All of the major players in the world of jewelry were in Las Vegas from June 4 â€“ 7 for North Americaâ€™s largest annual jewelry show, JCK Las Vegas. This yearâ€™s events, which also included Swiss Watch by JCK and Luxury JCK, broke attendance records, with 20% more retailers than last year. And of course, ICE.com was there, staying on top of the latest trends, and making the deals that will guarantee our customers the finest, hottest jewelry available over the next year.
So what were people talking about? The price of gold, of course, is on everyoneâ€™s minds. As it continues to skyrocket, and the economy continues to weigh on the minds of many customers, the worldâ€™s jewelers have been busy finding creative ways to bring the public gorgeous new products that are available in every buyerâ€™s price range. In many instances that means supplementing gold with other stunning metals. Everything from white tungsten, to steel to perennial favorite silver is being incorporated into the new designs.
That increasing use of white metals may explain the growing prevalence in black and white color schemes on everything from bracelets to necklaces to rings. And thanks to â€œSex and the City 2,â€ black diamonds are making a huge comeback. Combining those two hot trends, we found several gorgeous examples of black and white diamonds combined in gorgeous pieces that will be available very shortly on ICE.com.
Stay tuned for more video interviews, photos and coverage of the JCK Las Vegas Show.
