Pantone are the self styled ‘global authority on color’ and their announcements are taken seriously in the fashion marketplace. The colours of the year for 2016 (there are two of them this year) are rose quartz and serenity. These are likely to be well represented in fashion so having jewellery that goes (whether to wear yourself or to sell) will ensure you’re ahead of the trend.
The fashion and interiors industry take the Pantone colour of the year seriously so it is worth being aware of what their research has shown will be key trends in colour this year. Last year saw marsala, a deep red wine colour. This year, two colours have been chosen of a more pastel hue - rose quartz and serenity.
Jewellers will be well aware of the colour of rose quartz but what is serenity? Serenity is described as a cool, tranquil blue - think aquamarine or blue chalcedony.
