The ‘memorable charms white heart’ is labelled as one of their best sellers and at just $25.95 (after a staggering 49% discount) I am not surprised at all! While the back of the charm is decorated with shining white gemstones, the space at the front is left vacant to insert a picture chosen by you!

Jewelry Trends: The Transformation of Pearls

In the fashion circles, new trends make wave now and then but there are several fashion jewelry fixes that just refuse to give way to the others. Pearl jewelry is one such jewelry trend that keeps getting stronger and stronger with each passing season. Since time immemorial, pearl has always signified grace, elegance and charms like none other. Its association with the royalty is also nothing new. However, what’s new is the fact that now pearl has come to be regarded as avant garde, contemporary and fashion-forward!

Going beyond the set traditional boundaries, jewelry designers have been experimenting with pearl in terms of colors, designs and style, like never before. Chanel’s 2014 runway outing was quite revolutionary in this regard where it’s oversized pearls became the hot favourites of all present and a rage in the fashion circle for some time to come. International brand Dior also plays a great part in making pearl a favourite of the fashion forward jewelry lovers across the world.

Its statement design with a small pearl resting on the ear and a bigger one peeping from behind the lobe inspired a large cache of imitations and copies that swarmed the markets and the World Wide Web. Another twist in this series was added by Stella McCartney during the 2015 runway outing. Its quirky pearl choker was so revolutionary that it looked almost like a sculpture on the neck! Such experiments by huge names in the designer circle have ensured that much attention is diverted towards pearl, and more and more designers are inspired to work differently with it.

Blurring Line Between Fashion And Fine Jewelry

The market has also witnessed a doubling in the shares of branded jewelry since 2003 and this is expected to witness an unprecedented growth henceforth. Various consumer behaviours have been studied to arrive at factors that would propel the growth for branded jewelry internationally. Established brands are known to be trustworthy and provide emerging-market consumers with a sense of an elevated lifestyle. Consumers with ‘new money’ also come to prefer branded jewelry as it gives them an opportunity to flash their new found wealth. The young consumers have a penchant for branded jewelry as they consider it to be a mean of self expression.

In the past decade, online jewelry sale has picked up amid international consumers and the rise is expected to double by 2020 (from 5% to 10%). The share of online sale of fashion jewelry would obviously be slightly higher than for fine jewelry as fine jewelry is expensive and people still prefer buying them from brick-and-mortar stores where they can touch and feel the finery prior to buying it. Jewelry industry also cannot underestimate the power of social media which can be the best platform for them for building customer relationship and establishing a brand identity.

The other recent factor to consider for retailers is the blurring line between fashion and fine jewelry. People are now buying fine jewelry for themselves, which was mostly meant for gift purchase at one point in time. Also, while fashion jewelry is being sold by international brands for thousands of Dollars, one can easily acquire fine jewelry at a bargain. Jewelry brands and retailers need to consider these factors and capitalise on them to shine brighter and grab a larger share of the jewelry market in the time to come.

White Metals: The Hot New Trend

Different metals have gained popularity at different seasons. While gold, the yellow metal, has been successful in maintain its stronghold in the jewelry industry since time immemorial, white metals have started vying for attention since last few years and are fast catching the fancy of jewelry connoisseurs across the globe.

The ever increasing demand for the white metals has not gone unnoticed by jewelry makers and special attention is being paid to come out with ranges that accommodate these specific metals, including silver, platinum, white gold, palladium and titanium.

In comparison with the yellow gold, white metals are seen as being modern and avant-garde amongst the young buyers.

Economic factors too are playing their part in these shifting dynamics. As prices of gold and platinum almost touching the roof, jewellers and buyers have shown a greater affection towards other metals like silver, titanium and stainless steel.

The metals works well with almost anything and everything, including pearl, coral, shell and other precious stones. For the young jewelry buyers who love adorning understated finery, silver is the ideal metal.

It is subtle, simple and almost never goes over-the-top! Its versatility also springs from the fact that is quite an easy metal to work with. It can be effortlessly moulded around abstract stones to create exquisite and unique jewelry pieces. Lower price of silver was the most favouring factor initially, until the metal revealed its adeptness at being easily wrapped around colored gemstones of varied kinds. Today, gemstones-encrusted sterling silver jewelry is quite a hot trend that shows no sign of diminishing anytime soon.

jewelry is fun to wear. It can look casual paired with a t-shirt and skinny jeans, or a a bit more elegant worn with your summer maxi dress and cute floppy straw hat. The simplicity of jewelry comes with the idea that you can change out the snaps to match your outfit, mood, or personality.
jewelry has two components: jewelry findings and charms. Jewelry findings have a button-like compartment where you insert the charms. charms have a nub on the back that SNAPS into the jewelry finding. There are hundreds of charms to choose to mix and match with a large variety of jewelry findings.

To remove or change out the snaps, you can use your fingers to pry them off. However, because charms are meant to secure in place once snapped in, sometimes prying them off with your fingers may be difficult. We suggest that you take an old library card or sturdy flat card and wedge it under the charm. Give it a twist and it should POP right out! Now you are ready to recreate a new jewelry style.

Jewelry Photography – The Right Camera for You

More and more questions about how to photograph jewelry. It’s been a while since we tackled this tough topic so we thought it was a good time to review the basics: Equipment, Lighting, and Composition. We will give you tips and tricks to make your images beautiful as well as links to equipment suppliers and other helpful info.  This is a deep subject with many different approaches so this will be an ongoing series. Ready? Let’s Go!

Which Camera is Right for You?

There are many options for cameras on the market and each has pros and cons. The following is an overview of Smartphone, Point and Shoot and DSLR Cameras. Choose what is best for your budget and experiment with it to get the best results.

Point and Shoot Camera

Another great option for your jewelry photos is a compact digital Point and Shoot Camera. They are small, lightweight, typically inexpensive and very easy to use.  Just as their name implies, they are designed for you to point and shoot! These cameras are mainly meant to be used in “auto” mode, letting the camera make all of the decisions for you. There are basic manual controls that can be changed but quite often they are hidden in menu systems and are not easily accessible. Some come with a Macro setting which is great for close up shots of jewelry. Many of the affordable Point and Shoots only come with a fixed lens, which means it is a Digital Zoom. Newer, more expensive Point and Shoot models have an Optical Zoom Lens. Another point worth mentioning is that most P &S Cameras have a massive depth of field, meaning that they typically cannot separate foreground from background. This means everything is in focus…which is great….except when you want to create a little “bokeh.” (Bokeh is that beautiful blur quality produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image.) Similar to Smart Phones, Point and Shoot Cameras also have a smaller sensor than DSLR cameras and therefore do not take as high of quality images. They are fine for everyday use and posting things online but not the best option for print work or professional publications. The newest generation of Point and Shoot Cameras are equipped with Super Zoom Optical Lenses and larger Image Sensors. These newer models are fairly expensive compared to more basic compact models.
