Shop These 10 Bridesmaids Dresses for a Wedding with a Gemstone Color Scheme 

As its name suggests, a gemstone color scheme draws inspiration from the colors found in various precious stones and jewels. When faced with this palette for an upcoming wedding, you can simplify your color search to three main families: green, blue, and red. Specifically, look into each color’s deepest, richest shades, such as burgundy, emerald, and a brilliant azure. 

While it might be a little tricky to nail the exact shade you’re looking for, know that choosing the right fabric can also set you in the right direction. To fully evoke the gemstone motif, select textiles that incorporate sheen and accentuate contours, such as satin, silk, velvet, and the like.

10 Gemstone-Colored Bridesmaid Dresses to Shop: 

1. Velvet Berry Dress with Black Flower Vines 

Burgundy is such a gorgeous hue to wear to formal events—it pairs beautifully with both deep and fair skin tones, and exudes regal femininity and sultry glamor. This dress comes in smooth velvet and features a thick black floral print, altogether evoking a glass of red wine. The weight of the column gown is balanced out by barely-there spaghetti straps, which gives the ensemble an effortless, slinky look.

2. One-Shoulder Dress with a Mid-Length Puff Sleeve and Sash Detail  

Show a fair amount of skin with this balanced dress, which boasts the subtlest high-low cut, an asymmetrical neckline, and a chic mid-length puff sleeve. Balancing out the lone sleeve is a sash detail, which hangs on the left side of the dress. Inspired by classical tunics and draped dresses, this dress is a tried-and-true yet flattering style.

3. Square Neck A-Line Gown 

You can never go wrong with a floor-grazing a-line gown. With its non-constrictive yet formal silhouette, you’ll enjoy the laid-back approach without ever feeling underdressed. To contrast the full skirt, a wide square neckline is present to provide some garment intrigue. So chic!

4. Soft Sweetheart Neckline Gown with a Front Slit 

This gown does feature a front slit, but it forgoes spaghetti straps for thicker bands, and has a more modest neckline that sits higher on the chest. With a standard floor length, its hem still allows ease of movement through all kinds of venues.

5. Off-Shoulder Cowl Neck Satin Gown 

Slits are clearly all the rage for bridesmaid gowns, and we’re not complaining—they often give balance to a dress, especially in the case of heavier fabrics that need a little weight distribution. That said, this pretty dress enjoys the ever-flattering off-shoulder neckline, enhanced with a bit of cowl draping around the neck. The high waist is nicely paired with a high slit skirt, which spills into a classy floor-length.

6. Velvet V-Neckline Gown with Ruching Detail 

An update on the classic v-neck gown, this frock has a slight vertical ruching detail, which creases the velvet and adds chic dimension. Like most gowns, it features a universally flattering high waist, and a straightforward skirt that’ll be right at home in a black-tie affair.

Get event-ready in a bold velvet dress that won’t be out of place on a red carpet! Complete with draped off-shoulder straps and a statement-making notched bodice, this gown is stylishly contemporary without compromising on the classic highlights of a formal gown.

8. Ribbon Strap Dress with Ruffle Hem 

Gemstone color schemes can definitely be worn with more playful styles. If a column gown is not for you, experiment with flouncy silhouettes and various hems, such as tiers and high-low styles. This offering comes in a shiny organdy fabric, which is a stiffer cotton, and is accented with adorable ribbon straps.
