"Emerald, a vivid verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight as well as promoting balance and harmony. Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. Also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity, no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity...This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors."
I must admit I also like Pantone's choice because the shade works well with my dark brown hair and eye and looks absolutely beautiful with many skin shades and eye colors. It's also a gorgeous color to add into not only your wardrobe but your home decor.
