That added dash of color that we often seek to complement our look has arrived in the form of gemstones. Diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds are always at the top of our wish lists, but day-to-day jewelry often calls for more affordable gemstones rather than precious stones. The year’s fashion trends have pushed a select few stones to the forefront. Among the hottest gemstones in jewelry right now:

Rose Quartz
Rose quartz was a Pantone color of the year, so it stands to reason that this beautiful gemstone has been turning heads. Because big colored gemstone rings are all the rage, rose quartz has found its way to our fingers, often with a chunk gold base. This quartz is also great for the current trend in rough, organic cuts in stones, whether for rings, necklaces or pendants. An added perk: rose quartz is known as the “love stone,” so the mineral’s energy helps wearers balance emotions and encourage love and happiness.

Pearl
Although not technically a stone, we have to make way for one of the hottest trends of the year. Pearls have turned heads on catwalks and runways paired with everything from jeans to suits, often layered. Because they symbolize purity — and because they’re such a timeless standard — pearls enjoy constant comebacks on the fashion radar.

Amethyst
The purple beauty we know as the amethyst has been a mainstay in gemstone jewelry designs for quite some time, yet it doesn’t lose its trendy vibe. That’s one of the reasons they’re such a hot gemstone right now. Another reason? The amethyst looks more expensive than it is, so it makes for a dazzling yet affordable alternative to the emerald or sapphire. Its affordability also allows us to go big. Often associated with wisdom, amethysts also look as beautiful set on gold as they do on silver settings, which is why we’re seeing them everywhere.
