Pantone Spring 2014 Top Colors - A Gem Palette!

"This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations."

PANTONE recently unveiled the PANTONE® Fashion Color Report Spring 2014, a comprehensive overview of designers' use of color in their upcoming collections. A color palette that pairs soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium.

I love this color palette! Being a jewelry designer and lover of all colors, I instantaneously connected to gorgeous gemstones these colors reminded me of. Check them out here!
