12 Las Vegas Jewelry Trends, No. 4, Cerulean Style: Blue Jewels Are Easy to Love

Bracelet in 18k gold with turquoise from Daria de Koning

New York City, May 14, 2019. Given that the color blue is the world’s favorite hue, it’s not surprising that blue is also beloved in jewelry. From Tiffanyesque eggshell blue rocks to summer’s favorite jewel, turquoise, to depths-of-the-oceanlike lapis lazuli, and myriad other shades—think denim-looking kyanite, zircon, and sapphire and sky-blue aquamarine and topaz—the color blue in jewelry is a no-brainer. Blue sapphires from Montana are definitely enjoying a moment of popularity (particularly in wedding rings), while blue enamel and colorized titanium are two more ways to get an azure fix. Plus, blue offers a memorable color-blocking effect when paired with Pantone’s Color of 2019, Living Coral. Feeling blue? We’re there, too, but this blue world is the upbeat, chic place to be.
