Yes please!

If you’re a sun seeker rather than a snow bunny, the short, dark days of winter can be challenging. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Brighten up your day and your spirits with something blue- the colour of tranquility and truth.

Sapphire, iolite and blue topaz pendant wrapped in a diamond ribbon

There is a vast and varied choice of blue stones including sapphire, blue topaz, aquamarine, iolite, chalcedony, lapis lazuli, turquoise and Paraiba tourmaline- to name but a few.

But it would be remiss not to mention the king of stones- diamonds. Blue diamonds are incredibly rare, and notoriously expensive. However, pictured below are some (very affordable) treated blue diamonds, which are the most captivating, magical teal colour- reminiscent of an iridescent peacock blue.

These will look spectacular set around a white diamond, and far more interesting than a conventional white diamond halo.

January will soon be behind us, but gorgeous blues are here to stay.
