Considered rare and precious since ancient times, the amethyst is a gorgeous gemstone, with colored ranging from transparent light to opaque dark purple.

Looking absolutely regal and enchanting, the aquamarine stone spells fashion and sophistication with élan. Popularly worn as the highlight and center point of a necklace, the aquamarine gemstone brightens up any outfit and adds a very chic look to it.
The emerald's beautiful green colour and it's exquisite rarity, makes it a much coveted gemstone, very popular in the latest Dior and Gucci fashion jewellery trends this season. Brilliant additions to hold necklaces, bracelets and earrings, the emerald looks absolutely gorgeous when paired with a black sari or a black LBD or gown, drawing all eyes to the wearer, shining brighter than ever.
The most precious and valuable blue gemstone, Sapphire has been flaunted by many celebrities on the red carpet over the years.
