12 Las Vegas Jewelry Trends, No. 1, Pest Controls: Jewelry Designers Extol the Beauty of Bugs

New York City, May 9, 2019. As we head into warmer months, a fresh crop of bug jewels is emerging from hibernation. Jewelry designers are taking inspiration from all types of winged things and arthropods—from fireflies to bees, butterflies, and more. Jeweled creatures remind us of nature without the pesky realities associated with being outdoors (no bug spray, please!). And no one wants to bring home an uninvited house guest, unless, of course, it’s of a bejeweled variety. Exterminators take note: your services are not needed for this welcome infestation.

Editor’s Note: We are counting down the days to the most important jewelry trade shows in North America (happening in late May and early June in Las Vegas) with 12 days of jewelry trends! These trends are based on what’s been appearing in the market lately, what was on display at other recent fairs, and what designers say they’re making for the next shows.

  • I love cute motifs in jewelry because they keep pieces lighthearted and fun. @morganpatricialove has a good sense of humor in her creations. Loving the sweet little pineapples here, and the pearl bum pendants on the next screen. What maker with a sense of wit and whimsy do you like and why?

  • This beauty is from my favorite Brazilian brand, @hueb. I handled this aquamarine and diamond number at Couture and haven’t stopped thinking about it. I think it’s time to revisit it at their Manhattan showroom. What do you think?
