Jewelry trends are one thing, but fine jewelry trends are certainly another. Deciphering what is in and out within that space requires deep investigation as some of even the biggest fine jewelers in the world might not be names you and I are thoroughly familiar with (the Cartiers and Bulgaris aside, of course). Well, just this past month, I headed off to Las Vegas to attend one of the biggest fine jewelry and luxury timepiece trade shows, Couture. Here I met with designers I currently have relationships with as well as ones I learned about for the first time thanks to Couture’s Premier Speed Mentoring program I had the honor of participating in during the show.
After multiple days of meetings, hundreds of photos on my iPhone, and a new appreciation for diamonds and gemstones as an overall industry, I was able to identify some jewelry trends I felt were bubbling and fresh to the scene. Ahead, check out the five popular jewelry trends I spotted at Couture brought to you by the jewelry designers that stood out to me most throughout the trade show. Some will be names you recognize while others will be brand new, but one thing is for sure—your jaw will drop for the next few minutes as you drool over the insane jewels ahead.
