If you are trying to discover the name of your gemstone, you will need to type the web address on your label in the URL bar above. It should say preciousgemcandles.net/your-gemstone/XYZ … where XYZ might be a letter, number or a combination of letters/numbers. Change XYZ to match the very end of the address found on your label, and you will get to the page that tells you what your gemstone is.
An example of this web address would be:
If your code begins with:
AC means Antique Cushion Cut
C means Cushion Cut
B means Baguette Shape
Br means Barrel Shape
H means Heart Shape; Heart gems may come with a 2mm hole drilled in it. This is for a 2mm diamond to be set in.
K means Kite Shape
M means Marquis Shape
O means Oval Shape
Oct means Octagon shape; also can be called Rectangle shape or Emerald Cut
P means Pear Shape
R means Round
Sq means Square Shape, sometimes called Princess
SL means Sugarloaf Shape
T means Trillion Shape. This is a triangle and the measurement is usually the same on all sides.
If the letters CAB follow the gemstone size, this means you have received a cabochon gemstone. This means the gemstone has been shaped and polished instead of faceted.
Following the beginning letters is the size of your gemstone in mm's
For example, 10x6mm means your stone is a 10 mm by 6 mm size; If your stone is a trillion, round or square, you will have just one measurment such as 8mm, since the stone is the same measurements on all sides, or it is the diameter of a round gemstone.
Some gemstones have a letter following the "mm" such as "AAA"
This indicates the quality of the stone graded by A, AA & AAA, SF
SF denotes that the gemstone is clean, well cut, well polished, has smiling and lively color with consistency and appropriation.
AAA denotes a clean, well cut & polished, lively color, but poses variation in color consistency gemstone.
AA denotes a semi-clean, well cut & polished, lively color, and poses variation and inconsistency in color appopriation.
A denotes a semi-clean, reasonably cut & polished with noticeable variations and inconsistency in color appopriation.
Commercial – Irregular, cloudy, visible inclusions, semi transparent & opaque, lower grade gemstone.
NOTE: You will not find a Commercial grade stone in a Precious Gem Candle.
Diamonds will have a code signifying Clarity
SI1, SI2: Slightly Included – Imperfections are visible under 10x magnification and may be visible with the unaided eye. A good value diamond
Diamonds will have a number followed by C to denote Carat. (.)75C denotes a 3/4 carat diamond.
So with all that information here are some examples of what your code could mean:
Code: Oct10x8mmAAA This means that you have received an Octagonal stone that measures 10x8mm. It also has a rating of AAA which means it is of the highest quality.
