34 www.thejewelrybook.com BY ALLYSON BAINBRIDGE RICCARDI Going into show season, everyone wants to know what THE trend will be… yes statement earrings, yes chokers and long, layer-friendly necklaces. But really, the trend for jewelry is personalization – how can your customer identify with a piece, see it as something she can integrate into her wardrobe and lifestyle? Trust your instincts and your relationships with your customers, you know who they admire, who their style icons are. Authenticity and relatability are key; knowing the story behind your designers is crucial! If you fall in love with something special, tell your customers why you just had to have it, and they'll follow your expert lead. COLOR This season's Pantone® color selects offer a perfect mix of luxurious neutrals and splashy, vivacious tones. One is trans- ported to aspirational resort locations with watercolor-palette shades of bougainvillea, tropical seas, stone villas, palapas, verdant green… Not your typical gemstone colors, neces- sarily, but rather those of the rarer, more distinctive (and increasingly sought after) materials that will defi nitely invite a second look.
