Pink

Pink is a special color. Unlike any other color, red is the only one to have a separate name for its tints. Pink is soothing, nurturing. This color is more closely related to femininity and too much pink can be emasculating. It has also been said that pink is not even a real color. Some think that our eyes can't pick this particular light reflection, and our brains make up the color pink in order to see this light.

Purple symbolizes royalty and class. Back in early days, purple was the hardest color to make for dye. People used to make dye from berries and other natural resources, and it there aren't many natural things that can mix to make purple. So it made anything dyed purple super expensive, only the very wealthy could afford to wear purple products. Purple colors also symbolize romance and luxury.
