GEMSTONE ENHANCEMENT INTRODUCTION

This guide has been created to help you with the terminology used in our gemstone jewelry descriptions and the site specifics used.  It contains some basic information that we hope will be helpful to you as you evaluate and choose your jewelry teasures.

For most gemstones the enhancements are permanent and undetectable to the human eye.  Enhancements increase the available supply of gemstones, thereby increasing their affordability as well.

The term Enhancement which is used in the eBay site specifics describes any process other than polishing, cleaning or cutting that improves the appearance of a natural gemstone or cultured Pearl.  Most gemstones are treated or enhanced in various ways to improve and maximize their color.  The most common treatment is heat treatment.  We will classify the colored gemstones we offer on our eBay site as Genuine - but Routinely Enhanced when it applies and list the common traditional enhancements. You can also find the traditional enhancements in the Gemstone Enhancement Chart.  Those gemstones that are commonly known to be natural and not enhanced will be listed on our site specifics as  Natural .

There are many methods of enhancing colored gemstones and we offer a chart of the gemstones that we usually sell that describes the most common treatments. You can find more detailed information by checking out the American Gem Trade Association’s Gemstone Information Manual.

The treatments(enhancements) listed in our Gemstone Enhancement Chart are common and acceptable in the industry and are based on the world’s major gemological laboratories, regulatory bodies, Trade Associations and professional journals. 

We have tried to keep the information in a simple form and hope that you will enjoy our site and feel that you have more confidence in evaluating and choosing beautiful jewelry that you will enjoy for years to come.
