Green jewellery is the best way to go bold with colour and look effortlessly polished at the same time. There are so many beautiful green stones out there from peridot to chrysoprase and emeralds to malachite, prasiolite, jade and even green amethysts. The list goes on.

Green gemstones have always had strong meanings as such truth and joy. Napoleon Bonaparte gave his beloved Josephine a peridot to symbolise his undying love and admiration for her. Emeralds are the for May birthstones and Peridots for August Birthstones.

If you wear a lot of neutral colours using pops of colour in your jewellery to brighten up an outfit is a clever little trick and often these green stones can be spotted a mile away.

I've put together a selection of minimalist and bold pieces which I think will set off any outfit perfectly. I've included mostly green and gold pieces as I think the warmth the yellow gold colour bring to green makes it more exotic and bold.

Linear Cocktail Ring

The first piece in my edit is a green cocktail ring. I love these three very different linear gemstone rings.You will instantly have a favourite out of the three below, whether you like the opaque amazonite or the simulated emerald ring.

Statement Earrings 

Once you've graduated the school of statement rings you inevitably move on to statement earrings. With a similar power to lipstick statement earrings instantly make you look ready for the evening and you don't have to wear a necklace or much else jewellery wise. 


If these are a bit too big for your taste but you love the colour I'd opt for these studs from Missoma. I am on a personal mission to have all colours of these claw studs and I can't praise them enough. Unlike translucent stones Chryoprase will always give you the most vibrant colour no matter how big the stone so is perfect if you want a very small piece of jewellery but in a bold colour.

For those looking for something more pastel and pale these three green themed pieces are subtle and delicate. Pale green cord on a Daisy Heart Chakra Bracelet or Monica Vindaer aquamarine gemstone ring have much cooler tones that the pieces featured above.
