After reading Angie’s recent post on big earrings, I was curious to see which other trends are making waves in the jewellery world this year:
- Luxury body jewellery is piquing the interest of consumers and global retailers.
- Six New Yorkers tell us why they got their septum rings.
- Meet Summera Shaheen who customizes watches and creates jewellery for many of the world’s professional soccer players.
- StyleCaster is impressed with these three Canadian jewellery designers.
- They also rounded up five affordable minimalist jewellery brands.
- Bold statement earrings were all over the Spring/Summer 2016 runways.
- Asymmetry and mismatched earrings have never been chicer too.
- T Magazine deputy editor Hanya Yanagihara explains the underrated pleasure of wearing jewellery made just for you.
- Nordstrom interviews designer Eddie Borgo about his edgy accessories.
- The New York Times reports that haute jewellery is hot.
- At the same time, affordably priced fine jewellery with an “easy-to-wear sensibility” is in high demand as well.
- And a practical tip: How to clasp a bracelet without the help of a second person.
