Appropriately as we prep to celebrate Memorial Day, we are closing out our Spring 2013 Jewelry Trend Color series with Poppy Red and Monaco Blue. These colors make two of our favorite color combinations of Pantone's Spring 2013 Color Palette. We're not sure if this classic color combo ever goes out of style, but it is definitely trending in fashion this year. Red and blue gemstones should be staples in your jewelry wardrobe: rubies, garnets, even chalcedony as in these Syna Jewels earrings match Poppy Red. Blue sapphire, touramaline and some deep tanzanites are a great match for the navy of Monaco Blue.
What's fun about Pantone's Spring 2013 Color Palette is that it gives women a blueprint for how to mix classic colors with new, creating inventive, fashion-forward looks. To play with the classic red, white and blue combination in fashion, pair patriotic outfits with a light blue (Dusk Blue), purple (African Violet), green (Emerald, Tender Shoots, Mint) or orange (Nectarine). Adding these colors through your jewelry accessories is a simple way to keep your fashion current without having to update your entire wardrobe.
