The 4Cs: Carat, Color, Clarity, Cut
In the Middle Ages, beautiful gems were not found in shops, but instead at the apothecary! These stones were not just for mere ornament as we know them today. Rather because of their rarity and costliness, they were considered very powerful and valued for the special properties they were believed to possess. When later connected to the signs of the zodiac, it was believed that wearing the right stone each month would ensure healing or magic. Those who could afford it would collect all 12, but for most, it was only possible to obtain one. This led to the thinking that it was most valuable to be blessed during the month of one's birth anniversary. For more information on all types of gemstones, check out the Gem Encyclopedia from GIA!
