Is there any such thing as enough rings? Five fingers on a hand, seven days in a week, 12 months in a year … that’s quite a few finger adornment opportunities to fulfill, even without stacking multiples! Keep your ring trays full of tempting treats and your customers will want to scoop ‘em up by the handful.

This Swingin’ Style Was All Over the Red Carpet This Season

Linear earrings graced the jawlines of style-setting stars.

Published

on

DURING RED CARPET SEASON, diamonds were out in full force starting with the Golden Globes and winding up with the Oscars. Many of the trends we saw have been evolving for a few seasons, including linear earrings. But rather than static stilettos, these interpretations had swing and movement. There was a distinctive art deco slant, which combined streamlined shapes with different cuts of diamonds and some pop gemstones.

How Diamond Necklaces Heated Up the Golden Globes Red Carpet

Drop necklaces and chokers dominated.

mm

Published

on

AT THE 76TH ANNUAL Golden Globe Awards, the diamond necklaces gracing A-list actresses’ necks ran the gamut from the high drama of the Tiffany & Co. drop necklace worn by Lada Gaga to antique-inspired styles like the delicate bow and garland Beladora look worn by Dakota Fanning. Chokers made a comeback as well, from geometric forms such as the Cartier stunner Rachel Weisz wore and the wide diamond Bulgari collar on Kiki Layne to the more delicate Messika diamond choker adorning Constance Wu’s neck. Why not inspire your customers to invest in a similar
statement-making style, within their budget?
