New York City, May 20, 2019. Neutral colors like gray and soft blue, green, and pink, will remain in demand for the foreseeable future. American shoppers know that diamonds aren’t the only easy-to-wear gemstone jewelry option. Muted colors of rocks—think gray spinel, different types of garnet, organic-looking agates, moonstones, and mother-of-pearl—can provide a pop of understated hue and subdued brightness that enhance outfits in a gentle whisper of color instead of the scream of vibrant ones like turquoise. Move over, tan—you’re far from the only hushed shade in town. Jewelry’s latest neutrals are as memorable as more vivid counterparts, leave us more fashionably fulfilled than ever before, and will have long-lasting wearability.
