Pantone Color of the Year Inspires Topazery Spotlight Jewelry Piece

February 04, 2014

Vintage Amethyst Cocktail Ring

In response to color authority Pantone recently choosing Radiant Orchid as its 2014 Color of the Year, antique jewelry boutique Topazery has selected its February spotlight piece. Throughout the month, the Topazery website will prominently feature a vintage amethyst cocktail ring with a radiant orchid center stone.

Every year, Pantone picks a color shade that it feels will most influence style and decorating trends in the upcoming months. This year, the global color authority has given that honor to Radiant Orchid. Calling the hue "a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple," Pantone justifies its choice by explaining that the shade "encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today's society."

And it just so happens that the amethyst gemstone epitomizes Radiant Orchid, which is described as "an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones [that] inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health," according to the press release announcing its selection as the Color of the Year. Pantone goes on to deem the hue, "a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm."

"Beguiling charm is a perfect descriptor for our February spotlight jewelry piece," explains Topazery's spokesperson. "In addition to its radiant orchid center stone, this vintage amethyst cocktail ring is framed with metallic lacework while contrasting green gold flowers whimsically play peek-a-boo amidst the pierced filigree band." All of this adds up to even more than just its gemstone exuding bewitching captivation.

And if "Elle" magazine's prognostications are on the mark, Topazery's spotlight ring will complement spring's fashion trends nicely. "When it comes to what shades will be on the cutting edge [for Spring 2014], the combination of black and white is proving its staying power, while icy pastels and hints of pink (both hallmarks of Radiant Orchid) are getting into the mix," the publication predicts.

Proving just how much Radiant Orchid is influencing style already this year, last week singer and actress Rita Ora walked the red carpet with a radiant orchid eye shadow shade drawing attention to her eyes. It was just one of the style choices she made at the music awards ceremony that contributed to her being named to many of the night's "Best Dressed" lists.
