True Color Thursday Celebrates Cerise!

The color for this True Color Thursday is one I had never heard of before, so first I had to define the color: Cerise.

ce-rise n.  A deep to vivid purplish red.

[French, from Old French, cherry; see cherry.]

cerise – of a color at the end of the color spectrum (next to orange); resembling the color of blood or cherries or tomatoes or rubies

cerise – a red the color of ripe cherries   

There are many Shades Of Pink, just click on the link and you will see an array.

And upon definition of the color all my notions about today’s blog went down the drain.  It is a purplish cherry red, and at least for me, much harder to find.

Here is a pair of Cerise earrings:
