Coloured Gemstone Styling

Cocktail Hour: Coloured Gemstone Styling

There’s something about the beginning of a new season that inspires a change in style! Whether heading into the warmth of Spring or layering up for the Autumn months, a pop of colour is the perfect way to elevate your look and your mood. 

To celebrate our stunning and vibrant new range of cocktail party-worthy gemstones, we asked two style influencers to show us their favourite gems and how to wear them. So even if it’s just mixing up a cocktail at home for now, you can get inspired to give yourself a pick-me-up with beautiful colour and sparkle.

1. “I love to layer necklaces and stack rings to elevate an evening look. Here I have incorporated tonal pairing and colour blocking of the gemstones to make a statement, and also to make a neutral coloured cocktail dress pop. Tonal pairing alongside colour blocking is very on-trend this year. 

2. I've started by layering two 10ct yellow gold chains, pairing light purple and light green gemstone pendants. Lighter coloured gemstones make it easier to match with anything, making it more versatile for different looks.  

3. Next I’ve added in an emerald pendant as the statement colour, drawing the eyeline downward to the décolletage. The emerald gemstone is an eye-capturing piece and pops amongst the other colours.  

4. The final piece I've layered on the neck is a gold double curb chain to break up the fine gold chains, this piece is super elegant and can also be worn day to evening. 

5. For the hand candy I stacked multiple oval shaped gold rings with gemstones lined with diamonds on one finger, then applied a pop of ruby with a contrasting rectangular shape." 

Brooke @brookemcauley_ 

1. “First step, pick a base colour gemstone and stick to it! I couldn't go past this stunning sky-blue topaz. It instantly lifts an outfit (plus, blue is my favourite colour).  

2. Next step, pick one extra gemstone colour you want to feature. I was drawn to the dark smoky quartz to bring some contrast into my look. 

3. Then, stack and layer! Have fun double-stacking gemstones on the one finger, or layering up around the neck. 

4. What to wear? Pick a block coloured garment from the wardrobe rather than a printed one. A block coloured outfit will act as a beautiful blank canvas, which will therefore allow those gemstones to POP.  

5. Time to whip up a cocktail!”
