The past year may have seen the jewelry industry face its fair share of challenges, but it has responded in an amazingly creative manner, with online sales booming and brands relying more than ever on top influencers — think Ammika Harris, Chiara Ferragni, or Tracey Ellison. Yellow diamonds, tsavorites, and expandable rings are just a few items these influencers have been displaying proudly on their Instagram accounts. What other trends can you look forward to emulating in the spring?
Tracey Ellison defines colored gemstones as one of the hottest trends in the spring and summer season, when vivid hues abound and statement rings in all colors take the center stage in any sartorial person’s look. Just a few gems to watch out for are deep green tsavorites, sapphires in pink and blue, and alexandrite. The latter is perfect for the summer, since it boasts intense blue and green hues depending on how the light hits it.
The Purity Of Pearls
Pearls have always been a big part of wedding jewelry, but in recent times, they have become fashionable once again, with brides like Emma Stone choosing a pearl to take center stage in their engagement ring. These days, choosing meaningful jewelry for a wedding has been given new value, with many brides opting for vintage and heirloom pieces worn by past generations. If you have a vintage piece or a loose pearl you would like to have set, do not be afraid to mix old and new influences and to embrace your own style, adding diamond or gemstone accents if a bit of extra shine appeals, or keeping it simple and opting for a solitary setting for your pearl.
Vintage And Collector’s Pieces
If you love collecting traditional items for your personal art or décor collection, then you are probably familiar with Fabergé eggs. Asia Jewellers in Bahrain have created a gorgeous collection of wearable Fabergé pendants in gorgeous summery colors like pale pink, baby blue, and lemon yellow, all of which have a surprise inside (including a heart, a four-leaf clover, and a diamond snowflake). Ornate vintage designs are also taking the starring role in tiered choker necklaces (check out the beautiful ruby and diamond chokers by Picchiotti Fine Jewellery), dangling statement earrings, and statement rings in precious gems with removable diamond jackets (seek inspiration in the latest Colombian emerald designs of Veschetti Jewels).
Jewelry lovers may have postponed purchasing items this year, but the industry is certainly providing them with numerous temptations. Just a few hot items being donned and displayed by influencers include colored gemstones and elegant pearls. Blingy statement pieces in vintage styles are also ‘in’ this year, although many would argue that they never went out.
