Pantone Spring 2012 Color Guide Inspired Jewelry – Part II

Spring 2012 is finally here, and that means one thing — it’s time to pack away your winter accessories and make room for  your spring collection. Do you need a new gorgeous gem to breathe life into your spring jewelry collection? If so, there’s no better guidepost than the Pantone Color Institute’s Spring 2012 colors list. Here are last five hues on Pantone’s Spring 2012 color palate, each paired with a gorgeous gem of a similar hue! And be sure to check out Part I of this series for a recap of the first five colors on the Pantone Color Institute’s Spring 2012 color list! Margarita This dusty green shade is all about a soft glow — and you’ll add the same soft radiance to your look when you wear a Peridot ring or earrings . Just look for a more subtle Peridot hue that matches the pastel aspects of the Margarita shade. Sweet Lilac This fresh baby pink shade adds whimsical romance to Pantone’s Spring 2012 colors list. And there’s undoubtedly only one choice when it comes to pink gems: the pink diamond . This gorgeous fancy pink radiant cut diamond in Diamond & Estate Trust’s collection is the vision of springtime romance. Driftwood This charcoal grey neutral brings to mind the beautiful, dark luster of grey diamonds . And if a grey diamond doesn’t suit your sense of style, Driftwood is a perfect complementary color to any brighter hue, making a yellow, green or blue colored diamond a striking choice for pairing. Bellflower Of all the colors on the Pantone Color Institute’s Spring 2012 color list, Bellflower is probably the hue that will transition most seamlessly into the fall season. Just at this ornamental purple shade can carry you through the year, this gorgeous vintage amethyst ring from our collection will be in vogue no matter the season. Cockatoo Our favorite color on Pantone’s Spring 2012 list is this tactile blue-green shade. When you’re in the mood for some Cockatoo flair, an aquamarine ring such as this 30 carat vintage stunner in the Diamond & Estate Trust collection is sure to make your spirits soar. Let Diamond & Estate Trust help you find the perfect piece of jewelry to match the beauty of each Pantone Spring 2012 color. Whether you’re infatuated with Cockatoo, romanced by Sweet Lilac, or knocked out by Cabaret, we have the perfect gem with a vibrant hue to match. And for the ultimate jewelery look inspired by Pantone’s Spring 2012 colors, we will create you a custom piece that embodies your style and the spirit of the season. Diamond & Estate Trust’s collection of loose gems such as diamonds , colored diamonds , rubies and sapphires , as well as estate jewelry make us Southern California’s premier luxury jewelry buyer and seller .

What is a Cushion Cut- Jewelry 101

What is a Cushion Cut- Jewelry 101

The cushion cut is often called the candlelight cut – a moniker that refers to the delicate work 19 th Century jewelers would perform by candlelight to hand-cut this shape’s stunning facets. But there’s another reason the nickname fits: The superbly shaped cushion cut diamond has all the subtle romance and luster of a candlelit evening. A 4.51 carat cushion cut diamond from the Diamond & Estate Trust collection. The cushion cut , an antique cut also called the pillow cut, was the most vogue gem style in the 19 th Century and has seen its popularity soar again recently due to its timeless, soft shape. A cross between the Old Mine Cut and the oval cut, the cushion cut diamond has dozens of large facets that give it its characteristic soft glow. That glow is often lost in fiery, modern cuts that are instead designed to return as much light to the eye as possible in quick flashes. A cushion cut’s facet plan gives the shape its endless depth and luster, and rounded corners provide a graceful, polished look. Look for the cushion cut in shapes ranging from rectangular to square. Two GIA certified cushion cut diamonds from the Diamond & Estate Trust collection. The cushion cut’s effortless romance and charm has made it a popular engagement ring cut for a century, with luxury jewelers such as Tiffany and Harry Winston pairing the unique shape with timeless settings. Owners of the world’s most famous gemstones have also trusted the cushion cut to amplify the beauty of their magnificent jewels. The Hope Diamond , the yellow Tiffany Diamond and the 423 carat Logan Sapphire, the largest cut blue sapphire in the world, all feature cushion cuts that matches their regal, exquisite beauty. Its timeless look and appeal make the cushion cut a strong investment in your jewelry collection’s future. Diamond & Estate Trust has a collection of exquisite cushion cut gems, including a GIA certified 4.51 carat cushion cut diamond in a classic square shape, a GIA certified 4.01 carat cushion cut diamond with a striking blue fluorescence, and a luxurious, GIA certified 5.01 carat rectangular cushion cut diamond . These diamonds are stunning on their own but would make an even bolder statement as the focal point of a custom piece .
