Burnt or Pumpkin Orange, Amber
Similar color to amber, as you see in the picture, and perfect for this summer.
While some may think of pumpkin orange or amber as a fall color, the spring runways showed that this color transcends seasons. The amber-brown undertones give an earthy and elegant feel, according to Pantone.
It looks like this color will be around until at least the fall.
Buttercream, Chamomile, Ivory
Neutrals are required when utilizing a colorful summer. The yellow-tinted ivory and buttercream bring elegance.
Cherry Red, Fiery Red, Coral
Bright colors are important when standing out from a crowd and this color is definitely a beautiful color.
Whenever summer comes around, we tend to think of the fruits of summer, the blueberries, cherries, and berries overall. Adding the coral coloring to a necklace or other piece of jewelry will create that great summer vibe.
What is really great about the colors of summer is the mixing of neutrals with natural gems. And being able to make it yourself rather than finding an antique ivory or coral piece that might have negative connotations.
Finding an amber piece might be easier, but you have to distinguish between amber and copal. Copal is a younger preserved resin of 30 million years or less and therefore is not amber, which is hardened resin older than 30 million years.
