Welcome, Ultra Violet! Pantone's Color of the Year for 2018!!
Look out world, here comes this year’s color – a beautiful melding of some colors from years past, Serenity and Rose Quartz have been mixed and the resulting creation is called Ultra Violet!
Pantone says that this year’s color is “A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.
Around these parts, shades of Purple run deep through the veins of Firefly Jewelry Studio. It evokes a feeling of mysticism, of intrigue, and of excitement about deeper journey's into one's self, mind, body and soul. And I can't think of a better color to represent this year of inspiration, connection, healing, and awakening!
Why am I writing about this now? Because February is just around the corner and the celebrated birthstone is Amethyst – a perfect example of 2018’s color of the year in action!
I hope you’ll join me a in a few days to learn about the Amethyst and it’s history!
See you soon!
