This 23.03ct oval Lapis Lazuli sits on a setting of 14 ct yellow gold, diamond and Mother of Pearl. The iridescent qualities of Mother of Pearl is the perfect partner for this particular Lapis Lazuli which is flecked with subtle white specks. The delicate placement of the diamond and the intricate design work of the gold setting creates a brilliant contrast between the bold white and blue of the Lapis and pearl.
Silver, gold, blue, green, stripes, circles and squares - this piece has it all. More precisely, this David Webb ring is made up of a 4.64ct Cabochon cut emerald set in platinum with round brilliant diamonds, 18ct yellow gold all finished off with a royal blue enamel. Made circa 1970s, it is truly incredible how contemporary this piece feels.
With its thick black Jasper setting and yellow gold accents this striking ring evokes the chunky-qualities of tribal jewellery in stark contrast to the elegant and precise gold pattern influenced by Art Deco design. The stone in this piece is a 52.17ct oval bezel set Lapis Lazuli. With both the dark and light tones in this stone, it is the perfect piece to take from winter into spring.
Sometimes the stone simply says it all. Emerald cut aquamarines and sapphires, exquisitely designed necklaces and cocktail rings, these designs centre around one thing and one thing only - a big blue rock!
The tapered design of this stunning Swiss Blue Topaz and 14ct yellow gold necklace needs nothing more. Set on a cream, navy or black top, the two colours in this piece will sing.
Rhodolite stones and 14k white gold have been perfectly matched with this flawless 7.54ct oval Cabochon Turquoise. Such a light-coloured stone is perfect on a white gold setting as it doesn't distract from its impact of colour.
Blue is unmistakably versatile. It can be worn in summer - think sky blue and turquoise shades - to navy and midnight tones in winter. Such a cool coluor can be perfectly paired with so many other fiery colours such as pink, orange, red and yellow.
If you're wearing a brooch or a choker, you're making a serious style statement. This blue topaz, ruby and diamond 14ct yellow and white gold brooch is in the perfect colours for this floral design.
There's so much colour and design details in this pendant necklace, where to start? A citrine 18ct yellow gold Renaissance Revival pendant sits on three strands of aquamarine beads which have a total weight of 6.95cts. Here, the necklace has been styled with a Chanel-esque jacket with a circa 1980s feel, but it would go just as perfectly with a contemporary structured blouse in one bold colour.
