Welcome in 2017 and the New Color of the Year, Greenery!

Greenery

As 2016 rolls out and 2017 makes its’ way in, it’s time to say goodbye to last year’s colors of the year – Rose Quartz and Serenity. Pantone made a
Quote about Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year from their Websiteground-breaking decision last year by choosing two colors instead of just one for their iconic color of the year slot, but as all good things must come to an end, so must last year’s trend.

This year we are welcoming in “Greenery.” Greenery is the perfect symbolism for a promising new year, as it is meant to evoke feelings of springtime, renewal and freshness. It’s no secret that 2016 was a rough year for a lot of people, so the vitality, passion, and affirmations that Greenery symbolizes can be seen as a reflection of what we all are hoping for out of the new year.

The bold, bright yellow-green tone is a refreshing change from the serene, pastel colors of last year. Even better, Greenery itself seems to go with just about everything. Wear it as a bright, earthy addition to your neutrals or deeper shades. It’s even just light enough to be a daring compliment to pastels.

Our favorite Greenery pairing? Idocrase – a rare volcanic mineral very similar to Jadeite and Nephrite jades, but in a lighter chartreuse to lime green color range.

Bold Color Choices From Pantone for 2016!

For the first time ever, Pantone has announced not one but two colors of the year! Rose Quartz and Serenity, chosen for their gentle, soft nature, are meant to be paired together. Pantone says the color choice challenges traditional perceptions of color association.

Inspired by society’s change towards gender equality and the younger generation’s boldness and tendency to be less concerned about stereotypes and judgement, this duo is a bold choice.

While Rose Quartz is meant to instill a sense of compassion, warmth, and composure, Serenity adds balance with it’s cooler, peaceful tone.

How to wear it?

Together, of course! Try a Rose Quartz top with one of our blue quartz and pearl necklaces with white gold to add a splash of sparkle.
