Discovering Unique Gemstone Combinations for Jewelry

When you think of combining gemstones, the most common combinations are ruby/diamond, sapphire/diamond, emerald/diamond. However, there is an incredible variety of gemstones that when combined together, can create a master piece :)

When you think outside of the box, it is amazing to see and discover the unique combinations of gemstones that can be combined.

Clear stones can be combined with opaque or translucent gems, as well as gemstones that have natural inclusions or other unique features such as moonstone's shimmer aka adularescence can be combined with other gemstones with unique features.

Imagine a light grey moonstone combined with an opal. A light grey, semi-translucent opal with the white light floating across the stone beside a white opal that emits an explosion of colors. Its an incredible combination, because they are two such diverse stones each with their own unique characteristic.

You can see from the rings pictured here how diverse the combinations can be and how absolutely breathtaking they are.
I love the upper pinkish tourmaline that is combined with the rich dark rubies, and the lime green peridot combined with the rich forest green emeralds. Another favorite is light blue topaz combined with royal blue sapphires.
Be flamboyant, free-spirited and have fun in exploring all the dimensions of gemstones' colors.
I would love to hear from you and what you have come up with.
Stay positive always,
