Introducing the 2022 Color of the Year: Very Peri Jewelry

12/01/2022 | Mira Alicki

Feelings of hope and innovation are represented in a new color as the world looks for a fresh start.

Welcome to a new year full of creative possibilities! Last month, we eagerly awaited an announcement from the Pantone® Color Institute detailing this year’s Color of the Year.

Pantone’s Color of the Year involves a broad range of experts searching the world for color influences. The colors that Pantone selects influence development and purchasing decisions made in several industries, including fashion, furnishings, and, of course, jewelry.

At Mira Jewelry Design, we annually look to Pantone’s Color of the Year for inspiration. With our vast selection of colorful and vibrant gemstones, knowing options and color pairings can make crafting your next custom piece a breeze.

2022 Color of the Year: Very Peri

This year’s Color of the Year is a new color known as Very Peri — a color whose “courageous presence encourages personal inventiveness and creativity,” says the Pantone Color Institute.

"This new shade of purple was created with the faithfulness and consistency of blue and the energy and excitement of red. The result was a hue that conveys innovation and a fresh start".

Coming from a year of unprecedented change throughout the world, Pantone wanted to provide a color that reflected the optimism and hope for the future.

“Ultimately, this new shade — and even the act of creating it — is meant to represent what many are hoping for in 2022: a fresh start for a world that knows that old systems and habits can no longer stand up to the challenges of today, let alone the days to come,” says Pantone.

Design your Very Peri Statement Jewelry Piece

Within this cool and soft tone are several different gemstones that are perfect for custom pieces. Gemstones that exhibit soft or vibrant blues, lilac, lavender, and purples give off the same excitement and refreshed feelings many are looking for in this new year.

Our top options in gemstones fitting Very Peri include Tanzanite, faceted and cabochon Fancy Sapphire, faceted and cabochon Moonstone, Chalcedony, Iolite, Lavender Cubic Zirconium, and Blue Moissanite.
