They’re here! The Pantone colors for 2016 and I must say they are a much softer take than the last couple of years. The two colors – Rose Quartz and Serenity are a blending of the two shades. Both seem to be an antidote to modern day stresses and general well being. Both are welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security.
Here is what Pantone had to say about them. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
As you know, the effects of the Pantone color choices every year are far reaching. The choices extend into every aspect of our consumer market. You will start to see them showing up everywhere, particularly in the fashion world. Jewelry is no exception.
