Gem Jewellers wants you to be as informed as possible when it comes to making decisions regarding your jewellery purchases.  Regardless if you’re buying a piece straight from our display case, or taking advantage of our expertise in creating a Custom Design option, you should know the facts and the basics about diamonds and your jewellery purchase.

To help you better understand things, we’ve put together some handy links to commonly asked questions like “What are the 4 Cs?” and “What’s the difference between a GIA vs EGC grading for diamonds?”.

We like to call the following section Jewellery 101.  If you can’t find the answer to your jewellery question in any of the links below, feel free to contact us or come into the store in person and ask us, we’d be happy to help you out!
