What do we need to know about buying crystal jewellery?

Why are crystals popular?

We’ve all experienced tough times over the last several months and people are exploring alternative ways to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. Many people believe crystals hold healing powers.

What’s a common misconception?

Some people don’t think crystal jewellery can be classed as ‘fine jewellery’, but some crystals are incredibly rare and can be more valuable than lesser-quality precious stones.
