History: As early as 2,100 BC, mines were operating in Persia, now Iran – the source of highly prized “Persian turquoise”. Celebrated for its bright, robin's egg blue colour, for thousands of years, Persian turquoise was regarded as the finest in the world.

Cubic zirconia was first discovered by German mineralogists in 1937. The gemstone was dismissed for years until it was rediscovered by Soviet-era scientists. It was hoped that the stone could be used as a diamond-like, indestructible substance. There were also theories that it may be used in place of rubies in lasers.

Gold was generally used for a couple thousand years solely to create things such as jewelry and idols for worship. This was until around 1500 BC when the ancient empire of Egypt, which benefited greatly from its gold-bearing region, Nubia, made gold the first official medium of exchange for international trade.
