Pantone has just announced Ultra Violet as the 2018 Color of the Year. This is certainly great news as purple is one of the most wearable colors, found across plenty of watches, jewelry, and accessories. You can expect the Ultra Violet shade to pop up everywhere this year from wardrobe staples to home furnishings to beauty products. Get ready to rock the 2018 Color of the Year with these Ultra Violet colored jewelry pieces, watches, and accessories.
How to Wear the 2018 Color of the Year: Ultra Violet Watches
More colorful than standard black, blue, brown, silver, and gold, purple watches are a vibrant way to dress up your wrist. And we have a couple of great choices. First, there’s the stunning ladies’ Omega Constellation watch dressed in luscious violet shades. Naturally, the 35mm stainless steel case features a bezel with Roman numerals and four “griffes”–a signature design trait of the Constellation collection. The dramatic dial flaunts a purple supernova patterned dial with 11 diamond hours markers and a discreet date window at 6 o’clock. Finishing off the beautiful ladies’ Omega luxury watch is the striking purple leather strap with a steel tang buckle.
Another watch that showcases the 2018 Color of the Year is the Ulysse Nardin Executive Dual Time Lady timepiece with a rich purple dial. Sporting a generously sized 40mm stainless steel case, the Executive Dual Time offers plenty of practicality for the wearer. In addition to the local time displayed via the center hour and minute hands, there’s a window at 9 o’clock to indicate the hour in an additional time zone. Furthermore, there’s the running seconds subdial at 6 o’clock and double date window at 2 o’clock. Particularly useful is how the in-house Caliber UN-24 automatic movement is set. All the wearer has to do to change the second time zone is to push the duo of pushers on the lefthand side of the case–no need to pull out the winding crown or to remove the watch. No ruined manicures here! Displaying an intriguing design, the purple dial of this Executive Dual Time Lady includes uniquely shaped Roman numerals and plenty of diamonds to dazzle onlookers. The sporty side of the watch is emphasized by its white rubber strap.
How to Wear the 2018 Color of the Year: Ultra Violet Jewelry
Aside from watches, another fabulous way to wear the 2018 Color of the Year is to don some jewelry pieces that feature the Ultra Violet shade. For instance, dangling at the bottom of this 18k white gold precious Purple Sapphire Pendant Necklace is a stunning 3.87-carat purple sapphire stone framed by 0.73-carats of pavé diamonds.
The most famous purple gemstone, however, is no doubt the amethyst. Make a statement with this distinct Moonstone, Blue Sapphire, and Purple Amethyst 18k White Gold Ring, which shows off a seductive circular design of sapphire and amethyst gemstones encircling a faceted center moonstone.
Alternatively, if you want to wear even more Ultra Violet colored jewelry pieces, there’s the full Amethyst Necklace, Ring, and Earrings Set in 14k yellow gold. Mixing a range of textures from smooth to faceted gems and a range of colors from yellow gold to white diamonds to purple amethyst, this is a show-stopping way to wear the 2018 Color of the Year.
How to Wear the 2018 Color of the Year: Ultra Violet Watch Straps
