The global authority on color, Pantone, declared that the fashion hue for 2014 is Radiant Orchid – “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones.”

Variations of this beautiful purple are already showing up in runway lineups from some of the world’s top fashion designers. 

Never to be caught behind the fashion curve, Carol Barrett Jewelry is preparing to release a new line of stunning one-of-a-kind jewelry featuring lavender jade pieces, amethyst and other eye-catching purple stones and quality glass beads.

A splash of Radiant Orchid

The fashion magazines are highlighting this delightful purple as an accent color. It will be particularly popular in makeups, home décor and ready-to-wear fashion. But it will primarily be used as an accent color to brighten some more serious chocolate and tan colors.

Because this happy, confident color is likely to be most fashionable in splashes, purple jewelry should be fiercely popular in 2014.   

Radiant Orchid jewelry

Pantone knows color and didn’t name this fashion trend “radiant” for grins. It will bring a vibrancy and exuberance to the fashion world that should be a lot of fun.

Incorporating a Radiant Orchid necklace into your jewelry collection and wardrobe could give you just the splash of this gorgeous color you need.

Quality purple jewelry

As beautiful as the Radiant Orchid color is, purple has a certain youthfulness to it that can make jewelry pieces seem unsophisticated if they’re not crafted properly. That’s why the fashion savvy will have to be vigilant about quality.

Steer clear of cheap purple beads and opt instead for one-of-a-kind Radiant Orchid jewelry that makes a fashion statement independent of the Pantone color of the year.

Carol Barrett Jewelry uses high quality amethyst stones, hand-blown glass beads and and rare lavender jade pieces, often featuring authentic and intricate Asian carvings. Barrett’s jewelry makes a statement and gets noticed.

While Carol Barret Jewelry’s collection of Radiant Orchid necklaces, pendants, bracelets and earrings is perfect for Pantone’s color of the year selection, it’s also timeless.
