The first recorded use of beige as a colour name in English was in 1887. A tincture of rose or pink as used in heraldry. Standardised in 1934.
A colour name popular in the textile and allied trades since 1550. The word Saxe is not English but is adopted from the French, where it means Saxony or Saxon. Saxony Blue was a universally-used synonym for Smalt as early as 1550. Likewise Bleu de Saxe has long been a synonym for Prussian Blue, but since 1753 Saxon Blue has been most familiar as a widely-used name for indigo extract.
Jet is the hard black lignite, which takes a brilliant polish, and by association the name has been used to describe the most intense black.
