12 Jewelry Trends for 2013: Snake Jewels From JCK Marketplace



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. And since you’ll likely want to scour the show floor for these top trends at this year’s JCK Las Vegas, I’m bringing you some of the best on-trend jewels our exhibiting brands have to offer, straight from JCK Marketplace.

Trend No. 5: Snakes The Year of the Snake has propelled the serpent motif to the utmost demand in jewelry, apparel, home decor, and even body art; but its popularity extends far beyond this recent trend. Dating as far back to ancient Egyptian civilization, the snake symbolized royalty and deity, and is often seen in Victorian jewelry, where it represents eternal love. Nowadays, the modern serpent still stands for those things, along with an air of sexuality. Let’s play the association game. When I say snake, what’s the first word that comes to mind? My response: Cleopatra. I think that answers my own question—why is the snake motif so fierce and sexy? For your viewing (and selling) pleasure, here are 10 jewels boasting a serpent design.
