Pantone Announces the 2019 Color of the Year

Pantone always announces the color of the year in December. This year expect to see a lot of Living Coral in fashion, advertising, and all other things related to visual arts. The blue tones you see in the image to the left are the contrasting shades of blue that help the pink tones of this color of the year stand out more, and vice versa.

Each year, the color of the year is selected by Pantone’s color specialists who consider the state of the world and our collective conscious. The color is intended to be symbolic, but something we can relate to on a subconscious level. This is what Pantone says about Living Coral;

“An animating and life-affirming
coral hue with a golden undertone that
energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”
As body piercers we care about Pantone because the fashion industry follows the four seasonal color palletes, established by Pantone, throughout the year. These seasonal colors you see in clothing stores all revolve around the Color of the Year. This means that we need to have plenty of jewelry options in 2019 to help compliment the clothes you’ll likely be wearing. When you visit New Flower this year ask to see the color wheel we keep at the front desk as you look at all your jewelry options.
