St Patrick’s Day, CIRCA is celebrating the best way we know how: with emeralds.
The emerald isles of Ireland may be known for shamrocks and clovers, but that same green can be found in some of our favorite jewelry. Emeralds are found all over the world, but ironically not in Ireland. The best of the best, however, come from the Muzo mine in Colombia. Famous for that iconic color, the mine has been producing stones for hundreds of years. From Cleopatra to Elizabeth Taylor, countless women have fallen for this timeless stone.
These Bulgari earrings from the 1980’s are a classic example of design in the era of excess. Big and bold, the bright colors of the emerald and sapphires contrast beautifully with the clean brilliance of diamonds. This style’s striking contrast fits perfectly with today’s color block trend. Since emerald is Pantone’s color for 2013, it’s the perfect way to enjoy St. Patricks’s Day in style.
