Unless you’re an industry insider, you’ve probably never heard of JCK Las Vegas. It’s the leading jewelry trade show in North America, a four-day event held annually in Las Vegas, NV that showcases industry trends and jewelry designers from around the world. Fred Meyer Jewelers sent a team to the Las Vegas Valley to bask in the bling. Jewelry buyer Kacie Capellas shared her notes.
According to Capellas, unique engagement rings had a huge presence at JCK Las Vegas 2015. More brides-to-be are opting for something other than the colorless-solitaire-in-platinum, and the industry has responded by adding more unique styles to their assortments.
When it comes to diamonds, there’s a crayon box of colors to choose from. From bowtie black to electric blue, brides-to-be are adding color to their bridal baubles, and the result is nothing short of stunning. Don’t get us wrong; we have as much love for a VVS1 colorless as we do for a candy apple red one. (We’ll take ‘em both.) The bottom line is: We like options. Who doesn’t like options?!
Engagement rings aren’t the only thing brides-to-be are seeing in color; anniversary bands and wedding rings lend color to this season’s look books and bridal guides. We like. What do you think? Would you do timeless with a twist?
