gemstones go well with each other

Every woman will be delighted with precious jewelry. But it is worth remembering that not only the metal from which the jewelry is made plays a vital role in creating an image and a complete look. The stones serve as a harmonious addition to outfits, demonstrate the status of their owner, embody the most cherished dreams, and influence self-expression. Thanks to the stones in jewelry, you can emphasize your individuality and originality.

The jewelry industry has a rich offer of jewelry, which can contain several gems at once, sometimes not quite matching each other. Therefore, in order for jewelry with gemstones to delight with beauty and bring grace to the owner's image, it is worth choosing them by the color scheme and taking into account each of its certain criteria. In this article, we will share the most important of them so that you easily and completely understand which gems work well with each other.

Selection of gemstones by color

Matching gemstones by color is an important aspect when choosing jewelry. For example, colorless transparent stones (diamond, sapphire, spinel) are combined with all transparent stones and with some translucent ones, but far from all opaque ones, except for black onyx, jet, etc. Black stones, in turn, do not go well with crimson, brown, blue-violet, and white can be combined with stones of any color. Therefore, when combining colored stones, one should take into account the warmth of shades and brightness:

Selection of gemstones by color

  • pastel colors look better in combination with the same pastel tones
  • deep and rich colors of stones go well with each other

There are also other tips that include:

  • Additional gemstones. To make jewelry with additional gemstones, you need to guide by the opposite colors to each other on the color scale. Thus, they will seem to balance. For example, purple and yellow (amethyst and heliodor) or red and green (ruby and sapphire).
  • Analogous shades. If you look at the color scheme, you will notice that the shades close to each other seem to work together. Therefore, you can start from one gemstone color and end by the third near it to build an interesting combination. Examples: red and orange (ruby and topaz), green and blue (chrysolite and tourmaline).
  • Monochromia. All blue (aquamarine, blue topaz, sapphire, tanzanite), all green (emerald, chrysolite), all red (ruby, garnet, pink sapphire), all purple (amethyst, tanzanite), all yellow (citrine, zircon, heliodor), or any other colors with similar tones can go well with each other.

In addition, there is a system for selecting gemstone jewelry depending on the combination of colors and shades of skin, eyes, and hair of people – a well-known system of 4 season color types: “winter”, “spring”, “summer”, and “autumn”. Thus, the following main trends can be distinguished:

  • Winter. This type contains mostly cool, icy colors, which are famous for high contrast and brightness. This includes colors such as holly red, emerald green, cobalt blue, and bright black and white. For representatives of the winter type, moonstone, morganite, black sapphire and agate, dark red ruby, dark green emerald, jade, green kunzite, aquamarine, and amethyst are suitable.
  • Spring. As for this type, gemstones are characterized by warm greens, yellows, orange-reds, very peachy pinks. For example, very bright colors of blue sapphire, yellow topaz, red amethyst, can suit "Spring". In addition, pearls of warm cream shades, yellow and red garnet, topaz, heliodor, etc are the best choice for spring types.
  • Autumn. Basically, this time is characterized by warm golden-earthy tones. Also, shades of the autumn type are golden, reddish, warm, like golden yellow topazes, garnets, deep red rubies, as well as bright chrysolites, yellow and sandy citrines, and so on.
  • Summer. It includes mostly soft and cool colors. The summer type will look great with such gemstones as carnelian, pink sapphire, pink tourmaline, ruby, garnet, opal, and aquamarine.

Without a doubt, self-expression is how a person sees and feels. Therefore, first of all, we recommend listening to yourself. If you like this or that stone, then no rules will prohibit you from wearing it with another. And yet, if you are not completely sure which gemstones go well with each other, then use our article to bring your image as close as possible to the ideal.
