5 Gemstone Rings Anyone Can Rock

5 Gemstone Rings Anyone Can Rock

Diamonds are exquisite, but if you’re looking for some extra color in your ring selection you might want to consider a gemstone ring. Gemstone rings provide a vibrant pop of color, are incredibly popular, and can be worn as right or left hand rings. They’re also a great way to add an accent color to any outfit. Here are five of the top gemstones used in rings today.

1. Birthstones - Birthstone rings are one of the most popular forms of gemstone rings today. Each month has a different birthstone, which is set in a ring either on its own or with diamond accents. January’s gemstone is the garnet, February’s is the amethyst, and March’s is the aquamarine. At Samuel’s Jewelers we carry all of these gemstones as well as gemstone rings and jewelry for the other nine months of the year. Most of our birthstone rings also come with an optional necklace and earrings as well, so you can get a complete set if you want.

http://blog.samuelsjewelers.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif2. Sapphire - Sapphires have been growing in popularity for a number of years—and today are an affordable must have for your jewelry wardrobe.  Traditional blue sapphires are more readily available, but you can also find yellow and pink sapphires, as well as a range of other colors. Yellow and Pink? Something not everyone knows is that sapphires aren’t exclusively blue. Sapphires look great in rings, especially when they’re accented with diamonds. Sapphires are also considered to be September’s gemstone, although they’re found in many varieties of rings and are very fashionable regardless of one’s birth month!

3. Ruby - Rubies are precious gemstones that have always been a favorite stone to put in rings. They’re often used to symbolize romantic love or passion, or the passion that an individual has. They range from a deep, dark red to a lighter red or pink in color. Rubies are also July’s birthstone, and like sapphires are worn regardless of birthday.

4. Emerald - Emeralds are considered a classic stone, and are often found in traditional cuts and surrounded by diamonds. They’re commonly known as May’s birthstone, but have been widely used in all types of jewelry, not just birthstone jewelry. Emeralds look great in white gold or platinum rings, but can also be accented by yellow gold. Most emeralds are a deep green color, but very rare varieties may be red.

morganitering5. Morganite – Part of the beryl family of gemstones which includes emerald and aquamarine,  Morganite is a beautiful rose colored gemstone and is usually set in rose gold. A gemstone rich in U.S. history, Morganite was made famous (and named after him) when financier J.P.Morgan purchased this unusual gemstone as a gift in the early 1900’s from Tiffany & Co.

These are the top 5 gemstones that are used in rings today, and anyone can rock them. And despite having 12 different gemstones, birthstone rings are considered one of the broadest and most popular categories of gemstone rings. They’re popular with adults, teenagers, and children alike. Use yours to make a statement, bring out the color of your eyes, or even match the color of your jeans. Versatility is your fashion friend after all. So, don’t be afraid to choose gemstones regardless of birth month, pick a color or several and accessorize!

At Samuels Jewelers we offer all of these top stones as both birthstone rings and as other pieces of fine jewelry, with an assortment of rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets for you to choose from. To see some examples of our gemstone rings and other jewelry, visit our website.

Accessorizing An Outfit: The Diamond Studs Edition

Accessorizing An Outfit: The Diamond Studs EditionDiamond stud earrings have always been in style. Always. And it’s pretty likely that they will always be in style. They’re simple, classic, and elegant enough to go with anything. That’s why they’re often the perfect way to accessorize an outfit.

Diamond studs are a great accessory for a number of reasons. The first is that they’re elegant and classy. Because of that, diamond studs show off personal style, and your high quality taste without being too flashy or overbearing. At Samuels Jewelers we carry several different types of diamond stud earrings that have all of these characteristics. You can choose from solitaire studs, princess cut solitaire earrings and more. The cut and style of the studs themselves can be matched to your personal style, or the feeling you want your overall outfit to have.
