Whew! 2020 has come and gone and we have never been happier to see it go. Hopeful and optimism abound and it is evident in the featured colors for this year. On Dec. 9, Pantone announced that its 2021 Colors of the Year are Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, shades chosen for their warmth and dependability. The Pantone news release announcing the colors described Illuminating as “a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power.” Ultimate Gray, like pebbles, is emblematic of “solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation.” The Christian Caine design team is currently creating new collections featuring bright yellow sapphires and lemon yellow citrines. Our newest custom designed engagement rings feature canary yellow fancy diamond centers in vintage motifs of platinum and yellow gold. We are excited about 2021 and featuring these hues in our creations.
