Manufacturer Ratings... Our Personal Opinion 

Many images provided in this online store are enlarged to show detail.  Refer to stone sizes to help determine the actual size of the ring you are considering.  We provide a millimeter to inches conversion chart to assist you.

Genuine Stones- Each manufacturer offers their own selection of genuine stones and the quality (and pricing) varies between manufacturers. Be sure to see specific product information provided in each individual collection.    

About Our Ratings

We have instituted our own private rating system for our mothers and family jewelry items based mainly on genuine stone quality and settings/mountings.  Genuine gemstones are a product of nature and each one is unique and will vary somewhat within even the same mfr.  Since you, our customers, are unable to see the genuine stones prior to purchase, we are providing this rating information to give you an better idea of the quality offered by each manufacturer.  This is a only a general rating by manufacturer.  If you have a question about a particular item, please contact us prior to purchase and we will do our best to provide detailed information on that specific product.  Note that we do not provide online color charts because they are often inaccurate.  Gold-plated brass samples set with simulated stones are available for inspection prior to purchase if you are not sure you will like a particular design.

Note: Rubies and emeralds are the genuine stones where you will see the most difference in quality.  This is why we have provided a brief description of these two genuine stones.

Ratings of the Manufacturer's Products

5 Hearts- Excellent  We are rather stingy with this rating.  Only manufacturer's with the very best quality settings and gemstones that we currently offer online have this rating (finer grades of genuine stones may be available for certain items). Very nice weight settings/mountings and most semi-precious stones are vibrant. Rubies and emeralds are more transparent allowing light to reflect off the bottom facets of the stone resulting in more sparkle. 

4 Hearts- Good  Mfrs. with good setting weights and nice genuine stones.  Rubies and emeralds have good color but are less transparent, a little more opaque... you can usually see some reflection of light off the bottom facets of the stone. Other genuine stones have good color.

3 Hearts- Average Mfrs. may have lighter weight settings and genuine stones are usually average commercial grades. Commercial grade stones are generally cloudy and may have a lighter color... generally only the top facets of the stone reflect light-  although smaller rubies and emeralds along with other genuine stones tend to look somewhat better.  Diamonds are generally "I" quality.

NOTE:  Most mfrs. only offer one grade of genuine stones in their products and will not set finer qualities.
