Growing up, my favorite jewelry was typically edible: chunky Ring Pops — both admirable on a finger and convenient for an on-the-go sugar fix — and chalky candy necklaces that just begged to be chewed. These days, my taste has become a little more highbrow, and my fellow editors share my love for jewelry and gemstones (though I still enjoy a good Ring Pop). In fact, we each have a favorite that guides our fanciful Etsy searches, be it opal, chalcedony or turquoise. Inspired by our beloved gems and their various colorways, we’ve each curated a collection of jewelry and other fascinating products that satiate our need for gleam. What’s your favorite gem?
