Independence Day may have come and gone, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy your patriotic wear all summer long. Just spice it up with red, white and blue gems. Steal the show anywhere you go this summer by wearing rubies, diamonds and sapphires and dress to impress. Work these stunning sparklers into your jewelry wardrobe and you will have fireworks everywhere you go this season.


Not only are rubies the birthstone for July babies, they are also an easy way to add sophistication to any outfit without  sacrificing fun! Swap your go to red lipstick for mesmerizing red ruby earrings or accent your vacation manicure with a ruby ring or bracelet. The deep tone of a ruby can make your lighter, more natural summer looks feel more grounded and thoughtful. Try wearing rubies with neutral-colored outfits, or pair them with a bathing suit cover-up before dinner at your favorite beach/poolside eatery.

Catch some rays and some attention with bright white diamonds. Yes, they are a classic, but don't let that stop you from getting creative with them! Try wearing a simple outfit, like a shift dress or a plain top with a diamond necklace that packs major visual interest. You can even mismatch your earrings or stack multicolored diamond and gemstone bracelets to give off a carefree vibe that will turn heads.

Yes, they are the September birthstone, but that doesn't mean you should keep sapphires on the shelf until Fall rolls around. Blue gems like sapphires obviously pair well with the sun, sand and surf. Keep them in mind for other summer occasions, too. They are a run choice for a company cookout or wear them to a museum if you need an air conditioned escape. Sapphires are also a great "something blue" to gift to any summer brides you know. Wear sapphires to look cool even when the temperatures are in the triple digits in Summer.
