Kind of BLUE
The color blue may be associated with melancholy, but jewelry and watches appointed with icy aquamarines, luminous opals, and deep sapphires are sure to lift your mood. The sea has long been a favorite source of inspiration for designers, including those at Paris jewelry house Mathon, which often uses opals, such as the 8.63-carat gem in its Fée des Mers ring, part of a collection dedicated to novelist Jules Verne. Meanwhile, the Jellyfish collection from Nubeo, a newcomer to the watch scene, evokes its namesake ethereal sea creatures. Soothing shades of blue have never looked so exciting.
