You're an EMERALD
Although sometimes you might be a bit jealous, you’re charismatic and ageless with your own striking style.

You're a RUBY
Romantic and passionate, you love tradition and follow your heart. You might not always enjoy being the focus of attention, but you don’t shy away from a big gesture.
The quintessential gemstone of romance, Ruby’s rich reds are truly captivating. A Ruby’s colour comes from chromium impurities in the gem’s crystal structure, without which, it would be a Sapphire!

You're a SAPPHIRE
Organised but sometimes shy, you’re hardworking and intelligent. You love vintage style and subtle elegance.
Sapphires have long been associated with royalty. The most famous Sapphire of all is probably the Dutchess of Cambridge, Katherine’s, engagement ring, which formerly belonged to Princess Diana.

You're an OPAL
You’re unique and bright, as well as organised and hardworking. You have your own refined style and love being a little quirky.
One of the most individual and mesmerising gems of all, Opal is created by water percolating through rocks, depositing silica over millennia. These silica spheres reflect the light, creating a rainbow of colours unique to each gem.
Explore our Opal collections here.
You're a PEARL
You’re elegant and timeless. You love understated beauty and don’t often enjoy being the centre of attention. You feel an affinity for the ocean and its calming influence.
The ultimate treasure of the ocean, Pearls are the ultimate in elegance. Synonymous with the golden age of Hollywood, Pearls are as sophisticated today as they were around the necks of the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.

You're a TANZANITE
You’re a rare gem – spirited and compelling. You’re not often the centre of attention, but you’re adventurous and not afraid to ask for help when you need it.
Tanzanite is a recent discovery (1967). Found in just one location in the world, the Mererani (sometimes called Merelani) Hills of Tanzania, this gem is most treasured for its pleochroism, showing blues, pinks and purples from different angles.

You're a TURQUOISE
You’re extraordinary, interesting and creative; you can take care of yourself. You don’t care what others think of you and enjoy being ‘one of a kind’.

You're a SPHENE
You’re fiery and can have a temper. Despite that, you’re extremely loyal and only want the best for your friends and family.
Sphene is an often-overlooked gem, but really shouldn’t be! With vivid greens and cognac hues, it is one of the best stones on the planet for light performance, with more fire than a Diamond.

You're a CSARITE®
You can be changeable – sometimes broody but fiercely logical. You’re intelligent and keen, but not ashamed to admit when you need help.
Csarite® is extremely rare – around 10,000 times rarer than a Diamond. It’s treasured for its ability to change colour in different lighting conditions – from burgundy to gold to greens, it is always beautiful.
