Please inquire about special orders by emailing us at prive@omigems.com and we will connect you to one of our retailer partners.

Omi Privé rings are typically created in finger size 6.5. Our eternity band design is most commonly created in finger size 7. Omi Privé ring designs can be special ordered in any finger size, as specified in 1/8 size increments. Please note that it is not recommended to size any Omi Privé ring more than one full finger size up or down from its original state; however depending on the design, each sizing is treated on a case-by-case basis to guarantee the long-term stability of the ring.

The first rule for caring for fine colored gemstone jewelry is to treat it as any possession of value. Avoid wearing gemstone jewelry during activities that could cause damage, including yard work, outdoor activities, sporting activities, cooking and cleaning, especially when using harsh chemicals, etc. As for cleaning your piece of Omi Privé, keep it simple. It is best to clean colored gemstone jewelry using a mild solution of soap and warm water. After letting the jewelry soak, gently brush with a soft-bristled brush. Rinse the jewelry thoroughly, and lay it on a soft cloth to dry. It is best to avoid cleaning colored gemstone jewelry in ultrasonic cleaners, or with harsh chemicals or abrasives. It is recommended to apply any lotions or perfumes prior to putting on colored gemstone jewelry. Pearls, opals, and emeralds should be especially protected from contact with perfumes, cosmetics and hairsprays. Store each piece of jewelry in separate sections of a jewelry box or in individual fabric pouches. For the best protection, it is recommended to have fine jewelry regularly inspected and cleaned by a trusted jeweler.

Natural gemstones come from the earth, and are mined worldwide. Some natural gemstones can be enhanced, which means they are treated in some way (such as being subjected to heat) to improve their color or clarity. Many of these treatments are accepted as common practice in the gem trade. Every gemstone in an Omi Privé design is a natural stone from the earth. If you have any further questions about specific stones and their common treatments, please email prive@omigems.com.

Laboratory-created gemstones, which can also be referred to as manufacturer-created or synthetic stones, have essentially the same chemical, physical, and optical properties as their natural gemstone counterparts. Laboratory-created gemstones do not possess the same rarity or value as natural colored gemstones, since they are grown in a laboratory and form with human intervention. Although they share chemical and physical properties, a gemological laboratory will be able to recognize the difference between a natural and synthetic stone through proper testing. Every gemstone in an Omi Privé design is natural, from the earth, and never a laboratory-created, or synthetic, stone.

Beyond traditional cutting and polishing, natural gems can often be treated in ways meant to alter or enhance their color or clarity. In addition to enhancing their appearance, the process may also improve (or in some cases diminish) the gem’s durability. It is necessary and legally required for anyone selling a gem to disclose the treatment procedure it may have received. In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission has established a set of consumer guidelines outlining the need for treatment disclosures and special care requirements. Omi Privé is responsible for disclosing all treatment for the natural gemstones within our designs. If you have a question about whether a stone you are interested in has been treated or not, please email us at prive@omigems.com.

The term “semi-precious” is somewhat misleading as it suggests that some gemstones have inferior value. Years ago, most people considered ruby, emerald and sapphire as the “precious” gemstones and all others as “semi-precious.” In truth, all natural colored gemstones are rare and precious and their prices are determined by the availability and quality of the gemstone.

Simply put, we believe that the type and color of the gemstone you select should be the one that will give you the most pleasure to wear and own. However, from a commercial perspective, colored gemstones are judged by their beauty and rarity. The same “four Cs” that establish quality in diamonds are used for colored gemstones: cut, carat weight, clarity and most importantly, color. Color: The more pure and vivid the color, the more valuable the gemstone. Certain colors of specific gemstones are deemed more rare, and thus, valuable than others. Cut: All gemstones must be cut well to attain their maximum potential for beauty. Quality cutting is what produces the brilliance and scintillation that captures the eye of the beholder. Clarity: Gemstones contain characteristic inclusions that provide proof of their natural origin. Those inclusions should not be so visible that they detract from the beauty of the gemstone; although certain exceptions are acceptable depending on the gemstone in question. Carat Weight: All other things being equal, larger gemstones are rarer. However, some gemstones, such as amethyst and tourmaline, routinely occur in very large sizes while others, such as ruby and sapphire, rarely occur in sizes above 2 to 3 carats.

A gemstone certificate or gemstone report is an official document issued by a licensed gemological laboratory that states the characteristics and qualities of a gemstone. Each of these labs is an independent authority, which performs professional examination of gemstones, according to very strict industry and government standards. With very specialized equipment, most reputable labs can determine the gemstone material, detectable treatments, country of origin, whether the stone is natural or manufactured and much more. There are a number of reputable gemological laboratories that offer gemstone report services, included but not limited to; the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), American Gemological Laboratories (AGL), European Gemological Laboratory USA (EGL), International Gemological Institute (IGI), Gemresearch Swisslab (GRS) and the Gubelin Gemological Laboratories (Gubelin). Many designs offered by Omi Privé are accompanied with a gemstone report from one or more of these reputable 3rd party labs. Some labs will only report on certain gemstones or certain gemstone characteristics, so please don’t hesistate to contact Omi Privé, should you have questions on gemological laboratory services.

Gemstones may be measured by weight, size, or both. The basic unit for weighing stones is the carat, which is equivalent to one-fifth (1/5th) of a gram. Carats are divided into 100 units, called points. For example, a half-carat gemstone weighs 0.50 carats (ct) or 50 points. Gemstones are commonly measured by size in metrics, with stone dimensions measured and documented in millimeter increments.ghs 0.50 carats (ct) or 50 points.
