Stars rock gemstone jewelry--precious and semiprecious--anywhere from the red carpet and awards shows to TV appearances and movie premieres. While some celebrities go for bright or sparkly stones like fire opal, citrine and aquamarine, others are drawn to the darker hues of onyx and lapis.
Here is a hot pick of gemstone jewelry seen on celebrities since the start of 2012.
