If you haven’t already read JCK senior editor Jennifer Heebner’s 12 Jewelry Trends for 2013 (what are you waiting for?), you’ve missed out on an extensive, detailed list of what to buy, sell, and stock in your store this year. I’m bringing you some of the best on-trend jewels our exhibiting brands at JCK Las Vegas have to offer, straight from JCK Marketplace.
Trend #12: Amber. Rounding out the last of our 12 jewelry trends for 2013 is amber, is a rich, luscious gemstone that I adore for its autumnal tones and luminous aesthetic. A fossilized tree resin, amber has a variety of uses, one of the most interesting I think, is perfume, but it certainly gets its best close-up in jewelry. I’ve had a thing for amber since that crucial scene in Jurassic Park—you know the one, right? It’s actually not that uncommon to find amber stones with inclusions—some even with mosquitoes, ants, and other creatures inside. You won’t find that in the pieces I’ve selected here, though. These jewels are warm, chic, and perfect for year-round wear (though the golden tones do tend to remind me of autumn). To close out our 2013 jewelry trends series, enjoy these 5 amber pieces from JCK Marketplace.
