Chat On Fashion Jewelry
Button Earrings:Famous movie stars who walked on red carpet this year lead to a new fashion trends, which is button and stud style earrings step to the forefront for 2013. I join the parade to see how many ‘out-of-stock’ notices or posts there were for these styles on electronic commerce stage or online shopping stage.
What I like most is the recycled nature that old buttons can be reused into brand new jewelry and accessories.
Chandelier Earrings:In recent years, new modestly sized styles were seen in recent jewelry market shows in 2012. Big and bold is still making a statement even if pared down to a more ‘condensed’ version of 2011’s over-blown attention grabbers.
Hair Jewelry:Evident at bridal runway shows and at some red carpet events, barrettes, hair bands, tiaras, and brooches pinned in place have particular appeal to younger clients for their whimsical effect.
Jazz Age Styles:The flapper dresses from the 2012 runway shows combined with Art Deco-inspired looks in bridal and fine fashion jewelry are bringing a sense of history to mainstream jewelry boxes. I believe this is the biggest trend of the year ahead.
Moveable and Interchangeable Jewels:Ear charms are an increasing category (think of styles from Trsor Collection and Oliver Smith Jeweler) that offers diversified looks for owners. Plus, the inherent movement in these styles and other types – like mixed-link drop earrings – can mix well with voluminous fashions and those that demand drama.
Pearls:Will they be important roles for retailers in 2013? My sources are recommending smart stores will be keeping fresh water and small, colored strands in the forefront for at least one more season.
Geometric Shapes and Tribal Effects:Angular pieces like square rings and bangles will work well with column dresses while horn and leather accents will speak to tribal looks in fashion. There’s just something very hot about this!
