The world is going crazy for green thanks to Pantone….and Swarovski crystals are no exception.
The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is Greenery. The bright, fresh, and zesty yellow-green hue was carefully selected by the Pantone Color Institute. Although bold in shade, Pantone sees it as “nature’s neutral” and lends itself to many color combinations, including pastels, metallic, neutrals, brights, and deep shades. Greenery is refreshing and revitalizing, symbolic of new beginnings and new life and connecting with nature.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute has publicly stated that “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the re-connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
Here at HarMan Importing, we are loving that the world is going gaga for greenery as much as we are!! As wholesale distributors of Swarovski crystal, we work with several crystal colors in the green family every day and see its upmost potential in the beading, crafting, fashion, and jewelry designing industries. Below we have highlighted some of our favorite “shades of green” that we feel best represent Pantone’s New Color of the Year.

We have recently launched several Swarovski crystal flatback rhinestones and new coatings that were designed specifically for the Dancesport Industry. The newly debuted Shimmer Effect colors were created by Swarovski with the intention that all dancers sparkle brightly and stand out. There are three Shimmer Effect Coatings that embody Pantones’ “Greenery” trend. One might say that dancers whose costumes bedazzle in green hues, leave their competition “green with envy”!! (Fun fact: We have sold more peridot to dance costume manufacturers this season that in any other year!)
