Right now we’re all feeling very, very blue. And pink. And green. I still have not fallen for Pantone’s Radiant Orchid, so purple, in my opinion, is in the eye of the beholder. Feel free to disagree. Bottom line, color is where it’s at. The cold weather is but a memory (mostly), and gone are the doldrum grays of winter, which were so charming when the season began. Now we’re ready to break out and embrace bright, warm shades. On days when we’re feeling our best and most vivid, a single color just won’t do. How to choose between those blues, greens, yellows, pinks? How about just pick them all?
For the bold, there are the loud looks composed of semiprecious gemstones and the deeply hued fancy sapphires that evoke a saturated, candy-color vibe that make them look good enough to eat.
For the more demure, fancy colored diamonds and lightly hued sapphires are the way to go for a more subtle, not to mention luxurious, style. The lighter looks bode well for spring but will carry color through any season. Then there are the showstopping looks put together with a setting of the rainbow-kissed opal or fancy sapphires.
Lastly, one of my favorite multicolor looks is attributed to one gemstone in particular: the opal. The stone holds a rainbow all on its own and is made even more stunning when combined with other stones that work to bring out its fiery tones.
