Not only are gemstones stunning, they are incredibly fascinating! A gemstone is a mineral or naturally occurring material that is durable enough to be carved, polished and cut to create beautiful pieces of jewellery and lustrous adornments. Diamond, ruby, emerald and sapphire are considered precious stones, while the other stones fit into a semi-precious category; however they are all as wonderfully beautiful as each other. No matter what the occasion is, nothing beats the beauty and subtlety of innovative gemstone jewellery. Here at Stanley James, we scour the world for the very best in handcrafted items that will catch the eye every time, and we are especially proud to offer these stunning pieces at prices which are surprisingly affordable.
