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.
