Each stone has a mystery that stimulates curiosity. All we know at Finnati is diamond but we do know it all. And when it comes to seeking a stone for your perfection, we make every effort possible to craft something that you can feel your persona embodied in.

Before choosing what kind of gemstone one wants for oneself or for a beloved one, we believe it is very crucial to possess the basic knowledge about gemstones that can be your buying guide.


Opal name is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Upalla’. Upalla means something which is precious and prestigious. Opal is an opaque gemstone and it is recognised for its marvellous ‘play of colours’. Opals can be found in a variety of colours depending on what conditions they are formed in. Opal is believed to be the source of fortune when one takes possession of an opal.


Sapphires are highly precious gemstones. Sapphires are the most favourable gemstones when it comes to the solitaire engagement ring as they are intensely saturated and velvety. Some of the sapphires often contain delicate intersecting needles of rutile that gemologists call silk.


When it comes to the most powerful, charismatic and solitary gemstones, an illusion of diamonds suddenly comes to our minds, but, in fact, emeralds are a lot rarer than diamonds and, therefore, often calls for a higher price. Emeralds are one of the rarest gemstones. Unlike other gemstones that can be found in various colours, emeralds are only found in the hues of greens. Emeralds also hold the ancient folklore tales that if you wanted to know if your lover’s promise holds honesty, it was believed that emeralds could act as a type of truth potion, helping to decrypt if they were being honest.


A lustrous and brilliant gemstone, topaz possesses such a solitary magnificence that they can find an ultimate solace in a piece of jewellery and magnify its brilliance. With good hardness and desirable colours, topaz has a quality that beams with unmatched elegance which makes it an ideal gemstone. Topaz exhibits an alluring contrast and it can even reform its shine to show different colours in different crystal directions.


Audrey Hepburn, “There is a shade of red in every woman.” The name ‘Ruby’ is derived from the Latin word ‘Rebrum’ which means red. Rubies are known for their romantic and pure red hues, unlike any other gemstone that makes it stand out in a piece of jewellery. Rubies have a quality to touch the hearts of people. In addition to that, ruby is a stone for fame and relationship as it is closely associated with the sun.


A Tourmaline gemstone is one of the most colourful gemstones. The reason why Tourmaline is so colourful is that it passes through a rainbow on its way to earth, bringing with it all sorts of colours. Being richly coloured, tourmaline is the semi-precious stone and have a wide variety of exciting colours with one of the widest colour ranges of any gem.
