As birds chirp, the flowers bloom. Today marks the first day of spring, the seasonal awakening and lively resurgence. After a long, cold winter, welcome brightly colored stones and springtime jewelry back into your showcases. To suggest fashionable choices, we consulted Pantone’s Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report. It sets a varied range of energetic and earthy tones, leaving us inspired and excited.
“One of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling.”
Coordinate your springtime jewelry with these gemstone colors to style up your stock–
Niagara leads as the most prevalent color for spring 2017. This soft denim shade has a calming effect on its admirers. And with blue as the color of self-expression, choose London Blue Topaz to communicate your quiet confidence.
Hazelnut’s balmy organic shade has the creamy neutrality that we adore, especially during spring. Likewise, Smoky Quartz boasts an understated, sophisticated elegance that makes a powerful statement.
Lapis Blue combines the same rich hue and irresistible radiance embodied by the stone for which it is named. Lapis Lazuli offers a vivaciousness that enables wearers to express themselves openly with balance and harmony.
Flame, a fitting title for such a fiery color, bursts with vigor and energy. Its spicy fervor matches that of Mexican Fire Opal. Wear this striking stone to reveal the blaze that burns within.
Like the crystal blue waters of a Caribbean getaway, Island Paradise offers tranquil cyan expression. Blue Zircon’s similar glow releases energy and renewal to those who don the often-overlooked gem.
Another soothing, nature-inspired shade, Pale Dogwood exudes a delicate rosy tone. Morganite captures this hue, complementing all complexions and reflecting life’s happier aspects.
Much like the spirit of springtime, Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery communicates freshness and energy. Look for this enchanting apple green in Peridot, the perfect complement to lively, trending fashions.
Pink Yarrow pops with bright, playful allure. Together with Pink Tourmaline, it expresses timeless feminine charm with a decidedly modern edge. Besides, no one can resist a woman wearing pink.
Like the warmth of springtime sunshine, Primrose Yellow beams with life. Likewise, Yellow Sapphire’s brilliant hue draws the eye, cheerfully shimmering in all its jewelry designs.
Kale takes a backseat in the spring palette as one of the more reserved tones. Lushly reminiscent of deep green foliage, you’ll find Kale’s hue in Nephrite Jade. This stone symbolizes goodness and beauty while representing virtues of wisdom, compassion, and courage.
