Colored Gemstones for Spring 2016

Fashion trends in clothing and jewelry revolve around Pantone's color forecast every season.

After taking a good look at the color forecast, I like to make my own predictions for gemstones that I believe would be good choices to use in jewelry this year.   

Here are a couple of charts showing this spring's fashion colors...

And here are your gemstone choices that compliment spring's color... 

Rose Quartz (color of the year) -  Rose Quartz, Pink Opal, Dyed Pink Chalcedony

Serenity (color of the year) - Natural Blue Chalcedony, Aquamarine, Sky Blue Topaz, Blue Lace Agate

Peach Echo - Peach Moonstone, Coral, Apricot Agate

Snorkel Blue - Sapphire, Lapis, Kyanite, London Blue Topaz, Dark Blue Chalcedony (dyed)

Buttercup - Lemon Quartz

Limpet Shell - Sky Blue Topaz, Aquamarine, Amazonite, Apatite, Turquoise, Ocean Blue Chalcedony (dyed)

Lilac Gray- Gray Moonstone

Fiesta - Carnelian, Red Jasper, Red onyx

Iced Coffee - Smokey Quartz, Labradorite

Hope this helps with some of your creative choices this year!
