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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
