It’s true that there are plenty of timeless jewellery pieces that never go out of style. These are typically the pieces that are passed down through generations and cherished deeply. But then some pieces are a bit more fashion-forward or trendy. One of the hottest trends for summer 2024 in terms of jewellery is gemstones. Thanks to their bright pops of colour and the way they sparkle, these pieces can add interest to just about any outfit.

If you’re in the market for a few fashionable gemstone jewellery items but aren’t sure which would suit you, you may want to start with this list. Here’s a look at the most popular gemstones in jewellery right now.

Peach Morganite

Morganite has always been a popular gemstone, but shades of peach are especially trendy for summer 2024. The gemstone can be found in hues of pink or orange, so a blend of the two gives you that stunning peach colour. For anyone following colour trends, you probably know that Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz has been deemed the colour of the year for 2024. This is a great way to showcase the colour through your jewellery.

This gemstone can be found in rings, earrings, bracelets, and pendants, so you’ve got plenty of choice. Another fabulous feature is that it’s a bit “understated” in that it can be worn with casual outfits. It won’t feel out-of-place or over-done. The gemstone also represents healing, compassion, and divine love.


When it comes to a statement piece, emeralds are typically a great choice. They are eye-catching, vivid, and tend to look quite regal. Thanks to their bright green colour, they also remind people of lush greenery, exactly what you’d find in spring and summer.

Shopping for emeralds requires a few considerations to ensure you get the best quality possible. You always want to look for an emerald that is brilliant in colour, clear, and has enough cuts to beautifully bounce light off it. Emeralds can be paired with other gemstones or worn alone.

There are no rules as to when and where to wear emerald jewelry, but it tends to look a bit dressier than other gemstones. You may want to reserve your emerald piece to dress up and go out.


We simply can’t create a list of the most popular gemstones without including diamonds. These fall into two categories—timeless and trendy. It comes down to how they are set and styled with your outfit. Diamonds can just as easily be dressed up as down, making them highly versatile.

Just like with other gemstones on this list, you need to be careful when shopping for diamonds. If you don’t know what to look for, you can easily end up overpaying for one. The “four Cs” are the criteria to use when shopping. These are cut, clarity, colour, and carat. The cost and look of the diamond will heavily influence each of these factors.

If you don’t want to spend a fortune but want something that looks impressive, sparkly halo setting rings are perfect. It gives the impression that the diamond is much bigger than it is.
