Make a bright and sunny appearance with these one-of-a-kind gemstones featuring an orange twist
Tales of Topaz
Boasting of a golden-orange hue, the imperial topaz is believed to be one of the most valuable colours of this gemstone. Deemed as a symbol of friendship, its appealingly unique orange tint has made this gemstone a showstopper. Flattering on Indian skin tones, the bright golden-orange hue exhibited from the imperial topaz makes it ideal for the festive season.
TAKE NOTE: Opt for a pair of imperial topaz earrings and team them with an orange crop top and a black and gold lehenga skirt. Don’t forget to pull your hair back into a sleek bun to let your earrings claim the spotlight.
Songs of Sapphire
Perfect for the season of glitz and glam, sapphires are a treasured gemstone and exude opulence and style. Bearing a striking similarity to the pink sapphire, nothing will amp up your bling quotient quite like the orange sapphire. If your style aesthetic is centred on sophistication and poise, this gemstone will prove to be a timeless addition to your jewellery collection.
TAKE NOTE: Team sapphire-set yellow gold earrings with an embellished sari to make a dazzling statement.
When compared to the radiance of topaz, the pale yellow citrine provides more scope for everyday wear. The yellow-orange undertones of this gemstone are perfect for someone who isn’t keen on making a blinged out statement with over-the-top jewellery. Ideal for daytime functions or low-key intimate celebrations, a citrine pendant or ring can add some essential bling to a chic and minimalist ensemble.
TAKE NOTE: Stack a pair of citrine-encrusted bracelets or don a dainty citrine set pendant to match with an anarkali or salwar suit for a stylish ﬁnish.
One of the treasured navaratnas or nine gemstones, the hessonite garnet or gomedh exudes a deep orange-meets-terracotta hue. The warm colour of this gemstone is eye-catching and makes for a fascinating conversation starter.
TAKE NOTE: Invest in a statement making cocktail ring featuring this garnet as the central stone for a ravishing ﬁnish.
