Pantone Color-Blocking Report 2 of 10: Jewels to Color-Block With Pantone’s Pale Dogwood



The Pantone Spring 2017 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 your peers suggest others color-block with Pantone’s Pale Dogwood.

“Continuing the tranquil mood, Pale Dogwood is a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity. The unobtrusive Pale Dogwood is a subtle pink whose soft touch infuses a healthy glow.” —Pantone

1. Deeper pink hues against Pale Dogwood offer an analogous beauty.

“The Regalo cuff would look great against Pale Dogwood because it’s a calm, warm color that invites a splash of more color. The warmth of rose gold in the Regalo cuff would complement Pale Dogwood garments, and the pink sapphire and tourmalines add a little burst of brightness.” —GiGi Ferranti Jewelry

2. Darker shades will pop against the lightness of Pale Dogwood attire.

“Our Haute Hematite collection goes beautifully with Pale Dogwood because the rose gold frames pick up on the pinkish hues, while the hematite and quartz doublet serves as a stark and stunning contrast against.” —Doves by Doron Paloma

4. High-karat yellow gold will stand out against the backdrop of a Pale Dogwood frock, while a warm-tone stone will enhance the rich-looking duo.
