One of my favorite dishes to make, and eat of course, is Chicken Marsala. The earthy warm hue of the fortified wine used in the dish has been selected as Pantone’s Color of 2015. Marsala’s rich reddish brown hue is perfectly captured in a wide range of gems, from garnets and tourmalines to spinels and rubies.
Set in yellow gold, the radiant metal proves the best foil for these marsala-hued gems, helping them to shine a vibrant amalgam of brown and red. Growing up an FSU Seminole football fan thanks to my dad, the university’s “Garnet & Gold” colors have always appealed to me – and marsala is not too far off from garnet. Thus, one of my favorite color combinations happens to be this deep brownish red color with yellow gold, and jewelry executes this pairing to perfection.
