Sample Jewelry Pro Trends

Each Jewelry PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online jewelry articles, videos and images. Examples:

Peacocking Neon statement fashion proves subtly is overrated; boldness is in Implications - The neon movement celebrates bright and bold in-your-face color. These neon styles are all about "peacocking" and prove you don't have to spend a lot of money to say "Look at me!" Bold wardrobes are all what you wear, not who you wear. These fashions express that subtly is out, and big and bold is in.

Wearable Tech Gadget-infused accessories make for easy connectivity Implications - Making their way into the hearts of the fashionable and geeky alike are stylish, hi-tech accessories that can do everything from monitor your blood pressure to control your iPod. With a rising preference for portability and easy-to-use technology, it’s no surprise that many designers are trying to merge fashion and function.

Shabby Chic Couture Pre-distressed materials offer consumers a sought-after edge Implications - What is typically associated with everything shabby has taken on a new form in the market. It now costs big bucks to buy products with already distressed-looking materials. Shabby-chic fashions—with high prices—give consumers an edge to set themselves apart, yet allow them to maintain a high-fashion look.

Egyptianizing The ancient civilization becomes the epitome of exoticism Implications - Photography, art, design, fashion and architecture are all getting the Egyptian treatment, and consumers are looking to own a piece of the faraway land with Egypt-inspired products. Providing inspiration ranging from pyramids to the legendary female pharaoh, the Arabic country, for Western consumers, has become the epitome of exoticism.

Remixed Sculpture 3D art is given a contemporary spin with quirky designs and unorthodox materials Implications - Traditionally a significant part of the public domain, sculptures are increasingly infiltrating the private sphere as artists apply quirky, unconventional motifs and media to their 3D art. As part of marketing campaigns and private art exhibits, sculptures are becoming much more unique and no longer characterized by the classic 3D model.

Rise of Headwear Statement hats as budget-conscious, wearable art Implications - Hats were a status symbol for many decades, and while they fell off the fashion radar for the greater part of the last decade, they're making a comeback. Millinery makes for easy-to-adopt statement pieces, as a single hat can lend itself to various looks, making it budget-friendly and versatile.

Geo Jewelry Raw gems & stones are becoming foundation for fashion accessories Implications - Simple gems and polished stones have nothing on today’s jagged and raw rocks, which can be found brandishing everything from necklaces to rings. These severe and often harshly cut stones emit a naturalistic look that seems right in line with the current consumer love for eco-friendly and organic living. Not only that, the unpolished, ragged and unique nature of these raw accessories speaks to fashionistas who want to show off their more daring and unrestrained sides.

Karmacessories Designers craft luck-inspired products to appease consumer concern Implications - The inability to control negative external events has led consumers to turn to products with cosmic and supernatural design elements. Jewelry, accessories and other common items crafted with luck-inspired components evoke emotion and feelings of hope, both of which stand to raise consumer purchasing confidence.

Haute Retrocessories Fanny packs and other old school accessories become luxury fashion goods Implications - The 80s revival is in full swing and that means everything from fanny packs to visors are back on the fashion scene. While in the 80s and 90s hip-slung wallets, plastic head-toppers and multicolored socks were shunned by fashionistas, today they have found a new market in high fashion.

Knucklecessories Brass knuckles let consumers play a role far from their genuine personality Implications - Brass knuckles are being redefined from fight club must-have to snazzy fashion statement—especially for the females. Haute knuckledusters not only give a toughness to ordinary ensembles, they allow consumers to mix-and-match their personal style and play different roles that may not reflect their true personalities.

Cute Catvertising Hello Kitty collaborations allow brands to reach target groups Implications - Collaborating with Japanese company Sanrio—its Hello Kitty brand in particular—is becoming a major part of marketing as brands around the world use the pop culture icon to boost their branding. These product collaborations, which include everything from makeup and fashion to jewelry and gadgets, allow brands to not only expand on their product lines but appeal to consumer segments that they may never have been able to reach otherwise.

Geometry Class Sharp and origami-like designs pervade fashion accessories Implications - Throughout the years, geometry has been prevalent in fashion design, with apparel taking on sleek, origami-like proportions. Now, designers are turning to jewelry and accessories, infusing rings, earrings, necklaces and more with accents that are inspired by triangles, cubes and other sharp shapes. This geometric direction centers on the futuristic as well as the fundamental -- drawing on math to create precision in design -- and can be extrapolated to other industries such as housewares, furniture, tech design and more.
