Emerald: The “It” Color for 2013

Ever wonder how a single color begins to show up everywhere during the season? Pantone, the world renowned authority on color picks what the “it” color  is each season and fashion designers work with Pantone to develop the seasons trending pieces. Consumers are left to speculate why a certain color was picked for a given year. Pantone is describing Emerald as, “Lively. Radiant. Lush…A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”

Whether it’s found behind a jewelry counter or found in nature it is easy to appreciate the stability the color brings. Pictured above are my favorite ways to incorporate Pantone’s “it” color from accessories to staples.

The underlining notes in emerald can be complimented by gold with PB&J’s Green Chain Feather Earrings.


Another option is an ode to Mother Nature by our Emerald Isles Wire Earrings.
