This year, green is the top trending color in interior decorating, fashion, and jewelry. But how did green become the “it” color? Well, it turns out it was predicted. This blog post covers the 2022 trend and one of our favorite green gemstones: tsavorite garnet. 

The “It” Color of 2022

Before the start of the year, Etsy Trend Expert, Dayna Isom Johnson wrote in a company blog post that green would be the color for 2022 and that the color: “Symbolized harmony and growth, along with royalty and refinement, emerald green is the perfect color to remind us to find balance this year.” She also stated at the time: “We’re already seeing shoppers looking for ways to incorporate this hue, with searches for emerald green items up 64 percent and emerald green decor up 60 percent.” 

Interior designers have taken note as well: A recent panel survey from Sherwin-Williams, which included more than 400 professional designers, found that emerald green was the top prediction for the most on-trend color in 2022. The company chose "Evergreen Fog" as their Color of the Year 2022.

To top it all off, pop culture has seen two significant engagements sporting green engagement rings. Megan Fox received an emerald and diamond engagement ring from Machine Gun Kelly, and Jennifer Lopez received a unique green diamond engagement ring from Ben Affleck.

Green Tsavorite Garnet

More than just pop culture, we’ve seen that green gemstones have been very popular this year across the jewelry industry. At Park City Jewelers, one of our favorite green gemstones is tsavorite garnet or “tsavorite” for short. Tsavorite is the rarest color of the gemstone garnet and features stunning green hues. 

Tsavorite is known as the gemstone of vitality, prosperity, and compassion and is believed to help people find beauty in themselves and others. Green is a calming hue; its color energy promotes growth, renewal, and stability. 

It was discovered in 1967 by the British geologist Campbell R Bridges. The gemstone is named after the Tsavo Game Reserve in Kenya, where it was first discovered. Since the discovery, the only other place it has been found in Tanzania. 

Tsavorite gemstones have a high refractive index and high dispersion levels that give them stunning brilliance. Prized gemstones have a richly saturated deep color, and gemstones larger than two carats are especially rare. Compared to emeralds, tsavorite is typically much less included, which adds to its beauty. 

Another significant aspect of tsavorite is that it measures  6.5-7.5 Mohs Hardness Scale, which makes it an excellent gemstone for use in all settings, including rings and bracelets.


Green is a classic gemstone color that never goes out of style, and tsavorite is one of the most beautiful gemstones in the world. If you’re in love with green, you’ll love adding a piece of tsavorite jewelry to your collection. Click here to shop our collection of tsavorite garnet.
