Swarovski has always been fascinated by the psychology of color, as colors evoke emotion, influence our thoughts, and even moderate our stress levels. Swarovski is taking us on a journey of color with their Psychology of Color program. For 11 months, we will be exploring a Swarovski color each month, diving into the effects colors can have on us. For May, Swarovski is focusing on Light Topaz.┬
Light Topaz is an energetic and joyful color, expressing the sun’s brightness, warmth, and light. Swarovski describes it as the color of ideas and dreams, stimulating creativity and boosting confidence, as well as clearing the mind, reviving the spirit, and encouraging us to live life to the fullest. This rich and joyous color is a dominant color on the runway for Spring/Summer 2020. Indeed, the use of topaz goes back to Egyptian times when the Ancient Egyptians believed that yellow topaz received its golden hue from the Sun God, Ra. Clearly this fascinating color has mesmerized us throughout time and it’s a beautiful hue to add to your jewelry.┬
Swarovski came up with this beautiful inspirational project to show off how sunny and cheerful Light Topaz can be. These earrings combine Light Topaz cushion stones, bicones, and pendants with Sunshine DeLite stones, all held together on TierraCast hoops. These earrings are sure to bring a smile to your face.┬
We couldn’t resist designing with this illuminating color, either! These cute earrings feature faceted rounds accented by TierraCast bead caps and lotus post earrings for a sweet pineapple style. These are the perfect accents for your summer styles.┬
This dazzling color of pure sun also has us inspired to rethink some of our other Design Studio jewelry, too. We think Light Topaz 6mm Faceted Rounds and Light Topaz 4mm Bicones would make great substitutes for the Yellow Opal beads in our Lemon Sorbet necklace. For our Citron Drops earrings, you could replace the drops with our 16mm Light Topaz pear-shaped pendant. Use Light Topaz 6mm Faceted Rounds instead of the briolettes pictured to keep the colors consistent.┬
We offer lots of other beautiful items on our website that will work well with Light Topaz’s warmth. Swarovski’s Crystal Metallic Sunshine, Sunshine DeLite, and Crystal Buttercup Shiny LacquerPRO colors are all great choices to pair with the color. Lovely flower components in matching yellow hues are also a great choice for this color, as they will instantly make you think of summer’s warmth. We like this Gardanne Beads enameled pansy pendant and these Czech glass wild rose beads. Damyanah Studio’s sunflower bead is another beautiful choice. Our yellow freshwater pearls are a delicious match for Light Topaz and our yellow wood beads would make a boho statement alongside this gorgeous crystal color.┬
If you’re looking for the perfect blend of colors to pair instantly with Light Topaz, try our Verdant Sunshine Blend from the Artbeads Designer Series. These colors will complement the warm glow of Light Topaz beautifully and add to the irresistible summer feel.┬
