Photo Find: Using Ombre to Incorporate Colored Stones Without Going Matchy-Matchy

Carrie Underwood shows us how to mix colored gemstones and diamonds in this gorgeous look published on People.com. Wearing a purple satin gown, she accessorizes it with a pair of diamond bracelets and drop earrings that have an ombre effect going from clear to deep purple with progressively larger stones. 

    

 

The ombre earrings are especially gorgeous on Ms. Underwood because of her coloring, which is high-contrast from her blonde hair to her dark eyes. The color of her gown is stunning. The length of the earrings and the round drop at the end of the earrings are reminiscent of the length and the little round tip of her nose. The earrings hit at about the midpoint of her long neck, and have a playful sense of movement. The effect: young, vibrant, and perfectly beautiful!
