It is a shame that we only have one color of the year, chosen by Pantone–in a world full of diversity and endless possibilities, surely one would think at least maybe a top five?! Whether it is Marsala or Radiant Orchid, or whatever fancy title given to a hue, I’m declaring BOLD COLORS the trend for Spring/Summer 2015! This can be captured by some brilliant gemstones in all shades of juicy colors–citrus yellow citrine, icy blue topaz, mossy green emerald, or royal purple amethyst. The best part about these vibrant colors is that, in my opinion, they pair best with yellow gold. Colored gemstones and yellow gold go gloriously together–a white metal just isn’t the same! Vivid colors for spring and summer is just what we need after a long, cold winter. While photographing some of my brightest gem set rings in yellow gold that I could find, I was instantly ready for sunshine and warmer temperatures…maybe even a beach!
