GalleriaDiGiani has created a beautiful and versatile Orange and White Agate with Carnelian Necklace and Earring Set. According to Giani, the wonderful shades in these stones bring to mind orange creamsicles, and have a "fun, flirty and sassy" appeal to them.

Make a bold yet beautiful statement at work with Gilliauna's Beaded Badge Lanyard - Orange Crush. Oranges, golds and black come together in this lovely accessory.
