Today we present the second in our series of four posts about fall 2014 jewelry trends. By contrast with classic pearls, which we featured as our inaugural trend, today’s post switches gears and explores the pearl’s counterpoint: an edgier, darker look that was just as popular on the fall runways. We’re calling it “Underworld,” and we think you’re going to like it.

Seasonal trends can be hard to nail down and staying on top of them is a daunting task for a jeweler busy at the bench. But, like it or not, trends will drive your customers’ behavior, and having your hammer on their pulse can translate directly into sales. Today, on The Studio, see four of the fall season’s biggest trends and bring them from the catwalk to your jewelry bench.
Wedding season is almost upon us. And while diamonds are usually the darlings of the jeweler’s bench during this time of year, more and more couples are requesting sapphires, rubies, topaz, and other colored stones for their engagement rings. Will your work reflect this colorful trend? Check out The Studio today to get inspired!
Today at The Studio we talk with three jewelers (from three different continents!) whose work takes inspiration from the clean lines and simple forms of geometry. Shlomit Ofir of Shlomit Ofir Jewelry Design, Laura Geupin of SharpCloud, and Jess Jones of FawnAndRose are all creating Etsy Trends We Love –Check it out!
Today, on The Studio, we’re sharing three necklace projects from Rio’s Winter Fashion Trends Project page. These necklaces hearken back to the black and white style of the Roaring ’20s. In long lengths, they swing on dancers, sway in casual conversation, and accentuate the neck of the wearer, already fashionably exposed by the short, sassy bob hairstyle of the era. Be inspired by these and ALL the projects on our Fashion Trends webpage and see where they take your own designs!
