Accessorizing your outfits is always important when it comes to staying on trend and looking good. Jewelry is also a way of doing this, and jewelry can give you more bang for your buck because you can generally wear the same pieces with lots of different outfits to get all kinds of different effects. While jewellery trends come and go, some things never really go out of fashion, and one of these is gemstones. Depending on whether you go for precious or semi-precious stones, gemstone jewellery doesn’t have to be expensive, but can give you a great look for both the daytime and evening.
Here are some of the reasons why you should start wearing more gemstone jewellery this spring.
Gem Colors Are on Trend for Spring 2018
While you can keep your gemstone jewellery as something that you can wear for years and even pass down as a family heirloom, you can also use it as a way of following the latest trends. The color trends for spring 2018 by color experts Pantone suggest that gemstone colours will be big news for spring and summer. Look out for pastel coloured stones with hues of purple, pink and blue such as tourmaline, amethyst and rose quartz. Red stones like ruby and garnet can also fit with this season’s hottest color trends.
Show Off Some Spiritual Style
Gemstones and not just beautiful, they also have a rich and interesting history within different cultures. Some people believe that gemstones have special spiritual vibrations that can do anything from balance the wearer’s energies or chakras, through to bringing luck and even wealth.
Whether you believe in the mystical power of crystals and gems or not, it is still fun to think about, and it is also nice to think that you’re wearing something that people for thousands of years have looked upon as powerful and special.
Go for a Personalized Look
Another great thing about gemstones is that you can use them to personalize your jewelry by wearing stones that have a personal meaning to you.
There are different birthstones for every month of the year and each star sign, so wearing your own, or the birthstone of someone that you really love, can be a good way of giving sentimental meaning to your fashion jewelry. You can of course also personalize what you wear by simply choosing a gemstone in your favourite color, or one that has meaning to you for another reason – for example choosing abalone shell for your jewelry because you love the ocean.
Gemstones are easy to wear, and you can choose between highly polished and cut stones, or stones in their raw form which look natural and bohemian, giving you lots of options for both casual and dressed up looks. You can find a lot of interesting information about gems and their place in culture at Access Gems, where you can also find some great photos of different stones to help you choose which ones you like best to wear with your spring 2018 wardrobe.
