Capitalization of color names?


I am writing a non-fiction book about a jewelry company. In my description, I have not been capitalizing the colors of the stones or crystals. However, someone who is helping me (who is an expert on these stones) does capitalize the names of the colors.


Any advice?  Is this just a style thing?

Jewellery is popular amongst all age groups and you'd find jewellery in various styles all across the globe. There are plenty of different stores from where you could buy your jewellery and one of the best places to shop is online as you'd get a wide range of options and at the same time discounts as well as home delivery.
