Fall is just around the corner which can only mean one thing, shopping the fall trends. This year, rules are being broken as the runways were sprinkled with black and navy pairings. This long forbidden matchup has been blown out of the water by fashionistas everywhere. This trend evokes a “dark romance” with different hues and textures making it perfect for date night wear. You can incorporate this trend into your wardrobe long before the weather turns cold by stocking up on some beautiful Gemvara pieces that are sure to make a statement long before your long sleeves and opaque tights.
A statement ring is an easy way to take an outfit to the next level and the Racetrack Ring by Gemvara is exactly does exactly that in these three outfits, taking the ring from work, to a casual weekend, and a wedding reception. This customized ring features a large green amethyst gem encircled with diamonds and set in palladium. The light green plays well with every color, especially pinks and other greens. Palladium is a little known precious metal but an excellent choice for settings since it is naturally white and will never tarnish as well as being a hypoallergenic metal.
Wear this ring to work to spice up a basic black dress. Add a coral blazer which is the perfect shade for summer, but will keep you warm in an overly air conditioned office. Throw your keys into a chic green clutch that will bring out the green amethyst in the Racetrack Ring for extra sparkle. Break up the all black dress by adding a simple long chain necklace or thing belt to accentuate the thinnest part of your waist.
For a lazy weekend day running errands and window shopping, try pairing a light and flowing tank top with edgy leather shorts. You’ll be able to walk miles in a pair of comfortable oxfords, we like the cut-outs in these to keep you cool. A pair of oversize shades is always the best substitute for wearing makeup and with the Racetrack Ring as a statement; you won’t need any other jewelry for a fuss free yet stylish day!
Summer is wedding season, meaning dancing the night away. Stay cool with a lightweight dress in a pastel hue. This one has awesome draping and large arm holes to keep the air flowing. Play up the earth tones in a pair of wooden-sole wedges (much more comfortable then stilettos) and a warm chocolate brown clutch. Keep your makeup simple so it doesn’t melt off during the day. This NARS multiple is small enough to throw in your bag for a quick reapply later in the evening. The Racetrack Ring is all you need to polish off this look and you are ready to go!

Celebrate 4th of July in style with patriotic pieces from Gemvara and Americana garb. Jean shorts are a summertime staple and look effortless with the cuffs rolled. To make legs appear thinner and longer, shorts should hit mid-thigh where the leg slims. An American flag shirt is the perfect statement for the 4th of July, but be sure to keep the shape simple to avoid overwhelming the entire look. Flats and sandals are the easiest to maneuver through barbeques and backyard games of croquet. Avoid stiletto heels where you will sink into the grass. A small cross body bag will hold the essentials without being cumbersome. Red nails are always classic and help add a special patriotic touch for this holiday. however, if you’re feeling really adventurous, try a red/white/blue nail design.
Now for your Accessories:
The Full Heart Pendant is a simple piece that is elegantly understated but perfect for this color-coordinated holiday. With a 16 or 18 inch chain it dangles at the perfect length to elongate the neck and show off the bright top.
The simple Tri Gem Culvert Ring is a remarkably constructed piece is perfect for layering rings and is simple enough to wear year-round. It is also perfect for signifying the three birthstones for September, April, and July babies.
Packing a little more sparkly punch, the Sheltering Sky Ring hosts a large center gemstone with two smaller accent gems. Playing up the bold statement shirt this wide-banded ring is spectacular alone but matches nicely when paired with the Tri Gem Culvert above.

Whatever your plans, Gemvara wishes you a safe, happy Independence Day full of barbecues, parades, and surrounded with friends and family.
Have a Happy 4th of July!
Whether it be a garden theme, beach wedding or formal affair, the bridal gown is the most important dress at a wedding so we put a lot of thought into our picks. This lacy gown with scalloping detail from Ann Taylor seemed like an ideal choice for a garden party, while the strapless, lightweight chiffon dress is perfect for a beachy destination. We also loved the jeweled details on the Aidan Mattox halter dress for a formal wedding because let’s face it, we love jewels.
Second to the importance of the gown is the jewelry. We love the idea of wearing blue dangling drops (they can be your something blue!) to add some color to an all white ensemble. Simple diamond studs always look classy and a cute pendant is a nice touch for a casual wedding.
Which look is your favorite?
If you haven’t heard yet, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are tying the knot after dating on and off for three years. Girls everywhere, including here at Gemvara, are distraught at the news of Hemsworth becoming officially off the market, despite our adoration of Cyrus. But the juiciest details of this love story is, of course, the ring. Hemsworth and jeweler Neil Lane worked together to create the antique 3.5 carat cushion cut diamond set in 18 carat yellow gold. The ring also has intricate detailing with carved diamond floral motifs in an art nouveau pattern.
Luckily for those of us who don’t have a high profile celebrity jeweler on speed dial (or the Hemsworth brothers for that matter), Gemvara has several options that resemble Cyrus’ dazzling ring.

Wedding season is upon us and I don’t know about you, but choosing the right outfit for the right setting can be quite a challenge. There’s the friend with her wedding on the beach, the one in a traditional church setting, the black tie affair, oh and you can’t forget about the garden party. Where does a girl begin? Here are a few suggestions:
For a beach wedding you have the most freedom with how you dress. You can go pretty casual, but I think wearing a maxi dress or a flowing, short number is your best bet. Keep the shoes summery with something like espadrilles or flat sandals. And of course, go bright with your jewels. Big gems are sure to glow under the shining sun. Try Gemvara’s Monsoon Earrings and make a stunning statement.
A happy medium between beach and cocktail attire, a garden wedding calls for a sweet patterned dress with fun accessories. Bright shoes and cute, floral studs complement this look perfectly.
The most formal of the three options, cocktail calls for a knee-length dress in a solid color or a small pattern. Don’t go too overboard with this dress. Heels are a must for a wedding of this kind and your jewelry should be elegant and sophisticated. I love the Amphora Earrings from Gemvara for this look.
