A world dominated by the likes of Turquoise, Topaz, Amethyst; and many others like them. Semi-precious gemstones have gained an ill-image in the eyes of jewellery makers, that they are somehow lower to their “precious” contemporaries. An image, and name, created by precious stone cartels to create a market that is hopelessly in love with the holy quartet. An image that semi-precious stones wholesaler would disagree with. But that image is not true at all. So let us have look at the top 5 semi-precious gemstones that will change your perception of them, helping you realize the true meaning of Shakespeare’s quote: What’s in a name?
