How to Choose the Perfect Gemstone

How to Choose the Perfect Gemstone

Gemstones play an important role in our lives. And their importance is not only because of their healing properties, but also for their decorative versatility. One can use a gemstone crystal for decorating the side table in the living room,  or use them in custom keychains. Even though from the outside, every gemstone almost looks similar, they are always unique from stone to stone. 

Choosing the best gemstones is not an easy task, because of the variety in colors, shapes, and sizes. We want to help you spend your money wisely to get the very best gemstones for your purpose. 

Decide the purpose of the gemstone

The very first thing you need to do is decide what you are using the gemstones for. If  you are buying for therapeutic or healing purposes, you need to know what gems are good for different healing properties. But, if you are planning to buy for fashion or decorative purposes, it's important to get the right size and color for your project.  

Choose the best gemstone color

Most gemstones’ color is derived from their mineral composition. Amethyst is available in multiple colors. Diamonds can be pink, white and rose gold. Ruby is present in yellow and bright red color. From these examples it’s clear that the gemstones are usually available in different colors and hues based on their chemical and physical properties. So, based on your purpose, you need to pick the color that works best for you. 

Learn more about gemstone clarity and purity 

Not all the gemstones you see have the same level of clarity and purity. Some dealers even sell lab created stones as natural occurring gemstones. Purity is determined by how pure the chemical composition is. Any impurities in the chemical composition can reflect in the color and luster of the stone. Similarly, clarity means the transparency of the stone, or how much light it lets through. At NJ Traders Warehouse, we strive to represent to you exactly how the stones look, although there is variance from stone to stone.


Gemstones have always been highly regarded throughout history, be it for their healing properties or decorative uses. With a little basic knowledge, you can find exactly the right gemstone for you! NJ Traders Warehouse is committed to helping you with any questions you might have in selecting the right gemstone. Please let us know how we can assist you!
