Yes to Green Light
A Gem Visions Trend for Spring / Summer 2019
Lorde wasn’t just singing about overcoming heartbreak with her bold breakup anthem Green Light — she was also predicting a trend for jewelry for Spring/Summer 2019. Millennials have not only embraced Green Light as an anthem; they’ve embraced going green in their everyday lives, and their concern for the environment and the planet is now shaping color trends. This fashion for green, from deep intense emeralds to fresh, rain-washed shades was further solidified when Rihanna, another millennial icon, announced a collaboration with Chopard using stones in jungle green, symbolic of the lush gardens of her home country of Barbados.
Vibrant green gemstones – ranging from the precious emerald, which has seen a surge in popularity recently, to peridots, garnets and tourmalines – look great combined with rainforest vine-inspired organic silhouettes, or in exotic flower and tropical leaves designs. Looking for an even more elegant look? Pair them with opals and pearls. Contrasting these verdant tones with colorful base metals or stones in other saturated colors also makes them look extra fresh.
The Swarovski Gemstones portfolio, which includes Swarovski Genuine Topaz in the strong Rainforest shade; Swarovski Zirconia in refreshing Fancy Light Green; the emerald-like Swarovski Zirconia Fancy Green; and the pure Swarovski Zirconia Green are all made for leaf or flower settings. All these colors are created using the patented TCF™ process, which enhances the stones with a permanent hard-ceramic layer that protects them during a wide range of setting and casting processes.
And there’s a new star in town, set to draw some green-eyed looks. While Miranda Priestly may scoff that florals for spring aren’t groundbreaking, the zesty new Swarovski Zirconia Spring Green color will bring a millennial modern freshness to any design.
