Cool it with calming blue and green gems.


Watercolors entice with their mesmerizing charms, the gentle shades of green and blue evoking maritime serenity even miles from the sea. And what better way to indulge in such captivating calm than with pretty polished gems in brilliant azure, chartreuse and aquamarine? Replete with alternating teardrop-shaped peridot and apatite beads, Taffin’s triple-strand necklace employs the cool palette with subtle power. Meanwhile, Cathy Waterman’s gold pendant necklace looks more overtly romantic by comparison, its smooth green tourmaline suspended within two scalloped diamond rings that create a jeweled ripple effect. Dive in.
