Questions To Pose About Effortless Systems
To complement her skills, she recently took up a course at the Gemology Institute of America. Today, Tim Tam’s designs reach as far as New York, Singapore and the Middle East. Lifestyle Feature ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: Based on her experience, semi-precious stones like rubies and tanzanite are getting harder to mine, and therefore, are becoming collectors’ items. She feels that gemstones will become lesser and lesser in the long run, and as the rules of economics go, the lower the supply, the higher the price. Depending on the quality, jades, rubies and sapphires most especially, can be more expensive than silver and gold, she said. It is not only the stones’ quality that dictates its price, it is also hard to cut stones, so some cuts are more expensive than others. Tim Tam gives as an example stones from Madagascar, the only place in the world that does the so-called “pineapple cut.” “Every stone requires a different kind of cut, otherwise, its value is diminished, so the stone should come from the place specializing on such cutting,” she explained. Besides cut and quality, she picks her stones based on the powers they emit—jade, for example, is not only good for collecting and investing but also for the well-being. It is believed to usher in health, prosperity, peace of mind and wealth. “It’s also a good heirloom piece because its power can be transferred,” Tim Tam said.
