At first glance, it seems that many types of colored stones aren’t as versatile as diamonds, but the truth is that colored gemstones might as well compete with them. In fact, with the right gemstone color, you can highlight the best of your personality, add vibrancy to basic looks, and break with the normal.
So, let’s talk about which gemstone accessories are especially popular and why incorporate them into your looks. Our tips are well-thought-out so that you won’t need to chase trends, but simply look for your style and choose jewelry to make you feel even more beautiful.
Gemstones by color
From morning to evening, classic to sophisticated, gemstone jewelry helps you transform your image with lots of personality.
Not to mention that even the simplest outfit can be seen in a new light when you enhance it with gemstones.
Here is a list of gemstones by color.
Garnets and rubies are gemstones that shine the brightest shades of red, ranging from a deep scarlet to lighter, pinkish undertones. If you enjoy outfits with a splash of color, these are beautiful gemstones to have in your collection. Click here to explore some examples of jewelry featuring red gemstones.
Sapphires, turquoise, aquamarine, and blue topaz are some of the most soothing jewelry colors because of their blue shade. Whether you feel the deep color of sapphires (such as Kate Middleton’s engagement ring) is a good match for you or lighter shades such as the crystal-clear blue of aquamarines, these gemstones can enhance your eye color and add an elegant touch to finish any look.

Peridots, emeralds, and green tourmalines evoke the feeling of nature and add depth and charm to outfits. Green is always a good color because it’s good to highlight other accessories you’re wearing and still look pretty neutral. Here is an example of how lovely emerald jewelry can look contrasting against the flawless sparkle of diamonds.
Pearl, mother-of-pearl, opals, and white topaz vary from transparent to milky hues, and they’re as lovely as diamonds when it comes to a gem you can pair up with nearly all looks. If you enjoy versatile pieces that beg for a closer look, most of these include a beautiful glow and even some iridescence. Here’s a sneak peek of beautiful white topaz jewelry.
Pinks & Purples
Amethyst, pink sapphires, and morganite enhance the eyes, smile, and neckline with blush undertones. They look especially lovely paired with rose gold. They’re versatile gemstone options. If you’re looking for a feminine and delicate effect, we recommend taking a look at our lovely amethyst jewelry here.
