Have you started to make your JCK Las Vegas wish list yet? The one that helps you to check all the boxes on what to stock—the necessities, the customer requests, and the trends. Since I don’t have a retail store to stock, my list is mostly a scavenger hunt of trends (well, that and my personal wish list of goodies to treat myself to). On that list of trends: collar necklaces, which come as no surprise. The pieces have been at the top of many style lists for quite some time now, hence their much wider availability in the market—or, our propensity for spotting them more often, even when those that were already there. Still, I’m delighted by the variations, and look forward to seeing—and trying on—a number of the available pieces in Vegas. Here are a few you might see there.
