Black is the color of New York, whether you’re sporting Ralph Lauren’s leather motorcycle jacket uniform on the Lower East Side or an Armani dress ensemble on the Upper, preppy Chanel riding boots or provocative studded Valentino pumps.
So this fall, why not add a little black bling?
At Betteridge Jewelers in Greenwich, you’ll find antique onyx pieces ranging from special cocktail jewelry to everyday cuffs and rings. Behind each is a story that’s as much of a conversation-starter as that strong onyx and silver bracelet or delicate drop earrings, which flatter women of all ages.
On the contemporary side of the equation, black diamonds have a subtle sparkle – sort of like diamonds in the rough. Black diamond-imbedded pendants, earrings and rings beg the curious to lean closer to get that dazzling effect.
And blackened gold details for men and women offer something of a character sketch. The message here is “I’m a style-savvy and detail-oriented yet trend-free shopper.” The ebony-ed fashionista and fashionisto aim for quality and functionality, but are bold enough to stray from conventional gold and white gold. While we are seeing more hot pinks and exciting neons in jewelry than ever, beautiful fine jewelry in basic black will always remain in fashion, from season to season and generation to generation.
