They say that diamonds are girl’s best friend. Well this spring, we beg to differ. There’s so much more to fine jewellery than a clear, sparkling diamond to call your own. For SS13, color is everything and there are so many delicious shades to get your creative style juices flowing.
Neon pop and pastels are huge on the runway and with jewellery, it’s no different. Think bright, think feminine, think summery and think lots of colors.
Here are some great trending gems for this year. Look out for them the next time you’re jewellery shopping!
Hot Gems for 2013
Lemon quartz – this color is perfect for Easter, the ideal representation of season’s most popular flower. That’s right, the humble daffodil. This flower just screams “spring” and the lemon quartz has a fresh and exciting tone that will brighten up any outfit. Looks great with summery denim and the gem works well for most casual looks. This gem is also very easy to style up for the evening too and can be mixed with gold and metallics for the ultimate evening bling!
Lavender quartz – is there anything more elegant than lavender? There’s something so old fashioned about the color lavender and as vintage fashion is hotter than ever, there has been no better time to welcome back this shade back into your jewellery collection. Lavender quartz has a beautiful iridescent and almost holographic shine which brings it right up to date with this year’s catwalk trends.
Padparadscha quartz – this is a stunning shade or orange which reminds most people of blood orange. So intense, this color is perfect for bringing out those neons and brights in your SS13 wardrobe. This is a gem designed for girls who are bold, lively and not scared to stand out from the crowd.
Rainbow moonstone – if you want something understated and ladylike, moonstone quartz is a beautiful choice. It’s not too over the top like a girl’s best friend, but it’s a quietly stunning statement which only dazzles when you look carefully. And when you do look carefully, you’ll spot all the sparkling colors of the rainbow.
Anahi Ametrine – such a rare stone that very few jewellery lovers know about. The Anahi Ametrine emulates the beautiful ombre fabrics you see all over high street and designer shops. This gorgeous stone will turn heads wherever you go and the gradient colour will have you staring at it for hours. So pretty for spring!
Mercury Mystic Topaz – a fresh and young gem perfect for girls who don’t always go for classics in their wardrobes. This stone is the epitome of summer and it’s so refreshing to look at it. Although not a jewellery classic, this stone can be worn with so many different outfits. Looks great with beach wear and summery dresses.
