Etsy Faves: Honeysuckle – Pantone Color of 2011

Honeysuckle: A Color for All Seasons

What can Honeysuckle colored jewelry or accessories do for me?


  • Honeysuckle is a bold reddish pink that will give you a rosy glow when worn.
  • Even a little bit of honeysuckle in your accessories can be eye-popping-ly attractive especially since summer’s here.
  • Honeysuckle will go with every skin tone and can be worn as a day-time accessory or a night-time one.
  • If you need a quick mood lift, slip on some honeysuckle colored earrings or a lovely ring and your ready to take on the world!

How to wear Honeysuckle Jewelry

As Pantone’s website suggests, you can wear these pieces of jewelry with black, navy, or gray clothes. Personally, I would prefer to tone down the contrast and wear them with a charcoal or light gray outfit in winter or for a formal occasion. For casual style, you could wear these gorgeous pieces with a pale buttercup yellow summery cotton blouse/dress or with a crisp white tee and dark jeans.
Other style suggestions from the Pantone site are:

  • Complementary bronze greens like Willow PANTONE 16-0632 and/or Tapenade PANTONE 18-0840 so that it calms down the pop of honeysuckle but keeps it cool at the same time.
  • Pinkish brown like Apricot Brandy PANTONE 17-1540 for a tonal variation on the reddish pink theme.

My Etsy Picks:

This time, I’ve classified my favorites under the style they come under! I am sure you’ll find one that you like – dressy, over-the-top, everyday or plain casual- Honeysuckle is a versatile color that anyone can wear at any time.
