Trends to Watch: Take Two

Comments

Bicolor Gemstones are Where it’s At There’s nothing quite like a juicy colored gemstone. Except, of course, when that gemstone features more than one color. Sometimes, their colors swirl together, twisting in a helix of succulent shades. Other times, the colors seem to saturate one another, blending together like drops of dye in water. Even still, there are those gemstones that are almost perfectly colorblocked, you can hardly believe this was done by nature. But natural they are, which makes the bicolor (or tricolor, or more!) gemstone all the more miraculous. It depends on the type of gemstone, which determines…

Comments

The big and bold jewels for your store A lot can change in the transition from runway to real life. As we approach fall 2018, it’s interesting to look back on last year’s fashion shows to see how well they set the tone for our current season. One of the biggest trends to take away from the Fall/Winter 2018–19 fashion shows was big, bold jewelry of all sorts. You had statement necklaces, colossally sized earrings, and super-wide bangle bracelets, just to name a few. When it comes to fall and winter sales, look for more of the same. Think big…

Now that you’ve made your return home and are on the mend from a week (or more) in Vegas, let’s review. A walk down short-term memory lane might inspire you to think of the jewels you saw, the people you met, and the events you attended. But let’s talk about the jewels (obviously in no short supply) that represented every trend we expected to see, new designs that caught our eye and features from each individual designer that kept us enthralled throughout the entire show floor.  And, like with anything in big numbers, you start to see some movements.
