Feature: Pink Pleasures

  • Shine On
  • Sea the Light
  • Cocktails Anyone?
<< Back to Robb Report, July 2004

From powder to fuchsia, pink is the color of the moment in fashion and accessories. But with fine jewelry, pink is both au courant and classic. While viewing the world through rose-colored glasses, jewelry designers have uncovered a treasure trove of precious pink gems: vivid spinel, rich rubellite, icy morganite, and pretty, pale angelskin coral. In its various shades, pink assumes many moods—vintage, modern, delicate, or bold—which infuse these jewels with a timely and diverse femininity that is far more enduring than any fleeting fashion trend.
