Fashion drives the jewelry world tendencies and this year, 2017 you should expect to see a lot of green in everything. It’s the color of revival and hope! “Greenery” has been chosen by Pantone as the color of the year and in jewelry there are plenty of gorgeous options for this powerful color! Think only about the emerald and the jewelers’ imagination can go to pretty interesting places.
The color of growth and fertility, green is naturally linked to hope, strength, and physical health. Vivid Green Tourmaline, ranging from pure leek-green to more complex shades touched with yellow, blue or brown, makes the most of green’s positive associations. Legend tells of Tourmaline’s power to attract friends and lovers, protect the wearer against bad decisions, and shield its owner from danger. Perhaps because green represents a balance between blue and yellow, Green Tourmaline is thought to promote balance for those who wear it. One of the more popular stones among male buyers, Green Tourmaline will also grace the most feminine jewelry designs.
Especially since green is commonly affiliated with eco-friendly products, we see green gems such as Green Tourmaline being used by designers and sought after by fashion-forward consumers. Its rich olive green hue provides a stunning year-round fashion accessory. Tourmaline is a gem often given to those born in October as well as those born under the sign of Capricorn. It is also the celebratory gem for the 8th wedding anniversary.
“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape…… Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
The choice of “greenery” surely suggests our desire to go back to where we belong: to the nature. Our everyday lives became so tumultuous, so busy, so far from real, pristine beauty and the green shades will surely bring something back from our “lost paradise”. Green has been always associated with life, spring, and fresh beauty, that’s why in the jewelry we are in for an amazing change. There are many colored gemstones that carry the green hues in them and will make a statement wherever you go. These are: peridot, chrome diopside, demantoid, green amethyst,tourmaline, etc.
What makes this color even more desirable is its affordability. You can be stylish and show off your knowledge about the fashion current tendencies and still keep your credit cards undamaged.
This year, find your passions, start a new adventure, and be bold by wearing statement “greenery” jewelry!
