Pantone are the recognised colour authority of the world. Releasing predictions, forecasts, trends analysis and a huge array of resources to do solely with colour, they influence and gauge how colour is used across the globe. And, from a purist point of view, remember that colour is highly influential itself, with certain colours creating certain moods. Swarovski and Preciosa work closely with Pantone colour trends. We hope you like this chart, designed to capture current colour trends in crystal shades. Enjoy!
