Spring Into Color With Sapphires

Spring 2009 is all about color – Palace Blue, Lavender, Super-Lemon are some of the colors that experts say are ‘must-haves’ for serious fashionistas in the coming year and colored sapphires are the perfect jewelry complement.

Created Pink Sapphire Ring

To every thing there is a season. And to every fashion hound, there is the Pantone Color Report – the authority on what hues are hot each season. These are the folks who tell us “orange is the new black” or “fuschia is so fall 1995”. Seem a little nutty? There is method to their madness.

Pantone Fashion Color Report

Each season, Pantone surveys the designers of New York Fashion Week to collect feedback on prominent colors used, their color inspiration and color philosophy. The results? Fall 2008 is all about Blue Iris, Royal Lilac and Shady Glade, and Spring 2009 will feature Palace Blue, Lavender and Super Lemon.

Super Lemon? Got it.

But how do we bedazzle our studied wardrobes with jewelry the Pantone people would be proud of? Think Created Sapphires. Sapphires are not just blue; they come in a rainbow of colors. Maybe not Super Lemon or Salmon Rose – but certainly yellow, pink, purple – even green.

Created Sapphires have the same physical and chemical properties as the natural gem with the bonus of being nearly flawless. No joke. They are genuine sapphire stones just created in a lab rather then being mined from the earth – saving you thousands of dollars you can now spend on that Super Lemon halter dress.
