10 Popular Gemstones Used in Silver Gemstone Jewellery

Silver gemstone jewellery is popular for many reasons. The natural sparkle of the silver compliments the bright colours of the gemstones, allowing them to glow and stand out. In this article, we will tell you more about some of the most popular gemstones used in silver jewellery. If you are not sure which gemstones would best suit you, consider which colours you are drawn to, the properties of the gemstones and which shades and tones are in your wardrobe.


Colour: Deep red. However, some garnets can also have a violet tint.

Properties: Garnets range from opaque to translucent. They tend to be brittle and are often associated with creativity and strength.


Colour: Light green

Properties: Known for their vitreous lustre, peridots are some of the most popular stones found in silver gemstone jewellery. The light green looks amazing against the silver and these stones are also thought to improve sleep and overall health.


Colour: Golden yellow

Properties: Many people believe that citrine is a lucky stone that can help bring good fortune into your life. The gold colour is derived from iron impurities in the stone.

Lapis Lazuli

Colour: Deep blue 

Properties: Lapis lazuli was held in high esteem by ancient civilisations, who associated the deep blue colour with the heavens. This stone is thought to have motivating properties that can help you reach your goals.


Colour: Purple and violet

Properties: Amethyst is known for being pleochroic, which means that you will see different colours when viewing the stone from different angles. The gemstone is also a great choice for those seeking healing and inner peace.

Rose Quartz

Colour: Light pink

Properties: Enjoy a sense of calm and relaxation when you wear rose quartz jewellery. Quartz is composed of silicon and oxygen. In its pure state, it is colourless but certain impurities cause the pink colour.
