Pastels are popping up everywhere this spring! From dresses to ballet flats to sunglasses, light greens, pinks and purples are making a splash—and jewelry is no exception. However, unlike a pair of mint green skinny jeans, unique gemstone rings that feature pastel-colored stones will be just as wearable next season, and for many seasons to come, as they are today.
Pastel-colored gemstone rings are always excellent picks for spring and summer. Stones such as green amethyst, pink sapphire and kunzite are not only on-trend; they provide light-colored sparkle that’s perpetually elegant and refreshing.
Green amethyst rings are particularly refreshing picks for spring and summer. Their soft yet dazzling light green sparkle gorgeously portrays the color of new life, giving off a calming sparkle that somehow manages to be both soothing and full of energy.
For a ring that both display this life-filled color with time-honored, botanically-inspired touches, don’t miss the Vintage Leaf Green Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold. This feminine piece features a 6mm round topaz and places it on an antique-style band of 14K white gold. A finely-carved leaf motif adorns this band, complementing green amethyst’s ability to portray life and adding a welcome taste of the past. In addition, this ring contains a surprise for the wearer: a tiny heart is hidden in the setting underneath the gemstone, communicating a secret message of affection.
If you’d rather a bolder take on the pastel trend, try one of Apples of Gold’s pink sapphire rings. These pieces strike the perfect balance between bold sparkle and a color that’s long been considered the most girly of hues.
While pink sapphire rings of any kind can add an eye-catching touch to any outfit, if you’re looking for one that will really turn heads (for all the right reasons), try the Asscher-Cut Pink Sapphire and Diamond Cluster Ring. This show-stopping piece creates a never-fading blossom that can take any outfit from blah to brilliant. A 5mm Asscher-cut pink sapphire forms the center of this flower, immediately drawing the eye, while diamonds serve as sparkling accents. These glittering stones are arranged in two concentric circles, one inner circle of round stones that are spaced tightly together, an outer circle of smaller diamonds that nestle in between their larger counterparts to create the illusion of multiple layers of petals.
If you’re attracted to pink, but would rather wear a shade that’s more subdued than the daring hue of pink sapphire, consider the Vintage Rose Kunzite Ring in 14K White Gold. This Victorian-inspired ring features an 8mm x 10mm oval-shaped kunzite, a soft pink-hued stone with just a touch of violet. Holding this stone is a setting that’s been lavishly carved with floral motifs, both underneath the stone and cascading down the slender band. This lovely ring is fresh and feminine, perfect for the season.
Gemstone rings that feature light-colored stones are an excellent way to wear the pastel trend. In addition to being spot-on stylish today, they’ll still be in good taste for many seasons to come.
