Carmilla Mini Talon earrings by Katie Rowland. Following the popularity of 2013's Colour of the Year, Emerald, the 2014 Colour of the Year, Radiant Orchid, lends itself well to jewellery design, with brands and designers quick to embrace the purple-pink hue. The colour once again represents a jewel tone, with a pink-purple tone that can be found flowing through shades of tourmaline, ruby, amethyst and in some cases pink sapphire, while leather, crystal, resin and plastic allow for designs that use the colour in their more opaque forms, creating trend-led costume jewellery. According to Pantone, Radiant Orchid "is an expressive, creative and embracing purple ? one that draws you in with its beguiling charm".
