Fire and Ice

Town & Country's March issue features the two predominent themes of cool ice and warm fire in contemporary jewelry.

The icy white elegance of diamonds, white metal and blue gemstones is complemented by the emphasis on geometric shapes in both watches and jewelry. This theme is a continuing trend in many jewelry stores.

What's surprising and newer is the page the magazine devoted to warmer, more exotic themes, reflected in orange and green beads, yellow gold and the softer, rounder shapes seen in the jewelry and watch styles.

As you decide what to buy at summer shows, consider stocking more warmer shades. Clothing, home appliances, computers and cars have all taken the leap towards more color – shouldn't you?
