How do I rock the Color of the Year 2018?
With precious rocks of course 😉
Jewelry has the power to be the one thing that makes you feel unique. Which is why I always encourage people to get jewelry exclusively designed for themselves. So if you want to own a trendy yet exclusive piece of bling, here’s a list of the top 10 gemstones that I suggest you should go for –
Precious and powerful, this stone ranges from a few hundred and can go up to thousands of rupees! The color and brilliance of these stones make the jewelry look precious!
2) Purple Ruby
Amazed? I was too! My first purple ruby was a very clear and cushion stone. I didn’t believe it was a ruby until I took it to my college and got it checked by my professors because I never thought that there could be a purple ruby! Red and pinkish hues are most common and desirable, but these precious stones are also found in some other hues and shades and purple is one of them.
3) Purple Sapphire
Compared to other purple stones, purple sapphire is much rare, it sparkles better and it is even more durable!
Red is the most demanded color in spinel, so you might get your hands on a purple spinel for a cheaper price. However, it is not very common so you may not find it in many jewelry stores.
Tanzanites aren’t as hard as spinel or sapphire, but their color saturation is what makes them so beautiful.
A beautiful stone that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. Large stones can be used to make statement jewelry pieces at affordable prices.
Another semi precious choice for your trendy jewelry is a purple Garnet! They have a hint of reddish hues and looks beautiful when set in yellow gold.
Now here’s a magical stone for you! This gemstone shows different colors in different light sources. It will look like an amethyst in incandescent light and like an emerald in daylight! Pretty fascinating, huh?
9) Rubellite Tourmaline
If you prefer the warm shade of violet, rubellite tourmaline is surely a hot choice.
10) Sugilite, Charoite and Charolite
To create a statement look with opaque and uncut stones or beads, these gems can be used to add the wow factor to your design!
If you’re simply looking for a pop of color, there are various ceramic stones available in purple too! You can still get a fabulous design if you choose the right designer 😉
