12 Las Vegas Jewelry Trends, No. 10, Block Party: Color-Blocked Jewels Rachet Up Jewelry’s Whimsy Factor

Andrew Glassford Jawbreaker ring with gemstones

New York City, May 22, 2019. Color-blocking in jewelry typically means pairing up complementary colors of jewels with couturiers’ latest frocks, but jewelry designers are taking the term to a uniquely bejeweled level by wedding vibrant rocks and maker effects in single pieces. From enamel to colorized titanium to multicolored compositions of vivid gemstones, color-blocked jewels inspire smiles, remind us to wear our pieces for maximum enjoyment (why buy jewels if they’re going to remain in a safe?), and show us that jewelry is our wearable candy—pleasing to view, uplifting to the soul, and leaving a wake of wonder, delight, and joyful vibes in its rearview mirror. Calling all collectors—color-blocked numbers provide an instant pick-me-up in the form of rainbow-hued revelry that never ends.

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.
