Take a jewelry journey through the past 14 years of Pantone’s Color of the Year.

Lifestyle movements suggest that consumers will be seeking inner peace and spiritual fulfillment in the new millennium. This is a paradoxical time in which we are heading toward an uncertain, yet exciting, future and also looking back, trying to hold on to the security of the past. In this stressful, high-tech era, we will be searching for solace and Cerulean Blue produces the perfect calming effect.”
—Pantone press release, 1999
