Your wardrobe is not complete without a few key accessories. And we're not just talking about the basics like a great pair of sunglasses or a go-to handbag. We're talking about those unique pieces that add personality and pizzazz to your look.

One of our favorite ways to accessorize is with jewelry. But not just any jewelry – we love rocks! Big, bold, statement stones in particular. Whether you're looking for something to wear on a night out or to elevate your everyday style, these five stones are sure to do the trick.


Diamonds are truly a wonder of nature. With their immense sparkle and incomparable beauty, they have been one of the most coveted gems for centuries. But diamonds are not just beautiful - they're also incredibly strong. Diamonds are the hardest natural material known today, with an ultra-tough surface that is nearly impossible to scratch or break. This strong material is not only used in jewelry and engagement rings but also has many practical applications in the industry thanks to its impressive durability. Whether it's creating nuclear reactors or coatings for engines, diamonds continue to amaze us with their incredible strength, making them both a symbol of everlasting love and fortitude.


Rubies have been a beloved adornment for centuries, their elegant deep red hue capturing the eye everywhere these stones appear. As one of the four precious gemstones, rubies are a symbol of passion and prosperity in many cultures, with regal marriages or special ceremonies adorned with jewels from these beautiful red gems. The Romans believed that rubies would bring good luck and wisdom to those who wore them, and even today they are treasured by many as a beautiful reminder of love, fortune, and social standing.


Sapphires are one of the rarest and most precious stones in the world, but despite that, they still come in many different colors! While blues hues are known to be the most common color for Sapphires, you can also find some that come in greens, violets, yellows, oranges, and pinks. The various shades of their signature blue can also range from deep indigo to pale sky blue. It's hard to believe that despite these differences in color within a single stone type, it all still comes down to the same mineral structure: corundum. With Sapphire being September's birthstone, it makes for an absolutely stunning jewelry piece no matter what hue you choose - perfect for gifting or wearing yourself!


It's always mesmerizing to look at an emerald and its vivid green color. But did you know that their special hue is actually caused by the presence of chromium and vanadium in the mineral? These two elements combine to produce the bright and lush colors that we associate with these gemstones, making them unique and beautiful. Check out a jeweler like Kiera to find one in the right setting for you. If you want to find your own personal wonderland of emeralds, with jewelers offering some stunning pieces, you'll be spoilt for choice.


Opals are incredibly special gems that have mesmerized onlookers for centuries. It's no surprise, as the gemstone is known to feature a stunning array of bright and dazzling colors - all within the same stone! Opals can range from displaying just a few flashes of color or a vibrant mix spanning across the entire stone. Many attribute this amazing phenomenon to an "opalescence" effect, caused by light being diffracted through many layers in the internal formation of the opal stone. In any case, it’s pretty hard not to be dazzled with awe at the unique, multi-colored display of an opal!
