Pantone, the unrivaled expert on color and color technology, announced for the first time ever, two colors will be the Colors of the Year for 2016. Every year, the Pantone Color Institute reveals its predicted Color of the Year. This prophecy strongly influences the upcoming year in design. The hues, Rose Quartz and Serenity, should start to appear in home furnishings, fashion collections, and most importantly jewelry design. These pastel hues have already made an appearance in several of Knox Jewelers’ recent custom ring creations.
Pantone Color Institute’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, had this to say about the decision, “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” 
Rose Quartz is described as an alluring and gentle color that expresses both compassion and a sense of composure. On the other hand its compliment, Serenity, conjures feelings of weightlessness and relaxation. Both the pale pink and pale blue hues can be found in several gemstone options. Any of the gemstones featured below can be set in your one-of-a-kind creations! Fancy colored sapphire can be found in both a soft pink and blue hue, and is the only gemstone featured below that we recommend for use in engagement rings.
Pink Tourmaline – Rose Quartz
Chalcedony – Aquamarine
