There are numerous types of gemstones in all the colors of the rainbow. Gems exist in all shades and textures, and the variety is immense. At Yaniv Fine Jewelry we use a wide range of gemstones, but the most common are sapphires, rubies, emeralds and tanzanite.

Sapphire is a gem variety of the mineral corundum. Sapphires are the second hardest precious stones after diamonds, and are also the second most popular gem. Sapphires come in a variety of colors: blue, yellow, pink, orange and more.

Ruby is a gem that is also made of the mineral corundum, and comes in varying shades of red. Rubies are extremely prestigious, and when they are of fine quality may sometimes be more expensive and rarer than diamonds. Ruby stones from Burma with "pigeon blood" color are the most sought after and prestigious rubies in the world.

Emerald (also known as Esmaralda) is a precious gemstone. Emeralds have a shiny green color reminiscent of tiger eyes. A high quality emerald is also sometimes considered more expensive than diamonds.

Tanzanite is a very expensive gemstone. Tanzanite comes in a variety of blue colors, from translucent to light blue, blue to intense purple. This stone is one of the New Age stones, because it was only discovered in 1967. The tanzanite is named after its country of origin – Tanzania – the only place on earth where it is found.
