Where do the gems come from?
The 25 carefully chosen gems in Coeur de Gem are specially cut in India and Europe from rough gemstones carefully selected by our French partner, a member of the Responsible Jewelry Council (RJC).
The rough gemstones come from several countries of origin: India, Brazil, the United States...
You will find the exact origin of each gem in the application.
What are the symbols on the gems?
For thousands of years, gems have had their own symbolism.
Each gem was believed to possess specific powers and virtues linked to the legends of its origins, but also to its colour.
Coeur de Gem invites you to discover these symbols as they have come down to us thanks to texts, some of which date back to Greek Antiquity, which transcribe a much older oral tradition.
The virtues attributed to gems bear witness to our fascination with the mysterious beauty of precious stones, a universal cultural heritage.
Some of them are associated with the 12 months of the year: these are the birthstones.
You can select your gems according to the birth month of the person for whom the locket is intended.
What are the dimensions of the gems?
The diameter of the gems is 6 mm for hearts and rounds.
Faceted gems are approximately 3.5 mm thick and polished gems are a maximum of 3 mm thick.
They move freely in the locket, projecting their sparkle as they move.
The gems in my locket are slightly different from those in the application, is this normal?
Our gems are cut from rough gemstones that contain several subtle shades of the same colour.
Even if they come from a single rough, all the gems will therefore be different.
No two gems will ever be perfectly identical, which guarantees you a unique piece of jewellery, especially for patterned gems such as Malachite, Rutile Quartz and Labradorite.
The gems bear the hallmark of the cutter and their expertise: they are tiny unique works of art!
We work with our supplier to ensure that our gems meet our quality criteria, in terms of colour and size, and are as close as possible to those shown in the application.
