At Beksan Designs we noticed that our Lapis, Aquamarine, Fluorite, Amethyst, and Sapphire gemstones are in high demand. So we started thinking about why this is happening. Could this demand be following the 2013 Fall Fashion trends? Although summer is still in the air, we are noticing the change of summer into fall colors in the fashion world; various shades of blue, green, purple and red are popping up in September magazine ads and in many fashion photos!
Here is what Pantone sees as the New Fashion Colors for Fall 2013: (adapted from http://www.fashionising.com/trends/b--fall-colors-2013-winter-colors-27647.html#womens-colors
- Ahead of the fall 2013 fashion weeks, Pantone released their predictions of the season’s top color trends. Greens continue to feature heavily however away from the greens, Pantone predicts Acai purple, Mykonos blue (“Who wouldn’t like to get to a wonderful Greek island and breathe in the beautiful sea air?” notes Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s executive director), Samba red and Vivacious pink.
- Leatrice Eiseman goes on to say “Just as the leaves change in autumn, the consumer will enjoy the ability to change their “look” and try a new approach to their wardrobe for brisk days ahead. The Fall 2013 palette allows for that versatility and experimentation!
These colors are found through-out Beksan Designs’ collections of semi-precious stones set in 24k gold vermeil (Antika) and brass. Amethyst
as a gem stone:
purple, purple, purple and comes in soooo many shades, similar to Acai purple. Lapis
is a true reflection of Mykonos blue. Green aventurine and jade
fulfill the desire for green, and rose quartz and red agate
are the gemstones for those looking for shades like Samba red or Vivacious pink.
Adding jewelry in these Fall 2013 color tones is a great way to contemporize an outfit. Just ask Jenny, the Store Manager at Gallery of Jewels on 24th
Street, Noe Valley—San Francisco! They recently remodeled their store and we are fortunate to have Gallery of Jewels carrying a wide variety of Beksan Designs’ colorful Antika and brass earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. Jenny has also been a mentor for us. We have included her suggestions in some our new designs including earrings and rings with sapphires—which reminds us of Mykonos blue!
We have just added a number of new pieces at the Gallery of Jewels’ 24th
Street location. Now available are our new semi-precious stone rings set in 24k gold flanked with small diamonds on each side! (see the photo) These rings are stunning and we hope you will check them out at the shop!
