Twilight Zone

These gems echo the warm glow of sunset

Capture the magical quality of the light as day turns to night with gemstones encompassing the colors of the sunset.

Warm orange or red gems paired with gold evoke the first colors seen as the sun dips in the West, while cooler pinks to purples accented by white metals are reminiscent of the last slivers of light as darkness falls.
