Exploring The Pantone Colour Of The Year

The Pantone colour of the year 2022 has recently been announced. “Very Peri” is a brand new violet-blue colour described as “courageous, inventive and creative”. Displaying carefree confidence and a daring curiosity, this striking colour helps us to embrace changing landscapes and opens us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives.

Taking over last year’s ‘Illuminating Yellow’ and ‘Ultimate Grey’, the new shade consists of a vibrant shade of periwinkle blue with energising violet-red undertones. Speaking of their new choice of colour, executive director, Lee Eiseman, and vice president, Laurie Pressman of the Pantone Institue, said: 

It embodies a courageous presence and encourages personal inventiveness and creativity, and if there was ever a time historically where we need that—we need that encouragement, we need that uplift. It helps us to embrace the future, the possibilities, as we rewrite our lives.

Very Peri Inspired Gemstone Jewellery

Tanzanite

Boasting almost identical bluey-violet tones to Pantone’s Very Peri, tanzanite is valued for its rarity and captivating colour. Found exclusively in northern Tanzania, the region is protected with regulated mining, allowing the local community to benefit from its production.

First discovered in 1967, this relatively new gemstone has already gained popularity amongst the elite with both Beyonce and Kate Middleton favouring this jewel as part of their everyday ensemble. Best worn with soft pastels or neutral tones, make tanzanite your go-to choice this season and indulge in its intense violet hues all day long.

Amethyst

Best known for its popular purple hues, amethyst has been used in personal adornment for over 2000 years. A royal gem that once ended up in many country’s Crown Jewels, is now readily available thanks to large deposits discovered in South America.

Displaying more vibrancy than tanzanite, amethyst’s colour features a faint lavender centre fringed with dark purple. Offering versatility thanks to its combination of warm and cold tones, this gem can be perfectly matched with any colour. The alluring purple is beautifully complemented in both gold and white gold jewellery settings and stands out strongest when worn against neutral tones.
