When the hankering to buy some new handmade jewelry hits you, chances are your brain thinks more in terms of “earrings” or “necklace” than in terms of “violet” or “nectarine.” But choosing jewelry based on color families adds a dash of whimsy to your shopping list and injects a large dose of fashion into even the most monochrome of wardrobes.

When choosing colors for your jewelry, always remember Pantone. What began as a printing company in the 1950s, Pantone now dictates what hues will be hot in the fashion and design industries in each upcoming season. If Pantone says fire engine red is “the one,” you can expect to see it grace everything from dresses to nail polish to throw pillows. Simply adding a few pieces of jewelry from Pantone’s colors of the season list will add modern panache to your look.
