2016's Color of the Year is: Rose Quartz AND Serenity!
Pantone rocked the design world in December when it announced there would be not one but two shades for its 2016 "Color of the Year." The two colors are Rose Quartz, a girly, pastel pink, and Serenity, a soft blue. These colors will reign supreme this year on catwalks, in floral arrangements, throughout marketing materials, and yes, in jewelry!
According to Pantone's website, the annual Color of the Year is meant to serve as a symbol and express a shared worldwide mood and attitude. Color experts from around the world chose Rose Quartz and Serenity because of the compassionate, calming properties they both possess. Pantone's site states that Rose Quartz is warm and embracing, while Serenity is cool and tranquil, and that, together, the two reflect "connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace."
On that note, while we can only guess at how consumer-oriented industries will introduce Rose Quartz and Serenity into their everyday vernacular, we are excited to announce several trend-friendly pieces that you'll love wearing this year and for years to come!
Pantone suggests pairing Rose Quartz and Serenity for a dose of calm and relaxation. We love this idea and are already looking forward to seeing the ways our customers create striking outfits using both shades but don't feel like both colors have to be worn together. We recommend you have fun playing with the colors on your own and see what works best for you!
We have good news for ladies looking to keep their jewelry collections on-trend throughout 2016: Our latest collection features several handcrafted statement necklaces with color trends in mind - especially Rose Quartz!
Sylvia is wearing one of our new circle pendant statement necklaces that is offered in multiple colorways, but we absolutely adore the feminine yet confident look of this pink version! The cord is adjustable, so it's easy to play with different lengths for any and every outfit. It's lightweight, making it an easy choice to wear alone or with additional necklaces as a simple "pop" of pink. One of our favorite features is that the circle pendant can also be worn as a bangle - talk about versatile!
We especially love the geometric touches on both our Pink Cube Necklace and Pink and Gold Necklace. Beautiful on their own, both of these necklaces can be worn as a single strand with other necklaces for a unique look or doubled for an easy splash of color. If you're a little more daring, you can stay on trend by wearing either of these beautiful handcrafted statement necklaces over a pale blue shirt.
