12 Jewelry Trends: Gold Layering Jewelry



The price of gold is making it more appealing to designers and consumers alike

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. Gold layering pieces are the fourth trend on the list. Here are 10 new pieces for retailers to consider stocking.

Gold layering pieces. The price of gold is luring more artists away from silver and back to the warmer metal. There are some looks—delicate charm bracelets and dainty pendant necklaces—that just translate better in gold, and when prices are more reasonable, who wouldn’t prefer to make a layered statement in a richer metal?
