Color Report 3 of 10: 5 Jewels to Color-Block With Pantone’s Hemlock

The Pantone Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report serves as an overview of designers’ color choices in new clothing collections. The colors are important for jewelers to know so they can help customers successfully color-block accessories. Here are five ways to color-block with Pantone’s Hemlock.

Panton's Hemlock color

PANTONE 15-6114 Hemlock

This minty green, like Violet Tulip, will complement other sherbet shades and break up busy prints. The soft hue can also serve as a neutral to bolder colors.

1. Pair Hemlock with complementary colors in the red to pink family.
