Jewelry and Pantone’s Colors of the Year 2021

Jewelry is one of the few things that can follow the trends and still be timeless enough to pass down through generations. This year, you can stay on trend in the jewelry world by wearing Pantone’s colors of the year 2021 – Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (yellow).

This color pairing is interesting, yet fitting, for coming out of 2020. People have been feeling a bit of gray in the world, but are hopeful for a bright and sunny future. According to Pantone, this union is “practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic. This is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.”

Pantone’s Perfect Pieces

Now that you are ready to embrace the hopefulness of 2021, how do you show off that bright future through your jewelry wardrobe?

Look for gemstones such as:

  • Lemon quartz
  • Yellow sapphire
  • Yellow diamond

Consider one of these sunshiny sparklers in a bold design like a vintage-inspired ring or a tennis bracelet. It will pop perfectly with your favorite little black dress. Or be brave and pair with red, green or blue to really showcase the bright yellow.

Incorporate Ultimate Gray by choosing platinum or white gold as the right metal match for your yellow gems.

The mixing of deep thoughtfulness with happiness and hope is what the world needs right now. Once you are ready to embrace these ideas for 2021 and wear your optimism for all to see, be sure your gems are properly protected. Contact Lavalier for your personalized jewelry insurance quote.
