Tickled pink. Making boys wink. Whatever way you look it, the colour pink brings with it a playful joy and exuberance that is hard to suppress. In times like these when we need to grab on to every bit of vibrancy that we can find, now is the moment for pink jewels.
There is a shade of pink for every personality. Like yours bright? Check out the shocking pink hues that many jewellers are introducing via bright pops of enamel. Something softer? Try the subtle blush hues of gemstones such as morganite, tourmaline, sapphire, or even pink diamonds. Team with a warm hue of rose or yellow gold and you’ve got yourself a showstopper jewel.

The Rock Hound
To make this pendant from the HotRocks collection, the London jeweller has first taken a mould of a real quartz crystal before casting it in recycled silver. This is then given a zingy coating of one of 10 bright colours, including hot pink.
