What's Your Color Crush?



 I've always been fascinated by colored gemstones and how their different hues can instantly change our moods.  Isn't it interesting how wearing certain stones can make us feel good?  If you're like me, you may be a bit fickle when it comes to having a favorite colored gem.  One minute I'm obsessing over rich blues and violates and the next I'm loving soft pastels or cool greens.  

The good news is, with my Colleen Lopez Gem Collection, you don't have to choose just one favorite!  Here are a few of my color crushes  - How about you?  What color are you crushing on these days?

Blush Hour 



There's nothing more peaceful than resting your gaze on the soft, delicate shade of pastel pink.  My new "Dress to Finesse" Cape Blouse in Silver Pink pared with my "Strawberry Sorbet" Pink Opal & Rhodolite Ring, and Morganite & White Zircon Cable Chain Bracelet are all you need to feel relaxed and pretty in pink!


Violet Viewpoint 





Wrap yourself in the richness of royalty in my "Class Act" Wrap Maxi Dress  and "Brighten Up" Amethyst Cluster Stud Earrings and "Luminous & Lovely" Amethyst & White Topaz Ring.  Luxurious and Energizing, if purple is your passion, add these beauties to your wardrobe and All Hail the Queen!


Lady Luck 



What is more refreshing that crisp, cool greens?  Wear my "Favorite" Peasant Top in jade paired with these stunning "Happily Emerald After" Emerald Earrings and "X Marks the Spot" Peridot & White Zircon Ring and you'll have admiring on lookers green with envy - Luck be the lady wearing enchanting green!





A Berry Good Year 




Here's a toast to your very (or Berry) good taste if saturated rosey red hues are first to draw your eye.  My "Yes to Finesse" cold shoulder top is the perfect pairing for my "Sparkling Sangria"  Rhodolite Ring & Line Bracelet - You'll be the toast of the town in these bountiful beauties!




Tantalizing Tanzanite 




When it comes to color crushes, Tanzanite is in a class all by itself!  One of the most coveted stones in the gem world, put on  my "Touch of Class" Shrug and Floral dress with my Tanzanite & White Zircon Ring & Pendant set and bask in the splendor and opulence of these beloved blue hues.

Flower Power 




I never promised you a rose garden, but I will promise a dreamy escape to sparkle town when you wear my "Elegant Expectations" floral dress and Swiss Blue Topaz "Fine Shining" Burst Ring & Bracelet.   A Jaw dropping dress pared with the coolest ocean blues makes for show stopping style!


So, have you picked a favorite yet?  Share your color crush with me!

My Blue Heaven


Ahhhh, London Blue - one of the dreamiest of all the blue stones is coming to HSN on May 6th - Welcome to My Blue Heaven!  If you find yourself drawn to this stunning blue gem, you're not alone.  London Blue Topaz is one of the most popular gemstones in the world - and for good reason.  Along with gorgeous, stable color, it's one of the hardest of all gemstones measuring and 8 on the MOHS scale of hardness.  

For Thousands of years, Topaz has been coveted as a prize gemstone, often mistaken for diamonds due to it's intense brilliance and perfect cleavage - a characteristic also found in diamonds.  It's long been believed that Topaz promotes good fortune. In fact, it has been said that dreaming of topaz may indicate that good fortune is on its way!!


Topaz is the birthstone for the month of December, and the stone given in celebration of the 4th and 19th anniversaries of marriage. Topaz is a symbol of love and affection - The perfect gift for your Mom for Mother's Day! 


Topaz gets its name from the Greek word topazion, which may originate from the Sanskirt tapas, meaning "fire." The name might also come from the name of the Egyptian island of topazos (now St Johns island) in the Red Seas.


The gorgeous tear drop shaped stones in this collection are AAA quality and were mined in Brazil where the most prized topaz mines in the world are located. 




Our London Blue stones were cut in this brilliant pear shape by the finest gemstone cutters in the world.  Bangkok is the world's center for the gemstone trade. Thai craftsmen have a talent for cutting rough stones unlike anywhere else in the world. They have been taught through the centuries the ability to cut the rough to show maximum luster and sparkle. Although other parts of the world, such as India and South America, also possess large gemstone industries, the skill of the Thai lapidaries is unsurpassed. 



Thailand is known as the gemstone capital of the world with up to 250,000 people employed in the trade. Through out Bangkok you will find all facets of the industry from the gem dealers in the gemstone markets to the cutting, setting and polishing facilities scattered throughout the city.  

Our beautiful London Blue topaz collection is created exclusively for HSN - Every detail from the quality of the stones, to the exquisite designs details will take your breath away!

hope you can treat yourself or someone you love to this glorious ring!  Join me at 12:00 Midnight ET on Tuesday May 5th into May 6th when in introduce you to "My Blue Heaven"!
