JORDAN ALMOND COLORED PASTELS: FROM WINTER COATS TO TAHITIAN PEARLS

 

What is typically a dominant trend on the runways for Spring has become a hot trend for Winter – Pastels. Beautiful Jordan Almond colored pastels are everywhere. Dive into the trend with a full length winter coat in cotton candy pink from Jonathan Saunders or in blush from Zara. You can always take a more restrained approach by investing in pastel colored accessories that can be worn all year round.

It’s that time of year again! Soft iridescent shades reminiscent of pink pearls and warm neutrals in rose gold tones are starting to appear. Pink, blush and nudes are a big part of Spring’s fashion landscape for 2013. Louis Vuitton has added two new pinks to its handbag collection: Indian Rose, a candy-colored pink and Rose Velours, a pale pink-beige.

 

 

Spring Trends 2013

 

Tom Ford and Valentino both included shades of blush and beige in their spring collections. And even Pantone has jumped in declaring “Linen,” (a color that falls somewhere between buff and blush) one of the top 10 colors for the Season.

 

Our favorites in this lovely group of neutrals are: blush and rose gold. Jessica Chastain recently demonstrated the beauty of the color when she wore a Swarovksi beaded, rose gold stunner by Armani Privé to the Oscars last week.

 

Of course no look is truly complete without a few pieces of jewelry. The jewels that are part our Spun Sugar collection are not only one-of-a-kind, but also pair well with the blush, buff, and caramel colors that are part of this Spring Trend. The inspiration for this collection came from gems and precious metals that remind of us of the colors of spun sugar: pale cotton-candy pink, the warm rose-yellow gold of spun sugar and the sparkling white of granulated sugar.

 

Here are a few sweet treats from this collection:

Edwardian Rose Gold, Twist Link, Albert Watch Chain Necklace

 

This Albert watch chain has a feminine oval link, but is still solid enough to be worn with larger pendants. The reason that so many covet antique rose gold, is the patina and color that develops over the years which is difficult to reproduce in a modern piece.

Modern: 18kt White Gold Danglers with Baroque Pearls Topped with Diamonds

 

These two large baroque pearls shimmer in shades of silvery white and the palest of pinks. They are topped of by rose cut diamonds in a shade somewhere between cognac and rose. They hang from elongated, tear-drop shaped hoops of 18 kt white gold.
