Imagine a late afternoon in midsummer, where the sun begins its descent, casting a soft, golden glow across the horizon. The sky is a canvas of pastel pinks and peaches, and the air is filled with a gentle breeze that carries the scent of blooming flowers and fresh fruits. This is the essence of the year's color for 2024: peach.

It’s been announced that 2024’s color of the year is peach, and it couldn’t be more refreshing. Peach is a beautiful, modest and feminine color that can be described as an artistic mixture of orange, white and yellow, or a pink beige (in my opinion). Like all colors, peach is easier to see than explain, and JTV has the perfect gemstone jewelry to represent it. Embrace peach’s calming hue by wearing new and trendy color-of-the-year jewelry.

Morganite: The Peach Color Gemstone

When it comes to picking out the right peach gemstone, morganite is the perfect pick! Originally known as pink beryl, morganite is a sister stone to emerald and aquamarine. What makes morganite stand out is its peachy and pink color and glass-like luster. Morganite also sports a Moh’s hardness rating of 7.5 to 8 with a fair toughness, making it safe to wear and resistant to scratching. Additionally, it rarely has inclusions, making it a pretty stone with a clear view inside.

Morganite earns its name from the famous banker and entrepreneur, J.P. Morgan, after its discovery in 1910. Found in various corners of the world, including the United States, some of the largest quantities of morganite come from the Federative Republic of Brazil and the Republic of Madagascar. Moreover, morganite earns its color of the year, peach, from traces of manganese and iron.
