The Jewelry Insider

January 21, 2010

Learn about the trends emerging from the decade’s first major international
jewelry fair. It’s Fashion Week for the jewelry set. Get in the loop!

Every year, the Vicenza Fair brings buyers from around the world together to view some of the hottest designs coming from Italy’s top creative minds. With more than 1500
exhibitors and most of the major department stores, independent jewelers, and
manufacturers present and accounted for, the taste makers were out in full
force.

According to National Jeweler, designers focused on expanding last year’s lines with nature,
floral and geometric shapes dominating the landscape.
Butterfly styles are still popular with over-sized rings and pave designs making a
strong showing.

While the statement necklace and ring continue to be big sellers, Italian
designers are focusing on the statement earring for 2010, a look that has
already manifested itself on the Golden Globes red carpet
this year.

Yellow gold remains the metal of choice, with silver making a surprising appearance
based on continued demand from US consumers.

Many designers revealed that Baselworld, the next big jewelry fair on the
calendar (March 18th in Basel, Switzerland), promises to reveal most of the new
designs for buyers and fans, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, shop the Jewelry.com coffers for yellow gold, pave, flower and
butterfly designs to keep your jewelry box up-to-date!
