Earlier in the month, we shared how you can plan your watch wardrobe around Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018, Ultra Violet, in Welcome to 2018: It’s a Great Time to Start Planning Your Watch Wardrobe. This might have left some of you asking “well, what about ultra violet rings, necklaces, or bracelets?” We won’t leave you in suspense any longer! Here are our top ultra violet jewelry picks.
Top of our list is the Anne Sportun amethyst beaded wrap bracelet. This bracelet truly captures the inventive and imaginative nature of ultra violet as it can also be worn as a long necklace or a double wrapped short necklace. It stacks flawlessly with other beaded wrap bracelets, provides endless layering options with your go-to necklaces, and stylish accents with your latest timepiece in your watch collection.
It should never come as a surprise to have a sparkling ring on any list of ours. You could even work with our jewelry experts and master jewelry designer to repurpose an old ring. According to the Pantone Color Institue, “Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.” With a highly skilled team in our jewelry shop right here in-store, the possibilities are endless when it comes to custom creating the perfect ultra violet ring from our artisans’ hands to yours.
If your staple look is a darling little necklace, any of these ultra violet necklaces are sure to add vibrancy to your collection. Don’t be afraid to surround yourself with this visionary color. It’s found in the cosmos with swirling purple nebulae, the wellness movement–hello amethyst crystals, and it was clearly architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s favorite color as he would wear a purple cape when he was trying to be creative. Oh, and we can’t forget about Prince making it an iconic color himself (purple rain will now be stuck in your head the rest of the day, you’re welcome).
Ok, so we couldn’t leave watches off the list. Afterall, we do have the largest selection in the Midwest. This Patek Philippe Calatrava is the first to come to mind for obvious reasons. If the shiny alligator strap sporting the color of the year isn’t enough, this timepiece is 18K rose gold with a two-row diamond bezel! The silvery grained dial also has gold applied numerals for an added level of class and sophistication. You’ll be begging people to ask you what time it is so that you can show off your new ultra violet watch.
The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean be so much more than a compass for what’s trending in the fashion and jewelry world. Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, deeply believes it provided a reflection of what’s needed in our world today. Typically the Color of the Year is reflective of the past year. We are excited to embrace a color that has us looking forward to what the future brings. Visit either of our locations: across from Keystone at the Crossing in the Fashion Mall Commons (3535 E 86th St.) or in Greenwood at US 31 & Fry Rd. to shop all our ultra violet jewelry and timepieces.
