Pantone Treats Us to a First: Two Colors of the Year for 2016!

Posted by & filed under Aquamarine, Omi Privé, Padparadscha Sapphire.

Pantone always has surprises up their sleeves when it comes to color.  Each year the “Color Authority” invigorates our world by unveiling their one select color choice.  But for 2016 they’ve really surprised us by announcing two colors.  Welcome to the world Rose Quartz and Serenity!  Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute states “Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”  The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring collections are led by Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.  While a transcendent blue, Serenity, provides us with a naturally connected sense of space.

This “engaging combo” perfectly complements so many other colors which convey both lightness and intrigue.  Here are some color pairing examples:

 

Rose Quartz and Serenity are represented in a variety of stones, including sapphire, pink tourmaline, aquamarine, and padparadscha sapphire.  The Pantone Institute® 2016 Colors of the Year can also be represented in the metals you wear, like rose gold and platinum.

The possibilities are endless!

OMI PRIVÉ PHENOMENAL EVENT AT AARON FABER

Posted by & filed under Alexandrite, Events, Monaco Collection.

The concept of phenomenal jewelry goes beyond the incredible allure possessed by such high jewelry as the Wallis Simpson Bracelet or the Heart of the Ocean necklace.  Phenomenal jewelry, and more specifically, phenomenal gemstones, are those rare stones nature has seen fit to bless with the extraordinary gift to create unusual optical effects: moonstones, opals, pearls, star sapphires, alexandrite.  All have the uncanny ability to create a unique waltz between color and light — an interplay that translates into a seductive dance of rainbows; or a mischievous cat’s eye; or a curiosity as to the exact color of the stone.

On Tuesday, March 29, 2016, Aaron Faber Gallery, will open Phenomenal Jewelry for the gallery’s annual spring exhibition. The exhibit explores how 21 celebrated jewelry artists have embraced the unique waltz of color and light shown by phenomenal gemstones into an astonishing piece of jewelry artistry.

We are excited to present the latest Omi Privé designs including color changing alexandrite and opals during this unique event.

Tuesday March 29th – Saturday April 23rd
