The week in sunny Las Vegas is almost a blur now. Time flew at light speed, with each and every minute of the day spent absorbing an insane amount of sparkle on the JCK show floor. I enjoyed conversations with showgoers and exhibitors about trends in jewelry–many of those indicated that color is king–but the trend that caught my eye the most was the sleek, velvety black rhodium. The dark, edgy look adds a touch of rock and roll to the most delicate, feminine pieces, and, when set with diamonds, it fits right in with the year’s penchant for black and white. Take a look at some of my favorite black rhodium jewels from the show floor.
