12 Jewelry Trends for 2015: Whimsical Color Combinations

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. Whimsical color combinations are the 11th trend on the list. Here are five new options for retailers to consider stocking.

Whimsical color combinations. There were plenty of patterns and crazy color combinations—remember Chanel’s rainbows?—on runways for spring and pre-fall 2015, so accessories should nod to those aesthetics in the form of mosaics of color, playful trios of hues, more rainbows (a look confirmed by our friends at Jewelers of America), or single pops of color to highlight one in a pattern.
