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

Sapphire & diamond ring set in platinum.


If sparkling blue water is calling your name, then sapphires are the summertime gem for you. They are 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. 
Heart shaped rubies with diamond halo earrings


Has the summer heat got you seeing red? That is a good thing in this case, because red rubies are some of our favorite gems for the summer months. They are perfect to pair 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.
18k yellow gold pendant featuring yellow diamonds


There is nothing more refreshing in the summer than a glass of ice-cold lemonade, and the gemstone equivalent  - yellow diamonds. 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 one of the most sought after gemstones, so they're sure to add something special to your wardrobe this summer.
