Be it jewellers, retailers or consumers, everyone waits with bated breath for the fashion jewelry trend forecast that influences the end-customers, as well as the jewelry industry in general. The fashion jewelry trends of 2016 are a take-off from the past that links the traditional with the present, and in some cases future as well. Along with paying homage to the designs of the yore, the modern trends are influenced by the new technology and innovative, forward-looking ideas.
‘Magic’ is the latest trend that has taken the fashion jewelry industry by a storm. Catapulting the jeweller and the goldsmith to the position of master magicians, this new trend gives a new lease of life to the gemstones through varied cuts, shapes and facets to create a delightful illusion. Playing with exceptional hues displaying light and shadow, this trend focuses on the use of materials like zirconia, blue sapphire and marcasite, along with opal and pearl.
Body art is another fresh trend that is slated to make it big in the fashion jewelry market in seasons to come. Viewing the body as a canvas to adorn, this trend has brought forth into the market an array of headpieces, body chains, hand ornaments and ear cuffs. This kind of fashion jewelry is created keeping in mind the cuts and curves of a human body.
The exciting new trend of ‘Eternity’ focuses on the infinitude of heritage and tradition, and the desire of the mortals for immortality forms its core. It draws from a lavish color palette that plays with electric blue and greens and mixes it with other warmer tones. Here one can also witness an exciting coming together of the modern technology with traditional jewelry making techniques.
