Stretching back thousands of years, gemstones have been a sacred part of the earliest civilizations. Precious gems are naturally occurring—a gift from the earth that continues to shower us in radiant beauty. Each with a distinct, captivating color, gemstones differ in many ways beyond their appearance. We like to think gemstone jewelry makes the most out of showcasing these vibrant stones to their full potential.
Discover how to find the right gemstone to add to your jewelry collection, with special attention to the meaning it will carry as you wear it. From sapphires to rubies, take a deep dive into the world of jewels from the experts at Ella Rose.
What is the Meaning Behind Ruby?
Regarded as one of the most precious stones, rubies are vividly enchanting. Coined with the moniker “King of the Gems,” it’s no wonder these stones are believed to bring power, courage, and good fortune to all who wear them. Embrace confidence and a zest for life when you don ruby jewelry.
If a 15th anniversary is on the horizon, ruby is the traditional gemstone to gift. However, this fiery, passionate stone is the perfect present for any occasion, adding romance wrapped up in a delicate package.
We recommend this 14k white gold ruby diamond halo pendant. The pear-shaped stone is flawlessly cut to showcase the vibrant depth of color rubies are known for. At Ella Rose, we believe diamond accents bring out the best in our gemstones so you will find many pieces with a shining halo of light.
What is the Meaning Behind Sapphire?
Considered another one of the big three, sapphire symbolizes loyalty, wisdom and truth. Ranked as the most valuable colored gemstone in the world, sapphires are sought-after for their entrancing blue hue.
Sapphire is the gemstone of choice to celebrate a five-year anniversary. However, sapphire jewelry can also be worn as “something blue” on your wedding day. Those lucky enough to be born in September have sapphire as their birthstone, and often feel particularly connected to the jewel.
Draw attention to your delicate features with a pair of blue sapphire stud earrings. The vivid blue sapphire is breathtaking and stands in stark contrast to the icy white gold setting and shimmering diamond halo. The deep blue hue calls to those drawn to water, making these earrings particularly suited for summer.
What is the Meaning Behind Emerald?
If you’re looking for new beginnings, emerald might be the gemstone for you. The jewel is said to symbolize fertility, spiritual awakening, vitality, and protection. It’s the last gemstone in the big three to make an appearance here, and it’s clear to see why it made the list. The lush green stone is spectacular to look at and brings to mind images of spring with a renewing energy.
Emerald marks the 20th anniversary, but if you don’t want to wait that long—we don’t blame you! May babies possess emerald as their birthstone, a fortunate blessing to carry through life. Anyone who receives a piece of emerald jewelry will likely be head over heels.
Our jewelry pick for this striking stone is our 14k white gold east-west oval emerald pendant necklace. The gorgeous statement piece will be an elegant addition to any jewelry collection. Do note emerald jewelry must be taken care of properly and cleaned gently because the delicate stone can scratch and chip. With the right amount of care, love and support, emerald could be the one for you!
