 Dangle Earrings Are In!

Earrings set a mood, finish a look and express the wearer's individuality. When it comes to putting together a wardrobe, earrings are like shoes, handbags and other essential accessories - you simply can't have enough of them.


Based on recent fashion and awards shows, the buzz on earrings is that longer, more dramatic styles are in! This includes larger hoops and three-stone diamond earrings. The larger hoops are often seen with diamond accents or multiple charms. Also in vogue are dangles and drops (especially those with interesting textures and finishes, and studded with diamond pav or splashes of gemstone color). Feminine, swingy, even shoulder sweeping designs are hot, particularly those in Art Deco and other vintage styles. In short, diamonds, color and old-school glitz and glamour are back.


In terms of metal, more people are turning to the warmth of yellow gold. What's more, fashion trendsetters have been gravitating toward orange-yellow stones such as coral, carnelian, mandarin garnet, fire opal, jasper, topaz, amber and citrine. Separately, turquoise also is red hot right now.

The name aquamarine was derived by the Romans, "aqua" meaning water and "mare" meaning sea, because it looked like sea water. They were considered sacred to Neptune, god of the sea. This association with and safe voyages as well as protection against perils and monsters of the sea. Its first documented use was by the Greeks between 480-300 BC. They wore aquamarine amulets engraved with the god Poseidon on a chariot.  


Aquamarines vary in color from deep blue to blue-green of different intensities, caused by traces of iron. Naturally occurring deep blue stones are the most prized because they are rare and expensive.
