Flowers, feathers, and other types of girly details are evident on a number of designs this year. While some are definitely statement pieces, like Yvel’s one-off brooch or Siera Jewelry’s ring, pieces from Gumuchian’s new collection and items from Sylva & Cie offer an understated elegance that many consumers now want.
Retailers, are flowers a flop or selling out fast? Please tell me by way of the comment function.

My favorite Sevan piece to date: an 18k and sterling bracelet with colorful flowers carved into quartz with diamond and colored stone accents. I saw this piece during Baselworld and again at JCK Las Vegas. It’s a perfect fit on my wrist. I think I’ll place this photo in my jewelry box and pretend I own it. Sevan during JCK Las Vegas.
