Precious gems like Ruby and Sapphire are durable, rare, and beautiful, which drive their value up. Amethyst is beautiful, but is less rare, so is more affordable, even in larger sizes. Learn more about each gemstone by visiting our Gemstone Library. Similarly, Platinum is rare, strong, and naturally white which is reflected in its luxurious price tag. Sterling Silver is beautiful, but less durable and more requiring of maintenance, so is less expensive. Learn more by visiting our Precious Metal Guide.
