Summer may have just officially started, but as a retailer, it’s not often you’re able to live in the moment—at least, when it comes to your stock. No, right now you’re likely looking ahead to the fall and the holiday season as you plan your orders for the shopping season ahead.
While we look forward to a number of styles to no doubt surprise us in the season ahead, here are your sure bets to delight your customers from September and beyond–make that starting now!
You’re not going to see diminishing demands for hoops of any size, but don’t be surprised to find that you’re selling more of the huggie-type variety. They’ve been spotted on Instagram repeatedly so they’re officially a “look,” and the way they’re being worn is two per ear, with a different pair in each ear. Those seeking to emulate this style will be in the market for more than a pair, so stock up!
Gold jewelry is still massive in both fine and fashion jewelry, from big chunky necklaces and earrings to demure pendants and studs. In terms of bridal, you’ll most likely find white metals to be stronger, but if it’s fashion, go for the gold.
Reach for the Stars

Some go for neon bright, while others use the technique to add a splash of something special to a detailed diamond ring. The possibilities with enamel are endless, and these styles really do function as conversation pieces.
