Beauty to colour your world
Coloured gemstones have always been a source of fascination. Throughout history, people of all cultures have been in awe of their power, often using them to ward off evil. They have also been revered by the very rich and powerful as a coveted status symbol.
Their rarity and beauty continues to mesmerise with new discoveries and modern mining techniques all over the world, making them more affordable than ever. Tanzanite adds to the more traditional rubies, emeralds and sapphires, with all of these precious gemstones displaying their own beauty, durability and rarity.
At Andrew Mazzone Design Jeweller we believe that everyone deserves a spectacular gemstone that reflects who they are. We have something for everyone in all the colours of the rainbow.

Any excuse is good enough – and the choice is practically endless.

The 4Cs of finding a real gem
Once you’ve decided on the type, style and colour of the jewellery you desire, remember that the same 4Cs used to establish the quality and value of diamonds, are applied to coloured gemstones – cut, carat weight, clarity, and of course, colour. Feeling confident with your jeweller’s advice is also important. Andrew has an extensive range of gemstone jewellery to explore, and if you feel inspired, we’d love to design a signature piece for you. Learn More – Demystifying Diamonds
Colour is a very important consideration when choosing a gemstone. The more vivid, even coloured and pure it is, the more valuable it will be. With thousands of shades to choose from, the best advice is to make your selection based simply on what looks best on you. Learn More – Demystifying Diamonds – Colour
The cut of a coloured gemstone is of extraordinary importance. Quality cutting maximizes the brilliance and scintillation of the stone and emphasises the beauty and richness of the gemstone’s inherent colour. Learn More – Demystifying Diamonds – Cut
We can only describe a flawless colour gemstone as extremely rare. Usually you can expect to see inclusions that validate their origin, but ideally don’t spoil their natural beauty. Luckily they don’t impact the value of a coloured gemstone, as much as they do a diamond. Learn More – Demystifying Diamonds – Clarity
- Carat Weight
Obviously the larger the gemstone, the rarer it is. Gemstones that naturally occur in larger sizes are amethyst and tourmaline whilst sapphires and rubies are rarely found in sizes above two or three carats. Learn More – Demystifying Diamonds – Carat
