green chalcedony ring
Today, we're going to get specific and focus in on one gorgeous piece: the green chalcedony ring. This ring allows you to show off two major current trends at the same time--not to mention it looks fantastic. Read on to learn why it's the perfect statement piece to add to your jewelry box.

The Color: Mint, that pastel shade of green-blue, is one of the hottest colors of the moment, and there's no question why. It's a color you can pull off year-round. In winter, it blends beautifully with whites and grays, in spring and summer it looks airy and cool, and in fall, it looks bright and cheerful against the fading trees. It's classic, but still feels fresh.

The Size: As mentioned in an earlier post, big rings are this season's big thing. They make a bold statement, set off simple outfits, and show a strong sense of style. However, a large cabochon ring like the green chalcedony ring is also classic. Through decades past, large stone rings have been a staple for fashionistas everywhere, so you never need to worry about it going out of style.

Oh, and if you're wondering what chalcedony is? It's actually a mineral, formed in layers--other types of chalcedony include agate and onyx. I'll skip the science book explanation, but chalcedony is known for its beautiful translucent, waxy finish, which the green chalcedony ring shows off beautifully. It's the perfect accessory to light up your hand day and night!
