Due to all the different shapes, colours and designs – as well as the overall beauty – gemstone jewellery is one of the most sought-after accessories on the market.
A new year may prompt some of you to start or add to your gemstone jewellery collection, but because there’s so many out there it may be tricky to know where to start.
If you feel that 2023 is the year that you get your hands on some new gemstone pieces, let us help you with our definitive list of five gemstones to add to your collection this year.
Whether you have a prior knowledge of gemstones or whether you don’t, you will most likely be familiar with the beauty and worth of a Ruby.
With their deep red shades and vibrant lustre, Rubies are easily recognisable and one of the most desirable gems in the market. Plus, their hue can be loosely compared to 2023’s Pantone Colour of the Year: Viva Magenta.
So, for a grand new gemstone to add to your collection this year, Ruby is an undeniably strong choice.
We say it time and time again, but Tanzanite is one of the most beautiful gemstones you can own, and one of our favourites to bring to you.
Known for its rarity as well as its beauty, Tanzanite possesses two attributes that make it one of the most valuable stones in the industry. Its single-source location at the bottom of Mount Kilimanjaro means that supplies are likely to run out in the next generation or two, and the fact that not everyone can own one only adds to its desirability.
There’s never been a better time to own a Tanzanite piece of jewellery, and right here is the best place to start.
Despite earning its name from its discovery location in Labrador, Canada, good-quality Labradorite is found and mined all over the world. It's a Feldspar mineral, and is most treasured for its one-of-a-kind brilliant flashes of colour – also known as labradorescence.
Its labradorescence makes Labradorite a gemstone phenomenon in its own right, and its stunning light only makes it that much more valuable.
Luckily for us, pretty much every continent in the world has a large supply of Labradorite, and there’s not much we love more than being able to educate our audience on the wonders of this semi-precious stone. It's truly one for everyone’s collection.
It's no secret that the Diamond is arguably the most treasured gemstone we can come across. It's stronger and more durable than any other, consistently holds its value, and the entire Diamond family possesses a kind of beauty that no other gem could possibly replicate.
Each variety of Diamond is just as exquisite as the last, and their styling opportunities are endless to be able to give any look an overall shine.
Diamonds are truly incomparable with any other gemstone; we'd recommend everyone to have a Diamond in their collection, because they’re nothing short of remarkable.
Pearls are the jewel of the sea, and are one of the only gemstones on the planet that are sold pretty much exactly as they’re found. Just like other gemstones, Pearls are created by a natural process – however, Mother Nature has a unique hand in ensuring that they come out of their molluscs requiring no cutting or polishing whatsoever.
Pearls have been worn an adored for as long as we can remember, and are a common favourite among the Royal Family – particularly the late Queen Elizabeth II. However, due to their natural creation, the environment in which they’re formed has a great influence on their quality.
As a result of climate change and the environmental changes to our oceans, the quality of Pearls is always diminishing. Every time a Pearl is sourced, there is a slim to non-existent chance that the next one found will be of the same grade. Therefore, there is never a better time to buy a Pearl than right now.
We're extremely privileged to have the connections to be able to bring some of the finest Pearls the market has to offer. Regardless of their variety, Pearls should be a staple stone inside everyone’s 2023 collection.
Gemstone jewellery has an allure that cannot be offered by anything else in the world, and not just because of the value. The above stones – as well as the rest of them – add a touch of colour, shine and excellence to someone’s life, a concept near impossible to replace.
With a new year undoubtedly comes change, so make your 2023 one to remember with one Mother Nature’s finest creations.
