Emerald green was the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year. It is a vivid, verdant green inspired by the color of the emerald gemstone. It is also symbolic of Ireland, which is often referred to as the “Emerald Isle.” With faint bluish undertones, it sits between green and blue-green in the color wheel.
Emerald green promotes healing and wellbeing and is the color of growth, renewal, and prosperity. It is a sophisticated and luxurious color and has been used to represent beauty and new life in many cultures and religions.
Emerald green sets off pinks and yellows and blends beautifully with other greens and neutrals.
