RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, has been announced as the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013. And while the verdant hue will be showcased everywhere from custom interiors to haute couture, emerald will shine most spectacularly in brilliant jewelry from Stauer, www.stauer.com.
The online luxury retailer offers a wide variety of genuine emerald and lab-created emerald jewelry starting at only $49. Among their most popular pieces are the 200-carat Cayman Emerald Necklace ($79) and the platinum-layered, lab-created Scienza Emerald Verde Ring ($249). While the Cayman Necklace captures the natural variations of the precious gemstone, the Verde Ring highlights the near-flawless color made possible only through laboratory-grown emeralds.
“Look closely at any historic, astronomically-expensive emerald and you’ll find natural flaws,” said Stauer President Michael Bisceglia . “But the beauty of a scientifically-crafted emerald is that it delivers a pure, vivid green that billionaire collectors can only dream about finding in a natural gemstone. And it makes that caliber of emerald color affordable to anyone.”
Emerald is known as the color of growth, renewal and prosperity according to color experts at Pantone. The color has been rising for several seasons in both the fashion and decor markets and has increasingly become a staple color on the red carpet. Green is the most abundant color in nature making it one of the most seen colors in the spectrum. Stauer is one step ahead of the trend offering many brilliant emerald jewelry pieces for 2013.
