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 #10: Chinoiserie. Asian influences have been a pretty steady part of the fashion runways and home decorating circuits for the past decade, and more and more, we’re seeing those influences in new and exciting jewelry collections. From the classic tassel to the ever-popular bamboo motif (and don’t forget the dragon and snake, widely sought out for the past two years in connection with the Chinese New Year) the Far East styles are here to stay. Here are 10 of my favorite examples from JCK Marketplace.
