How to wear coloured gemstones in winter
20th Dec 2018
We’re well and truly into the winter months with winter solstice only a day away. By now you’ll be beginning to feel the chill and hopefully have your winter warmers out - big knit jumpers, cosy fur-lined boots, and that duffle coat you’ve been waiting to get out of the wardrobe. Let’s also not forget the festive parties that grace the winter months; think sparkly tops, elegant dresses and glitzy heels. But, whether you’re dressing up or down, every outfit needs accessories, especially ones with colour to brighten up the darker season. At Browns Family Jewellers, we’ve put together a guide on how to wear coloured gemstones this season.
