The year may be half over, but there’s still plenty of time to incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year into your jewelry assortment.

From clothing to home décor to jewelry and accessories, ultra violet can be found everywhere—and now you can get the most stunning ultra violet jewelry to fit every personality.
The most obvious gemstone to resemble the color of the year is amethyst. This stone has long been revered for its powerful healing and protective properties, along with its gorgeous lavender to violet color.

Another gem that targets the ultra violet shade is ruby.

Despite being a “true” purple hue, this gem is still in line with the purple trend due to its proximity on the color wheel. Rubies also pair well with other gems, including amethyst, to get a blend of shades. Check out these gorgeous ruby and topaz drop earrings—the colors fusing together to give a purple vibe.
