Diamonds may be a girl's best friend but of late, coloured gemstones are gaining popularity.
Two friends and I were at the jewellers the other day and there was this couple who were looking over some ruby jewelry and ruby rings for their forthcoming engagement. As the lady's birthday is in September, they were also shown some sapphire jewelry and sapphire rings, sapphire being the birthstone for September. Since they were already there, they also asked to see other gemstone jewelry such as emerald jewelry and emerald rings
and others including amethyst, opal, pink sapphire, topaz, onyx, aquamarine, garnet, all finely-crafted into various pieces of beautiful jewelry.
