2013 Color of the Year: Emerald

Emerald and Diamond EarringsI saw on the news today the 2013 color of the year is Pantone color 17-5641, also known as Emerald. I guess now we can say goodbye to Tangerine Tango from 2012.

Now I don’t expect all of you to change your bathroom and kitchen accessories to the new emerald color (do people actually do that every year?), but I can offer a simple suggestion on how to become more trendy this year! Buy some emerald jewelry to coordinate with your wardrobe.

I was never a big fan of green personally until I bought my first piece of jewelry with Chatham emeralds. I didn’t know such beautiful emeralds could be so affordable. Now I own lots of emerald pieces and wear them regularly. So I guess for me, I’ll have to buy more than my green Christmas sweater to be trendy this year.

I wish you all a very blessed 2013!
