In case you hadn't heard on the grapevine, according to renowned authority on colour Pantone®, 2014's colour of the year is Radiant Orchid. A vibrant purple with pink undertones, Radiant Orchid is forecast as THE colour of 2014…
Each year Pantone® selects a colour of the year, to capture the mood across all areas of design.
Seeking inspiration across the globe to find colour influences, Pantone® tends to look at colours pervading the creative sectors such as film, art and the entertainment industry.
This year Radiant Orchid revealed itself to be colour of the year, a shade that lends itself unbelievably well to jewellery, and to gemstones in particular. Think amethyst, morganite, pink diamond, padparadscha sapphire, rhodonite… who knew there were so many gems with this colour spectrum?
And what better way to buy into this year's hottest colour than with gems? For those who don't fancy going all out – perhaps you aren't a fan of bright colours in clothing, you prefer minimalist decor in your home and you really would just rather a chic French manicure – jewellery is the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your life.
