As a company, it's safe to say that we are pretty color obsessed. We eagerly await all of Pantone's various color announcements, from seasonal predictions to the grand daddy "Color of the Year" crowning. 2013's title-holder has been announced as Emerald, a beloved hue by just about any one with a soft spot for jewelry. Pantone describes the color:
"Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity."
We love this choice of color to represent 2013 both for its emotional significance and beautiful hue!
