For those looking to adorn yourselves with diamonds and bling but do not wish to stretch that pocket too far, look no further. Gemstones such as Amethysts, Blue Topaz, Yellow Beryls, Citrines, Peridots, Rose Quartz are definitely much more affordable than most other types of gemstones.
Nonetheless, affordability is not to be mistaken with cheap. These gemstones are simply more inexpensive when compared with other more rare and precious gems. The main reasons are due to its common availability and these gemstones are usually always heated or have gone through some form of irradiation treatment.
A recently completed example of fine jewellery that does not burst your pocket is showcased below. A beautiful Swiss Blue Topaz set in 18K white gold and diamonds.
