Romancing the Stones
Whether it’s a birthstone or simply a signature hue, coloured jewellery always makes a statement, firing up any wardrobe. And when paired with white diamonds, the warmth of precious gems—sapphires, rubies, amethysts—provides balance to the cool ice. Vibrant coloured jewels have also been rock stars at auctions lately, meaning today’s glittering gift could be tomorrow’s brilliant investment.
