One of 2015’s key colour trends saw a whitewash of jeans, shirts, dresses, trenches and more all worn in beautiful unison. Head-to-toe whites brought a fresh and crisp look to spring and continues to compliment and accentuate summer tans throughout the year. White has always been a popular jewellery colour especially with pearls being a much coveted gemstone for brides and fashion-conscious females alike. Shades of white make a wonderful contrast against all skin tones keeping the style understated with pure and simple statements.
A popular palette albeit one of very few nuances, we looked to our gemstone jewellery hoard to find the best and brightest whites in moonstone, mother of pearl, opal, agate and more. Here are a few of our style tips to accessorise your whites and incorporate some jewels into your look.
Throw Some Shapes
Where colour is simple, texture and shape can be used to draw attention. Try a checkerboard cut stone that glistens as it moves, or choose a smooth cabochon with some extra detailing. Sharp and angular marcasite that sparkles is a favourite of ours. Similarly, choose between matte and iridescence for difference in depth and tone. Moonstone, mother of pearl and opal have a beautiful gloss that can flaunt many hues of colour, whereas white agate gemstones are more classically cloudy and opaque.
Everything’s Going to be All White
Mix white stones with white metals for a clean and polished look. If you’re a die hard golden girl, yellow and rose gold can provide a little more neutrality with a lux feel.
Dare to layer
With a simple selection of colours, you have some room to play with volume. Try layering and stacking your rings and bracelets or team different lengths of pearl necklaces with matching studs for a unified look.
