Pantone's Colors of 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating!

For 2021, Pantone has released their colors of the year!

PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + 13-0647 Illuminating! 


This paring is uplifting and clean. The Light and air represented here may bring the fresh start and breathing room we all need after last year. 


As stated on Pantone's site: "Emboldening the spirit, the pairing of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 highlights our innate need to be seen, to be visible, to be recognized, to have our voices heard. A combination of color whose ties to insight, innovation and intuition, and respect for wisdom, experience, and intelligence inspires regeneration, pressing us forward toward new ways of thinking and concepts."

Gemstones in these colors....

- For the yellows, Sapphire, Citrine, South Sea Pearl, Topaz, Diamond, Zircon, Amber, Sillimanite, Beryl, Apatite, Fluorite, Tourmaline, Quartz.... I could go on and on! Set those in some silver and you have a reflection of both of this year's colors. 

- For the Gray - Moonstone, Spinel, Pearl, Diamonds, Agate, Labradorite, and Tourmaline.... set them in gold and, voila! Again, this year represented in jewelry!    


I am excited about these new colors, and can't wait to see how they incorporate into our lifestyles for the coming year! Here at Firefly, I welcome the Light, but I guess you already knew that, Fireflies.... ;-)    *


Have a great year full of color and Light, Fireflies! 

With love,
