Trends to Watch: Charms, I’m Sure!

A flurry of recent trade fairs ushered in a busy season for the jewelry industry. The hot products from these shows represent the trends to keep your eye on this year. Each week we’ll feature one or more of the top trends you can expect to see more of at The JCK Las Vegas Show.

Last week our featured trend was “Ice, Ice Baby”, this week we focus on Charms.


To appeal to buyers in lean times, there’s nothing like charm jewelry. Pieces are not only affordable but also collectible and cute when paired with future add-ons.

Chat charms are made in silver and 14k gold and feature popular chat terms like LOL and OMG, as well as emoticons. Old World Chain, Los Angeles; (800) 367-1858; www.oldworldchain.com.
