Trend File: Betting On Black-Toned Jewels for Fall 2018

We’re knocking on summer’s door (hooray!), so your store’s cases are probably packed with floral styles and designs twinkling with brightly colored gems.

But fall is a mere three months away! And among the wintry trends we’re betting on for holiday 2018 is jewelry that incorporates inky, mysterious, ever-cool black.

The craze for black baubles kicked off last year, ascending in tandem with designs that boast bright and/or primary colors (think of designer Bea Bongiasca’s color-drenched Crawler Vine ear cuff and Brent Neale’s rainbow pieces).

Already, your options for stocking ebony jewels abound, on every price tier. Here are a few of my favorite new-to-market black-toned baubles.
