This month, we promise to scorch your eyeballs with our annual trend report — our up to the moment dive into the state of the art in jewelry design.

Right in time for Vegas (or your summer shopping), product editor Tanya Dukes selects the year’s most omnipresent trends, identifies others on upswings, and then adds a couple outside-the-norm categories you can stock in order to carve new revenue streams into your business.

In the category of 2015’s uber-trends, you’ll find the still-hot (and maybe even getting-hotter) mobile diamonds, chunky new gold styles made possible by the classic metal’s price drop, plus an ever-wilder variety of things to put on your ears (cuffs, climbers and jackets).

As for rising trends, check out a sophisticated wave of men’s jewelry designs, the return of rose gold and a selection of funky styles that mix precious metals and gems with humbler materials like wood, rubber and silk.

Finally, we aim to inspire you to add a display case or two for newer product categories like wearable tech (such as Ringly’s buzzed-about telephone notification ring) and (perhaps the biggest business-expanding category of all) same-sex commitment jewelry.

Settle down, grab a cool drink, and get ready to salivate over 12 pages of utterly gorgeous jewelry.

Wishing you the very best business,

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
