This Thursday begins the Year of the Goat, and as Chinese New Year is celebrated, we’re saying so long to the horse, the symbol of the past year. In recent years we’ve seen the popularity of dragon, snake, and equestrian-inspired jewelry rise, coincidentally matching up with the Year of the Dragon, Snake, etc. Yeah, I think the Chinese New Year may have something to do with it. But this year’s symbolic animal is a bit of a puzzler: the goat. There is goat jewelry out there, but it doesn’t quite have the same essence as some of the aformentioned wild things. I hope to be proven wrong and that we see plenty of goat-themed jewelry this year, but personally, I think 2015 is very much about the feather. Chalk it up to the rise (and re-rise) of ’60s and ’70s fashions, where a free spirit is in vogue and plumes are the flavor. Stock any one of these jewels in your store, and you’ll have a hit no matter what the year.
