The fall season is just around the corner and we can expect cooler weather and shorter days. The lush green leaves on trees will begin to shift into shades of yellow, orange, and red shades. Gardens hues will change into fall flowers that thrive in cooler temperatures like the orange chrysanthemums and purple pansies. Worldwide color authority Pantone® recently released its choices for the fall color trend report.
The new fall Pantone colors are Russet Orange, Crocus Petal, Valiant Poppy, Ultra Violet, Ceylon Yellow, Martini Olive, Quetzal Green, Nebulas Blue, Limelight, and Red Pear. Check out these new fabulous top color picks for this next season.
It's the time of year when we turn our thoughts to the beginning of warmer weather. As the snow melts and new growth emerges, we start finding ourselves looking for the first buds and the beginning of flowers. Whether it's bulbs, shrubs, or bushes, the stand-out color we find ourselves searching for is pink.
The delicate pink of dogwood is soft and sweet. Representing that same softness and sweetness is our Romantic Pink Pearl Beaded Anklet. Delicate pink pearls with Swarovski crystals grace your ankle like petals from the new bloom of the pink dogwood.
Snowy-white pearls are back in fashion for this winter, according to Vogue. Chunky and funky strings layered with petite and pretty, over a sweater and showing under your favorite coat, puts you at the cutting edge this season. Chokers are back, too, with a goth/punk edge, silver-dipped or leather, or massive pieces that keep your chin up this winter.
Single, high-impact earrings, like a chandelier-style dangle, make everyone take a second look. Even better, wear two different earrings you love to light up your mood in the darker days of the year. You'll smile every time you look in the mirror.
Gone is fall, and gone too is the reticence about winter. December is full of holiday cheer, winter outings and cold weather sports. The air is crisp and clear, the chill invigorating to the soul.
Just as invigorating is this month's color: winter blue. Nothing sparks up life more than the chill of icy blues.
While perfect for a winter wedding's Something Blue, this Classic Sapphire Heart anklet is also just right for the entire season of winter, or for showing off your love of all things icy. As delicate as a newly fallen snowflake, the cream Charlotte seed beads glisten and complement the beautiful sapphires of your choosing (light, sapphire, or Montana), the sparkling Swarovski crystals, and the perfect snowdrop round pearls in white or cream.
What is the jewelry color of the month for August? Red.
Carnelian, the red variety of chalcedony, was the August birthstone for the ancient Romans and Hebrews, and also used by the modern Italians. Carnelian comes in many shades of red, from pale orange to crimson to reddish-brown. It represents passion.
When the hankering to buy some new handmade jewelry hits you, chances are your brain thinks more in terms of “earrings” or “necklace” than in terms of “violet” or “nectarine.” But choosing jewelry based on color families adds a dash of whimsy to your shopping list and injects a large dose of fashion into even the most monochrome of wardrobes.
When choosing colors for your jewelry, always remember Pantone. What began as a printing company in the 1950’s, Pantone now dictates what hues will be hot in the fashion and design industries in each upcoming season.
