A gemstone (also called a gem, fine gem, jewel, precious stone) is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornment.
Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone.
There are gemstones like Ruby, Jasper, Malachite, Rose Quartz, Hematite, Turquoise, amongst others.
We would be looking back at one of our most unique designs – the Customized Duke pair.
Stoned with over 200 real jet black Swarovski stones, which is from the K.Aspen black collection. The pair is one of a kind, specially picked stones, leather and stitch threads.
Swarovski crystals are man-made gems manufactured in Austria. In 1892, Daniel Swarovski invented a machine for making precision-cut, beautiful, high quality lead glass crystals using quartz, sand, and minerals.
The exact proportions of these raw materials has remained a company secret. This specialized manufacturing process ensures the highest possible degree of precision which produces brilliant crystals. They are more expensive than even glass, hence costs much more.
Wouldn’t you love to get a pair or two of K.Aspen footwear with these fantastic stones?!
