The Greening of American Jewelry

Seasons of cool and remote sky-blues have given rise to a hunger for the warmth of grounded greens. Following the lead of fashion, which this year embraced a warmer palette of colors favoring greens and other earth tones, fine jewelry is showing a penchant for greens of all shades, shapes, and price points. From the traditional emerald to the fun peridot, all shades of green gems look fresh this year. Moving away from convention, green stones are increasingly seen in white gold settings and—in semiprecious—as an accent to Tahitian pearls and their frequent greenish undertones.

Brightly hued tsavorites are a new favorite for designers, who are using the green pop as an accent with stones such as brown and black diamonds.
