COLORED GEMS ARE Mother Nature’s most delicious visual candy — so what are customers hungry for in this category right now? Creativity is key: unexpected color combinations, eye-catching motifs, surprising visuals. Gen Z is the next big demographic with buying power, and they aren’t going to open their wallets for something they’ve seen 1,000 times before. BY BECKY STONE

Awesome Animals

Who doesn’t want a piece of jewelry that’s both a work of art and a tiny wearable buddy? These fantastic faunae are a triple threat, with beautiful craftsmanship, powerful symbolism, and, of course, the friend factor. The chance to anthropomorphize a piece by giving it a name may be a little bit silly, but it forges an incredibly powerful connection between jewel and wearer.

Peacock Colors

The vibrant, saturated greens and blues of peacock colors are a compelling aesthetic that is absolutely everywhere all of a sudden. It’s an electric juxtaposition, vivid and surprising but still sophisticated enough to feel like very serious jewelry. Blues and greens together are a powerful combination that makes even the smallest piece of jewelry feel noteworthy.
