The latest object of attention of Neiman Marcus‘ Senior Accessories Editor, Roopal Patel are fabulous bordeaux items.
I have always loved this color. Most of the time, however, I’d forget its name and would just describe it as dark red or the color of wine. I think it’s a safe bet if you want to wear something within the family of the color red but are not daring enough to do so or if it does not fit your skin complexion.
Upon browsing through all of Ms. Patel’s bordeaux choices, I can’t help but realize that the color can and does resemble that of garnet! Garnet has a deep dark red color which is sometimes difficult to photograph. I have spent hours trying to get the right hues of the color come out. Most of the time, I’d wait for different times of the day just to get that perfect shot.
I am not a professional photographer but I do know how to balance light or ISO settings. Most of the time I will use macro shots. But thanks to my trusty Canon G10, which was a gift from my dad, I was able to capture these wonderful shots of garnet:
The necklace in the first photo is available here.
The one in the second photo was a custom request for a garnet necklace and earring set, garnet being her birth month.
