One of my favorite things to talk about - jewelry!!
So, let's talk jewelry season looks - this might be one of my favorite blogs to write, as I am such a lover of all the jewels and shiny objects. Let's not forget that crowns and your heels can be just as powerful of a statement as the jewels that line your necks, wrists, fingers, and ears.
SPRING COURT - light, airy, with floral accents or staple pieces
STONES: rose, amethyst, emerald
COLORS: pastels versions of pinks, greens, lilacs, whites
I hate to be one of those people, but I'm going to be one of those people - I love a good Spring look. Spring is literally my favorite season, it is when everything is opening up again, it is bright, it is joy, it is total and complete fun. Now, don't get me wrong, I was also one of those people who did not read between the lines when reading ACOTAR for the first time and was absolutely in love with the Spring Court and well Tamlin. I was also one of those people that was in denial about Tamlin still in the second book... I can now confidently say that I do still love Spring, but not Tamlin. As a court itself, I believe that I honestly would fit in best here, it's the closest court that regularly reflects both my clothing and jewelry styles.
SUMMER COURT - light to dark shades of blue mimicking the ocean with gold and pearl accents
STONES: light sapphire, pearls
COLORS: light blues, teals, shades of blues, greens, whites
Summer, free time, beach time, vacation time - all words that I think of when thinking about summer. When I think of summer jewelry, I think of light and fun pieces, of flowers, and pearl, pieces that are bright and fun. I think that summer courts dresses for the ball would be lighter dresses with a lot of flow and that featuring unique pieces of jewelry that don't just sit on the necks and ears, but maybe even on the thighs or in a pair of stunning heels.
AUTUMN COURT - deep vibrant pieces that bear leaves and other make big statements
STONES: ruby, topaz, emerald
COLORS: oranges to rusts, emerald to olive greens, gold accents
You want all the deeper and dark colors, then welcome to the Autumn Court that features everything from oranges and rusts to the emeralds and gold tones. Autumn Courts features all the jewel tones that just scream class and wealth to me. I see pieces that feature large emeralds with speciality metal work, or works of art that are fit for Queens.
WINTER COURT - queen of ice, these looks will feature "ice" diamonds, and bold blues
STONES: cobalt, light sapphire, sapphire, diamonds
COLORS: whites, silvers, "ice", light to dark blues
Some might describe Winter as cold, but I like to think they would be intricate and detailed, with pieces that range from representing the idea of the season, to the vast expansion of shades of blues. I see everything from pieces featuring or resembling snowflakes, to moving water and ice, but also just pieces that are frosted or a stand alone piece.
DAY COURT - big, bold and gold with small colored accents
STONES: white pearl, topaz, emerald, light sapphire
COLORS: gold, emeralds, reds, blues
Day to me kind of combines all the Seasonal Courts, but with more gold, and bolder, less traditional settings and designs of the pieces. I get a lot of Native American, South America, Aztec, Greek, African vibes in the jewelry designed. I see Day with simple dresses that turn the wearer into a work of art by the jewelry that is paired with it. And let's not forget that Day is likely going to wear the most beautiful heels and crowns that resemble the shining day. If Day wear colors, I see them as accent jewels that bring a bit more life into the look.
DAWN COURT - bright, bold and gold
STONES: white pearl, topaz, ruby
COLORS: golds, whites, blacks
Honestly, I think that I channel both the Day and Dawn Court jewelry looks in my everyday life. I love gold jewelry, it's the only metals that I will wear, and I think it just looks nice on my skin, but also very easily makes a statement. Dawn is just golden to me, like the rising sun, its bright, bold and gold. Some might thing that Dawn's jewelry looks might look cold, but I see it as bright and warming.
NIGHT COURT - bold, chic, and attention worthy pieces
STONES: black onyx, cobalt
COLORS: silvers, light to dark blues, blacks
I have an inkling of a feeling that I will be seeing a ton of Night Court inspired jewelry pieces on the necks, wrists and ears of our guests at the Starfall Ball. Second to Spring, Night Court is probably my favorite jewelry look. It is everything from simple pieces that can accent a stunning look, to loud and bold pieces that scream power, and demand the attention that is well deserved.
