Ombré (from the French world “ombrer” meaning to shade) is a colouring technique when the shade fades from light to dark. The gradient colours are stunning when used in hair trends, nails and billowy silky fabrics. I’ve even used the ombré trend with lipstick with a dark purple/red fading into a natural pink in the inner lip. You can say I’m a little obsessed. I adapted the hair trend a number of years ago now because of it’s easy up-keep and beach hair look but I’m in love with bright spring coloured ombré jewelry this spring.

The idea is to have a gradual change between gems with a smooth transition without a distinguished line between shades. I love ombré faded jewelry on big bold gems for statement pieces and and small gradual fades on gems of the same size. We recently had a client who inherited a number of pearl pieces from her grandmother that did not suit her taste. We restrung the pearls of different colours to a subtle ombré fade that incorporated her grandmother’s heirlooms with an unexpected twist of today’s look. We loved how elegant and trendy the pearls looked!
