Amanda’s Style File: The 5 Colors Trending in Tucson
Amanda Gizzi spotted gemstones in these shades all over AGTA Gem Fair and at Centurion, too.
Colored gemstones, as a whole, are a huge trend and it is clear 2023 and 2024 are destined to be bright and bold.
The Tucson shows in particular tend to be great indicators about which gemstones will shape the year or two ahead. Sometimes there are clear front-runners, while other color palettes or stones are unexpected surprises.
This year, there were five colors—magenta, purple, orange, teal and emerald green—that stood out, and for a few of these colors, there are multiple gemstones that can meet consumer demand and captivate their color curiosities.
See them all below.
Magenta-colored gemstones are obviously on-trend with “Viva Magenta” named the 2023 Pantone Color of the Year.
Bold pink gemstones are a natural fit with the color of the year, with pink tourmaline a near-identical match for the Pantone Viva Magenta color swatch.
Purple is one of the palettes that could be surprising at first glance, especially with amethyst suddenly being shown side-by-side with other, finer quality gemstones.
The passion for purple wasn’t confined to amethyst, however, as purple spinel and tanzanite were standouts at the shows as well.
Gemstones on the teal spectrum are the third palette on the trend watch this year.
The light teal of Paraíba tourmaline, the deeply saturated bluish teal of London Blue topaz, and bright teal sapphires are all within the range to drive desirability.
Orange brings some warmth to an otherwise cool-toned trend forecast.
Orange sapphire, Mexican fire opal, and spessartite garnet were heating up the desert at both trade shows. While orange isn’t for everyone, it is stunning and will get noticed.
Last, but not least, is emerald green.
Emerald, tsavorite and rich green tourmaline are holding strong in popularity and desirability. Sometimes the classics can be the top trends.
