Flared trousers, which have suddenly taken over the catwalks, are joined by bright malachite – another echo of the 70s.
The spirit of the seventies suddenly and everywhere rushed into our lives – from fashion shows to jewelry stores. Malachite jewelry acts as the most popular and effective accessory of that time.
Malachite is considered a protective stone for travelers, and was mined by the ancient Egyptians in 4000 BC. The opaque stone has a characteristic rich green color due to the presence of copper. The most valuable specimens boast a mesmerizing pattern of alternating dark and light green stripes.
Malachite jewelry: the return of the seventies style
The spirit of the 70s unexpectedly everywhere rushed into our life – from fashion shows to jewelry stores, and malachite jewelry acts as the most popular and effective accessory of that time.
Malachite has a characteristic rich green color. Tthe most valuable specimens boast a mesmerizing pattern of alternating dark and light green stripes.
Fashion designers who create truly artistic jewelry use malachite in their vintage and elegant jewelry. Beautiful stone texture pattern and luscious color contrast interestingly with the diamond inserts and gold, timeless classics combined with a new jewelry trend. The piercing green of malachite has returned to the Van Cleef & Arpels collection, and famous brands such as Georg Jensen, Bulgary and Cartier also presented a series of jewelry with this stone.
The gorgeous green color and natural striped pattern draw attention to its wearer. So malachite is great for creative people. Today it is also becoming a stylish response to the beloved era of the 70s.
At Baselworld 2016, Georg Jensen presented new versions of their Runa round necklace. And the most impressive, in our opinion, was the version with the use of malachite. The pattern of the texture of the stone and the rich color contrast interestingly with the simple silhouette of a pendant made of three large beads.
Nature has always occupied the first place in Kimberly MacDonald’s products. And the pendant with a malachite-azurite insert is a prime example of this design. And Andrea Foreman uses a natural striped pattern of malachite for a new version of her “rainbow” ring. This time in shades of gorgeous green.
