Black by Popular Demand: Moody Hues are Hot

While the LBD of your jewelry box may be stud earrings, the color black is as much a necessity as styles themselves. Consider these points: When you want to add drama to an outfit, what color do you call upon? When you want to update a traditional look, what color helps up the edge factor? And when your champagne taste clamors for diamonds, but your beer budget puts high-end stones out of reach, black rocks are an ever-affordable alternative. Dark designs are available in myriad gemstones and metal options—the latter helping light stones pop and dark stones better blend.
