12 Jewelry Trends for 2016: 6 New Black and White Jewels

A perennial favorite, black and white is as easy to love in fine jewelry as it is in couture

The annual list of 12 Jewelry Trends for 2016 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. Black and white jewelry is the first trend on the list. Here are six new options for retailers to consider stocking.

Black and white. With a newer jet-black rhodium being used by designers and some decidedly rock-star-chic styles coming out of the Paris Fashion Week shows for spring, this evergreen color combination will live on in Art Deco–inspired jewels, enamel, and silver or white gold with rhodium effects.
