What will your bling be this spring? Color is hot and tasty for spring 2007, mouthwatering hues that pop are in demand. Shedding the dowdy colors of winter, designers have chosen a palette of candy box colors of strawberry ice, sky blue, golden apricot, tarragon, and grape mist…soft tones full of flavor! Colorful gemstones of pastel colors are commanding the most attention this spring. Popular hues to look for in fine jewelry are citrus tones of lemon and lime citrine, green and golden beryl, pale lavender and green amethyst, additionally soft tints of pink quartz, morganite, aquamarine, labradorite, chalcedony, moonstone, apatite, and prehnite.
In its recent catalog, Neiman Marcus previews this season’s colors in its selection of “Statement Rings”, this year’s version of the cocktail ring.
In addition to the classic faceted and cabochon cuts, when choosing a piece of jewelry this season look for gemstone jewelry with rough crystals, tumbled, or unfaceted shapes to add zest to your wardrobe.
