Discover the Colors of the Year for 2021

Yellow and Gray Bead Colors

Pantone releases their Color of the Year every year to inspire global fashion, jewelry, home decor, and overall style trends. For 2021, we have not just one but TWO colors of the year. Pantone's Colors of the Year for 2021 are Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. After the year of 2020, we deserve two inspiring colors! The yellow color is a hopeful and fresh start for the year, while the gray offers a solid and strong support to that bright pop. To get you even more inspired, we're sharing jewelry designs from our Design Studio featuring these on-trend colors. Plus, we have an exciting giveaway inspired by these colors.
