Brand Foundation

Blue Nile—

Our brand icon features elements pulled from our wordmark. It is inspired by the purity markings found on rings and adds a level of sophistication to the brand.

The brand palette consists of the core brand colors with supporting colors that allow for depth. Effective and consistent use of color is important to creating brand recognition.
