant, and princess. If you would like more information regarding the characteristics of each shape, we are happy to share the Information about shapes and the wide variety of gemstones available.
While diamonds have an internationally established grading system, there is no official, standardised method to analyse clarity in gemstones. Usually, the jewellery industry grades coloured gemstones, including sapphires, at eye level. Since the specification of clarity is not standardised, this is one way that clarity can be categorised. Eye-clean gemstones are more expensive than gemstones whose inclusions are clearly visible. The very slight inclusions are also expensive as the brilliance of the stone appearance is intact, and inclusions are visible on very close eye inspection. The light inclusions are gemstones in which inclusions are easily visible, but they are light. Gemstones' appearance is considered inclusion when inclusions primarily or prevent entirely light from reflecting. The clarity is not visual.
Colour Intensity Grading
In the world of coloured gemstones, colour is the main ingredient and uniqueness of gemstones. The colour matters the most. The more intense the gemstone's colour, the more valuable and expensive it is. The natural physical composition of gemstone gives the colour. Vivid is the finest colour intensity saturated without the gemstone being dark. The light easily reflects from the gemstone. Intense-coloured gemstones are excellent gemstone colours, and light can easily reflect through a gemstone. The light-coloured gemstones reflect white reflection or pastel colour. The dark-coloured gemstone allows no light to reflect, and the colours are closer to opaque.

Gemstone's value depends upon 4C's- Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat (weight) and origin. In terms of colour, the more intense the gemstone, the higher its value. In terms of cut, brilliant cuts are more valuable than old-fashioned cuts- round, oval, square. In carat/ weight- as the weight increases, it becomes expensive. In terms of clarity, lesser inclusions viewed from the naked eye, the more valuable it becomes. Origin is one of the main factors in the selection of gemstones.
