Listen, we could go on and on about the number of jewelry trends that have been popping up on our radars lately. From seashell-inspired pieces to classic, everyday minimalism, there’s thankfully now a jewelry style for every type of fashion girl in the book. But if you’re looking for a trend that will work for your every day and stand out from your daintier pieces, gemstone jewelry is exactly what you’ll want.
Though there was a clear shift away from colorful gemstones to diamonds and simpler metal pieces, we’ve noticed a newfound craving and official return to the gemstone trend. As a popular trend in ’90s and early ’00s, stones such as sapphire, ruby, and opal were typically worn as birthstones. And let’s be honest: Who doesn’t love even the slightest bit of personalization—even if it’s as minor as your birth month? This time around, the trend appears to be in reaction to the popularity of minimalist and sculptural pieces, adding an extra flair to any ensemble. See what we mean below, with our favorite gemstone pieces to wear on the regular.
