Swinging Style

Necklaces are jewelry’s most elegant embrace.

NECKLACES ARE TRULY THE EASIEST FORM OF JEWELRY: They don’t require sizing, piercing or careful placement and they never get in the way of your hands. A necklace can be anything you want it to be, from a subtle pendant tucked beneath your sweater to a daring, dangling declaration dripping in diamonds.

Playful Pioneers

These necklaces know the rules, they just don’t care. These curving collars and far-flung strands still seek to decorate the wearer’s décolletage, but with loose ends and unconstrained enthusiasm that will appeal to the shopper whose heart harbors a little extra wildness.

Here Is the Other Big Red Carpet Trend Besides Statement Necklaces and Linear Earrings

This diamond style comes in a variety of looks.

DIAMOND BRACELETS CLAIMED their share of the spotlight during this year’s awards season. We saw them piled high in stacks or as one wide standout piece. Designers are inspired by the garland styles of the Belle Époque, the geometric lines of art deco, and mid-20th century modern looks. Teach clients to layer styles that they can purchase over time — or help them find that one everyday go-to.

DURING RED CARPET SEASON, diamonds were out in full force starting with the Golden Globes and winding up with the Oscars. Many of the trends we saw have been evolving for a few seasons, including linear earrings. But rather than static stilettos, these interpretations had swing and movement. There was a distinctive art deco slant, which combined streamlined shapes with different cuts of diamonds and some pop gemstones.
