Colorful ‘Very Peri’ Fine Jewelry from Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry in Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year
Colorful Periwinkle and Purple Fine Jewelry Creations Make Exquisite Valentine’s Day Gifts
This year’s Pantone Color of the Year, “Very Peri,” a cheerful periwinkle hue with hints of blue and purple, finds multi-faceted expression in these colored gemstone pieces. This curated fine jewelry collection also offers an unexpected and welcome new colorway for Valentine’s Day jewelry gifting.
From tantalizing tanzanite to alluring amethysts and vivid purple sapphires, each piece presents a different take on the timely tone, crafted by our artisans to the highest standard using only the rarest and most precious materials.
Few colored gemstones align as well with the “Very Peri” tone as well as tanzanite, long renowned for the gem's unique "pleochroic" color, a flashing effect that can present hues ranging from periwinkle to violet-blue in color. The supply of this rare gemstone is ever-dwindling, making tanzanite pieces wise acquisitions for the savvy gem collector: or truly special Valentine’s Day gifts to be treasured forever.
Stephen Silver’s tanzanite and diamond ring presents an intense violet-blue color with flashes of red emanating from within the stone.
This original high jewelry design features a stunning 26.48-carat cushion cut tanzanite graces this 18-karat white gold ring, nestled in a halo of round brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds that continue down the impeccable mounting for a total of 1.91 carats.
Purple Mozambique Garnet Pendant
Our California cool take on Very Peri in this disc pendant comes from a rich palette of purple Mozambique garnets (6.85 total carats), set in 18 karat gold, and finished with dramatic black rhodium.
The purple-disc-style pendant is suspended from an 18-karat gold black rhodium plated chain that offers the ultimate versatility to suit any neckline, adjustable to 16, 18, or 20 inches.
Multicolored Spinel Bib Necklace
This spectacular multicolored spinel bib necklace from Stephen Silver offers endless visual interest with a spectrum of multicolored spinel and garnets.
The lustrous multicolored cabochon cut Burmese spinel gems total 29.83 carats and the 4mm cushion cut mixed color spinels combine for a total of 18.08 carats. The incredible detail extends to the clasp, which features an untreated 1.17-carat cushion cut spessartite garnet.
Violet Sapphire and Purple Garnet Ring
We have updated the classic signet style ring with a playful design centered on a showstopping cushion cut violet-purple sapphire measuring 6.03 carats.
Three-quarters of the ring shank have been artfully paved in round brilliant cut purple garnets of various intensities and diameters (7.91 carats total), with an additional 1 carat of round brilliant cut diamonds that together create a dazzling dappled effect.
Amethyst and Hand Woven Leather Necklace
Our amethyst and hand-woven leather necklace was crafted to old-world estate jewelry standards but with a design that exudes a modern West Coast sensibility. The soft sheen of the hand-woven gold leather choker makes an exceptional foil to the strong lines of the central emerald cut amethyst.
The regal gem, set in 18-karat yellow gold, weighs in at an astonishing 80.85 carats and is ringed in round brilliant cut diamonds.
