12 Jewelry Trends for 2013: Emerald Jewelry in Celebration of Pantone’s Color of the Year

Each month from now until JCK Las Vegas 2013, subjects from the 12 Jewelry Trends for 2013 will be highlighted on my Style 360 blog—an editorial first look at new collections worldwide and expert market analysis on jewelry styles, launches, and trends—as well as on the On Your Market blog by my colleague Brittany Siminitz, manager of JCK Marketplace, that expansive online showroom of gorgeous merchandise sold within the JCK shows.

Green continues to be a hot color in fashion and in jewelry, and in 2013, the two meet in Pantone’s Color of the Year, Emerald Green. To whet appetites for the lush hue, here are 10 emerald jewels to admire.
