For the very first time in the 23-year history of Pantone’s Color of the Year, rather than selecting from their vast treasury of hues, Pantone created a new color from scratch: Very Peri. It is a periwinkle blue with violet-red undertones.
According to Pantone, “as we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how color trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa. Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.”
In addition to gemstones, crystal, glass, and cubic zirconia beads will abound in this beautiful color. Regardless of your budget, you’ll be able to find just the right piece of jewelry in the 2022 Color of the Year – Very Peri.
The Pantone Color Institute, often referred to as simply Pantone, is the global color authority and provider of professional color standards for the design industries. These standards allow the exact same color to be used across a variety of products as diverse as home furnishings, paint, cosmetics, clothing, and linens.
