The JCK Show and Couture are destinations to restock products that will be hot selling jewelry trends at holiday and beyond. Jewelers of America breaks down the top jewelry silhouettes in necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings to help jewelry buyers plan ahead.
Medallion & Multi-Strand Necklaces
The 2015 awards season brought necklaces into the spotlight once again. Pendants and layered strand necklaces can work with almost any neckline. Make sure you're prepared with a variety of multi-strand pieces that range from ultra-formal to more casual.
What to Merchandise: Large medallion pendants with gemstones or diamonds worn high on the neck; multi-strand necklaces, whether it be with diamonds or beads.
Studs & Cascading Earrings
Stud earrings still reign as one of the most popular everyday fine jewelry purchase and they will continue to be a hot gifting item for the coming seasons. Another earring trend is the cascading shape, inspired by the swinging chandelier trend at the 2015 Golden Globes. The sweeping movement of this silhouette is ultra-flattering; they make for a trendy and bold jewelry purchase.
