Get Your Green On: Style for St. Patrick’s Day

Mar 11, 2011

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and if you want to avoid getting pinched, you’d better have some green in your fashion arsenal. The concept of wearing green to avoid getting pinched is a tradition started in the United States, probably around the early 18th century. The superstition was that the Good People, the proper Irish term for fairies and leprechauns, were unable to see the color green. By wearing that color, people could escape detection by leprechauns and thus avoid getting pinched. Pinching those who are not wearing green is a friendly warning that they could be pinched by worse.

However, green doesn’t have to be all shamrocks and novelty hats. If the Academy Awards are any indicator, green jewelry designs are the new trend in fashion accessories. Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, and Celine Dion were just a few celebrities on the red carpet sporting a ranging of dazzling emerald earrings, necklaces, and bracelets from top brands such as Bulgari and Cartier. This year, wear your green in style with some of these selections from King Jewelers.
