Jewellery designers are going green, making us fall hard for fresh and uplifting stones like peridots, emeralds and tourmalines.
After global colour expert Pantone crowned “Greenery,” also known as Pantone 15-0343, as this year’s colour, it isn’t a surprise to see it popping up in fashion, beauty, décor, and indeed, jewellery. It seems the recent trend of nature-inspired jewellery is here to stay for a while.

Described as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore and renew,” “Greenery” is the perfect revitalising colour to take us into 2017. As well as signalling vitality, regeneration and energy, it is also an ode to the growing interest in protecting nature.

For jewellery lovers, peridot is the perfect match to the vibrant, fresh and energetic colour. The apple green brightness of this gem, which is usually paired with other bright ones like aquamarine, amethyst, pink tourmaline and citrine, is a perfect expression of “Greenery.” Coming at an affordable price, it’s also an ideal choice for fashion jewellery.

However, Pantone have confirmed all shades of green will take centre stage in 2017, so emeralds, demantoid garnets, tourmalines, tsavorites and jade can all provide inspiration for your green jewellery palette. The versatile colour pairs well with white, yellow and rose gold. Plus, green is described as “nature’s neutral,” by Pantone, meaning it’s easy to include it with any outfit.
