New Colorful and Golden Jewelry Designs from the Couture Show

The NightFall collection by Lagos was one the many new collections unveiled by designer Steven Lagos. It consists of black spinel, 18k gold and diamonds. It is available exclusively at Neiman Marcus through October.

Colored gemstones, which were widely used in place of diamonds during the recession, have continued to find acceptance among designers, retailers and consumers. A variety of bold, precious gems, ranging from dark blue lapis to red spinels to multi-colored sapphires were on display during the Couture Show in the Wynn Las Vegas. Of course, emerald, the color of the year, was prevalent among the designs as well as citrine. In many cases these gems were matched with high-karat gold, which has made a striking and glittering return to the jewelry stage.

Below is a listing of some of the jewelry shown at Couture.
