A jewelry show as big as the Miami Beach show will teach you a few lessons. Looking back, I noticed three particular gemstones that kept catching my eye while looking through hundreds and hundreds of pieces of jewelry. I’ve named these gemstones the top three gemstones of 2013!!


  1. Opal
  2. Garnet (Almandite Garnet)
