Pantone’s Picks: Feeling Blue And In the Pink

As Pantone released the news of its 2016 Colors of the Year, I think I heard the Internet heave a collective sigh of relief. After suffering through this dark, unappetizing year of Marsala, the gentle duo of Rose Quartz (pale pink) and Serenity (aka periwinkle blue) is the palate cleanser we all need. The combo looks a little like the interior of my local Buy Buy Baby, but the pairing creates “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,” according to the color authority.

It’s possible that news of the Color of the Year won’t mean much to the jewelry selling or consuming crowd. Retailers tell me often that gemstones in easy shades of pink and blue are consistent top sellers. And Pantone doesn’t decree from on high what will be popular so much as digest what’s happening in the zeitgeist. But Pantone’s authority and easily digestible choices might convince color averse shoppers who usually stick with diamonds to take a walk on the wild side with Rose Quartz or Serenity.

Are you excited about the choices for 2016? Think it over. And in the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy a gallery of some incredibly soothing jewels in Rose Quartz and Serenity.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
