Swarovski is exploring the power of color through their Psychology of Colors program – how colors affect our thoughts, emotions, and more. Each month, they’ll be highlighting a different color from the Swarovski family, diving into how these special colors can enhance our style and mood. For July, we’re focusing on Aquamarine. This dazzlingly cool color inspires feelings of relaxation, weightlessness, and purity. Think of gently rolling waves on a tropical beach or soft white feathers floating in blue air. This tranquil shade of blue promotes peacefulness and trust, while inspiring patience and also helping to calm the senses. It’s a wonderful color to add to your handmade jewelry designs and we have four ideas for adding it into your style.
Triple Ocean Waves Necklace
Swarovski’s Triple Ocean Waves necklace features a design that alternates from one strand to three throughout the look. This necklace includes the classic Aquamarine color and glittering Aquamarine Shimmer beads that feature a subtle flash of iridescent fun. The unique design will have you thinking of waves at the beach rolling in toward the shore. This is a great look for catching the eye with all-out Aquamarine beauty!
Aqua Drops Earrings
If you’re looking to add just a dash of Aquamarine to your style, these earrings are the perfect option. They feature a beautiful dangling shape thanks to the Aquamarine Baroque beads. When paired with Iridescent Light Blue crystal pearls and elegant gold findings, Aquamarine is a classic choice for your accessories. Wear them for a summertime barbecue, a romantic picnic, or poolside.
Brook’s Gift Earrings
These earrings were made for a wedding and we can see why! They are just right for bringing “Something Blue” to a bridal ensemble. Whether you’re getting married or not, these earrings are a refreshing touch on any outfit thanks to the Aquamarine bicones dangling at the bottom of the design.
Swarovski Aquamarine Shimmer Color Party
If you’re looking for color inspiration and would like to come up with your own jewelry design, our Color Party is a wonderful place to get started. This mix of beads and pendants all started with the beauty of Aquamarine Shimmer crystals and Cynthia added in a matching Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend, beautiful pendants from Gardanne Beads and Golem Design Studio, and even some lovely flower beads. Let this party of colors spark your creativity for your next beading project.
Bonus! More Colors to Match Aquamarine
We’re so inspired by Swarovski Aquamarine crystals, that we’re leaving you with some extra inspiration. We have lots of beautiful beads in complementary colors that would work perfectly with this color, so we thought we’d share some of our favorites. Why not pair this sparkling color with Aquamarine gemstones from Dakota Stones? They both feature beautiful light blue tones everyone will love. We also like the look of Aquamarine with our Dakota Stones Blue Impression Jasper and Blue Turquoise pointed pendant set. Aquamarine also pairs nicely with other Swarovski blues, like Crystal Bermuda Blue. Our Swarovski BeCharmed Pave Medleys bead is another great starting point for Swarovski color inspiration, since it features Crystal Metallic Blue, Denim Blue, Air Blue Opal, and Blue Shade crystals embedded into the surface. Aquamarine often reminds us of the ocean, so we thought it was a great match for our hand-dyed silk ribbon featuring the beautiful colors of a tropical sea. Try our Matubo SuperDuos in Aquamarine AB Matte for more ocean inspiration. Our Capri-Lined Aquamarine TOHO cube seed beads are another fun pairing for Aquamarine crystals. Since this color also reminds us of beautiful blue flowers, we had to add in some Czech glass hibiscus beads.
