9 Purple Jewels: The Color of Every Season



Purple is one of those chameleonic colors that can take on almost any season and work well. Paired with black rhodium and greenish accent stones, it reads Halloween to me (very bewitching!). In its richest incarnation and with sparkling diamonds, it’s the hue of the holidays. It’s at its most springy when it appears as the 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, and when paired with a hot pink, it’s as juicy as a summery fruit punch. Here are some of my favorites, organized by season, though certainly not limited by season, as surely anyone would be obsessed with these enough to wear year-round (as they should).
