Every month from now until JCK Las Vegas 2013, I’ll highlight one trend from the 12 Jewelry Trends for 2013 post on my Style 360 blog—an editorial first look at new collections worldwide and expert market analysis on jewelry trends and new products. My colleague, Brittany Siminitz, manager of JCK Marketplace, an expansive online showroom of gorgeous merchandise sold at the JCK shows, will do the same on her On Your Market blog.
Spring fashions are flirty and romantic, full of sheer fabrics, ruffles, floral accents, and necklines that scream for a sweetly styled pendant or earrings. Think of delicate karat gold pieces, dainty designs with negative space, matte and frosted finishes on metal and stones, and silky-looking lustrous pearls to complete dreamy looks. Soft accessory silhouettes will speak volumes this season without upstaging the season’s new threads.
