Move over Orchid Purple, theres a new color in town…
The votes are in and the decision is final, Pantone’s official color of 2015 is the rich, bold and beautiful tone: MARSALA
Named for its resemblance to the Italian wine, Marsala is a robust, deep red with hues of deep earthy brown as an undertone. The color is natural yet strong and attention grabbing and certainly stands out more than it blends in.
Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director, said, “This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
As far as Jewelry goes, Marsala is the color of garnet – the deepest and boldest of rich red stones.
Coincidentally Garnet is also the birthstone for January and our stone of the month! …not to mention a Jewlr favorite.
These are some pieces that look great with a gorgeous Garnet stone:
