Pantone just announced the color of the year for 2014 - Radiant Orchid - a lovely light purple. What do you think?
Personally, I like it very much. Its feminine, soft and bold. This would be a beautiful color to mix with gold and especially rose gold. I'm trying to think of gemstones that are available in this color... can't think of any off the top of my head that match it exactly. Maybe the closest to Radiant Orchid are the purple patches of color in these moss amethyst drops:
