Announcement    At Cavalier Creations we love gemstones...mined from the earth, cut and polished gemstones! We are gemstone collectors, first and foremost, seeking out high quality gemstones at excellent prices.

We are so very pleased to announce that Cavalier Creations has gone GREEN! Having found a few wonderful sources for recycled/sustainable metals, Cavalier Creations is proud to present designs that feature fine quality precious metals that are Earth friendly! Great sources for recycled metals include: Hoover and Strong, Stuller and Rio Grande.

Many gems are heated and/or otherwise treated to enhance color and clarity. Most heat treatments occur at the mining site, immediately after the gemstone rough is separated from other mining debris. Unless otherwise stated, here or anywhere else for that matter, expect most gems to have been at least heat treated. A few wonderful exceptions to this "rule" would be most garnets, peridots, tourmalines and many of the clear, colorless gemstones.

All jewelry designs are packaged in gift boxes suitable for gift giving. If you desire your purchase to be shipped directly to the recipient, please send us a convo and we will make the proper arrangements to do so.

About Gemstone Treatments

For centuries man has been enhancing gemstones, from cutting and polishing to heating, irradiating, coating, oiling and dying. The cutting and polishing are obvious, the other enhancements are not always so. A very high percentage of naturally mined gems are treated in some manner to enhance their clarity and/or coloration with the most common form of treatment being heating. This process, along with irradiating, coating and dying are, in fact, industry accepted treatments. Sky, Swiss, and London blue topaz are almost always heated, some irradiated. Over 95% of sapphires on the market today are heated. The newer, “Mystic Quartz and Mystic Topaz” gemstones have a vapor deposition coating bonded to their surfaces. Dying is less often utilized, however, black, green and blue onyx are almost always dyed for uniform color. Cultured pearls (both sea and freshwater) begin with the manual implantation of a nucleus that the mollusk then forms the nacre around. Most fancy colored diamonds are irradiated. The list goes on and on with most treatments being perfectly acceptable and legitimate within the jewelry marketplace. These treatments become underhanded and illegal when unscrupulous sellers make false claims, for instance, a pink diamond being sold as “natural, untreated” when in fact it has been irradiated.

There are, however, many gems that undergo only mining, cutting and polishing without any further intervention needed to enhance their natural beauty. Some of these include: Clear quartz and topaz, many citrine and amethyst gems, garnets, opals, fluorite, and peridot. There are some that are available both in their natural and enhanced states such as rose quartz and the various hues of chalcedony. Many are drawn to the dramatic colors of the dyed and electrically treated chalcedony gems as they offer vibrant, fashionable colors at reasonable prices.

Our main reason for this disclosure is to provide the buyer with the truth behind the gemstones. One must assume that, unless a gemstone is certified unheated/untreated, it may have undergone one of the above mentioned processes. We believe in full disclosure and, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Sapphires: Testing for beryllium bulk diffusion treatment can not be undertaken exclusively by gemological testing methods and gemological equipment currently available and used everyday by the trade gemologists. Therefore, while our sapphires do not seem to display any visual evidence of beryllium bulk diffusion treatment, the possibility that this may have occurred can not be completely ruled out. Only further laboratory chemical analysis can accurately identify this treatment.
