5 Wearables From the International Consumer Electronics Show

Where jewelry and technology collide

Technology writers from every corner of the Internet are breathlessly reporting on the newest crop of wearable devices debuting at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week.

The four-day show, which ends tomorrow, has existed for years but officially became a must-follow for jewelers this year due to the influx of new devices doubling as jewelry.

You’ll definitely see some of the show’s standout wearables in future Tool Time columns in JCK (and here on JCKonline), but for now, sink your teeth into these new smart baubles.

BlueJewelz pendants, in sterling silver and karat gold, harness classic jewelry design in a simple notifier that connects via Bluetooth to a phone.
