Heading out to Vegas for Jewelry Week? Here are some of the trends we are predicting you will see and that you might want to bring into your store. Some have been going strong for a few seasons, while others have been evolving for a couple of years. All are popular from the red carpet to the ready-to-wear runways to the jewelry design studios. So, why not try your luck with this trend or the others we will be showing?

The ethereal allure of the evening sky and the captivating mystery of the planets and outer space have inspired jewelry designers for a number of seasons. Stars, moons, astrological patterns and the textures and colors found as we look up and beyond have all influenced some of the most creative and intriguing celestial jewelry for 2019.

And it’s perfect timing. July 20 will commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing. So we encourage retailers to take note of the imaginative and magical pieces that are orbiting the market today.

*Note: Aristotle Onassis commissioned Ilias Lalaounis to create the original pair of these earrings for Jackie Kennedy Onassis to celebrate the 1969 moon landing. He gave them to her on her 40th birthday. In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the landing on July 20, 2019, Maria Lalaounis, creative director for the brand, reintroduced the “Apollo earrings” in a slightly different version, sprinkling them with diamonds instead of rubies for the new take on these masterful designs.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
