WHAT IS A CALIBRATED GEMS?
In this post you'll find the answer. In the gallery there are tables of standard sizes and weights👉🏻
✔️Buyers should be aware that gemstones are often sold in calibrated sizes. This means that stones are sold in common sizes that will fit most commercial jewelry, such as rings and bracelets.
✔️Mass-produced gem settings come in standard sizes. If a gem won't fit in a standard setting, one needs to be custom made. Bear this in mind when buying a gem, or selecting a cut for a gem. There are circumstances where the value of a stone makes it worth cutting for maximum yield, then later paying for a custom-made setting. In other circumstances, the cost of a custom setting isn't justified by the value of the gemstone.
✔️A gem does not need to be the precise size of the setting. A skilled jeweler can modify a setting to accommodate a wide variety of gem sizes. Any round gem can be put in a standard setting. With other shapes, there are various factors to be considered. As a rule, gems under one carat can be within 0,1 mm of the setting size. Over one carat, a 0,2 mm variance can usually be accommodated and sometimes more.
✔️The weights given are for diamonds cut to ideal proportions. Colored stones are usually cut with greater volume than diamonds; therefore, they will weigh more than the chart sizes. The density of the material will also affect the weight.
