Pantone has just announced Living Coral as their 2019 color of the year, and I am all about it!! Coral is such a beautiful color and I am so excited to see more of it this year.

.

Not quite pink, not quite orange – Living Coral finds the perfect balance between those two colors that is somehow energizing and peaceful all at the same time. According to Pantone, Living Coral “embraces us with warmth and nourishment”, “embodies our desire for playful expression”, and reflects the desire for “authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy”.

Personally, coral tones remind me of the beach and that inherently invokes feelings of joy and serenity. Coral also makes me think of the vintage, art-deco style of jewelry when they used to combine coral with gold findings. I’m looking forward to using these inspirations in my jewelry designs this year.

.

Typically the color of the year is seen in clothing, accessories, advertising, home decor, etc., but it’s also a really great idea to mix Living Coral into your handcrafted jewelry. This is an easy way to keep your jewelry designs modern and fresh, and it can be a fun design challenge if it’s not in your normal color palette. So do you have any Living Coral designs in mind yet? Send us pictures of your creations – we love to see what you come up with!
