Ultra Violet, Pantone’s Color of The Year for 2018, a color associated with the counter-culture of the ‘60s and pop culture of the ‘80s, evokes originality, artistry and symbolism. Spiritually, it is a color connected to the third eye chakra, representing intuition and wisdom. In the jewelry world, amethyst and shades of purple sapphires are perfect to express designers’ awareness of the cultural associations relevant today as well as their own ingenuity and creativity. Let purple reign!
