Gemstones are available in every colour: from clear to black, with all the colours of the rainbow in between. Inspired by some of our favourite celebrities, and royal family members, we’ve put together a guide featuring some of our top picks from our Rainbow Collection. Here’s how you can wear enchanting gemstones; Aquamarine, Tourmaline, Morganite and Ametrine this spring season.

Aquamarine

With its sky blue colour, Aquamarine boasts truly spring-like tones, as well as being March’s birthstone. This dreamy pale blue stone is linked to new friendships, as well as affection and love, hope and health. With this gemstone, you can expect an increase in creativity, courage and overall happiness with its ability to combat negative energy.

Last year, Prince Harry gifted Meghan Markle with Princess Diana’s stunning Aquamarine ring, traditionally making its rightful place as her ‘something blue’. Her Cartier diamond stud earrings and bracelet were her ‘new’, and Queen Mary’s diamond Bandeau Tiara was her ‘something old’ and ‘something borrowed’. Her famous ‘something blue’ made a sentimental honour to Harry’s mother and was spotted on her hand at the reception of the wedding, and soon became a spring wedding trend.

New to our Rainbow Collection is the beautiful aquamarine and diamond ring, gorgeously crafted from 18ct white gold. The fabulous step cut aquamarine takes centre stage between two round brilliant sparkling diamonds. This is the ultimate sping-inspired gift to yourself for a touch of royal sophistication.

Aquamarine & Diamond Ring – £495

Tourmaline

Tourmaline can come in many beautiful colours including, blue, green, red, yellow, pink and more. Pink tourmaline specifically carries unconditional love and friendship, radiating the highest amount of love of all the tourmalines. It is a calming stone that dispels negative emotions, instils confidence and introduces wisdom and compassionate qualities – the perfect stone for a positive spring season.

Modern Family actress, Ariel Winter, attended the Annual Golden Globe Awards wearing a dazzling pair of earrings featuring pink tourmaline. Brumani diamond, aquamarine and ruby were also incorporated into these show-stopping earrings. These rightful red carpet earrings work magnificently with Ariel’s red dress, with the jewellery’s pinks and reds being picked out perfectly.

Our luscious pink tourmaline and diamond-stud earrings have been gloriously crafted with 18ct white gold. Each earring beautifully features an oval cut tourmaline, with two small brilliant cut dazzling diamonds above. The dazzling diamonds reflect flawlessly against the pink tourmaline, complimenting each other with utter grace.

Pink Tourmaline & Diamond Earrings – £495

Morganite

Like emerald and aquamarine, morganite is a form of beryl, often referred to as ‘pink beryl’. Given its charming pink hue, its association with love, romance and harmony doesn’t come as a surprise. Most importantly though, this glorious stone is said to promote independence in women. So if you long for a beautiful ring but have yet to find the right suitor, it’s time to treat yourself.

Many women would wish for Ryan Renolds to be their suitor, and the stunning Blake Lively is the lucky lady. Ryan proposed to Blake with a magnificent oval solitaire diamond ring with a distinctive and feminine light pink tint.

In comparison, a morganite is similar to Blake’s ring and has nearly as much sparkle as a diamond as well as a natural blush pink tone. This gorgeous morganite and diamond halo trilogy ring takes quite the spotlight in our new Rainbow Collection. Handcrafted from 18ct white gold and featuring three outstanding morganite gemstones, all surrounded by brilliant sparkling diamonds, this ring is simply mesmerising. If there’s ever a perfect way to treat yourself, it’s with this stunning ring that can be kept forever as a symbol of self-love and independence.

Morganite & Diamond Halo Trilogy Ring – £495

Ametrine

Ametrine is a naturally occurring variety of quartz, and it is a beautiful mixture of amethyst and citrine with stunning tones of purple, yellow and orange. The harmonious and balancing energies of Ametrine provide magical healing properties and help towards creativity, vitality, intuition and inner strength.

Selena Gomez is a fan of Ametrine and fashioned a show-stopping 18k yellow gold Ametrine ring while walking the Women of the Year red carpet.

Getting married is undeniably one of the most important events of your life, and the proposal that comes beforehand can be equally memorable. We take a look at some beautiful proposal stories from celebrities, and give tips on how you can achieve your own perfect proposal.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

In true celebrity fashion, Kim and Kanye had a true extravaganza of a wedding, but this started in a ballpark on Kim’s 33rd birthday. Kanye proposed to Kim while surrounded by her family and friends, with the words “Please Marry Me!” across the scoreboard. Of course, she said yes and was presented with a stunning 15-carat show-stopper of an engagement ring.

Eva Longoria and Jose Antonio

Eva was truly spoilt by Jose’s adventurous desert proposal in Dubai, and magnificent ruby engagement ring. This beautiful occasion was celebrated on an outdoor lounge, made especially for Eva from patterned cushions and Persian rugs surrounded by desert sand dunes for ultimate romance.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin

When George Clooney reportedly struggled to get Amal to sit still long enough for his proposal, eventually, he casually asked her to light a candle, and to her surprise in the matchbox sat the dazzling engagement ring. On the Ellen Degeneres Show, George said, “She pulls it out and she looks at it and she’s like, ‘It’s a ring’ – like as if somebody had left it there some other time!”

But it’s important to remember that when you propose, you don’t always need to pull out all the stops and make a grand gesture. It may be that doing something a little more low-key in the comfort of your own home suits you both better as a couple.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

With royal weddings comes the idea of fairytale engagements, but Prince Harry’s proposal style was charmingly casual. During their first appearance after their engagement, the pair revealed they were cooking dinner together when it happened. Out of excitement, Harry confirms, he couldn’t wait, so he popped the question before they sat down to eat, with 2017’s most iconic ring, a three stone sparkler!

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett

Will Smith proposed to Jada, his wife of now 21 years, in a very low-key but personal way. Just before going to sleep, Will said, “Hey, we might be real good married. Wassup? You wanna marry me?”, to which she replied yes! He did this unplanned with no ring, but the moment was still incredibly special to them as a couple. Will has stated that sometimes, “simplicity becomes the jewel”.

How to achieve the perfect proposal

A proposal is one of the most special moments in your life so it’s important to get every detail right, after all, it’ll be in your and your partner’s memories forever.

Choose the right location

The location of your proposal is imperative. This perfect location may be obvious to you: whether it’s a holiday destination already full of happy memories, or somewhere close to home where you spend time together most. Most importantly, it should be somewhere you know your partner will feel comfortable. So if your partner doesn’t like being the centre of attention, opt for a more private setting. On the other hand, if your fiance-to-be isn’t shy of big romantic gestures, then a cleverly planned proposal in their favourite restaurant or spot will make them feel special.

Always plan ahead

Like many occasions, planning ahead is important. If you’re planning the proposal in a restaurant or hotel, it worth letting them know your plans beforehand as they may even be able to help. If you’re planning a proposal on the beach during the sunset, it’s worth checking tide times and allowing yourself enough time before the sun sets.

Some decide to choose a special date to propose, as Kanye did for Kim by choosing her 33rd birthday. This could be the date you first met or another meaningful anniversary for added sentiment. It’s also important to work out a time where your partner will be most relaxed, which is why holiday proposals are so popular.

You should also plan what you choose to say during your proposal. These words often outshine everything else. However, it’s also important to remember that your speech doesn’t need to be too long, just a few heartfelt words have the power to melt your loved one.

Choosing the perfect engagement ring

Most importantly, when planning a proposal, it’s important to choose the right engagement ring. There are many things to think about, so get an idea of whether they would prefer a diamond or gemstone, a single stone (solitaire) or a halo setting, shape of the cut, metal colour, and, most importantly, the ring size.

If you’re a couple who admires a classic style, then a white gold diamond solitaire engagement ring is a popular choice. A yellow gold engagement ring may be more suitable for those who adore a vintage look, or perhaps rose gold for something with a romantic twist. Let’s not forget dazzling platinum, which is guaranteed to wow. Whether your partner dreams of an abundance of sparkling diamonds or a single coloured gemstone; at Browns, we have a stunning range of different cuts and carats, for every desired look and budget.

However you decide to ask the love of your life to marry you, with the engagement ring of their dreams and a well-thought-out plan, it’s guaranteed to be beautiful. Don’t forget, we’re here to help you choose the perfect engagement ring, so don’t hesitate to get in touch or pop into your nearest store.

A pendant can be a fun, eye-catching and beautiful accessory which has the ability to truly transform just about any outfit. Adding a pendant to your everyday or evening attire can brighten up your look, but if you’re unsure about how to style a pendant, we’ve put together a guide to show you how.

Keep it casual

Casual outfits are, by far, a strong choice for many, with a knitted jumper, t-shirt and jeans being a firm favourite. But remember, being casual doesn’t mean you can’t still look stylish; that’s the beauty of accessorising with jewellery. When you choose a pendant for a casual outfit, it’s important to keep colour and pattern in mind. If your usual style of choice is a checked flannel shirt, then you don’t want a pendant with a busy design.

For many, ‘casual’ means to ultimately be yourself, and that should be carried with pride. This charming silver pendant from the ChloBo collection represents those who are strong, independent and take control of their happiness to create a life that feels good. The perfect pendant for every casual look, with an abundance of positivity.

ChloBo Silver Pendant – £49

Stay smart

If your career involves having to dress a little smarter than usual, you may be a little more conscious of your attire and how to accessorise it. A pendant can make for a dignified addition to a sharp blazer or professional pencil dress, and help contribute to putting yourself forward in a positive way.

This elegant pendant can be worn with ease, matching many styles, while flattering every neckline. Boasting an eye-catching diamond and pink tourmaline gemstone, and crafted with 18ct white gold, you can have confidence that this will work wonderfully with your office attire.

Diamond & Pink Tourmaline Pendant – £750

Make a statement

Whatever you decide to wear, a statement pendant can instantly transform any outfit. You can choose to wear it during the day with a simple top or jumper, or you can dress it up with a gorgeous evening frock and elegant up-do. A pendant with such artistic flair is guaranteed to get compliments.

This stunningly intricate filigree pendant, crafted with 9ct white gold and brilliant cut diamonds, radiates irresistible beauty. With its timeless style, this preloved pendant can add glitz to an evening or glamour to a day to give you that extra hint of pizzazz that you truly deserve.  

Preloved Diamond Filigree Pendant – £995

Dress up

There are many occasions to dress up for; whether it’s a date night, wedding or trendy evening soiree, it’s a fabulous excuse to accessorise with a stunning pendant. This pendant isn’t likely to be something you wear every day, so it’ll feel extra thrilling to get it out of the jewellery box for the evening. This beautiful pendant, featuring a deep purple amethyst offset with pave set diamonds, is the ultimate show-stopper. Match this sparkling 9ct yellow gold pendant with an elegant black dress to really make it pop.

A pendant is a perfect accessory that can transform any outfit, so keep this in mind when planning for an occasion. Precious stones, diamonds and even pearls are popular choices for special occasions, especially evenings.

Victorians adorned a lot of gold, well-made and often beautifully engraved. This preloved French Victorian necklace, crafted from 18ct yellow gold, features elongated oval links exquisitely ornamented with delicate filigree detailing and accented with millegrain decoration.

This necklace looks fabulous when worn as a long necklace or wrapped around for a multilayered effect. This elegant design is wonderfully unique and radiates sophistication when worn with a simple high necked blouse during the day or classic lace dress in the evening.

Fancy French Victorian Necklace – £3,295

Eternally antique

Nothing says unique style like a staple piece that can be worn everywhere, such an elegant ring with a unique history and natural air of sophistication.  An antique ring will, not only, have fundamental vintage charm, but also high-quality craftsmanship and affordability.

This charming preloved ring, crafted with 18ct yellow gold and boasting three natural vibrant sapphires and two brilliant diamonds, is truly something special. This ring can be styled with a pair of jeans and a knit jumper during the day, or with an elegant dress in the evening. The vintage design can be set off strikingly when layered with other antique pieces or worn alone as an engagement or eternity ring. An antique engagement ring is a beautiful choice for a bride who’s looking for something a little different.
