Coloured Gemstone Jewellery

Coloured gemstones have been sought after for many centuries across various civilisations. From lapis lazuli and jade in ancient times, humans have had a long-held fascination for coloured gemstones, attributing them with inspirational and healing properties. The fascination for precious and semi-precious gemstones continues to this day. From the deep sea blue of the sapphire to the earthy warmth of the garnet, the beauty of coloured gemstones is undeniable.

For this reason, coloured gemstone jewellery is a popular alternative to diamond jewellery. In fact some couples choose to have engagement rings featuring a coloured gemstone, such as a sapphire. At Raffini Jewellers, we believe the striking beauty of gemstone jewellery is breathtaking. Whether you are looking for precious gemstones such as sapphires, rubies, emeralds, aquamarine or tanzanite, at Raffini Jewellers you can choose from a wide variety of coloured gemstones. Consult with Raffini Jewellers to create your individual piece of hand-crafted jewellery showcasing the beauty of your chosen coloured gemstone.

When buying precious gemstones three points should be taken into consideration – hue, saturation and tone. To find out more about these points read the Coloured Gemstone Education section of our website. Here you will also find information about precious gemstones and semi-precious gemstones such as Aquamarine, Tourmaline, Tanzanite, Citrine, Garnet and Peridot.

Birthstone Jewellery also incorporates an array of coloured gemstones. Depending on the month of birth, you may choose from Amethyst, Topaz, Moonstone, Opals or other coloured gemstones to make a custom made ring, pendant or earrings. Birthstone Jewellery makes a thoughtful, personalised gift for a special occasion. See our Birthstones section for the list of Birthstones according to the months of the year.

If you are looking for an anniversary gift see our list of Anniversary Gemstones, which has a comprehensive list of coloured gemstones associated with specific anniversaries. Raffini Jewellers can custom-make beautiful items of jewellery with your chosen Anniversary Gemstone - a perfect gift with great sentimental value.
