Trending: Coloured Gemstones

Summer has arrived!

Yes, we know our crazy weather can still have you wearing a sundress one day and wellies and a mac the next! But there’s one summer trend you can rock come rain or shine: coloured gemstones.

The A-List know how to work bold and beautiful jewels; whether it’s a wedding ring, think Kate Middleton’s sapphire engagement ring, or a statement piece – who could miss Julia Roberts in that stunning emerald necklace at Cannes Film Festival last month?! Coloured gemstones are all about bringing a vibrant pop of colour to your look.

So let us walk you through the colours that are trending for Spring Summer 2016 and the jewellery you’ll want this season.


Tanzanite is one of the hottest gemstones at the moment and is one of our favourites. Its blue hue with a hint of purple gives it this wonderful colour. You will get all the complements in this stunning Silver & 9ct Rose Gold Diamond and Tanzanite Cluster Ring below.
