Gemstone jewellery makes a phenomenal addition to any jewellery collection, allowing the wearer to boldly express their unique style and add a bit of vibrance to their ensemble. Each gem has its own history, chemical makeup, and properties that make it valuable and desirable. We have put together a guide to some of the most popular gemstones in our jewellery selection at our Nash Jewellers showroom.

Sapphire drop earrings with diamond accents

Sapphires for the Cool, Calm, and Collected

These incredible stones have been worn for centuries, and though many of us picture the deep blue stones when we think of sapphires, they come in various colours. Blue sapphires, however, have long been associated with regality and romance. A major resurgence in the popularity of the stone came with the reveal of Princess Diana?s sapphire engagement ring in 1981.

This stone is an attractive option for those with a calming yet commanding presence. Blue sapphires also work phenomenally well with cooler skin tones. Opt for a pair of sapphire earrings like this diamond halo pair from Simon G. for an accessory that will frame your face in luxury.

Those with a proclivity towards boldly romantic designs will certainly cherish any piece featuring a fiery ruby. This stone is also wonderfully flattering on those with warm skin tones.
