About Semi Precious Stones

You found a tumbled stone necklace in your mom's old jewelry box and you are not sure what the stones are, but you want to find some gemstone pieces to match. The odds are very good that they are semi-precious stones and they can be easier to match than precious stones. The precious stones — diamond, emerald, sapphire, and ruby — are expensive and have a lot of variation in both color and quality. The other stones are considered semi-precious and they include stones, such as turquoise, agates, amethysts, and lapis lazuli, among others. Finding semi-precious stone earrings to match a tumbled necklace is not difficult when you start by figuring out what the stones are. The easiest way to begin is to match colors, and then work backward to names from there. Semi-precious stone bracelets help to round out the set, giving you a full wardrobe in your chosen gemstone. With the vast inventory on eBay, it is easy to find exactly the pieces you want in the semi-precious stones that you love to wear.
