A gem match for every Pantone color trend
As it does each year, the Pantone Color Institute has released its forecasts for color fashion trends in Spring 2015. Using Gemewizard's technology, we suggest corresponding gemstones for each of them. Part I of a two-part series looks first at men's fashion.

Cool, thanks! I always tell myself I'm gonna pay more attention to the next season's Pantone colors, then usually don't.

I have been saying for years that I should write a book called "Color Me Gems", but I will never get around to it.

It's always funny to me when I read through jeweler and marginal blogging sites lists of gems by color. You can always tell that they don't really have any idea about what is feasibly available (considering how often they list things like topaz under green).

Off topic: I just bought an old set of the GIA color paddles that were fashioned after Pantone.
They are so awesome.
I love my Pantone paddles. =D>

They are cute, aren't they :P ! Did you get the large set or the smaller set? I have the smaller set. While in Tucson, I purchased the new "World of Color" system by Gemworld, which is based on the Munsell Color System. If you like the GIA color paddles, I think you'll like the "World of Color" :D .

I jumped on it as soon as I saw it. $1299 including shipping.
There was someone who had the set for $2900 + $100 shipping or offer. I offered $1800 including shipping.
Rejected.
So when I saw a set at 30% less than I was willing to go, I just bought it.

The $2900 source has lowered the price to $2500. :|
