Greenery: Pantone Color of the Year for 2017

By Moin Khan @moindpfoc

The Pantone Color Institute in early December chose the 2017 Color of the Year – Greenery. This fresh and zesty yellow-green shade beautifully illustrates nature’s lushness. It signifies new beginnings and radiates the charm of the first days of spring. The shade immediately evokes a feeling of rejuvenation and restoration.


Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute stated, “While Serenity and Rose Quartz, the Pantone Colors of the Year 2016, expressed the need for harmony in a chaotic world, Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize and unite, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”

For jewelry lovers, the gemstone that easily matches the description of Greenery is none other than peridot. The peridot’s vivid green with a hint of yellow will beautifully blend with all the outfits in your wardrobe. Considered as the stone for the month of August, this alluring gem is believed to bring in good luck and attract wealth. This stunning gem looks the best when paired with breezy pastels and contrasting blacks and whites.

Another gem that resembles the shade Greenery is the very popular and coveted emerald. Although exhibiting a slightly more intense and vivid green, emeralds are perfect for refreshing your jewelry wardrobe. Remember Angelina Jolie’s emerald drop earrings at the 2009 Oscars? Elegant, classy and an absolute stunner; those baubles caught the world’s attention pretty much in an instant. That’s the magic of emeralds. Team it up with the right outfit and there’s a good chance you too will make a style statement. You can easily incorporate the beauty of green gems in your wardrobe with the following jewelry styles.

Peridot Solitaire Pendant


If versatility is what you’re looking for then choose a peridot solitaire pendant. It can transition from looking understated and pretty in a shirt to being absolutely eye-catching in an off-shoulder dress. Whatever your outfit, this one will match your mood effortlessly.

Peridot Drop Earrings


Any upscale wardrobe needs some statement jewelry to complete a dazzling ensemble. And a stunning pair of peridot drop earrings is a great option to take your everyday casual appearance to upscale chic in seconds.

Emerald & Diamond Ring


There are some pieces of jewelry you just can’t go wrong with and a combination of emerald and diamonds promises you just that! Opt for a vintage design if you love elegance with just the right bit of flamboyance.

Emerald Tennis Bracelet


There is something timeless about the sophistication of a tennis bracelet. Add to that the glimmer of emeralds and you’ve got yourself a winner! This particular style is perfect for an evening out, but do wear it anytime you want to grab attention without saying a word.
