SILVER HAS BEEN THROUGH A SERIES OF RENAISSANCES THROUGHOUT JEWELRY HISTORY: in Victorian times, it was more valuable than platinum. Today, it’s a flexible staple, appearing frequently in both everyday designs and staggering statement pieces. Silver’s ease and versatility ensure that it will never be irrelevant.

Whimsical Figural Styles Connect With Customers

Silver’s lightness makes it an excellent material for figural designs, while its affordability means that it can sell whimsical pieces that shoppers might not feel able to justify at a gold or platinum price point. These designs take advantage of silver’s unique properties to convey recognizable figures, from flowers to felines.

CATE BLANCHETT TURNED up in a pearl and gold hair clip at the Venice Film Festival, signaling that the trend toward jewels for the hair continues. We saw everything from feminine to ornate hair accessories on the red carpet during the 2019 awards season, and it’s a look that we see moving forward into 2020. Designers create a range of looks from simple and streamlined clips for sleek updos to fancier combs and barrettes. You can also teach your customers how to get inventive with ear climbers that can double as barrettes by securing them with a bobby pin the color of their hair.
