Tis’ the season for heart jewelry! Hearts are always excellent picks for expressing your affection, and this is especially true as Valentine’s Day approaches. However, this year, why not surprise that special lady in your life with a piece that not only declares your love, but also displays a color that’s been taking the fashion and design worlds by storm? Amethyst jewelry that features heart-shaped gemstones combines the perpetual emblem of love with Pantone’s color of the year for 2014: Radiant Orchid. Together, these two elements create a celebration of love in full bloom.
Amethyst’s ability to display the color of the year makes it an especially fitting pick for romantic jewelry. By nature, Radiant Orchid seems to emulate exuberance, making it a perfect pick for capturing that feeling that sweeps you off your feet and fills you with life. Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, perfectly describes the feeling this violet hue creates: “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
A Pantone press release described Radiant Orchid “as adaptable as it is beautiful,” and this is true in more ways than one. Amethyst—and the color in which it sparkles—is an excellent pick for nearly any skin tone as it contains both warm and cool undertones, making it a nearly foolproof option when you’re shopping for that special someone. And, it’s lovely with both warm and cool metals, allowing you to find a piece that will easily coordinate with her existing jewelry collection.
The Heart Shaped Amethyst and Diamond Ring in 14K Yellow Gold is both outgoing and sweet as it showcases a 10mm heart-shaped amethyst and surrounds it with a gracefully sweeping setting of warmly shining gold. Five small diamonds accent this centerpiece with an extra touch of glimmer. The 1.50 Carat Heart Shape Amethyst and Diamond Earrings in 14K White Gold utilize a similar setting, replacing the 10mm center stone with a pair of 6mm heart-shaped amethyst and embracing these gems in cool 14K white gold.
The Crown Heart Amethyst and Diamond Pendant is an excellent way to let that special lady know that not only does she hold a place in your heart, she rules it. This feminine crown is crafted from beautiful yet affordable 10K white gold and showcases a 6mm heart-shaped amethyst, approximately a carat in weight. Three small round diamonds accent the bottom of this crown for an extra hint of dazzle. And, since this piece comes with an 18-inch white gold rope chain, it’s ready to give the moment you receive it.
As it displays the color that Pantone calls a ““captivating, magical, enigmatic purple,” amethyst heart jewelry conveys that your heart has been captivated and celebrates the mysterious beauty of love. Pieces like these are excellent picks for Valentine’s Day or any day that you’re looking to express your affection and do it in style.
