Classic Blue is a beautiful color all on its own and we have some lovely inspiration for making jewelry designs that feature bold blue style in our Design Studio. Our Grecian Mosaic bracelet combines Miyuki Tila beads, a Crystal Designer Blend, and TOHO Demi Round Beads in a stunning multi-strand look. Crystal pearls in Iridescent Dark Blue and an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend come together in our Selene bracelet for a double flat spiral stitch design that’s sure to draw attention.

If you want to combine Classic Blue with other colors, silver and white are timeless choices. Our Giverny jewelry set features Majestic Blue crystals paired with the perfect Grace Lampwork beads and crystal pearls in the silvery Iridescent Dove Grey. The Blue Flame necklace gets creative with silver tube beads and a Lapis Lazuli pendant in unique, wavy shapes. Cynthia’s Misty Fjords bracelet is a winter wonder, pairing blue CzechMates Tile Beads with metallic silver daggers in an unforgettable bead weaving design. The Star Gazer necklace is another great example of the elegance of Classic Blue paired with the dazzle of silver and white tones.

Classic Blue with Gold

We have fallen in love with this color and we’re sure you have, too!

Another favorite combo with Classic Blue is copper and rose gold. It adds something striking and unexpected to jewelry styles. Our Blush and Blue necklace adds sweet flower dangles to this cute color palette, while our Grand Canyon Falls bracelet keeps it simple with a basic stringing pattern of spacers and Czech glass rondelles.
