DURING AWARDS SEASON, the last piece of jewelry that our industry wants to see is small earrings. But we also want to see a focal point, and for the celebrities who made a statement with necklaces, this was the way they went with their lobes. And in real life, there is nothing like the perfect stud. The most desirable are those that allow us to feel comfortable every day; they have character, but they also let us shine. The more individualized, the better.

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.
