When it comes to the latest jewelry trends, color is everywhere from the Jewelers of America Fashion Show runways to the Grammy Awards stage. In recognition of that celebrity-driven penchant, Topazery has selected an emerald-accented engagement ring as its July spotlight piece.

The slant toward vibrant hues is still going strong in the world of jewelry.

Colored jewelry, an accessories trend that displayed its first wave of momentum at the Grammys earlier this year, is showing no signs of stopping. In honor of the recent Jewelers of America Fashion Show’s reinforcement that color is here to stay, antique jewelry boutique Topazery has selected its July spotlight piece. Visitors to the online Topazery showroom will find an Art Deco engagement ring featuring emerald accents prominently featured throughout the month.

After the American Gem Trade Association’s CEO declared, “There was a tremendous amount of color on the runway at this year’s Jewelers of America Fashion Show,” Topazery founder Jan Walden thought she detected a trend. “Back in February, color was all over the music awards ceremony when the Grammy awards were handed out,” she explains. “Now, almost five months later, that slant toward vibrant hues is still going strong in the world of jewelry.”

To help her select July’s spotlight piece, Walden returned to the Grammys for inspiration. In the end, an antique emerald-accented engagement ring emerged as her winner.

Narrowing down the candidates was no easy task, though. Color was literally everywhere at the Grammys this year. Katy Perry, for instance, who donned a seafoam green gown, paired her pastel attire with a matching chalcedony ring. Similarly, chanteuse Adele matched her red floral frock with a pair of dark pink floral earrings. It was a combination of Rihanna’s and Kelly Rowland’s jewelry choices, however, that ultimately motivated Walden’s final selection.

“Rihanna opted for a Neil Lane diamond and ruby ring, but the rubies provided a subtle rather than an in-your-face accent to her attention-grabbing scarlet gown,” Walden relates. “In contrast, Kelly Rowland went for big and bold with a giant emerald ring to add wow to her sophisticated black dress. The emerald-accented engagement ring I chose as Topazery’s July spotlight piece marries the best of those two worlds. It offers the understatement of Rihanna’s style with the pop of green color Kelly gravitated toward.”

Indeed, the emerald-accented engagement ring Walden picked features a GIA certified old mine cut diamond that is accentuated by triangular step cut emeralds. These gemstone accents add just the right amount of colorful splash that is currently all the rage in the jewelry world.
