Sparkling Gemstones

Some gemstones can sparkle while some cannot do this, some gemstone may however have some luster that could make them look shiny even if they can’t sparkle. The basic attribute of a gemstone that can give some indication of how much it can shine or how brilliant/sparkly it can be is its refractive index.

In addition to the refractive index of a gemstone, some other attributes that can also contribute to the sparkling effect of a gemstone that sparkles is its cut, fire (the dispersion of light as a rainbow of colors) and its ability to scintillate (that is the giving off of some flashes of white and black light when the gemstone is moved).

To select or choose the best sparkling gemstone for your fiancée or your own engagement ring you can start first with the refractive index of the gemstone(s) of the engagement ring you may be interested in or the gemstone(s) you may want to use with a custom engagement ring. A list of refractive indexes for various types of gemstones are generally available for use on the internet for free.

You will then need to know the cut grade of the specific gemstone you may be reviewing in order to determine how well-cut the gem is. Such information should be available with the gemstone’s certificate/grading reports with the store, site or jeweler that may be selling the ring or gemstone. Two sub-grades of the gemstone’s cut, that is, the cut’s depth % and table % can be used to further defined how well-cut the gemstone is too. The sub-grades should also be available with the gemstones certificate/grading reports too.

A list of gemstone fire values for gemstones are also available on the internet too. You can therefore use these attributes and values to determine and compare the type of gemstones that will sparkle more than the others, that can be used in your fiancée or your own engagement ring.

Some gemstones with some sparkles include moissanite (synthetic), diamond. cubic zirconia, garnet (demantoid). Zircon etc. You can learn more about using some sparkling gemstones for your engagement ring at Finding The Perfect Engagement Ring and The Best Engagement Rings For Expressing Your Love.
