Using close-up photographs, the book shows how to make visual judgements about clarity, transparency, cut quality and brilliance

Using close-up photographs, the book shows how to make visual judgements about clarity, transparency, cut quality and brilliance. In addition, it helps you to understand lab reports and find appraisers and labs. You will also get tips on detecting imitations and synthetic stones.

This book is good for a beginner, because it talks about how rubies and sapphires are chemically the same but the color gives them different names, and the special qualities of rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. I own many Colombian emeralds that belonged to my Colombian grandmother, so I was able to turn around and look at pieces I own, and understand the context of the book. I also learned the wonderful qualities of these popular colored stones, from cuts, to acceptable clarity, and valuble color variations.

All three books are enjoyable reading, but Newman!s guides are the ones to take along when shopping

I do not know anything about gems thus the need for this reference book. It is very informative and has wonderful color pictures.

I first came across this book in the library years ago, and was hooked solely on the pictures. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and I bought it, remembering the pictures. This time, I actually read it through, having a better idea about jewelry. This book is good for a beginner, because it talks about how rubies and sapphires are chemically the same but the color gives them different names, and the special qualities of rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. I own many Colombian emeralds that belonged to my Colombian grandmother, so I was able to turn around and look at pieces I own, and understand the context of the book. I also learned the wonderful qualities of these popular colored stones, from cuts, to acceptable clarity, and valuble color variations. For someone who wants something easy to read, easy to understand, and has fabulous pictures, I would recommend this book.

An good insight into the trade for the consumer. It is easy-to-read, filled with great colour pictures, and with descriptions in everyday language that even the non-professional can easily understand. I recommend it to everyone.

For further important reading i suggest You coplete Your collection with the Enhancement-books by the author Ted Themelis (please search with the name of the Author to find the books in question).

I was hoping for a more serious book with new facts and price evaluations. At least show examples and more pictures.

The author did a very bad job with this book its childish and not informing anything special even the internet can give you better stuff to read .

DONT BUY THIS BOOK
