Whether evoking the warm, clear waters of the Mediterranean or the icy blue tones of the Atlantic, blue gemstones are everywhere this year. And from tanzanite to turquoise, blue sapphire to iolite, the Couture Show Las Vegas is no exception.

Endlessly inspired by the Pacific ocean, which lies just minutes from her Venice, California home, Irene Neuwirth does what she does best with a delicious and luxurious jumble of tanzanite and sapphires mixed with the warm vibrancy of Lightning Ridge opals, emeralds and multi-colored tourmalines.

Sticking to a simpler color palette, Nam Cho creates a textural feast with earrings of nubby sapphire and kyanite cabochons, with precious stones meticulously set to create a symmetrical pattern.

The eyes are on you in this heart pendant from Holly Dyment. With characteristic whimsical charm, she mixes vibrant iolite and amethyst with blue enamel. It’s also impossible to avoid being charmed by Temple St Clair’s owl ring in oceanic tones of blue-green tourmaline, Royal Blue Moonstone, emerald and sapphire.

Jemma Wynne updates its signature open bangles with mismatched tanzanites that just scream to be stacked, and Pamela Huizenga’s spectacular opal ring invites you to dive in and enjoy its seemingly bottomless depths. …read more at
