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...
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
Green Flash - Chrysoprase, Peridot, Prehnite, Emerald
Hope this helps with some of your creative choices this year!
