Using jewel tone colors is a great way to add impact to your decor while staying away from the traditional red and pink you see at most receptions. Our favorite jewel tone is Emerald. It can be combined with many colors such as gold, purple, blush pink and sapphire or it can stand alone. We love it as an accent color as it give an elegant pop to any decor. If you are feeling daring even consider it for your jewelry, shoes or even your dress.
