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.
