Ocean Hues

Blues and greens throw a beach party


Summertime, and the living is easy ... while the colors of the sea heat up your sales. Blues and greens are fashionable this summer.

White metals surrounding blue and green gems act like a cool breeze to counteract summer’s swelter, especially with a sprinkling of accent diamonds. Yellow gold adds visual contrast, and looks a bit like a warm ocean beach lapped by refreshing waves.
