The 2023 Colour of the Year, Viva Magenta, is bright, striking and fun. Chosen by Pantone to encourage self-expression and a bolder, brighter outlook on life, Viva Magenta is a statement of positivity.
Described as ‘brave and fearless’, this daring colour is all about adding joy to our everyday. Kiki’s rubellite stone shares the same pink hues, and the same connotations. Said to promote optimism and good energy, rubellite is prized for its vivid pink colour. It is also looked upon to balance the heart and re-ignite enthusiasm and passion in love. Wear rubellite with a monochrome look for an eye-catching pop of colour or do what Kiki does best and pair with contrasting hues such as blue or green.
Rubellite is paired with Blue Topaz in our Kiki Classic Blue Topaz and Rubellite Gypsy Ring in 18ct Yellow Gold.
Fire opal is another of Kiki’s favourite gemstones with a magnificent red hue. Inner peace and creativity is symbolised by this fiery stone, encouraging anybody who wears it to burn brighter. For this reason, fire opal is chosen for a few of our Unique earrings, one-of-a-kind designs with the intention to stand out. Set in yellow gold, fire opal can bring a touch of warmth to any outfit. Turn to this gemstone whenever you need to liven up a neutral outfit or become a true lady in red and wear your fire opals with a full red look.
Make a statement with our Kiki Unique Fire Opal Pear and Diamond Marquise-Shaped Earrings in 18ct Yellow Gold.
Whilst the red tone of Viva Magenta suggests a colour defiant in spirit, it is also a reminder to embrace empathy and emotion. In our busy modern lives, it can be difficult to take time to appreciate life’s beauty. Famously seen as a representative of love, the pink tone urges us all to face this year with optimism and a warm heart.
If we can learn from 2023’s Colour of the Year, it is to shout louder, be bolder, and embrace whatever lies ahead.
