To be rich in color or to vibrant, strong and deeply saturated with color. Orange is an intense and vivid color associated in the Elizabethan Era as a status of wealth. Enforced by the Sumptuary Laws that only the rich or the affluent upper class were allowed to wear the color orange. Very costly at the time to dye any fabrics but especially the color orange as it was a combination of colors and technique to achieve the brilliant, rich and dramatic color orange.
