One of the biggest trends in wedding themes in the past few years is using Jewel Tone Wedding Colors. Elegance and extravagance come to mind when thinking of Jewels, as does royalty and power. These bright and bold colors allow brides to make a statement with their choices, and can give them a great feeling of personal power and pride on their special day.
Some of the most common and popular Jewel Tones are Sapphire, Emerald, and Ruby. The deep blue sapphire color matches with nearly any color palette and is a great choice in the winter which allows the combination with silver, white, and turquoise.
Ruby is a great bold color choice for the bride that truly is looking at making a statement and works the best with white, light blue, silver and black, and is a great color for the summer and fall.
Dark green Emerald is an elegant color and can fit into most color pallets. It works well with other accenting jewel tones and is best used as a spring color.
With a jewel tone color wedding it is important that your decorations fit in with the overall elegance of the theme. Your table centerpieces should be done with flowers that accent your colors as well as give off a traditional feel. Sapphire goes great with white lilies. Ruby with red and white roses, and Emerald with yellow roses, and queen ann’s lace.

Fake diamonds and jewels can be placed around centerpieces and on tables to keep the jewelry colored theme alive and sparkling.
