Gemstones are also used in the creation of decoration and luxury art products such as hard stone carvings and antiquity gems due to their aesthetics.

Certain gemstones are also treated to look like other precious gemstones. Imitation gemstones of this type are used in jewelry making. Cubic zirconia and synthetic moissanite, which is a synthetic diamond imitation, are two examples of these imitation gemstones.
