We are constantly surrounded by colors emitting specific meaning to us. But do you know what the colors actually mean? Let’s tap into the powerful magic of color symbolism.
We might not understand exactly how this works, but there’s a clear link between colors and their impact on us. It is scientifically proven that colors can affect our moods, emotions and even behaviors!
From fine jewelry, to clothing and the wallpaper in our house, colors carry information and character. They can bring out the best and worst in us. What colors we choose to wear or have around has great influence. So, to make the best color choice in any matter, it’s imperative that you know the significance of colors.
Here’s a rundown of 11 colors and their meaning.
One of the most beloved colors out there is blue. It has an alluring energy that attracts many. Blue is a color for the cool, calm and powerful. The color symbolizes trust and competence, and its depth will give you soul wisdom and its lightness will give you a sense of perfection.

The most coveted blue gemstone is the stunning sapphire. Sapphires are usually blue (but not all). Many of our rings in the Peacock collection are sapphires. Take a look at our wonderful blue gems here.
Green makes us instantly think of the elements around us, like grass, plants, trees and nature. No wonder the freshness of green is usually associated with spring and rebirth. It’s all about growth and harmony in life, a color that will easily soothe your emotions. Fun fact; recent studies show that when people look at the color green for several seconds, their pulse rate slows and their blood pressure drops. Incredible, right?
Typical green gemstones include sapphires, emeralds and tourmalines. Many of our Nangi rings come in an array of greens from deeper tones to lusher greens. Take a look at all of them here.
Here’s a color that exudes passion, energy, love and romance. But as we all know, love can also hurt, so don’t be fooled; red is also the color of danger! The association to blood gives red a serious connotation, bringing out determination and willpower in us.
Red is a bold color choice, typically appearing as a statement piece. Favorited gems in red are gorgeous garnets and tourmalines, as well as the much-sought-after rubies.

The color of queens and kings – purple has long been associated with the ruling classes, mostly because purple dye was so expensive. Only the rich could afford purple. That makes this color historically connected to wealth and luxury. Purple also radiates magic and spirituality, and is the color for those who like a little mystery in their life.
