Fall 2013 Color Forecast

With the summer days winding down, we’re looking forward to upcoming fashion and color trends and how they interplay with jewelry design in the new season. Earlier this year, global color authority Pantone identified 10 prominent hues for Fall 2013. The organization gathers insight by surveying designers of New York Fashion Week and beyond to preview the season’s upcoming color trends.

“Just as the leaves change in autumn, the consumer will enjoy the ability to change their ‘look’ and try a new approach to their wardrobe for brisk days ahead,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute Executive Director. “The fall 2013 palette allows for that versatility and experimentation” she added.

The top 10 color trend predictions released in the PANTONE® Fashion Color Report Fall 2013 include Emerald(also ‘Color of the Year’), Mykonos Blue, Linden Green, Acai, Samba, Koi, Deep Lichen Green, Vivacious, Turbulence and Carafe. With our eye for on-trend jewelry designs, we’ve curated a collection of gemstone jewels reflecting their findings:

 

Emerald – the Pantone 2013 Color of the Year continues to sparkle into autumn.Pantone Emerald 17-5641 Color of the Year

Mykonos Blue – the tanzanite gemstone best represents this bold and classic blue. This hue pairs well with Emerald or Linden Green.Pantone Mykonos Blue 18-4434
Linden Green – accessorizing with this yellow-toned hue will brighten any of fall’s deeper shades. Evoke this color with green amethyst paired against yellow gold.Pantone Linden Green 15-0533

Samba – for an expressive and dramatic jewelry accessory, turn to spirited gemstones such as red agate.Pantone Samba 19-1662

Deep Lichen Green – capture both ends of the seasonal spectrum with tahitian black peacock green pearls.Pantone Deep Lichen Green 18-0312
