Styles and colours for Spring/Summer 2013
So Pantone have announced their colour of the year, Emerald 17-5641.
I love this colour, it’s rich, lively and elegant and looks great alongside silver and gold. Emerald green enhances your sense of well-being, balance and harmony and is revitalising and uplifting.
Emerald is of course the birth stone for May but you can get that beautiful emerald green colour in other gemstones too, for instance Malachite.
When you look at the pallet there is Monaco Blue as well and who ever said blue and green should never be seen clearly never looked to nature. You only have to look at peacocks to see that it does work.
If you’re getting married this year, then any of these colours are great to use as accent colours for bridesmaids, bouquets and venue decorations.
Key styles for 2013 are going to be geometric shapes, big Pearls, natural and tribal, tassle and pom poms.
With jewellery, its all about making a statement so go big and bold. Over the top earrings, supersized chokers, long beaded necklaces, colossal cuffs and clustered Pearl necklaces as well as Rose Gold.
I’m going to working on some pieces incorporating these colours so check back in from time to time to find pieces that will not just be on trend for this season but can become timeless treasured pieces too.
