Embrace Marsala, Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, With Jewelry

It's a new year and now a new color trend from Pantone -- Marsala!  Named Color of the Year for 2015 by the Pantone Color Institute, the New Jersey-based company modeled this hue after the historic Sicilian wine.  As the authority on color and matching and defining color for the print, cosmetic, design, and other manufacturing industries, this company also sets the color trends for these industries to follow.  From couture wear to yarn colors, you will see more and more products made with Marsala's rich hues throughout the year.  Incorporate Marsala into your wardrobe and learn what jewelry complements this full-bodied color.

Why Marsala?

Last year, Radiant Orchid was the color of the year, reflecting a time that evoked imagination, expression, and invigorating warmth.  As we moved into 2015, this year is a time for enrichment, hearty nourishment, and alluring warmth.  Pantone 18-1438 beautifully captures these elements that fulfill our souls and embraces others  in a singular hue and promises to be a perfect foil for 2015's latest color choices. Marsala is a highly individualistic and complementary color for any use or appearance that imbues fashion, soft goods, home products, and makeup with both warmth and sophistication.

More on about Marsala: Vintners in Marsala, Sicily developed the fortified Marsala wine centuries ago. By adding additional alcohol to the wines, Marsala ensured that sailors would have safer drinking water to last on long voyages. Pantone's Marsala color refers to the ruby variety, the Rubino, a rich, red variety that many chefs prize.

Regarding Jewelry

Using Marsala as a backdrop, jewelry, particularly metals such as gold, silver, and copper, emit more intense lusters, and depending on your choice of accessorizes can emphasize certain aspects of this color. 

  • Intensity and Seduction: Accessorize with yellow gold jewelry, especially 18K gold, and/or bright red accessories.  The yellow and red hues, warmth, and brightness increase the strong, warm elements of Marsala.  However, minimally accessorize with these accent colors, or your wardrobe can be too strong and rather create a repelling effect instead.

  • Elegance and Style: Complement Marsala's warmth and nourishing qualities with cool-toned metal jewelry, such as white gold and sterling silver, and bright blue, green, and purple gemstones, such as blue topaz, peridot, and tanzanite.  These colors create a balanced harmony that evokes style and grace.

  • Refinement and Earthiness: Exude a grounded sophistication by pairing Marsala with brown, olive, cream, and other subdued warm tones.  These hues bring out the earthiness of the Color of the Year 2015.

For 2015, find ways to enrich your soul and savor what this year has to offer with the color, Marsala, in mind. You’ll see many types of clothing, upholstery, and household goods integrating this color in 2015. Enjoy using a new color in your own fashion style by accentuating the different elements of Marsala with yellow gold, white gold, and colored gemstone jewelry.
