WHETHER OR NOT visions of poker chips dance in your head, the jewelry industry heads to Vegas each summer for a reason: to hunt down the best, most desirable new products and bring them home so they can sell like hotcakes. The veritable oodles of Vegas options can be overwhelming, so we’re here to whisper in your ear with a few insider tips. When it comes to new jewels, look towards light and lovely blue gemstones, the bold strength of collar necklaces, the sweet nostalgia of heart shapes, and vivid, versatile enamel.

On-trend jewelry by Shy Creation includes Eden diamond drop earrings, $2,000; Kate lapis lazuli and diamond studs, $360; Kate sapphire and diamond ring, $330; Kate sapphire bezel ring, $330; Kate sapphire and diamond eye ring, $1,200; Kate lapis lazuli and diamond shaker necklace, $580; Kate sapphire and diamond eye pendant, $490; and Kate lapis lazuli, turquoise and diamond heart pendant, $730.

Collar Cotillion

Longer than a choker but more substantial than a pendant, the collar necklace is a standout statement, a confident proclamation of stellar style. A collar necklace takes up more space on the body than a standard chain, just like a bold jewelry lover isn’t afraid to take up space in the world.
