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.
