Rose quartz. Pantone named it color of the year 2016. It’s a light, delicate and reassuring nuance of pink. Stella McCartney and Carolina Herrera propose it for impactful total looks, both with a romantic and very feminine vibe, from the sporty suit to the voile minidress. Like Audrey Hepburn, we believe in the "power of pink".   

Serenity blue. Its name suggests and confirms its tranquil and harmonious mood. With a positive, almost metaphysical energy. This is why it finds its elegant balance when combined with black, see Céline, with white, Christian Dior or sheerness, Blumarine.  

Orange Peach. A particular orange nuance that includes pink tones. It recalls the velvety peel of a peach. An extremely refined tone that gets exotic in the tunic by Christian Siriano, sophisticated in the gathering by Roberto Cavalli or romantic in the tone on tone embroidery sen at Lela Rose. For your summer nights.  

Sunshine yellow. The perfect summer hue, full-bodied and warm. The key color in the light long dresses by Prabal Gurung and Valentino. Its best ally is bottle-green for accessories or a loose garment like the Marni pants.  

Tropical green. The lush color of tropical forests that reflects the rebirth of vegetation. It flourishes in the 2016 Spring/Summer 2016 collections by Gucci and Vetements. A tone suitable for a ‘new Queen’.  

Lilac. Delicate and slightly exotic, named after the eponymous Persian flower. It takes shape in the dress by Oscar de la Renta, it is combined with silver at Roberto Cavalli and embellishes a romantic tutu dress by Tadashi Shoji.    

Electric blue. Sheer energy that make you want to go on a fun and amazing holiday. It’s the color of the pop dress by Jeremy Scott for Moschino, of the minimal-sporty outfit by Hermès and the Chanel ensemble. Maybe Karl Lagerfeld wanted to pay homage to the French flag…    

Navy blue. Another ‘French’ color typically associated to nautical style . Blue stripes on the white Breton shirts worn by Coco Chanel, Picasso, Jeanne Moreau. But navy blue alone adorns sartorial outfits. The new urban uniform for very chic career women.

Sunset hues. The nuances of sunset in the village of Oia in Santorini, Greece, or in Key West, Florida. Warm and enveloping, it oozes energy. A mix of hues suitable for a strong and positive spirit and will surely make you stand out in the crowd. Sunset hues were spotted at Prabal Gurung, Carven and Prada. Try them!  

Scarlet red. The color of flames and passion. For statement evening dresses: sequins and voile at Lanvin, draping and flounces at Yohji Yamamoto, enveloping velvet at Acne Studios.

"This store has a very pleasant environment and Jeff and Janet are both kind, wonderful people. I used Jeff a few times for appraisals and he was very thorough and was happy to answer lots of questions. He uses scientific methods and tests rather than going solely by appearance as some jewelers will try to do, and his expertise is well respected. On one occasion, he even went out of his way to help expedite a deal for me. He has my highest recommendation. Suzanne T., San Rafael, CA

“Jeff is an incredible gemologist who knows everything there is to know about gem stones. He is a true professional and can be trusted. The quality of their work is impeccible and always consistent.

Delicate and perfectly crafted. Packing was very secure and shipping was quick. I would not hesitate to purchase from Deleuse again! Michele, New Jersey

“Janet and Jeff designed and crafted our wedding rings and did a great job. They worked with existing diamonds we had in an antique ruby cocktail ring, added the sapphire stone and made a beautiful pendant with the ruby. In addition, they designed earrings for our daughters. All are still in great shape today. They are easy to work with and very reliable and trustworthy.” Peg M., San Anselmo
