We have another fabulous Catwalk Trend Report from our trend partner Adorn Insight, giving you a roundup of the Autumn/Winter 2014 jewellery catwalk trends that will be influencing buyers next season. Read the full report here.
This is an opportunity to embrace seasonality and up your offering of white gold and platinum for the AW14 season.
Explore simple shapes and use them as a starting point by repeating and combining. Incorporate fuss-free silhouettes and remember to keep things light and delicate on the fine jewellery front.
Fringed chain and bead strands are prime components here. Lariats and long drape earrings are key silhouettes to support this look and keep things fresh.
Stone encrusted jewels and big gems are a good starting point. Update your inventory with new gemstones in line with the season’s colour palette.
Taking a tip from the catwalks, focus more on outline and silhouette than extraneous surface detail. Celebrate clean lines and consider working up 2D shapes into 3D elements.
Use this opportunity to introduce key motifs such as birds and butterflies and remember that abstract interpretations that allude to flight are just as important.
