After looking at the Fall 2012 runway shows, it is clear that purple will be a huge trend for the Fall. Designers like Christian Dior, Christopher Kane and Alberta Ferretti all used shades of purple - from plum to violet to lavender - you could see purple throughout their collections. The ASHA Fall 2012 collection has purple in it as well. I used amethyst stones in many of my earrings. My favorite is the Else which is made of amethyst, white coral, and white topaz.
