Diamonds are not the only rocks that are a girl’s best friend. Beautiful gemstones like onyx, garnet, amazonite, aquamarine, and yellow jade add instant splashes of color and glamour to any ensemble. Combined with metals like sterling silver, gold, and even copper, our selection of gemstone earrings is sure to achieve that statement-making look you’re aiming for. Gemstones can be found in a wide array of colors, and many women choose certain gemstones for their cleansing and therapeutic properties. These precious stones are also associated with birth months. For example, emerald is the birthstone of May, while ruby is the birthstone of July. The swank and charismatic appeal of gemstones is what makes these colorful rocks a favorite focal piece on modern earrings.

Choosing the Right Colors of Gemstone Jewelry
If you're looking to add a pop of color to an ensemble, you can't go wrong with a pair of gemstone earrings. You can find styles that are made for day and for night, and we have hoops, dangles, chandelier earrings and many other varieties available to suit your tastes. At John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry, we like to experiment with traditional gemstones that you are likely familiar with, such as onyx and amethyst as well as less well-known stones like amazonite and serpentine. The right variety of stones used in our designs means that we truly have a rainbow of options available.
To help you select the perfect hue, here are some ideas about how to mix and match gemstone earrings with ensembles:
1. Stick to Color Families. A foolproof way to mix colors is to keep to one family with your outfit and accessories. If you're wearing earth tones, choose green, brown, orange or gold jewelry. Match pastel clothing with light pink, light blue, lavender or minty green. Wearing a jewel toned top or dress? Pick carnelian red, dark purple, deep blue or bright green jewelry.
2. Pick Opposites. Every color has an opposite that balances its color. The most common opposite pairings are:
- Blue and red
- Orange and violet blue
- Yellow and purple
- Green and magenta
- Aqua and pink
3. Play with Darks and Lights. Another strategy for pairing colors is to wear darker toned gemstones with a light top or dress or vice versa. For example, you could wear pine green gemstone jewelry with a pale green top or wear baby blue gemstone earrings with a navy blue dress.
4. Bring Out a Print. Wearing something printed? Pick a color in the pattern to bring out with your jewelry. Choosing an accent color in the pattern will make for a striking contrast while wearing a dominant color will create a more blended look.
