10 Outrageous Pieces of Green Jewelry to Covet on St. Patrick’s Day

J. Lo

There’s no better opportunity to drool over outrageous emeralds, jade, and other precious stones than St. Patrick’s Day. Fortunately, many designers have been making enviable, over-the-top pieces that fit the bill this year. Vibrant jade and emerald are front and center in this pair of decadent chandelier earrings from Lydia Courteille, while a stainless steel vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch features a custom-colored kelly green dial studded with white-diamond hour markers. The Emeraude En Majesté collection from Van Cleef & Arpels bears witness to the special attachment that has always felt for this precious stone, the Happy Hearts line from Chopard embraces the heart as a symbolic motif of the Happy Diamonds collection, and Monique Pean created a pair of stunning, sculptural green stud earrings. Here, 10 over-the-top pieces of jewelry to obsess over on St. Patrick’s Day–and wear throughout the season.
