Purchasing a stylish gem or two can really help top off an outfit, especially if you’re after a subtle addition to complete a particular look or feel. Gems are both fashionable and affordable on the whole, making them a go-to option for many people, sometimes for themselves ahead of a big occasion or even as a present to a friend.
Gems are also said to bring a variety of different energies too, with popular options, like the Rose Quartz, bringing peace, forgiveness, empathy, and a range of other appealing things that people are desperate to feel in life. Even famous celebrities like Adele and Katie Perry endorse the benefits of adding gems to a fashionable look while also exploring the benefits of adding gemstones into a home setting, for instance.
Before we advance further into the gems worth adding to your jewellery collection, it’s worth differentiating between both a gem and a gemstone. Essentially, a gemstone is a stone that can be cut and polished for use in jewellery or other ornamental applications. Once the gemstone has been cut down to form smaller gems, similar to the ones featured in NetEnt’s Dazzle Me slot game, they are then sold on in a number of different forms, with one being jewellery. Before purchasing a gem, it’s also worth understanding what types of stones there are and what they bring to the table in terms of their powers and energy. Let’s look at five great options below.
A symbol of serenity, tranquility, and purity, Green Jade is also said to bring people good luck, friendship, peace and harmony. Also known as “The Stone of the Heart”, Green Jade is known for fighting off any negative energies that might have entered your life, while also helping people to enhance their creativity and reach any goals. An all-round positive stone, its beautiful green colour is a favoured option for many, especially in the form of a necklace.
A stunningly beautiful stone that is said to carry the power of the sun and terminates any negative energy that might be hindering your daily life, Citrine is also known as “The Light Maker”, which is entirely understandable given its striking colour that is capable of brightening up any look. Particularly popular with Geminis, Aries, Libras, and Leos, Citrine will not only make you look good but potentially feel good too.
Clear Quartz, also known as “The Master Healer”, is used for a wide variety of beneficial reasons that are associated with physical, mental and emotional health. A beautifully clear and translucent gem, Clear Quartz is suitable for any occasion and can work in harmony with most looks.

A stone that is associated with feeling calm and grounded, Hematite is particularly popular with people who are both Aries and Aquarius. As well as offering warmness and energetic vibes to your life, wearing a Hematite gem can help reduce stress and anxiety, while also helping to support blood circulation around the body. In terms of its look, its shiny design is perfect for a five-star meal out with friends or while attending a glitzy event.
Moonstone is associated with the promotion of happiness, success, inspiration, intuition, and good fortune. A popular choice for many, Moonstone will help you unlock the energy of the Moon that is deep within you, therefore allowing you to fight off any emotions of feeling stressed and agitated. A moonstone bracelet is an excellent option in terms of fashion choices, although in truth, it’s a stone that can be found in many different types of jewellery.
