Every year, Pantone determines a color of the year, and it’s picked up by designers, celebrities and the best DIY websites
. Let’s bid adieu to 2013 by going all out with its signature color, emerald
While emerald was used in clothing and furniture design this year,
nothing was more apparent than its presence in jewelry. Proven by
Christina Hendricks and Maria Menounos, left, the hottest stars walked
the red carpet throughout the year showing off this dazzling hue. You,
too, can walk your own runway with the same effect at a much lower price. Pay homage to enchanting emerald with your own jewelry creations
This stunning color can be paired with a myriad of other shades,
including rich purple, deep maroon, bright yellow, stark white, classic
black and even its own brilliant hue. That means that these DIY pieces
can be worn with almost anything. A breathtaking piece that can be worn
everyday? Oh, yes!
