Magnificent Marsala ~ 5 Inspiring Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Designs for the Stylist in You!

Marsala Pantone Color of the Year 2015

(Color Love – Pantone Marsala by suelibertiny on Polyvore)

My new color crush is emphatically, marvelous Marsala!

I adore this color, not only because it’s the color of the year, but because it provides a versatile platform for which so many complementary colors can emerge from, such as deeper or lighter red colors, as well as purple or pinkish – salmon hues. This intoxicating tone also has the added benefit of pairing incredibly well with standard colors, such as gold, silver, white and black.

You just can’t go wrong with the multi-talented Marsala!

Swarovski Marsala Ruby and Gold Bracelet

Bracelet designed by Fineheart handmade jewelry on Etsy.

This gorgeous Swarovski Crystal bracelet features the 5520 Graphic beads in Ruby along with charming accents of 5020 Helix Beads in Crystal Golden Shadow. These color combinations work remarkably well with the 14K gold wire and clasp, creating a stately, sophisticated and high-end piece.

Swarovski Crystal Pearl Bordeaux Bracelet with silver pave beads

This bracelet design was created by DebraAnnCreations found on her Etsy page.

This beautifully simple yet very elegant Swarovski Bordeaux Pearl bracelet is accentuated with silver crystal pave beads. The silver really pops against the rich maroon-like red pearls.

 Marsala pearl and crystal necklace with silver tones

This twisted pearl and crystal necklace was created by JoyKatharine found on her Etsy site.

The berry-like tones found in Marsala pairs exceptionally well with silver hues as well. This multi-stranded Burgundy, Blackberry and Light Grey Swarovski Pearl necklace incorporates a touch of sparkle creating a youthful, energetic look that is fashionably chic. These are not Swarovski crystals, so to make this more of a luxurious, timeless piece, incorporate Swarovski Beads in light to medium grey tones such as Crystal Silver Shade, Crystal Satin or Black Diamond.

Swarovski Crystal Ruby, Padparadascha and Light Rose Earrings

These earrings were designed by Crystal Victoria found on her Flicker page.

Similar Marsala colors include Siam and Ruby which coalesce especially well with soft pink and salmon-like hues such as Light Rose and Padparadscha found in these lovely Swarovski Crystal Bicone earrings. A natural complimentary tone to tie these influences together is gold or rose-gold finishes.

 Swarovski Marsala Burgundy Emerald Cut Necklace

This necklace was made by BeYourselfJewelry and found on their Etsy page.

This stunning necklace is so captivating, it’s a standalone Burgundy beauty!

The Swarovski 4627-27 x 18.5mm Emerald Cut Fancy Stone boasts a brilliantly robust and earthy red wine color. This elegant style radiates an exquisite faceting structure that is graceful and timeless.
