Contrast is essential to any work of art that wants to use tension to draw the viewer’s eye. In terms of jewelry design, there are myriad ways to play textures and colors against one another to achieve powerfully dramatic effects. One of the more popular trends in this regard involves contrasting dark gemstones such as black diamond, onyx, and oxidized silver with bright yellow gold and colorless diamonds. The resultant yin-yang effect is striking. The contrast creates an elegant look that is most at home in the shimmering light of a candlelit table for two or an evening at the theatre. There are times when a woman wants drama in her life, and this is the jewelry to wear for the occasion. Putting items with contrasting textures as well as contrasting colors creates a unique piece of jewelry. We want to offer you something important and exciting for your next jewelry purchase.
