Let’s Talk Gemstones

Gemstones have been an integral part of the jewelry industry for many generations. And although gemstones do not enjoy quite the level of popularity that diamonds do, the fact is that the jewelry industry today offers a tremendous selection of gemstone jewelry – everything from sapphire earrings with dark blue sapphire gemstones, emerald earrings with stud or drop design, silver necklaces with gemstones and even engagement gemstone rings. From solitaire engagement rings to bypass necklaces, jewelry store displays are filled with an unprecedented selection of both traditional designs to contemporary, avant-garde and abstract designs to choose from. One of the greatest advantages to gemstones is the ability to integrate natural color into your wardrobe. For instance, if you own several red dresses and gowns, and are looking for a matching necklace, then perhaps a necklace with ruby, red agate, red garnet or Imperial topaz gemstones can be a perfect match. The exact shade of red will help you narrow down the particular gemstone, but the possibilities are certainly vast. On the other hand, if you are looking to accessorize a collection of pink dresses and outfits, a pink sapphire, pink agate or rose quartz necklace or pair of earrings or both, may fit right in. There are additional gemstone possibilities in other colors, such as blue, green yellow and more. In this issue of DT Era we discover the application of gemstones to jewelry designs we are already familiar with, to help put the fashion potential in perspective.

As you can see, one of these sapphire stud earrings features a round dark blue sapphire and the other one – a princess cut sapphire.

Both of these sapphire earrings offer class and vivacity to contribute to your final look.
