Last year at this time, if you asked most exhibitors their thoughts on what to watch at the JCK show in Las Vegas (and we did), they said color—and lots of it. What will be remembered as the year we began our return to society, bursts of gemstone color were thought to be celebratory, a marked indication of our joy outside of the home.
That jubilant nature has not faded in 2023, and color has only gotten bigger and more prevalent. In jewelry, that means gemstones in statement sizes should be on full display in Vegas.
Which colors in particular will see the most play? While we look forward to the surprises the show floor has in store—it’s always a thrill to discover budding trends—most shades of green are in high favor, and pink is having its Barbie Dream moment.
Below, some of the colored gemstones set to dazzle at the JCK show in Las Vegas.
