How To Wear Pantone’s Colour of the Year: Living Coral Jewellery

Each year, Colour Institute Pantone bestows one colour from their many colour swatches with the coveted Colour of the Year title. Once crowned Colour of the Year, the chosen shade becomes a cultural phenomenon, sure to make appearances in all kinds of visual mediums from interiors to fashion and beauty.

We think that jewellery is one of the best ways to showcase the Pantone Colour of the Year as, once the year-long spotlight has faded, you’ll still be left with beautiful jewellery pieces that can be paired with anything in your wardrobe to stunning effect.

Colour of the Year: Living Coral

In 2019, Living Coral is the colour with the Pantone’s Colour of the Year honour. Pantone said “symbolising our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral (officially PANTONE 16-1546) embodies our desire for playful expression.”

The pink-orange tone of Living Coral is vibrant and joyful, able to lift our spirits in an instant. Pantone describes Living Coral as a “sociable and spirited colour that welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity” and we at Eternal Collection believe that there’s no better way to introduce this uplifting and inspiring colour into your life than with Living Coral jewellery.

Living Coral Controversy

There’s a good reason behind why Pantone chose Living Coral as their Colour of the Year. It was recently that half the coral in the Great Barrier Reef has reportedly died in a matter of years, sparking a debate about the usage of precious coral in the jewellery industry in particular. In light of this news, leading jewellery companies such as Tiffany & Co. have refused to sell genuine precious coral jewellery, whereas others have pledged to craft coral jewellery using ethically sourced semi-precious coral.

Here at Eternal Collection, our coral jewellery is made using either ethically sourced dyed semi-precious coral, or other stones dyed coral pink, meaning you can enjoy Living Coral jewellery with a clear conscience.

We have so many beautiful pieces of coral jewellery for you to choose from here at Eternal Collection. Choose from coral necklaces, coral bracelets and coral earrings in our collection, featuring beautiful coral beads and on-trend pieces such as red coral earrings. Some of our coral necklaces can be matched with coral earrings and a coral bracelet, making it easy to create a complete coral jewellery set, or pick and choose individual coral jewellery pieces depending on your desired look.
