French Roast (Swarovski’s Mocca): Rich and robust, French Roast is a tasty, sophisticated hue that is a great alternative to the black and charcoal basics typically worn in the fall.

Honey Gold (Swarovski’s Topaz): Honey Gold is a mellow, burnished yellow that suggests the soft-muted tones of sunlight to brighten a fall day.

Pink Flambé (Swarovski’s Indian Pink): Like the name implies, Pink Flambé is a delicious, vibrant pink with a bit of heat to it.

Tangerine Tango (Swarovski’s Hyacinth): Vivacious and enticing Tangerine Tango, Pantone’s color of the year, can be paired with Pink Flambé for an ongoing retro feeling.

Ultramarine Green (Swarovski’s Emerald): Bring a calming element to your jewelry by combining warm tones with Ultramarine Green, a deep, cooling blue-green.

Bright Chartreuse (Swarovski’s Lime): Bright Chartreuse, a vital yellow-green, pays homage to a typical spring shade and creates a bridge into the cooling days of fall. Reminiscent of bright green foliage, it provides a perfect accent to every color in the palette.

Olympian Blue (Swarovski’s Capri Blue): Olympian Blue is a bright, patriotic blue that will surely make its way into fall and winter athletic apparel.

Titanium (Swarovski’s Black Diamond): Elegant and versatile Titanium, the quintessential cool gray, is a versatile staple neutral for the fall.

Rhapsody (Swarovski’s Tanzanite): Ethereal Rhapsody is a grayed-down purple that encourages comfort and serenity with its quiet, muted tone.

Rose Smoke (Swarovski’s Vintage Rose): Another essential neutral hue, Rose Smoke is a veiled rose tone that pairs well with Rhapsody and Titanium.
