Summertime Colored Gemstones

If you’re anything like us, the summertime can make you lose a little of your natural sparkle. It’s one of the year’s most fun-filled and celebratory seasons, but the oppressive heat can leave you feeling a little deflated. Fortunately, we’ve got just the thing to perk you up and restore some of your sparkle and shine: colored gemstones.

If sparkling blue water is calling your name, then sapphires are the summertime gem for you. They’re September’s birthstone and a natural choice to add elegance and class to any ensemble. Don them with your brightest red for Independence Day, or use them to accent your head-to-toe white outfit for a nautical vibe.


Has the summer heat got you seeing red? That’s a good thing in this case, because red rubies are some of our favorite gems for the summer months. They’re perfect to pair with with flirty summertime florals, or even with your red, white, and blue to show off your patriotism. Need another reason to wear them? They’re the most widely recognized and popular birthstone for July, so they make a perfect gift for summertime birthdays.

Yellow Diamond/Yellow Sapphire

There’s nothing more refreshing in the summer than a glass of ice-cold lemonade, and the gemstone equivalent are yellow diamonds and yellow sapphires. These bright stones echo the hue of our year-round sunshine, but are much more comfortable to bask in. Yellow diamonds have the added perk of being among the most sought-after gemstones, so they’re sure to add something special to your outfits this summer.


Has Arizona’s dry heat left you craving greenery? Why not add it to your summer wardrobe in the form of emeralds? They’re the perfect shade to pair with bright summertime yellows, pinks, blues, and more. And because emeralds are often cut and set very simply, they’re a wonderfully minimalistic way to accessorize for the summer.
