Coal’s cousin, jet, gives jet black its name. It is a product of the high-pressure decomposition of wood and is popular in jewelry and furniture design. Jet black is also used to describe the color of the darkest shade of black hair.
Like other black hues, jet black is elegant and timeless. It is associated with sophistication, night, and death. Jet black is also extremely versatile—it can be combined with any other color in the visible spectrum to achieve a variety of vibes. Pair it with orange, for example, and you get Halloween. Combine it with gold, and you’re well on your way towards creating a luxurious feel.
