Pure Elegance

White adds class and elegance to a design. It signifies purity and innocence. It goes with everything and when combined with other colors, it creates pastels. White opens up space in a design, which gives it depth and breadth. It is simple and can  play alone like a long strand of pearls. When you are looking for a comfortable design choice that will go with anything, make it predominately white.

White Opal

October babies prefer this fiery stone. Approximately 97 percent of these stones come from Australia, which makes it the national gemstone of Australia. This is also known  as the milk opal.

White Spinel

Most of the white spinel you see on the market is now synthetic. This stone naturally occurred in Sri Lanka, but those white stones are now lost.

White Star Sapphire

Found in white as well as blue, the white star sapphire is the birthstone of April. A single light source will send off these brilliant rays of light.

White Star Sapphire

In addition to these lovely gemstones, you will also find these white components in jewelry: pearls, chalcedony, quartz, jasper, howlite, aventurine and even bone.
