Gemstone Jewelry Styles: Silk-Knotted, Beaded or Wire-Wrapped

When it comes to gemstone jewelry, there are several different styles to choose from, each with its own unique benefits and care requirements. Let’s take a look at three popular options: silk-knotted, beaded, and wire-wrapped.

Silk-Knotted Gemstone Jewelry

Silk-Knotted Jewelry is absolutely exquisite, with each gemstone individually knotted onto a silk cord with a knot between each stone. This allows light to pass through the gems, creating a stunning sparkle. However, this delicate style requires more careful handling. Silk-knotted pieces cannot get wet at all and should be stored lying flat when not worn. Think of them like a precious baby that needs attentive care! But the payoff is a seriously eye-catching piece.

Beaded Gemstone Jewelry

Beaded necklaces and bracelets are strung on a durable wire, making them more budget-friendly than silk-knotted styles. With no knots between gemstones, more gems can be used, creating a luxurious look. The wire is strong enough to hold even large, heavy stones. While you still shouldn’t shower with beaded pieces, they can withstand some moisture better than silk-knotted jewelry.

Wire-Wrapped Gemstone Jewelry

For a unique jewelry style, consider wire-wrapped creations made fully from 14K solid gold wire. I handcraft two wire-wrapped styles:

  • Drop Necklaces

    14K Solid Gold Rainbow Moonstone Necklace, Deep Blue Fire Moonstone Drop Necklace

  • Gemmy Necklaces

These durable pieces can even be worn in the shower and have a wonderful golden presence. However, due to the significant amount of 14K gold used, wire-wrapped jewelry is more of an investment piece. But it can definitely be considered an heirloom to pass down for generations.

So which gemstone jewelry style fits your lifestyle and budget? Whether you prefer the delicate elegance of silk knotted gems, the vibrant radiance of beaded strands, or the timeless luxury of gold wire wrapped designs, there’s something for everyone. No matter which you choose, you’re guaranteeing a gorgeous gemstone masterpiece you’ll treasure for years to come.
