After the challenges everyone has been through in 2020, Pantone is bringing color and cheer to 2021 with their Color of the Year. Meet Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, two perfectly matched colors to usher in 2021.

Ultimate Gray captures a resilient, timeless color palette. Gray is wearable at any time of year, and the silvery tones of sterling silver, white gold, and platinum are excellent metal choices for jewelry.


Gray spinel and Swarovski’s ever-sparkling gray crystals will also do the trick of capturing Pantone’s 2021 Color of the Year in a stylish, wearable way.



Illuminating is a bright, vivacious yellow that creates an optimistic and uplifting energy. In contrast to gray metals, yellow gold makes a bold statement, and pretty yellow gemstones are attractively set in yellow gold.



Looking to pair both Colors of the Year? Reach for yellow diamonds in white gold, yellow sapphires and diamonds, or citrines set in sterling silver.




May 2021 bring you peace, happiness, and health.


Until next time,
