Semi-Precious Gemstone Jewellery

There’s nothing semi about semi-precious gemstones. They are, in fact, full on  brilliant.

While many precious diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds stay mostly  locked in one’s jewellery box, semi-precious gemstones are perfect for everyday wear. They easily take centre stage and shine bright under the sun’s daily spotlight. When it comes to these vibrant semi-precious gemstones, there are a lot more than just four to choose from. This means that there’s an array of colours, textures and distinctive qualities available for you to wear and enjoy.

Rose quartz, turquoise, pearl, aquamarine, garnet, amethyst, carnelian, jade, agate, chalcedony, peridot, and lapis...the list goes on. These are just a handful of the beautiful types of semi-precious gemstones. With so many varying gemstone colours, you practically have a whole rainbow to choose from. Of course, that’s not even taking into account the many wonderful and one of a kind jewellery pieces that they’re designed into.

What’s great about semi-precious gemstones is that they’re entirely versatile and, depending on the size and design, they can take you from day to night. A minimalist necklace with a dainty citrine or garnet pendant is ideal to wear every day. You can even layer it on with multiple cascading necklaces, and mix and match it with varying outfits. Similarly, classic stud earrings or drop earrings designed with freshwater pearls, amethyst or topaz can immediately elevate any outfit. You can also pair them with your favourite ear cuff to create an edgier look.

When it comes to rings, don’t think that the solitaire setting is only meant for diamonds. Far from it. A solitaire ring with a round cut labradorite, a cushion cut moonstone, or an oval cut onyx would be an eye-catching addition on any of your fingers.

Semi-precious gemstones are not only intended for simple, classic designs. Short or long beaded necklaces and large or small beaded bracelets made with a combination of semi-precious gemstones, such as moonstone, rose quartz and blue topaz, have a playful and youthful feel. You can stack the bracelets on your arm or layer the necklaces against your chest for a fun, casual, and contemporary look. On the other hand, if bright and bold jewellery is more your style, then you need not look any further than some of the most popular semi-precious gemstones.

Long, dangling rose quartz earrings, dramatic tassel earrings made of green jade,
large turquoise hoop earrings, or moonstone chandelier earrings are just a few styles that will surely make a fashion statement the moment you put them on. Speaking of statement pieces, semi-precious stones can also be designed into large rings and even unique hair accessories that will add a whole new dimension to your outfit.

Whether designed as an understated necklace, bright and bold earrings, a large bauble on your finger, colourful arm candy, or even a shimmery addition to your hair, your jewellery box would be incomplete without a selection of your favourite semi-precious gemstones.
