When we say hardness, we mean a gemstone’s resistance to scratching on the surface. You’ve probably heard that diamonds are the hardest substance. This means they are highly resistant to scratching other than by another diamond. There are gemstones, such as Sapphires and Rubies, that also have high levels of hardness. However, there are gemstones, such as Amethyst, that have low levels of hardness and scratch easily. Wear bridal jewelry with softer gemstones mindfully if worn on a daily basis.
