Awards show season has seen a gorgeous array of gemstones being paraded up red carpets from London to Los Angeles: let's take a look at some of the key trends of 2016!
One of the biggest stories this year was emeralds, particularly in statement earrings. Wearing the jewel in the photos above are Jennifer Garner, Saoirse Ronan, Julianne Moore, Laverne Cox and Jaimie Alexander, but my absolute favourites are Taraji P. Henson's giant emerald drops (top left), by Kimberley McDonald.
Two other gemstones particularly stood out on the red carpet this year: ruby and sapphire.
On the top row are Annabelle Wallis and Charlotte Rampling, both looking utterly regal in their ruby earrings by Chopard and De Grisogono.
Finally, my very favourite piece of jewellery worn on the red carpet in 2016 has to be Leslie Mann's Irene Neuwirth choker of opals and tourmalines. If you're looking to commission a piece as individual as this, we can supply all of the gemstones you need, from Ethiopian opals, to tourmaline in an array of cuts and shades (check out this watermelon tourmaline in an emerald cut). We also have the celebrated Paraiba tourmaline and tourmaline cabochon.
We will explore these stones in more detail in October, whose birthstones are the opal and tourmaline.
