After pushing through the dark and dreary winter months, nothing is more rewarding than a warm spring day spent wearing an elegant piece of jewelry with a seasonally appropriate splash of color. White gold and diamonds are all well and good through the frosty months, but once spring has sprung many of us are itching to dig into something a little more colorful. Whether you’re a fan of the more delicate pastel palette or your tastes run a bit bolder, sample our options for brightening up your accessories this season.
Amulette de Cartier
A classic example of the less-is-more mantra, this stunning and simple necklace from Cartier offers an elegant way to add a quick pop of color to any wardrobe. This particular example, set in 18k yellow gold, frames a beautiful brilliant-cut diamond on a disk of teal chrysoprase. If light teal isn’t particularly your speed, the balance of the collection provides ample color options using a wide range of precious and semi-precious stones including pink opal, lapis lazuli and malachite. $2,550.
Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic
Bold and colorful dials in a springtime palette are a rare occurrence in the watch industry these days, so when the Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic watch collection launched a few months ago, it was an obvious choice for the topic of spring colors. Available in a bold sunburst red, aqua and a peculiar shade of greenish gold, the Sixties Iconic offers a classic dress watch for those who aren’t afraid to stray from the traditional white, black or silver dials that have become painfully prevalent in the dress watch world. $7,500.
Bvlgari Parentesi Cocktail Necklace
“Less is more” often proves an effective strategy; however, there is almost always a solid excuse for choosing a different option. When a particular situation calls for a statement piece, Bvlgari more than happily obliges. The pairing of 18k pink gold with amethyst, citrine, quartz and diamonds makes this necklace, while by no means overthe- top, an absolute standout piece of hardware on any occasion. $43,600.

A couple of my friends and I decided to rent a house in the Camelback Mountain area of Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains for New Year’s Eve.
