Just last month, Pantone announced the 2019 Color of the Year — Living Coral. This exciting and playful hue mirrors nature’s liveliness and optimism. And much like coral itself, which thrives amid a rich and colorful ecosystem, Pantone’s Living Coral plays extraordinarily well with nearly every color on the spectrum. The orangey-pink shade can act as the center of attention, or it can support a palette of equally bright colors.
So, in your pledge to sell more color in 2019, use the color pairings below to mix and match colorful gemstones with Pantone’s Living Coral.
