Are you looking to switch up what necklace you wear on a daily basis? If your signature silver necklace is starting to look a little tarnished and tired, you should find something shinier that brings you joy. Or maybe the gold necklace you wear daily just doesn’t embody your style anymore. Consider gemstone necklaces. A little bit more earthy but still refined, gemstone necklaces often add an unexpected pop of color to your OOTD.
We rounded up the best gemstone necklaces to help you narrow the endless field. All of our picks are pendant necklaces. They’re all on the smaller side, so if you’re looking for a giant crystal to wear around your neck, you probably won’t find it below.
One of our options is a true classic. It can mesh with just about any outfit in your closet. If you or your friend are into astrology or love your birth month, you might want to consider showing off your birth month affiliation on your neck with a necklace. Our last option is a pint-sized statement-making opal necklace, which is otherworldly. Its lustrous and varied hues are unique and will make you a trend-setter.
