Just because we live island-style doesn’t mean we haven’t got our eye on the latest worldwide trends! Here at Grand Jewelers, we’re taking a close look at this year’s latest in glamour, style, and timeless romance. Get ready for a little bit of glitter – and some molten, minimalist chic thrown in.
Make A Statement
Keep your eye on the statement necklace, which continues to evolve as we march our way into the summer of 2017. This year’s hottest catch the eye in new ways, pairing funky shapes with muted colors: think Art Deco cool meets au natural. With plunging necklines on so many of this season’s runways, it’s no wonder that bold statement necklaces have recently settled in alongside the likes of Prada, Givenchy, and Chanel.
We Like It Cuff
We’re thrilled to see cuffs on this year’s most cutting edge runways. The iconic cuff takes new form with futuristic interpretations by Louis Vuitton, Loewe, and Courreges. Some of our favorites at Grand Jewelers mimic the unusual styling of today’s hottest cuffs: Sensual, modern lines in the Atlantico Wave Cuff come adorned with tiny, twisting pearls. Our romantic Triplicity Golden Cuff evokes the spiky styling of Egyptian royalty, and our Copley Cuff, resplendent with diamonds and offset by intricate wrought ironwork, will stop the show for decades to come. Both created by the always-elegant Hearts on Fire, these cuffs are meant to turn heads in 2017 – and for many decades to come.
Rose Is In
Just in time for a blushing springtime romance, rose gold makes the perfect gift in 2017, according to GIA, the world’s preeminent gemology research institution. “Rose gold combined with gemstones will be a big trend,” says Shayne Ebrahimi, social media manager at GIA. “Engagement rings that have colored gems as the center stone will also be trending,” Ebrahimi advises, and we’re thrilled to hear it at Grand Jewelers. We’ve got plenty of rose-gold settings just waiting to be inlaid with the gemstone of your choosing.
Keep it Minimal
Perhaps the oldest advice in the book remains the truest today as it did in 1917: When in doubt, keep it simple. There’s a certain elegance to letting one piece stand alone as a showstopper. Richard Shor, senior industry analyst at GIA, claims “individuality and understatement will continue to gain against the ‘bling.’” At Grand Jewelers, we’ve selected a range of settings and gemstones, as well as complete rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and timepieces, in order to help you select the pieces that you and your loved ones will cherish.
Ultimately, the trends we see again and again are the ones that showcase the beauty of the stone, the intricacy of the setting, or the gleam of platinum, silver or warm gold. We love to watch the trends reveal themselves on the runway every spring, but we also know that true style is reflected in the pieces we fall in love with. Let our friendly staff here at Grand Jewelers help you to select your perfect piece for 2017 – and beyond.
