They add a burst of vibrance and a touch of elegance.

Gemstones have adorned jewelry since… well, forever (according to our friends at the International Gem Society). Why not add a little color to your world by investing in gemstones? Our collection of natural gemstone jewelry in all of your favorite hues is the key to your fall update.

Seeing (Ruby) Red

Ruby Red and Yellow Gold Fine Jewelry | RItani.com
This fall-inspired combination of red and gold has us dreaming of leaves changing colors and plaid scarves wrapped around our necks. While it’s tempting to fill your jewelry box with every gemstone color known to man, we recommend finding your signature gemstone color and purchasing a variety of pieces that can be worn together or separately. An easy way to add instant cool-girl style to your look is to stack several rings on as many fingers (or on the same finger) as you can stand. Add gemstone earrings to complete the look (bonus It-girl points if you wear mismatched studs).
