Erica Courtney, Zultanite, and Charriol featured in the latest edition of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style

Grace Ormonde Wedding Style featured Erica Courtney, Zultanite, and Charriol in their gorgeous bridal Style Issue. Every bride wants to look like a million bucks and Erica Courtney’s pieces guarantee – it is her motto after all – that every bride will look Drop Dead Gorgeous on her special day. Erica’s Candace Diamond wedding band set in 18K yellow gold, and diamond and Tanzanite Haley Hoops took center stage in the spread – and the Tanzanite hoops could totally work as a bride’s “something blue”!

For an untraditional bridal look, Grace Ormonde chose to show Daniel Gibbings’ color-changing Zultanite Teardrop earrings, featuring Ruby accents set in 20K yellow gold. Even though they say the wedding day is all about the Bride, the groom needs some attention too! Charriol’s men’s Alexandre Steel cable watch would compliment any man’s tux on the big day, and make for a subtle and sophisticated accessory.

Pantone announces it’s Color of the year, looks like Delatori’s Carnelian!

Pantone, the last say on color trends, named Tangerine Tango as their color of the year for 2012. This vibrant and sunny hue looks gorgeous when paired with gold and makes us want to jet off to St. Barths immediately (well, we can wish can’t we?). DeLatori is certainly on-trend with many of their new pieces, incorporating carnelian into their designs. A few of their new cocktail rings (including their ring nominated for a JCK Jewelers’ Choice Award) feature Carnelian, a color that closely mirrors the bright hue of Tangerine Tango. How will you be incorporating Tangerine into your wardrobe in 2012?
