When Pantone announced their 2017 color of the year, I admit I wasn’t entirely sold on Greenery, a bright springy, yellowy green that seemed to come out of nowhere. But after reading the backstory, I get it: After a difficult year for so many people, both socially and politically, Greenery is Pantone’s effort to offer a symbol of growth, health, and new beginnings.
Jewelry in Pantone’s Greenery is a great way to spruce up your wardrobe but it’s not all that easy to find; most of the green we’re seeing in jewelry right now is either a traditional deep emerald, or more of a green turquoise.
So we’re here to help!
If you’re looking for a little something special for a New Year’s Eve party, so you can manifest some good health and new beginnings yourself, here are a few baubles we’ve got our eye on. And here’s to a bright, happy new year for all of us.

I really like this delicate, classic peridot Swarovski bracelet I found at Sprig Jewelry on Etsy. Just the right amount of bling to brighten up the drab winter, and I love that I could wear it to dress up a pair of jeans too. Plus, the price is terrific — just $32.
Go big with a bold statement, and snag this Green Collage necklace from Bel Monili on Etsy. All of her pieces are one-of-a-kind and handmade, but she has lots of this vivid green color in her collection. And the beauty of Etsy is that you can always request a custom order!
I’m swooning over Kiki McDonough’s stunning peridot and diamond stud earrings I spotted over at Neiman Marcus for a cool $1,200. For a more affordable version, also take a look at the birthstone stud earrings at Nordstrom, which are beauties too.
