2016's Color of the Year

January 22, 2016 at 9:55 AM

If you haven’t heard, for the first time ever, Pantone has chosen two colors instead of one for it’s 2016 color[s] of the year. Meet Pantone’s Rose Quartz & Serenity!

As we say goodbye to 2015’s Color of the Year Marsala with its robust, earthy wine red hues, excitement is in the air since two is often better that one! For those not familiar with the Pantone Color of the Year, Pantone describes it as, “a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

 According to Beatrice Eisman Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute. “Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, and wellness as a soothing sense of order and peace.” What better way to usher in our hopes for 2016 than with two colors that bring about a mindset of tranquility and peace.

Looking at these two soft yet enchanting colors, our minds race to the beauty of pastel gemstones. Immediately, the subtly of pale blue Chalcedony, Pink Tourmaline and they’re accenting colors comes to mind.


Modern Mixed Color Gemstone Righthand Ring: Chalcedony, RBC Diamonds, Pink Tourmaline, Blue Topaz & Golden Beryl. $1,600.00

This 3.85ct. oval cut sapphire, set in an elegant platinum & diamond Art Deco inspired bezel setting shows the airiness and “Serenity” a sapphire can have.


Modern 3.85ct. Oval Cut Blue Sapphire set in Platinum with.48cttw. of Baguette Cut Diamonds. $7,210.00 

Just as Serenity is a “harmonious pairing” with Rose Quartz, this particularly pale blue oval sapphire elegantly accentuates the Mid Century rose gold setting. 


Mid Century 1.83ct. Oval Cut Cornflower Blue Sappire in 14k Rose Gold. $1,990.00

 Included in Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for spring 2016, eight additional hues will form a palette that are, “Paying homage to the beauty of natural resources.” This silky opal changes color from pale pinks and rose tones to subtle blues and soft cerulean colors. This is all thanks to its natural internal structure, which causes light interference and allows the light to diffract many different tones. 


Mid Century 5.03ct. Oval Cabochon Cut Opal set in 14k Yellow  Gold.  $2,390.00 Available at our new boutique The Black Room located within Martin Patrick3

This cushion cut pink spinel set in a simple modern white gold and diamond setting emanates a soft femininity while maintaining a bold look.


Mid Century 4.00ct. Pink Spinel set in 14k White Gold with .36cttw. of Baguette Cut Diamonds. $4,280.00

 According to Pantone, “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.” This Modern pink sapphire and diamond channel set eternity band contrasts the brilliance and sparkle of the two stones by grouping them into blocks of delicate color.


Mid Century 2.02cttw. Pink Sapphire and Diamond Eternity Band set in 14k White Gold. $1,760.00

 Pantone has also announced that the Color[s] of the Year will work well with other middle tone hues; especially those of the lighter purples and pale greens. Be it Morganite, pale colored Pearls or Aquamarines, it seems like a soft color palette will be hot this spring and summer season.
