Posted by on Dec 10, 2013 in Gem Trends, How To | No Comments

Given how much we love a pop of color here at Gemvara, we’re always very excited when the ultimate color authority, Pantone, announces their Color of the Year.  2013 was the year of emerald, and it was embraced everywhere from the red carpet to the stunning rings adorning Gemvara customers’ hands.

Pantone has announced that the 2014 Color of the Year is… Radiant Orchid!  Pantone describes this beautiful color as “a captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones.”  In a press release, Pantone explains this color choice is meant to “intrigue the eye and spark the imagination.”  Well, we’re definitely intrigued by this gorgeous shade of purple and inspired to create in this lovely hue.

We’re sure Radiant Orchid will be seen everywhere from fashion, to home decor, and of course in jewelry. Here are some ways to get inspired by Radiant Orchid and incorporate the color into your custom-made fine jewelry from Gemvara.

Radiant Orchid - Flamenco Ring

The unique design of the Flamenco Ring reminds us of the unique shape of an orchid. Customizing the ring in rhodolite garnet, pink sapphire, and amethyst brings the orchid inspiration to life in a vibrant, jaw-dropping ring.  If you’re looking to embrace Pantone’s Color of the Year, create a piece of jewelry using the many shades of pink and purple we have to create something exquisite.

Radiant Orchid - Faye Ring

In a classic diamond solitaire ring, you can still add a pop of color and use unique inspiration to make the ring uniquely yours.  We took the inspiration of Radiant Orchid to create a band of alternating diamond and amethyst.

Radiant Orchid - Brilliant Infinity Twist Band

Using the pink hues that create Radiant Orchid, we customized the Brilliant Infinity Twist Loop in dazzling pink sapphire.  This gemstone is a gorgeous shade of pink, capturing the same energy and vibrancy of Pantone’s Color of the Year.  For a subtler shade of pink, try customizing in pink tourmaline for a softer look.

Radiant Orchid - Brilliant Jessamine Ring

Fully embracing the beauty of purple, an amethyst is a bold shade of eye-catching fuchsia.  Pairing amethyst with other purple gemstones, like iolite, creates a striking piece of jewelry.
