Jewelry trends: Spring Jewelry Trends “More is More”
The standout jewelry trends spotted on the 2015 Spring Collection runways in New York, Paris, London and Milan indicate that “more is more” with varying sizes, unique shapes and colorful jewels.
Trending necklaces seem to be either very long or very short. The pendant necklace is coming out swinging suspended on very long chain and emphasizing large single gemstones. Chokers range in style from thick layers of gemstones for a collar type look or single strands of beads for a daintier look.
TRENDVISION, an independent observatory and research department helping jewelers identify and market jewelry trends identified asymmetrical patterning as the new hot jewelry design. Earring styles feature an unbalanced look with a single earring or two different colors, lengths, shapes or sizes. This edgy geometric trend focuses on interesting metallic and gemstone shapes and carries over to rings, bracelets and pendants.
This February, at the Tucson, Arizona Gem and Mineral Show (the Super Bowl of trade shows for gemstones) blue sapphire, aquamarine, chalcedony, opal, lapis, amber, and the standout of the show – turquoise – were prominent.
