Jewelry fashion does not change as fast as the clothing fashion industry. What we do see is trends. The minimalist trend has been going strong for a couple of years and women in the Austin area as well as women that don’t like to be too flashy, have really embraced this fine jewelry look. We also have seen the layering of jewelry a style that is going strong.
What is new? The necklace trend has changed to large link chains and lots of them. They are available in yellow gold and a little less in sterling, white gold and rose gold. The other trend is the mixed metals! Wear your yellow, rose, and white gold together! The necklace links might be an open oval link or the popular Miami Cuban link and the bracelets are popular too. Five Star Jewelry carries a nice collection of link chains and mixed metals.
Secondly, is jewelry that has bumble bees, bugs, snakes, and birds. The lotus flowers is also popular! We have a beautiful bumble bee necklace that has a nice size ruby to go with it and small bumble bee earrings. We also have the lotus flower and tree of life earrings in sterling silver...very fashion forward!
More and more engagement rings are being designed and purchased with natural colored gemstones which is bringing the custom, one-of-a-kind to the forefront. Couples are getting really creative with engagement rings with starlight diamonds, uniquely cut diamonds, and shapes that are very different that the traditional wedding set.
These “hot” designs can be seen at Five Star Jewelry Brokers boutique showroom by making an appointment at 512-306-8200.
