  1. Gemstones vs Diamonds | Learn The Differences

    Gemstones vs Diamonds

    Catbird jewelry comes in a technicolor rainbow of gems. Whether you’re drawn to vibrant gemstone rings or the timeless shine of diamond jewelry, understanding their differences can help you make an informed choice. Learn all about the unique facets of each treasure and discover which piece might be your next favorite.

    Are Diamonds Gemstones?

    While all diamonds are gemstones, not all gemstones are diamonds. Diamonds are renowned for their unparalleled hardness, brilliance, and enduring beauty, making them an enduring choice for everything from engagement rings to classic jewelry essentials  like diamond necklaces.

     

    Which Is More Valuable: A Gem or a Diamond?

    Rarity, size, and quality all play a role in determining a stone’s value. Generally, diamonds are considered more valuable due to their high demand in the jewelry market. However, certain gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, can rival diamonds in value, especially if they are of exceptional quality or have unique characteristics. For instance, a rich ruby ring or deep emerald ring can be as coveted as a diamond piece.

     

    Differences Between Gemstones and Diamonds

    Composition:

    • Diamonds: Made of pure carbon atoms arranged in a crystal lattice structure.
    • Gemstones: Composed of various minerals; like corundum for sapphires and rubies, beryl for emeralds, and calcium carbonate for pearls.

    Formation:

    • Diamonds: Formed deep within the Earth under extreme pressure and temperature over millions of years.
    • Gemstones: Formed in various geological environments; processes include crystallization from magma, sedimentation, and biological processes in the case of pearls.

    Hardness:

    • Diamonds: The strongest natural material, rated 10 on the Mohs hardness scale.
    • Gemstones: Vary in hardness; sapphires and rubies are 9, emeralds are 7.5-8, and pearls are about 2.5-4.5 on the scale.

    Color:

    • Diamonds: Typically colorless, but can come in various colors due to impurities (e.g., yellow, blue, pink).
    • Gemstones: Available in a broad spectrum of colors, each type with its characteristic hues (e.g., red for rubies, green for emeralds, blue for sapphires).

    Uses in Jewelry:

    • Diamonds: Commonly used in engagement rings, classic jewelry pieces, and luxury items.
    • Gemstones: Worn in a wide variety of jewelry, including rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets; valued for their vibrant colors and unique properties.

    Clarity and Inclusions:

    • Diamonds: Valued for their clarity; inclusions can affect value significantly.
    • Gemstones: Inclusions can sometimes add to the uniqueness and value (e.g., "silk" in sapphires, "Jardin" in emeralds).

    Market and Demand:

    • Diamonds: High global demand driven by its symbol of commitment and milestones, especially for engagement rings.
    • Gemstones: Demand varies by gemstone type and cultural significance; some gemstones are highly sought after in specific regions.

    Symbolism and Meaning:

    • Diamonds: Often associated with love, eternity, and strength.
    • Gemstones: Each has its own symbolism; for example, rubies symbolize passion, sapphires wisdom, emeralds growth and renewal, pearls purity, and opals creativity.

     

     

    How Are Diamonds Made

    Diamonds are formed deep within the Earth under extreme pressure and temperature conditions. Composed of pure carbon atoms and arranged in a crystal lattice structure, they have incredible hardness. Over millions of years, these carbon atoms bond together to form diamonds. The journey of a diamond from its formation to a sparkling gemstone necklace or a set of gemstone earrings is truly a geological marvel.

     

    How Are Gemstones Made

    Gemstones are formed in a variety of geological environments and can be composed of different minerals. For example, rubies and sapphires are formed from the mineral corundum, while emeralds are derived from beryl. Pearls are created by mollusks in the ocean, opals form from silica-rich water, and moonstones from the cooling of magma. This diversity in formation processes results in the stunning array of unique colors and properties found in gemstones.

  2. How to Choose 14k Gold Jewelry

    How to Choose 14k Gold Jewelry 

    Out of the many options available on the jewelry market today, nothing speaks to the timeless like 14k gold jewelry. At Catbird, we believe in a blend of beauty and sustainable sourcing. Dive into our expert guide on how to choose the best 14k gold pieces for your style.

     

    Why Choose 14k Gold Jewelry

    Going with gold means choosing purity and strength. 14k gold contains 58.3% pure gold and offers durability without sacrificing the warm luster that makes the precious metal so desirable. It's the perfect choice for everyday wear, guaranteed to remain beautiful for years to come. From 14k gold rings to 14k gold necklaces, each piece in the Catbird collection has an incomparable shine that is made to last. 

     

    Durability of 14k Gold Jewelry

    14K gold has an inarguably superior durability. As opposed to 18K gold, which is softer due to higher gold content, 14k gold is scratch and bend-resistant and better suited to withstand daily wear. For pieces like 14k gold earrings and 14k gold anklets durability is a priority so you can style stress-free – we believe even the most precious jewelry should be unfussy. Our 14k gold pieces are crafted to endure the rigors of daily wear while maintaining their lasting quality. 

     

    What Does 14k Gold Mean/ What Is 14k Gold Made Of

    14k gold signifies that the metal is 58.3% pure gold, with the remainder being a mix of other metals such as silver, copper, and zinc. 14k gold is composed of 14 parts pure gold and 10 parts alloy metals. This alloying process strengthens the gold, making it suitable for a wide range of jewelry pieces, ranging from a more delicate gold chain or stacking ring to robust gold signet rings.

     

    Is It Better to Buy 14k or 18k Gold

    When deciding between 14k and 18k gold, consider your lifestyle and how you plan to wear your jewelry. 14k gold is generally better for everyday wear due to its hardness and resistance. On the other hand, 18k gold, with its higher gold content, is softer and more prone to scratches but does offer a richer yellow hue. At Catbird, we recommend 14k gold for those who want both durability and beauty, especially for regularly worn pieces like 14k gold earrings and 14k gold rings.

  6. How to Care for Gold Jewelry

    How to Take Care of Gold Jewelry

    Gold jewelry is timeless elegant. We like to say “put it on, never take it off” - it’s jewelry that moves with you. Whether it's 14k gold rings or gold bands that adds shine to your everyday, taking care of your gold jewelry is easy and almost effortless. In this guide, we'll explore the best practices for keeping your gold rings, gold earrings & jewelry looking its best, from storage tips to cleaning methods, and everything in between.

    How do you keep gold jewelry shiny?

    Gold jewelry, regardless of its karat or plating, can dull in its shine over time due to exposure to elements like sweat, perfume, and chemicals. To keep your gold jewelry tip top, regularly clean with a soft cloth and mild soap solution, avoiding harsh chemicals. Store it in a dry, airtight container away from moisture and direct sunlight to prevent tarnishing. For more specific instructions on how to care for your gold jewelry follow the below steps. 

    How to store gold jewelry

    Proper storage is helpful for maintaining the condition of your gold jewelry. Follow these tips to keep your pieces safe and secure:

    • Store each piece separately to prevent scratching and tangling.
    • Use a jewelry box with compartments or individual pouches to keep pieces organized and protected from dust and moisture.

    How to clean gold jewelry

    Regular cleaning helps remove dirt, oils, and tarnish, keeping your gold jewelry looking radiant. Here's how to clean your gold jewelry safely:

    • Fill a bowl with warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap.
    • Soak your gold jewelry in the soapy water for a few minutes to loosen dirt and debris.
    • Gently scrub the jewelry with a soft-bristled toothbrush or cloth to remove any remaining residue.
    • Rinse thoroughly under lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean, soft cloth. 

    Does Gold Tarnish?

    Pure gold is resistant to tarnishing, but alloys used in gold jewelry can tarnish over time due to exposure to air, moisture, and chemicals. Proper care and maintenance can help prevent tarnishing and keep your gold jewelry looking its best.

    Is it OK to shower with gold jewelry?

    While some may say showering with gold jewelry is safe, it's technically best to remove your jewelry before bathing. Soap, shampoo, and other shower products can leave residues on the metal, dulling its shine and potentially causing damage over time.
