A World of Colorful Jewelry

By LeAnne Daniels

For summer style, jewelry with colored stones is a fun and casual way to add a little color to your summer wardrobe. A beautiful colored stone necklace will stand out against your crisp summer white outfit and always looks great with a tan. Jewelry designers have always used colored stones in their designs, but for summer, the pieces are less formal with brighter colors that look fresh and different. There are so many wonderful designs to choose from right now – some are set in stunning 18K gold and some are made into more affordable fashion jewelry. Beautiful colored gemstones come in every color of the rainbow.

Jewelry by Italian designer, Marco Bicego, has always been a favorite summer staple because of his feminine designs and unique use of colored stones. He uses lots of faceted multicolored stones like tourmalines, blue topaz, peridot and citrine mixed in with brushed 18K gold. His new designs this summer feature deep blue London blue topaz mixed with sky blue topaz. He also uses lots of pure blue turquoise or lapis mixed with brushed gold for spring and summer.

Clara Williams is another great designer whose main focus is lots of color – necklaces made from every colored stone you can imagine – peridot, lapis, morganite, turquoise, kyanite, adventurine and of course, pearls. All of her necklaces and pendants are magnetic and you can change out the pendants with the different necklaces. Her pendants are also primarily colored stones; some of which are smooth or carved pieces and some that are rough cut stones. This makes for a sophisticated and versatile way to wear colored stones which can be worn every day or dressed up for a night out.

I tend to wear a lot of neutrals, but I still want to add a pop of color in the summer so that is where a beautiful piece of jewelry made with colored stones can really stand out. A necklace with beautiful colors is a great way to change up an outfit or bring out the color in your eyes. If you tend to wear more bright colors, then sometimes some colorful earrings may be all the jewelry you need. Even our customers who wear Lilly Pulitzer all summer long still enjoy having a bit of color in their jewelry – there are lots of beautiful pink and green stones to choose from!

The great thing about jewelry made with colored stones is that it is not only unique and fun but that it comes in all price ranges. We have a new line in our store that is made by a young designer that is only 24 years old. Her gold and colored stone designs are beautiful, fun and youthful and also very affordable. Whether you want a one of a kind designer piece or just something fun for the summer, there is lots of beautiful jewelry with colored stones to choose from.
