Retailing for under $45, each ring is inspired by birthstone colors
COLUMBIA, Md., July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --The fashion and accessory forecast for this summer? Color. From sporting a color block top to mixing a brightly colored dress with shoes and a purse in contrasting tones, the ways to wear color are endless.
Just in time for the color trend, PANDORA recently launched 12 affordable, sterling silver rings inspired by the colors of birthstones. Each birthday bloom ring retails for only $45 and is designed to be stacked with other colorful or plain sterling silver PANDORA rings. A semi-precious solitaire stone is perfectly rounded and surrounded with delicate, hand-finished details set atop a textured band of sterling silver beads.
"Accessories, such as jewelry, are the most common ways for a woman to alter her look to match her outfit," said Angel Ilagan, Vice President, Marketing, PANDORA North America. "PANDORA's great-looking and affordable birthday bloom rings can be a fun and easy way to add hints of color that can be worn from one season to another."
The 12 semi-precious stones that can be found on the PANDORA birthday bloom rings include the following:
- Garnet (deep red)- January
- Amethyst (light purple)- February
- Aquamarine (pale blue) - March
- Quartz (clear/white) - April
- Chrysoprase (bright green) - May
- Grey Moonstone (pale grey) - June
- Carnelian (orange) - July
- Peridot (pale green) - August
- Lapis (deep blue) - September
- Pink Opal (pale pink) - October
- Gold Citrine (deep yellow) - November
- Turquoise (turquoise blue) - December
Just as every charm on a PANDORA bracelet tells a unique story, birthstones also have stories and folklore beyond their color. Birthstones are believed to bestow luck or healing powers to the person wearing the stone during its assigned month. For example, lapis (September/blue) is believed to promote openness, truthfulness and creativity, while citrine (November/yellow) encourages success, abundance and clear thinking.
