Have you heard the news on the street? That’s right…Pantone has announced its “Color of the Year” for 2019: Living Coral! This beautiful shade is somewhere between red, pink, and orange, and best yet—it’s universally flattering. When it comes to gems, coral isn’t necessarily a color that many think of, but we’re here to tell you that you CAN get the color of the year look even by choosing stones that radiate a similar hue. So for those who are looking to be right on trend in 2019, read on to see how you can incorporate coral jewelry into your everyday looks.
I know what you’re thinking…citrine is yellow, right? Commonly, yes. But citrine can also be found in various hues, including oranges, reds, and even some pink shades. This combination makes it perfect for channeling the coral color you’re after. Look for shades that closely resemble coral, such as these oval drop earrings.
- Peach Morganite
It’s not quite pink, and not quite orange…it’s peach! Don’t you just love this sweet and uplifting color? Perfect for warm toned skin, peach is a great choice that’s very similar to coral. Paired with diamonds, this delicate color gets a very glam boost in these stunning peach earrings or this gorgeous oval peach halo engagement ring.
- Pink + Orange
Two of the most feminine colors—pink and orange—make a lovely coral hue when paired together. So even if you can’t find an exact coral color, try mixing these two within the same piece for an overcast of coral. It’s as simple as a beaded bracelet to give your outfit that extra “pop.”
- Look-alike coral
Gems and beads that are either authentic coral or replicated to look like coral pieces are a great way to dress up a casual outfit. String many together around a necklace or bracelet, or find a chunky pair of earrings for a cool, casual look. Have you ever dreamed of vacationing in the tropics? Wearing coral beads is a timeless summery look that can transport you to a warm destination—even if you’re in a freezing locale.
