7 Gemstones to Gift a Loved One This Christmas

| 4 min read

One of the traditional concepts of Christmas is the act of giving, whether it’s giving and receiving gifts from friends and family or offering to help those in need.

Whoever you decide to give a gift to this Christmas, you can’t go wrong with a natural, loose gemstone. They're extremely collectable, they’re undeniably beautiful and can be incredibly personal to the person receiving it.

There are so many gemstones out there that it can be difficult to choose where to start. So, we’re recommending seven gemstones that we believe would make the perfect Christmas gift for someone you love.



As the world’s most precious gemstone, you can’t go wrong with giving someone a Diamond for Christmas. It's the strongest gemstone in the world, too, meaning it will last a lifetime and is suitable for everyday wear if the recipient chooses to have the stone set into jewellery.




Tanzanite is one of the birthstones for December, and arguably needs no introduction. Found exclusively at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzanite and its violet-blue hue have captured the hearts of gem collectors worldwide since its discovery in 1967, and is one of the most desirable gemstones on the market today.




Another birthstone for December, Turquoise makes a wonderful Christmas gift for either yourself or a loved one. Not only does it form in the most beautiful blue colour, but blue is also one of the colours most often associated with Christmas, alongside red, green and gold.

So, for a gemstone gift that also embodies the festive season, Turquoise is one we would highly recommend.




Regarding festive colours, Citrine is another stone that we believe makes thoughtful perfect Christmas gift. Citrine is a stone that emulates the golden glow of the sun, and as a result it is often thought to be a warm and energising gemstone. Plus, adding the shine of Citrine to someone's collection offers you the chance to bring some brightness into their home for the dark, winter months.



Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is said to be a stone of unconditional love – so what better gemstone to gift a loved one this Christmas?

Rose Quartz has an inviting pink hue that makes it a sought-after stone among collectors, and the stone has been used in jewellery and ornaments since ancient times. It's a gem that’s never lost its popularity, and one that has a place in everyone’s gemstone collection.




The vibrant purple of Amethyst is something to be marvelled, and is what makes this stone so recognisable to collectors and enthusiasts worldwide. Amethyst is also the birthstone for February, so it would make the perfect gift for a February baby.

As for metaphysical properties, Amethyst is said to bring abundance; so, if you know someone who may be looking to manifest good fortune in the upcoming year, Amethyst may be an ideal gift to give them.




The vivid green of an Emerald is nothing if not a festive colour, so why not gift your loved one something to emulate the season of giving?

Emeralds are one of the most desirable gemstones on the planet. It appears in different shades of green depending on where in the world it comes from, and each stone is just as mesmerising as the last. Our Emeralds hail from Zambia to Colombia, meaning there truly is an Emerald for everyone.


Gemstones are precious, beautiful and effortlessly collectable. They make a great gift for any occasion, and can be gifted as a stocking filler or a family heirloom.
