Every season, Pantone releases its fashion colour report, providing a window to what colours will fill our lives from clothing to interior décor to jewellery. For Fall 2013, we continue with the colour of the year, emerald, dominating. Emerald jewellery is as hot as it comes. In addition to this vibrant hue, Mykonos blue (for the jewellery world, that means blue sapphires) will also be popular. The following colours round out the jewel-worthy fall palette: Acai (deep purple gemstones), Turbulence (grey pearls, hematite, grey diamonds), Vivacious (pink tourmaline and light rubies), Carafe (brown diamonds, brown gold, smoky quartz), and Koi (orange sapphires, fire opal, topaz).
