Emerald Green - 2013 Pantone Color of the Year

It's the middle of August and the cool fall season seems so far away, but those of us who are in the fashion business have started thinking about our products for the fall and winter season for some time now, not to mention the Christmas season!

Emerald is the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year and we're going to be seeing a lot of it this fall. Just look through any of the fashion magazines or go on-line to your favorite retailer, and you'll begin to notice it in abundance. One of my favorite designers, CAbi, has added a number of emerald green items to their fall/winter collection. And as you can see from these images, this is a color that can be worn casually, professionally, and formally. There's something for everyone.

One of my newest collections are my Sterling Silver Birthstone Swarovski Bangles. Emerald is the birthstone for May:

Personalized Jewelry is all the rage right now!

Looking for the perfect gift? Personalized jewelry is an ideal gift for someone who may be a bit hard to shop for, especially if you don't know them well. Do you have a college graduate to shop for? Or a high school graduate?

Personalized jewelry is also great for birthday gifts. Take this combination below - a hand stamped initial on one bangle and a swarovski birthstone crystal on the other. This combination is only $33.00 in my shop -
Sterling Silver Birthstone Bangle
Sterling Silver Personalized Bangle

Necklaces are always a popular gift, and selecting a personalized initial necklace makes it so easy! Choosing jewelry for someone else is always difficult, but this necklace below would be appreciated by anyone. You can even have it created with the initials of their children or other loved ones. Get creative!
