Drawing from the rich colors, textures, shapes and silhouettes of history, the Romance Trend uses the fashions of yesterday to create the styles of today.

Rich reds and dusky plums take the lead, promenading with warm neutrals and dark forest green. Metallics focus almost exclusively on aged gold--textured, treasured and repurposed. Rich colors, historical elements, repeated patterns and symmetrical style are the belles of the ball for jewelry in the Romance Trend.

Recreate historical detailing with filigree components, crown and coin charms and more. Colorful translucent gemstones such as garnet, ruby, amethyst and blue topaz captivate the eye in traditional shapes: briolette, chaton, round and rondelle. Include pearls and vintage-inspired Czech glass buttons with metallic accents. Capture images of pre-Raphaelite and Gilded Age art using ICE Resin® or Omni-Gel™. Adorn with chain, metallic cord or velvet ribbon to emulate the craftsmanship and quality of a bygone era.

Colors: Rich reds and dusky plums with warm neutrals, both light and dark, and a dashing stroke of deep forest green.
