Trend Watch: Emerald Green

The color gods at Pantone, the global authority on color, have declared emerald green (PANTONE® 17-5641 to be exact) to be the color of the year for 2013.

 “Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green that any other color in the spectrum, “ said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Symbolically, emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation." A perfect choice for the start of a new year! 




Even before its designation as the “it” color of the year, emerald has been steadily rising for several seasons, especially in the fashion world.

According to Pantone, "The color of the year selection is a very thoughtful process. To arrive at the selection, Pantone quite literally combs the world looking for color influences." 

An abundance of wonderful emerald hued goods can be found on Etsy, so no need to comb the world over to find your emerald treasures!
