All About Design

A preview from JCK’s Design Center and Design@LUXURY neighborhoods My infatuation with the Design Center at JCK Las Vegas is no secret. It has long been a favorite neighborhood of mine, thanks to its beautifully created, artisan designs and really cool people. This year the show promises to be better than ever. You’ll find one-of-a-kind designs. You’ll find price point jewels. You’ll discover up-and-coming vendors and visit familiar favorites. You can source jewelry that your customer base will love for its striking originality just as easily as you can find on-trend pieces inspired by the latest “in” looks—as interpreted by…

Ring in Spring

Comments

Spring is in the air. You can’t deny the sense of renewal that comes with the beginning of this beautiful season (even if you’re busy stocking up on Claritin). And with spring comes a desire for brighter colors. The muted tones of winter become a distant memory, put away until November rolls around again (not too soon!). To celebrate, we’ve compiled a selection of beautifully hued rings straight from our LUXURY exhibitors. From perfect pastels to dazzlingly vivid tones, these will make you feel alive again, in sync with the season’s blooming flowers, replenishing rains, and long-awaited sunshine. See them…

Know the Stone: Moonstone and Opal

Comments

Two of my favorite things When deciding which stone to spotlight for this edition of JCK Tucson’s “Know the Stone,” I was stuck between two that are equally mesmerizing: moonstone and opal. And then I thought, why choose? When you visit Tucson, you get jewels and scenery—so I’m combining two wondrous things, too. Both are luminous and filled with light. You’d be hard-pressed to find another colored gemstone that comes to life quite like these two—every way the light hits, there’s a new awe-inspiring scene, giving off a range of depth and color.
