The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year has finally been announced and it is just as radiant and beautiful as we had hoped. This year’s color of the year is...Greenery!
Each year, Pantone, the leading provider of color systems in a variety of industries, chooses one great color to represent what is happening in our world that year. Pantone’s exact definition of the color of the year is “A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” In the last few years, Pantone has debuted lovely shades of soft pink (Rose Quartz), periwinkle blue (Serenity), and other somewhat feminine shades of pinkish red (Marsala & Honeysuckle), purple (Radiant Orchid), deep green (Emerald), and orange (Tangerine Tango). This year’s Pantone Color of the Year, Greenery, goes in a completely new and refreshing direction. Pantone’s Color Intelligence page tells us that this year’s shade is“symbolic of new beginnings” and “evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”We couldn’t agree more. With its zesty hint of yellow, this bright and happy hue makes us want to start our spring cleaning a little early this year. When it comes to jewelry design, we’re inspired by nature. Here at Jewelry by Johan, we take elements from the earth and make beautiful statement pieces andwedding jewelry from it. We believe that the world has beauty to offer to us, and we should show off its beauty through style and accessories. So for us, the announcement of this nature-inspired color of the year was exciting. With the peak wedding season fast approaching, we have no doubt that fresh hues of green will once again take over weddings around the world. From flower arrangements and centerpieces to bridesmaid dresses and wedding jewelry, we expect Greenery to makes its grand debut in every aspect of the wedding world. Whether you pair it with purple, pink, blue, or maroon, Greenery goes with just about any color you can think of. We’ve collected some gorgeous Greenery-inspired wedding elements below.

Or this black Elysium wedding band with a green diamond.
And for the bride, create a completely unique,custom engagement ring like this lotus prong design with a peridot.
