Gray Matters
Jewelry Trends


Some see the world in black and white. For others, most everything is in-between—in the gray area. That holds true for more than philosophical theories. For in fashion this fall and into spring 2008, gray is easily the most important color, or neutral. Deep charcoals, mid-tone gray, and even sweatshirt grays are being shown head to toe. Although gray is something found in jewelry, often achieved through finishing white metals, the strength of gray in ready-to-wear is creating renewed interest in gray colored gems and stones, from gray diamonds and Tahitian pearls to agates and minerals. For those who find it difficult to choose between black and white, gray is the way to go. — Jeff Prine
