The sun is starting to shine more over our beautiful country and we are counting down the days to June. This means just one thing: Summer is coming! Get rid of the warm winter clothes, it's time for the shirts and colorful summer dresses!

Summer is the best time to experiment with different and striking colors. After all, summer is all about a lively time, people take to the streets and life is bustling outside. This also applies to your jewelry! But which stones to choose? After all, every gemstone has different characteristics and different values. Don’t worry, we’ll help you on your way.

What are the 6 most suitable gemstones to wear in summer? 

  1. Aquamarine
  2. Citrine
  3. Rose Quartz
  4. Amazonite
  5. Ruby
  6. Peridot

There is no doubt about it, any qualified jeweler will highly recommend aquamarine. The name says it all: aquamarine has a beautiful light blue color that is the same as the water, ‘aqua’ in Latin. The light blue stone radiates a cooler aura that gives a sense of calm in the sun’s rays. Close your eyes and fly with your thoughts to the middle of the ocean.

Citrine, with its amber color, is the embodiment of the sun. Because of its warm aura, citrine makes you more cheerful, positive, and spontaneous. Just like that feeling when you are bathing under the sun.

Rose Quartz
Valentine’s Day and wedding season are not the only times of year to celebrate love. Summer is the perfect time to celebrate love and joy. Rose quartz helps with expressing love to your loved ones; your partner, friends, or a good amount of self-love.

Amazonite provides the same calm feeling as aquamarine, only the amazonite goes one step further. The blue-green stone brings your thoughts and emotions to a place of peace and serenity. This allows you to think more clearly and be aware of yourself and your surroundings. Feel the energy and oxygen flow through your body from the stone that gets its name from the Amazon, the ‘lungs of the earth’.

This gemstone is known worldwide for its deep red color. The ruby expresses feelings of passion, self-assurance, and excitement. The stone connects with your inner strength and encourages more energy and motivation for those summer days when you want to be more active. Also, the ruby is known as the birthstone for July.

The golden-green color of the peridot combines warm and cool tones, fluorescent loads and creates a linear lighting harmonious appearance. The color represents nature that is in full bloom during the summer and allows for a deep dive into the fresh green as the golden rays of the sun warm you. The peridot was also called “Gem of the Sun ” by the Egyptians, as the gem is always associated with light.
