Emerald green earrings

emerald earrings

Lively. Radiant. Lush…A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.

Last year Pantone decreed that emerald-green would be the color of 2013 and ever since I’ve wondered just how I would wear it. It’s a beautiful color, but a little goes a long way. Earrings, especially statement earrings like these “Valentina” drops by Teri Aman, are just the right hint of the gorgeous color. They’re made of chalcedony, freshwater pearl and gold-plated silver and Teri wants to give away a pair to one of my readers.

But first, more photos.

    I am a natural redhead with “ever so slightly” greenish eyes. Emerald is the only colour that makes me look even nice without make up. Simply love it!

    • Heather Fonseca March 11, 2013 at 9:01 pm #

      Your natural coloring sounds very beautiful Gerdien. My eyes are between blue and green too, but I have regular brown hair. I think blue is better for me, but I still love green.

    Beautiful. I have seen these before in one of your posts, haven’t I? And commented how beautiful I find them.
    I won’t join the give-away, but I might buy them. Then I know for sure I am the winner.

      I’m so glad you like the earrings. I did feature them last week as a bit of a preview with another outfit. (:

    Wow! These earrings are fabulous. I am not a great fan of emerald green for clothes but for jewels, yes yes yes.
    You could esaily model for jewels, Heather. All these photos are very glamorous! Congrats to you and to Dear Photographer.

    These earring are gorgeous Heather! And you look beautiful in your photos too. I plan on shopping for some emerald green this year and I certainly will be wearing it if I win these beautiful earrings. They’d look great with so many things.

      Hi Tracy. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. I too plan on shopping for some more emerald green this year. The more I get of it, the more I seem to want it.

    I love emerald! In clothes and in accessories! I have a vintage emerald skirt that I absolutely love.

    I love these photos! I think a disagree though, because I really think that emerald green is one of those colors of which you just CANNOT have too much! I’d wear a full on cat suit in emerald green!

    • Heather Fonseca March 11, 2013 at 8:50 pm #

      Hi Fenn! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. (: I actually have a lot of bright green in my wardrobe, mostly accessories like purses, but I do have one pretty darn great kelly green jacket that I found at the Goodwill. I wouldn’t be surprised if I found myself the owner of a pair of emerald green jeans either…

    I would wear with them with pearly whites.

  14. Susie March 14, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

    I am guessing the emerald green accessories for St. Patty’s day don’t count? 🙂 Actually I bought emerald green running shoes this year too. But best of all is just a tank top I can wear under most v-necks for a little pop!

    • Heather Fonseca March 14, 2013 at 8:12 pm #

      Sounds good Susie. I think emerald green for St. Patty’s day counts too. (:

    Hello Heather,

    It’s my first time to visit your blog and may I say that this is very gorgeous. I love the way you laid it out and great quality photos to show. Do you often bring a camera with you or are you using an iphone? I really love the photo of you with those emerald green earrings. I will surely follow more post from you.

      Hi Amy. Thanks for taking part in the give away. Most of the photos on this blog were taken with a DSLr camera, either mine or my husband’s. I do like using the camera on my phone for instagram etc, but I don’t usually post them on the blog because my phone is really old and the photos aren’t great. The new phones have much better cameras, so maybe one day that will change.

    I am wearing emerald green through my makeup. It’s my favorite way to express myself and I truly love makeup looks that stand out and are a little more dramatic. This is the perfect color for my taste.

    • Heather Fonseca March 17, 2013 at 9:03 am #

      Emerald green eye shadow is beautiful too! Very dramatic.
