5 reasons to say YES to a coloured gemstone


In a world of mass produced and ordinary, why not choose a gemstone that is extraordinary and actually rare?


Did you know that diamonds are not as rare as advertised? Gasp!


I love diamonds, I really do, but having seen hundreds of them over my decade in this industry, they do all just blend into one colourless ... , even the REALLY BIG ONES.

Coloured gemstones on the other hand stay with me, they get rooted into my memory and I'll tell you why. Have you ever met "the one that got away"? Thats what it's like when you see a coloured gemstone of your dreams, be it a stunning royal blue, a gorgeous bubblegum pink or a canary yellow, the colour truly cannot be replicated.


There will always be other diamonds, but there will never be the same coloured gemstone.

Without further ado, say YES to a coloured gemstone if:

  1. you are looking for something totally unique and one-of-a-kind

  2. you want to add a pop of colour to your everyday life

  3. you want to make a statement

  4. you are considering a larger stone for your budget

  5. you love a fancy cut such as oval, pear or elongated cushion (gemstones are typically cut to suit a more elongated shape, however round options are also available)
