The Four C’s of Colored Gemstones. Affectionately known as the Four C’s to us gem nerds, Carat, Clarity, Color, and Cut are the four yardsticks used to measure gemstone value. Whether you plan to buy one gem or begin a collection, it is worth your while to understand how each of these factors affects your investment.
Gemstone pricing and value are governed by factors and characteristics in the quality of the stone. These characteristics include clarity, rarity, freedom from defects, the beauty of the stone, as well as the demand for such stones. There are different pricing influencers for both colored gemstones, and for diamonds.

First things first, when you plan to buy a gemstone the first thing you need to do is to learn about the basics – the four Cs (colour, cut, clarity and carat).

Lots of gemstones are treated to enhance their colour, whether this is through the application of heat or other means, like oiling in emeralds. As long as these techniques are disclosed and the customer is made aware, there is nothing inherently wrong with a treated gemstone.
Sometimes what is done to a gemstone to enhance its appearance can have an effect on its durability, which makes disclosure even more important. Plus, a gemstone that has not been treated is likely to be far more valuable than another that has been treated, even if they look similar to the naked eye.
