Overview
The seemingly limitless colors of gemstones create a stunning and dramatic effect. The hue, saturation, and tone all contribute to the depth of color and overall beauty of each gemstone.

Hue
The prevailing color of a gemstone is referred to as its hue. Most stones contain one dominant hue as well as one or more underlying colors. Those gems with the purest hues are the most rare and valuable.

Saturation
The intensity of a gemstone's color is referred to as the saturation. Jewels with vivid color saturation exhibit little or no gray or brown hues, which can cause a dark or dull appearance. Sea of Diamonds carries only the most striking gemstones with intense color saturation.

Tone
Having great impact on the appearance of a gemstone is its tone, or depth of color. Ranging from "colorless" to "extremely dark" stones may vary in their transparency and richness of color. The most beautiful of these jewels will have a tone that lies in the middle of this range, offering both stunning color and a bright sparkle.

Making a Choice
It is important to consider all of these factors when selecting a gemstone as they each contribute to the lasting allure of the jewel. The variety of gemstone jewelry available at Sea of Diamonds makes it possible for you to easily find a piece that will leave her breathless.
