Gemstones for Winter - choosing the right gemstone for each season

Winter Gemstones
Gemstones for the Winter Season

Our series of seasonal gemstones comes to an end with Winter.

We don’t really get a winter here in Thailand but some of us remember the days getting short, the first flurries of snow, the ponds in the park freezing over and the arrival of Christmas lights.

There is no shortage of activities in the winter months whether they are festive gatherings, trips to the ski fields or romantic log cabins in the forest but what gemstones should we wear in the winter season?

The team here at GemSelect has got together to come up with the perfect gemstones to get you through the long cold months and the first on our list should come as no surprise.


Diamonds are not sometimes called ice just because of their crystal clear appearance, they also conduct heat exceptionally well so if you hold or touch a nice big diamond it will feel icy cold! There is no better gemstone to reflect the winter months.

White or clear quartz captures the imagination as an ideal gemstone for the winter months, as a piece of jewelry resembling ice cut from a frozen stream.

Topaz is a historic and much loved gemstone which comes in variety of colors but two make it a perfect winter crystal. The clear white topaz has a lovely sparkle and can be made into all types of jewelry while the brilliant blue topaz conjures up images of wintry scenes.

This gemstone not only looks like a winter sky at night – clear deep blue with a sprinkling of stars – but is a very protective stone which boosts the immune system which is especially vulnerable in winter.
