Happy Independence Day! It’s the time of year to show your true colors and if those colors are red, white and blue, you have more than a few options when it comes to gemstone jewelry. Here’s a sparkling sampling of red, white and blue gemstone options, from garnet to blue topaz.
Garnet: The rich red glimmer of a garnet is always sophisticated. This semi-precious gemstone may be the birthstone for January, but it’s an excellent pick any time of year, whether in a simple, classic setting or an eye-catching vintage style such as the Victorian Emerald-Cut Garnet Ring in 14K White Gold.
Ruby: Few gemstones have the eye-catching glamour of a ruby. The dazzling red sparkle of this timeless precious stone was once believed to be the result of a flame that burned within this stone, a testament to its fire-like beauty.
Diamond: Diamonds are the most timeless and brilliant of stones and they aren’t just for engagement rings! By themselves or paired with a red or blue gem, a diamond is always a solid pick. Try the Antique Halo Ruby and Diamond Ring for a stunning style that combines a 5mm round ruby with 82 dazzling diamonds to create a look that overflows with dazzle and timeless class.
Moissanite: Moissanite is a newcomer as a gemstone, and its ability to reflect flashes of light is helping it quickly make a name for itself. Moissanite has incredible dazzle, and when it’s paired with classic blue sapphires in the Antique Square Moissanite and Sapphire Ring in 14K White Gold it helps to create a look that’s both patriotic and glamorous.
White Sapphire: Like its blue counterpart, white sapphire is both sparkling and strong, ranking just below the diamond in hardness. This unique twist on a timeless stone is unexpected yet timeless.
White Topaz: A bargain among white gemstones, white topaz has a transparent to translucent glimmer that makes it a versatile pick. Apples of Gold carries a wide range of white topaz rings, including many that feature the same settings as their diamonds styles.
Sapphire: As one of the four classic precious gemstones, sapphire is an enduring favorite. Its deep, rich blue hue has a sparkle that calls to mind a firework against a summer night sky.
Aquamarine: With a name that means “water” and “sea,” it’s not surprising that aquamarine has a light blue glimmer that shimmers like rays of sun reflecting off of the ocean waves. Try the Tension Set Aquamarine Ring in 14K White Gold for a modern style that showcases aquamarine in simple yet striking fashion.
Blue Topaz: Blue topaz comes in several varieties, from those that resemble aquamarine to deep, rich London blue topaz. This range of hues makes blue topaz a flattering gemstone for any skin tone.
Whether worn alone or in patriotic combination, these red, white and blue gemstones are excellent picks this 4th of July! Try them to show your true colors this Independence Day.
