Pantone's Color of the Year is Living Coral - a spirited shade of coral with a golden undertone.
Here are a few of the peachy-colored gemstones you'll see featured in jewelry this year.
Coral, particularly antique coral with its soft peachy-pink hue, is the ideal Living Coral gemstone in both color and meaning. Coral symbolizes peace and transformation. It is believed to protect your from negativity and evil influences. Most of the coral used in jewelry, including what I use in my designs, does not come from endangered coral reefs.
Morganite is the peachy-pink member of the Beryl family whose other members are emerald and aquamarine. Morganite is believed to help release unhealthy emotional patterns, aid in developing trust and bring a sense of joy and inner strength.
Peach Moonstone is a member of the Feldspar family. This beautiful peachy stone has a soft almost magical shimmer. It is said to soothe stress and stabilize the emotions.
In addition to gemstones, crystal, glass and cubic zirconia beads will abound in this spirited color. So, regardless of your budget, you'll be able to find just the right piece of jewelry in the 2019 Color of the Year - Living Coral.
