The blend trend (aka tone on tone)
from The Jewelry Journalist
I'm not saying that the Italians invented it, but at the moment they're obsessed with it -- and it's bellissimo! When I was in Italy to view the new collections for 2010, jewelers kept showing me lines and using the word "blending." (At first, I had no idea what they were talking about. All these years covering jewelry and I'd never heard that one before.) But then, my "aha" moment: Oh, you mean monochromatic color combinations? Yes, of course, I knew that.
