Inspiration Board: Carnelian

Florence October


It's no secret that carnelian happens to be one of my favorite stones. The color is rich, the stone has character ... I mean what's not to love. I am always on the look out for an unusual cut stone and this soft-cornered, carnelian triangles are just so luscious  While my usual preference is silver, this rich orange color pairs so beautifully with gold.

What a pretty color! It says fall yet is still so happy, if that makes sense.

What gorgeous carnelians! They have great color and wonderful shape. Perfect!
as to the shoe comments from Bobbie and Therese...i would wear them in a heartbeat if they were dansko clogs, with that same color and same shine!

What beautiful picks! I love carnelian too, such an antique-y feel to it, especially when paired with with gold. That lipstick looks so lush; I'd use it if I used lipstick!

I love the dress. Like the shoes but am afraid I might break my neck in them...

This looks like a beautiful date night ensemble, and the bangles and sunglasses are fun.

Such a pretty board. The earrings are beautiful. I agree with carnelian looking better with gold. It has such a warm coloring.
