Every year Pantone publishes the color pallet for the seasons and the dominating colors for the year. This year “color of the year” is a little misleading. For the first time Pantone has named two colors – Rose Quartz and Serenity (a soft blue) as the Color of the Year. Both are serene colors contrasting with 2015’s color of the year Marsala (wine color).

Will you add Rose Quartz or Serenity into your wardrobe this year? There are many ways to do this as an accent color or a main color.
For me, I love color, but I tend to wear a lot of black and grays in my wardrobe. This allows me to bring in colors like last year’s Marsala, or this year’s Rose Quartz and Serenity, as accents.
Last year we saw a lot of interesting ways to incorporate garnets into jewelry to bring the Marsala color to light. I imagine we will see an increase in stones like rose quartz, morganite, blue chalcedony and pale blue topaz in designs this year.
Both of these are wonderful stones and they complement silver. Yes, you will be seeing both of these colors showing up in my work this year.
