Back to Classics for Spring Fashion

Classic themes, subtle or traditional colors, and drop silhouettes emerged as the key jewelry fashion trends at the VicenzaOro 1 show held Jan. 12-19 in Vicenza, Italy. Hearts and crosses remain two of the strongest design themes for 2003, but designers are interpreting these traditional favorites through innovative forms. Pasquale Bruni, for example, takes his favorite word—amore—and crafts it in white gold and diamond pavé, then weaves it into crosses. Hearts, meanwhile, are slightly askew in simple heart pendants from Fope or clustered to form clovers at Valente. Charms were one of the most popular styles at Vicenza. They were used not only in traditional charm bracelets—this time by higher-end companies like German designer Gert Hellmuth—but also in more unusual ways. Stefan Hafner, for example, uses small gemstone pavé or briolette charms to adorn gemstone pavé rings.
