Unveiling the Fashion Jewelry Trends 2016

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.

Glamulet Jewelry

‘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.

DIV Charms

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.

7 Easy Steps to Buy Sterling Silver Jewelry

Step 1

Zero in on a shop from where you wish to buy your silver jewelry. Do not blindly trust any fancy jewelry or antique store as marketing gimmicks alone do not make one a reliable and trustworthy retailer in this industry.

Step 2

Selecting the right piece of jewelry is quite a tedious task! Even Instinctive buyers take their time when buying jewelry as it is not just expensive but a timeless keepsake. Keep in mind the longevity of the design, as well as your personal style when buying sterling silver jewelry. Just a handy tip, do not blindly follow the latest fashion trends when buying pure metals as they cannot be discarded with the arrival of the new and wading of the old.

Step 3

After selecting the right piece, get all vital information about the design and the metal used in that particular piece from the salesperson or the jeweller. All these details will get you an idea about that piece’s durability and worthiness.

Step 4

Examine carefully the jewelry piece you are interested in purchasing. Its careful examination will help you reveal its craftsmanship, weight, intricacies of design, as well as flaws and tarnishes if any.

Step 5

Locating the hallmark on your silver jewelry is your next most important step. A hallmark is the sign of a true metal and a proof of its genuineness. If you are not able to locate this mark, ask the jeweller to help you find the same. Do not buy any sterling silver jewelry without the .925 hallmark.

Step 6

If you have a penchant for designer stuff, you’d know how to tell the fake from the originals. Your jeweller would definitely know about the designer of the particular piece of jewelry you chose. However, in most cases you might not need ask as the designer’s labels are proudly flaunted on the jewelry.

Step 7

Make your purchase and voila! You’re done! Adorn that classic shiny piece of sterling jewelry at the next soiree and be the glittering diva of the evening!

wildlife and western style jewelry line

Bracelet

We are so excited to announce the launch of our odeliafarms Blog! After more than a decade of designing our premier horse, wildlife and western style jewelry line, we decided we needed a place to share the trends, people, music, lifestyles and cultures that inspire who we are and the jewelry we create.

Meet odeliafarms

The best way to start things off is probably to introduce ourselves.

What is odeliafarms.com?

odeliafarms.com is the exclusive line of horse, wildlife and western style jewelry designed by creative designer Kerstin Stock. Based in Denver, Colorado, our jewelry is inspired by the west and created for the western rider, wildlife woman or horse-loving girl. All of our pieces are original designs and made with the highest quality materials. They’re nickel-free, lead-free and hypoallergenic. odeliafarms.com has the perfect jewelry for any style and budget — and make for perfect gifts for any girl or woman in your life…or the perfect gift for yourself!

Who is Sharen Stock?

Hi, I’m Saren…and I’m the owner and creative designer of odeliafarms.com, as well as Wyo-Horse, a wholesale jewelry line for retailers. I started Wyo-Horse nearly 12 years ago with the goal of creating fashionable yet affordable horse, wildlife and western jewelry for young girls and woman who love the west as much as I do! After much success, I decided I wanted to sell directly to customers like you. I wanted to get more direct inspiration and feedback from you for each of my pieces. Thus, odeliafarms.com was born. I hope you’ll enjoy browsing and shopping the odeliafarms line, and reading our new blog!

What makes odeliafarms different from other western style jewelry lines?

We know there are several other places you could shop for western stye jewelry, but we think we’re unique in our designs, quality and customer service. Owner Kerstin Stock has a hand in every aspect of the business — and holds herself, her partners and suppliers, and her employees to the highest standards. She pours her heart and soul into the designs of each piece. Living in Denver, Colorado (and spending several weeks a year in Wyoming, and traveling around the West), she’s a true Western woman, and that’s clearly conveyed in the style and detail of each piece of jewelry.

What will you be writing about on the blog?

We love all things western, wildlife and horses — so we’ll be writing about that. Basically, things that inspire us, make us laugh, make us cry and make us think. And our hope is that you’ll also be inspired and entertained along the way…

Now Tell Us About You…

Now that we’ve told you a bit about us, we’d LOVE to hear a bit about you, so leave us a comment and tell us what you love about horses, wildlife and western life!

Holiday Shopping at Square Market

holiday sale1Your holiday shopping was never easier than visiting us at Square Market.   You can purchase many of our products online. If you don’t see what you’re looking for please email us.  We are happy to custom that special gift! If you’ve ever wanted to start your own alpaca herd now is the time to do it! We are slashing prices and offering 30% off on any of our alpacas! This is a great time to check out our young maidens, proven females or even our males. We have time-tested bloodlines with females that have given us lovely crias and yarns that have been soft, lustrous and easy to process. We began our small farm in 2005, with just two young females.   One was bred and due to have a baby in a week or so.  Within a few days, we had three female alpacas!  We were so thrilled to finally get our new girls home and begin our journey with these incredible animals.

holiday sale

We never knew how much we would need to learn about animal husbandry, fiber, and running a small farm.  Over the years, we’ve studied bloodlines and learned how to make better breeding decisions.   We’ve tried to improve our little herd each year by breeding a couple of our girls to top herdsires with time tested lineage.  In a few short years, we have watched our alpacas and our fleeces become finer, and more lustrous. Each year we have opened our barn doors to the community by offering farm festivals.  In May, we shear our alpacas and harvest our year’s crop of fine fleece.  If you are interested in volunteering for this event, we would appreciate the help.   Jobs range from sorting fleeces to helping clean alpacas before they go to the shearing table and everything in between.  It’s a fun day with great community participation. The last weekend in September we host Alpaca Farm Days inviting the community to learn more about alpacas.   We also have fiber demonstrations, fine alpaca wear on display in our boutique room and lots more.   Each year we try to make the event a bit different, with music, refreshments and fun! If you are even remotely interested in alpacas or running a small farm, alpaca farming may be just for you.   Feel free to contact us to come out and visit the farm.   We would be happy to give you a tour and introduce you to our small herd.  Bring the family and especially the kids!
