Color of the Month: Red

The color of love, red will make anyone’s heart skip a beat. Lucky and luxurious, red is a stimulating, dynamic color whose meanings include love, temptation and passion. Elizabeth Parker, Certified Gemologist Appraiser has this advice for those who want to add the delicious red accessories to their wardrobe, “Red gems offer a range of hues that complement fashion. Earthy red gems, or reds with a hint of cocoa brown include Mozambique Garnet, Madeira Citrine or Red Tourmaline. True reds, often with a hint of blue, include Ruby and Red Spinel. Tomato red gems include darker qualities of Mexican Fire Opal, Neon Carnelian and Red Coral. If you are searching for the perfect red, a variety of gems await”. 

Trend experts report that red is a color that is tops the mind of consumers. The Olympic Games is one influencing factor in reds rise to popularity. Held in China in August of 2008, red is a popular color in Asian countries where it symbolizes luck and fortune. This influence trickles down to the fashion scene where designers include red fabrics and patterns in their latest lines. Deep red combines with brilliant white and ebony black creating contrast, especially in fashions inspired by designs of the 1920’s to 1940’s. Cocoa reds add interest to urban fashions and designs derived from outdoor sportswear. 

What does red say about your personality? Elizabeth, states,“Red-lovers are involved, well informed and have a zest for life. Typically movers and shakers; lovers of red are competitive, daring and energetic.”

Passionate. Lucky. Luxurious. The color red makes your heart skip a beat. Be
daring with red gemstones like Ruby, Mozambique Garnet or Rhodolite Garnet.

Add the excitement of fiery red gems to your wardrobe.
