The Fashion industry is flooding the market with its new palate of colors for the new spring lines, and hold on to your hand-me-downs—topping the list is emerald!
As you begin to see this vibrant color clutter the department stores and magazine layouts, you may begin to question, “What does it all mean?”
Emerald, obviously, is recognized as a brilliant stone, most notably worn by Cleopatra, Pharaoh of Egypt, who draped herself is this deep, cool, green tone. Elizabeth Taylor again popularized it during the 1960’s. Its last run faded during the late1980’s. But behold, it’s back!
“Green, by nature, is the most calming of all the colors on the color wheel. It encourages growth, reflection, peace and balance. It also represents healing and fertility.”
To be “green” is to be naive and bit new, but it also has the connotation of renewal, which makes sense, considering throughout time how it continues to reappear through popular culture.
It has also been pointed out that “green” is the color of genius, intellect, and rational thinking. In fact, the Romans believed wearing Emeralds could even heal the soul of those who wore them.
No time like to present to go out and buy a rich color of the past.
