04 Jan Pantone Colour of the Year 2017: Greenery
It wouldn’t come as a surprise to any of us that the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2017 is all about nature. And what colour could do more justice to the importance of nature than the colour green! That’s right — the colour of the year for 2017 is greenery. A zesty yellow-green, Greenery is the color of baby leaves, ripening lemons, mangoes and all things fresh and new. The colour greenery, as Pantone says, is symbolic of flourishing foliage, new beginnings and revitalization. For all us urban weary souls, Pantone brings us something to soothe and calm with Greenery, just as it did last year with Rose Quartz and Serenity, but adds a dose of spring and sprightly.
Which brings us to the important part: how does one incorporate this zesty lemon yellow-green palette into their jewellery box? Turns out, they can be found in one very delicate gemstone — peridots. Unlike emeralds, peridots are easily accessible, making them an effortless go-to gemstone for that day-to-night transition. Luckily, for you, we have a wide selection to choose from.
Pair a peridot birthstone pendant with the birthstone ring, a white shirt and crisp trousers for a work meeting or working lunch. The light hint of colour via your jewels is work-appropriate and also keeps it from becoming boring.
Girls Night out
Night on the town with your squad? Slip into a pair of jeans, a grey crop or off shoulder top, finished with our peridot drop earrings and an Art Deco inspired peridot pendant for an evening of revelry. Finish the look with smokey eyes.
Peridots may be accessible and everyday but several style icons have recognised their charm and elegance. Kate Middleton was seen sporting a peridot and blue topaz stud with a grey dress while Hayden Panettiere was spotted sporting these cute danglers to a Disney event.
