As many of you already know, the beginning of each year includes a trip to Tucson for the gem show that takes over the city for weeks at a time. To say it’s huge is an understatement. We head in, armed with color stories and trends, but we really never know what we’re going to end up with. There is so much to look at, it’s overwhelming. You have to train your eye to look for what’s different: perhaps a new stone or a new cut in a previously seen color. Whatever it is, the rabbit hole we call the Tucson gem show always proves to be unpredictable. So it should be no surprise when we say the greens that make up our fall collection were not quite expected. We had never seen Moss Aquamarine nor Moss Agate before! As the collection came together, we realized we were re-creating the color swirls of peacock feathers. Considering that peacocks represent awakening, watchfulness, patience and luck, plus the beauty we all possess when our true colors shine, we’ll be wearing this collection for years to come!
