Viva Magenta Pantone's 2023 Color of the Year

Viva Magenta Pantone's 2023 Color of the Year

It's a new year and time for a new Pantone color. To give you a taste of the Viva Magenta vibe, here's a few of the words and phrases being used to describe the new color: joyous, a celebratory color, good vibes, strength, female empowerment, assertive but not aggressive, and self-expression without restraint. 

Magenta is a vibrant, bold color that is often associated with creativity, energy, and passion. It is a shade of pink that is more intense and saturated than traditional pink, and can range from a deep, rich hue to a bright, fuchsia color.

Rhodolite (a perfect choice if you're looking to incorporate Viva Magenta into your jewelry collection), is a pink to red gemstone that is a variety of garnet. It can range in color from pale pink to deep, rich magenta, and is known for its radiance and durability.
