Not all gemstones come in classic ‘jewel tones’. Many are known for their rich hues, but there are plenty of pastel gemstones for those that prefer a softer palette.
If you’re not sure where to start, look to your own wardrobe for inspiration. What colors do you frequently see?
If you’re a fan of soft pastels, you’ll enjoy delicately colored gemstones like morganite or light shades of spinel.
If earthy tones and neutrals are your go-to, you’ll love teal and yellow sapphires.
Those that mostly stick to black and white can choose gems with rich hues that create a striking pop of color, like classic blue sapphires or tourmaline.
First there was the girl with the pearl earring. Why not be known as the girl with the sapphire ring? Having a signature piece of jewelry will help you develop your personal style and can act as a source of empowerment.
Look for a timeless design that will match with everything, like a solitaire ring or a simple pendant. You’ll want something understated enough that it won’t look strange with casual styles, but elegant enough that it will seamlessly pair with occasion wear. People will begin to associate you with your fabulous piece of gemstone jewelry, meaning you will always look put-together in their mind!
You can also use the traditional symbolism of your gem to provide you with inspiration and motivation throughout the day. For example, sapphires have long been known as wisdom stones. One quick look at your signature piece will remind you of their deeper meaning, and how you can apply it to your everyday life.
If you really want your jewelry to be the star of the show, work your outfit around your gems! Bigger statement pieces are perfect as finishing touches for evening wear and special occasion looks. Pair them with simple styles, like a classic LBD, to really make the color of the gemstones stand out.
Dainty pieces work best for elevating casual wear. From adding a feminine touch to athleisure to dressing up minimalist t-shirt and jean looks, you can always count on gemstone jewelry to bring your outfit to the next level.
Gemstone jewelry is a no-brainer for those that love color. Create a bold, monochromatic look by wearing colors that match your gemstone jewelry.
You can choose colors that naturally speak to you, or look to the principles of color therapy to add extra meaning to your ensemble:
There are countless ways that gemstone jewelry can complement your daily outfits. Whether you’re looking to add boldness to your look through color or you simply want jewelry with a deeper meaning, there’s a gemstone piece (or three) that has your name on it.
