Summer is a time when the earth is drenched with color and sunshine and Apples of Gold carries a wide variety of gemstone rings that perfectly capture the warmth and vibrancy of this time of year. While the sparkle of many gemstones can bring to mind rays of sunlight or the hues of summer flowers, certain gemstones take summer style to a new level.
From bathing suits to party dresses, both bright pink and bright yellow are trendy in the fashion world this summer, and this trend translates well into the world of jewelry. Gemstone rings in these hues can add pops of personality to any outfit and are a fun choice for days filled with sun.
Pink topaz and Citrine embody the perfect shades of yellow and pink for this season and rings that showcase them are ideal additions to your jewelry repertoire this summer. Our top picks for the season feature these two stones and are sure to bring all the right kinds of attention.

This bright gem adds a fun and lively touch to traditional styles. The Three Stone Pink Topaz Ring features a 0.40 carat princess-cut pink topaz, hugged by two smaller round gems in the same hue, all set in cool 14K white gold.
If you’d prefer to stray a little from the classics, try the 2.33 Carat Oval Shape Pink Topaz and Diamond Ring in 10K White Gold. The unique setting of this ring surrounds the center stone with a chain design, which is also incorporated into the band. Six diamonds accent each side of this one-of-a-kind style.
Many women choose to go a little bolder in their summer style choices than they do during the rest of the year, and Apples of Gold’s collection of pink topaz rings offers a number of ways to leave any hint of shyness in the dust.

This dazzling ½” high gemstone is set off by two dozen diamonds.
Top Citrine Selections
It’s hard not to smile when you look at citrine. Rings that feature this gemstone provide the ultimate hit of sunshine, even on the rainiest day. This stone’s name comes from the French word for lemon—not a surprise when you see its bright, golden color.
As a type of quartz, citrine is resilient, resisting scratches and making it an ideal pick for active summer events. Its lively color will take you from a walk in the park to a barbeque by the pool to a summer evening party, all without missing a beat.
Declare your love for summer with the Heart Shaped Citrine and Diamond Ring. Set in 14K yellow gold for an extra dose of sunniness, a blazingly beautiful citrine heart is accented by five round diamonds.
For a celebration of the laid-back feel of summer that’s as easy as a tall glass of iced tea, adorn your finger with one of Apples of Gold’s vintage-inspired citrine rings. The Victorian Floral Oval Citrine Ring in .925 Sterling Silver calls to mind a picnic on the lawn, with its large golden-hued stone and a delicate engraved design that’s inspired by the looks of a century ago.
Citrine solitaires add simple bursts of sunshine to your fingers, making them prefect all summer long. Choose the Citrine Gemstone Solitaire Ring in popular 14K white gold, or in yellow gold or sterling silver.

An emerald-cut citrine is framed by diamonds and set on a diamond-drenched band. In 14K white gold it’s perfect for a special occasion and adds a festive sensibility to any summer ensemble.
