50 Shades of Grey: The Jewelry Edition

Every since 50 Shades of Grey hit shelves, I can’t get the color gray in jewelry off on my mind. It’s everywhere! Gray hues are steaming up collections in stone and metal variations that have many aching to see more. Cases in point: diamond slices, enamel, crystals, silk cord, pearls, pyrite, steel, and silver, just to name a few smoky options. Gray is a chameleon color with shades as diverse as those who wear it: the executive in the charcoal suit, the fashionista in the pair of this season’s metallic-toed shoes, and the carefree college student in fleece sweats. In the spirit of the book series, here’s a tease of 13 gray-colored jewelry designs worth getting worked up over.
