Tangerine Tango: The Fashion Color For 2012


Sarah Bernard of The Thread just released the new fashion color for 2012: Tangerine Tango. While she doesn’t mention any gemstone jewelry that might offer a great way for you to accessorize in style, consider stylish jewelry made with padparadschas or orange sapphires, fire opal, malaya or spessartite garnets, imperial or orange topaz, and more.

The image above shows a Chatham-created padparadscha orange sapphire in front, a fire opal in the upper left and a spessartite garnet to the right.
