The annual list of 12 Jewelry Trends for 2015 serves as a guideline for store purchases in the new year, highlighting pieces and materials trending now, based on the clothing, color, red carpet, and real-life influences at work in the market. Vintage-inspired jewelry is the ninth trend on the list. Here are five new options for retailers to consider stocking.

Vintage-inspired designs. There were so many baguette cuts this year in so many lines! Do you remember seeing them? Not to mention the Art Deco influences still going strong. And now that the stigma of buying gold off the street is long gone, jewelers have healthy inventories of estate pieces for sale as well as nice stocks of loose stones from said purchases. In 2015, the old will surely continue to inspire the new—and new purchases. The beauty of the past is alive and well in present-day jewelry.
