Method of valuation:

Each gemstone is valued differently. It is especially based on the carat system. Higher the carats, higher the price of the gemstone, this is not however the only factor in gemstone valuation. Value will also depend on clarity of gems, purity, color, size, strength, etc. some high quality gems are said to have clear colors and above all required strength and size.
