Color in Costume Jewelry: Blue

Posted by Laurie Zeiden on

There are hundreds of shades of blue. Just check a Pantone color guide or a Porter Paints color fan-deck and the blues jump out at you. My focus today will be on primary blue, azure, bright blue, cobalt blue and all those other tones that are saturated with color.

Symbolically, blue represents both the sky and the sea, and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity. Don't know how accurate that is; I leave it to the color experts. I just know blue jewelry catches my eye every time I see it.

I hope you enjoy these examples.
