Pantone recently announced its 2015 color of the year, Marsala, which is described as a "naturally robust and earthy wine red." When I saw the news, I immediately thought of the darker brownish- and purplish-red garnets that can be found in jewelry from the Georgian and Victorian periods.

Stocking Stuffers: Warm Your Ears with 6 Sweet Earring Jackets

Wed, 17 Dec 2014

By Erika Winters

Baby, it's cold outside, and what better way to warm your ears than with a pair of sparkling earring jackets! In recent years earring jackets have seen a huge revival, and some designers are taking jackets to the next level with styles that rest just under the earlobe--and are meant to be worn alone. Asymmetrical earrings are everywhere now, so a jacket is a great way to try on the style--with just a little assembly required. You simply slip your stud through the small hole, attach the backing, and presto! A new earring look! All you need is a pair of studs to get started.
