To the delight of gemstone connoisseurs everywhere, emerald green has been named 2013 Color of the Year by Pantone’s style report. In time for the lush green explosion of spring – and St. Patrick’s Day – this new wave of jewel-toned chic is a bonanza for May-born fashionistas who can wear their color with pride!
Rich green colors, say the experts, are suggestive of wealth and propserity – just envision the brilliant, deep sparkle of royal jewels – and the abundance of nature. So go for the green! It’s a great time to showcase your emeralds. Renew their sparkle with a gentle spring cleaning (gentle is key here; emeralds can be delicate divas, as their royal look suggests).
Emeralds, and emerald green enamels, are a popular feature of Art Deco jewelry – a perfect fit for the in-style vintage look. Pair with yellow gold for an opulent look in the evening. Make an emerald statement piece pop by wearing it with a pale green blouse or dress.
