Britt’s Pick: Dancing in the Rain Aquamarine by Nanis Italian Jewels



I find aquamarine to be one of the most versatile stones there is. For one thing, blue is a major crowd-pleaser, and the fact that it’s a primary color means it can match pretty favorably with anything. This can be true for any shade of blue, but aquamarine in particular is especially agreeable.

Here, in the Dancing in the Rain collection from Nanis Italian Jewels, the gemstone takes on a spring- or perhaps even summer-like aura. The brand’s website describes it this way:

“Imagine yourself surrounded by freshly laundered sheets, drying under open blue skies, or walking through the first rainstorm of the season and it slowly hits you—that fresh, earthy smell…”

Paints a pretty picture, doesn’t it? And with those words, you really can imagine such a scene inspiring this collection, the perfect shade of blue to represent it.

But I think, for prolonging purposes, that the refreshing aquamarine used here could represent our colder seasons, too. It’s the season’s first frost that kisses fall’s multicolor leaves, the melodic wind that dances with the sparkling flakes of winter’s first snow.

Simply put: You don’t wear this collection solely in the spring and summer months—you wear it all year long. And with its warm, textured gold and sparkling line of diamonds that sits like a row of spotlights on each piece, you’d most certainly want to wear these pieces all the time. Either in suite-like fashion (composed of those pictured here, and Nanis also offers a ring and bracelet, as well as varied necklace and earring styles) or separately. I’d like to see this necklace pop against a little black dress; the earrings would be lovely paired with tiny gold studs, grouped in a line up someone’s ear.
