Some of these trends have been around for awhile but I think we can all agree, they are not going anywhere soon.
1. The stackable/layered look
This trend is here to stay, it is still being seen everywhere. It allows such diversity and flexibility with an individual’s jewelry. The delicate or chunky look extends from rings, to bracelets and necklaces. It allows the consumer to buy and add or layer and delete.

2. Mixed metals
This trend continues to dominate. It is huge as we have seen it move into the bridal sector. It is something “a little different” and those millennial couples are embracing it. Pink gold and white metal dominates the mixed metal trend with pink gold being hot, hot, hot!!

3. Openwork Jewelry
Our third trend and one of the most prevalent trends of this year, is openwork jewelry. This ongoing trend is likely influenced by high precious metal prices. Openwork cuff bracelets are getting increasingly bigger and spread out to keep the metal weight down. An added benefit? More skin shows through.
Variations on the trend also can include rings and bracelets that wrap around the finger or wrist without meeting in the middle, and collars that remain open in the front of the neck, not completing the circle.

4. Black and white
Black and silver two tone metal combinations are all the rage. Brands like David Yurman, Lagos and Armenta all unveiled lines featuring blackened metals for fall/winter collections and many more are expected to follow in 2016.

5. Unique Stones
Look for different kinds of gemstones or gems set askew. In fashion jewelry look for fewer opaque stones as the style moves toward the use of more translucent or transparent gems. Look for unique gemstone shapes or cut in both colored stones and diamonds. Also, look for gemstones being set upside down or vertically compared to horizontally such as with a marquise or pear shaped stone.
