All About Gemstones: Diamonds, Gems, & Jewelry

All About Gemstones Banner

All About Gemstones is a diamond, colored-gemstone and jewelry database/website that was written from a layperson's perspective, and is designed to bridge the gap between the expert gemologist, and the consumer who can easily get lost in the blizzard of technical jargon. With over 700 pages, and over 2,500 photographs, diagrams, and illustrations, this site is designed to providing interesting information on the subject of gemology, precious and semiprecious gemstones, diamonds, pearls, contemporary jewelry design, jewelry fabrication, mining, gem-cutting history, geography, and the jewellery trade.

We have also included interesting research on some of the world's premiere contemporary jewelry designers, and the galleries that show their work. We hope you enjoy the site half as much as we did creating it!
