Understanding Lapis Lazuli:

Lapis Lazuli, ranking at 5 to 5.5 on the Mohs scale, originates primarily from Afghanistan and the Middle East. Composed of various minerals, the dominant lazurite imparts the stone's mezmerizing blue hue. Calcite contributes a white streak, while pyrite adds silver or gold flecks. Ideal specimens, set in radiant gold, boast a deep, dark blue color with minimal visible inclusions, often found in the mines of Afghanistan.

Discerning Quality

When seeking Lapis Lazuli set in gold, prioritize stones with minimal visible calcite and pyrite inclusions. While perfection is rare, the presence of these elements does not necessarily diminish the stone's value. Embrace the uniqueness of white calcite streaks or shimmering pyrite flecks, and appreciate the rich spectrum of Lapis colors, ranging from deep blue to greenish tones and violets.

Beware of Imitations

Despite its abundance, high-quality Lapis Lazuli set in gold can be elusive. Distinguish genuine Lapis from imitations crafted with colored glass or plastics, mimicking its traditional appearance. Seek the guidance of a gemologist or reputable jeweler to ensure the authenticity of your Lapis jewelry set in gold. Conduct thorough research before making a purchase to avoid being deceived by fake materials.

Enhanced Lapis Lazuli:

While Lapis is typically untreated, be aware that some may undergo processes like dying, waxing, or resin impregnation to enhance color. Understand the potential risks associated with these treatments, as they can compromise the stone's stability, and the color enhancement may fade over time. Prioritize transparency when acquiring Lapis Lazuli set in gold to make an informed decision.

Embrace Simplicity in Design:

Opt for simpler cuts, such as round or oval cabochons, to accentuate the natural beauty of Lapis Lazuli set in gold. These timeless cuts allow the stone to shine, showcasing its vivid color and unique characteristics. Lapis Lazuli set in gold is often paired with other stones believed to share similar spiritual properties, creating stunning and meaningful jewelry pieces.
