On Unique Shapes. Gemstones are time consuming to cut, requiring a high degree of skill from a trained craftsman, and glass cabochons can be equally complicated to manufacture on a large scale while keeping costs down. These constraints are only a few of the reasons you often see similar shapes of stones used in jewelry. When an unusual shape or cut is used, the manufacturer has made a decision to make something different. Look for out-of-the-ordinary shapes, like the demilune for example, for a striking look as well as a unique find.
On Color. Color plays a key role in jewelry design and in turn its collectability. Whether natural stones or glass, what exact hue of blue was used, or the combination of colors can tell you what time period a piece was made. Certain shades can be more common during a particular decade, making that piece of jewelry a classic example of the period - or - conversely a vibrant and unique shade might make it quite rare.
