Combination of stones and metals
Precious stones are used in jewelry as an independent basis and in combination with precious, semi-precious and semi-precious stones. But not all such combinations can be called successful.
What stones are suitable for platinum
Platinum has a slightly grayish tint and a beautiful, not very bright luster. For the first time this metal began to be used in jewelry back in the 18th century in Europe. Today, platinum is a highly demanded and popular metal. Both men and women wear it. Platinum is combined with various stones, mostly precious. The classic version is diamonds of different cut shapes. Also, platinum is often combined with sapphires and amethysts. Stones of deep blue and violet shades (from rich to almost transparent) look great against the cold background of the noble metal. Often, rings, earrings and necklaces made of platinum are decorated with a “sea” stone with aquamarine. Its deep blue or pale blue haze perfectly “plays” in platinum, sets off and does not overshadow it. Can emphasize the grace of platinum and the labrador stone. Its gentle yellow-blue tints and unique pattern will make metal a good company. Platinum has almost the same combinations as white gold.
What stones are suitable for yellow gold
“Solar metal” has not lost its relevance for many centuries. In the middle of last year, we already talked about the fact that now there is another surge in the popularity of products made of classic yellow gold. Although, it is worth noting that rose gold, which was at the height of fashion a few years ago, remains in trend to this day.
Gold is an extremely active metal. It is best suited for transparent or translucent minerals of warm shades or completely colorless.
Stones that are very rich in color, such as garnet and red jasper, are not recommended to be combined with yellow gold. Jade, morion, amethyst and emerald are also not very suitable for these purposes.
