In an industry that changes by the season, it is important for retailers to keep up with jewelry trends and styles on the street, on the runway, and on celebrities that inspire your customers. While some of the more high-fashion pieces may not be in your budget, there are ways to market the same on-trend looks for less by taking advantage of both wholesale prices and getting a little creative. These three fashion jewelry trends are poised to become all the rage this fall, and as a little extra we have thrown in some ideas on how you can get the looks for less.
Bold in Gold
There is no doubt about it, gold is back and the bigger the better. From gold chain bracelets to gold statement necklaces, the runway definitely had a metal preference for the upcoming season, with powerhouse Moschino even using gold jewelry as a defining characteristic of their Fall collection. Movie star Katie Holmes is often seen in her simple gold chain necklace with initial monogram pendant, an easy and fashion forward way to personalize your products. Singer Rihanna frequently takes the look to a more daring level and is often photographed wearing layered gold chains, hoop earrings, and thick gold bracelets. Olympia Gold offers PermaGold chain jewelry by-the-inch which will help you to re-create these key looks at a fraction of the price.
Luxury in Leather
Leather pieces were big last year, but this Fall the look is expanding to include jewelry and accessories. For their 2014/2015 collections, Louis Vuitton displayed eye-catching leather collars, and Fendi took the trend a step further by embellishing their leather cuffs with soft fur. Using Olympia Gold pre-made bracelets, cuffs, and the fashionable Katie Ko designs collection, you can create one-of-a-kind leather pieces that your customers won’t find anywhere else.
Captivating in Crystal
While the celebrities and runways have been dripping in bold looks of gold and leather, crystal embellished jewelry took over the other side of the spectrum bringing in softer, brighter looks to center stage. Dolce & Gabbana perfected the look with ethereal, fairytale-like crystal flowered necklaces, hair pieces, and even dresses. A-lister Blake Lively is no stranger to the sparkle, and is often seen on the red carpet using sparkling studs or layered necklaces to complete her look. While crystal may seem like a large investment for your Fall collection, using PermaCrystal by-the-inch or cheaper crystal alternatives, you can achieve this high glam look on any budget.
