This classic hue plays well with nearly every color on the spectrum. So, as your customers may lean toward traditional styles in 2020, use the color pairings below to meet their desire for Classic Blue jewelry trends.

Take a look at Pantone’s color pairings and the jewelry trends to expect this year.

Classic Blue Trend 01: Ponder

Classic Blue is featured in a thoughtful and meditative palette in Ponder. Here, all metal qualities can shine under the hues of Sapphire, Iolite, and Tanzanite. Classic Blue helps induce a gently calming effect and feelings of peaceful tranquility to the human spirit. Pair stones with subtle hues like Citrine, Turquoise, Honey Topaz, Grey Spinel, or Sky Blue Topaz.
