Jewelry Trend 2006 Reviewed

Going along with my theme of looking back at 2006 and sort of also looking forward to 2007, I wanted to take a moment and consider some of the jewelry trends we've seen over the past year.

First, thanks to Johnny Depp, we have had lots of pirate jewelry. This was very much due to his second Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Of course, there is a third episode coming out in 2007, but some how I get the feeling we won't see a lot of this next year. It was fun, but I don't think it's here to stay.

Then there was Keepsake type jewelry, items such as lockets and photographs incorporated into jewelry designs that invoked memories. I think anything connected with the idea of memories and nostalgia will stick around next year.

Circles, circles and more circles. We saw them in diamond jewelry. We saw them in the form of chains and links. The circle was "in" this year.


Another big diamond trend was the Journey Diamond design, followed by the same look in pearls.

Jewelry components such as beading are also makes its way to clothing thanks to designers such as Mark Badgley and James Mischka.


Finally, a big trend this year that I also expect to see around in 2007 is mixed media. Companies like Juniper Designs and 3-Sisters Jewelry will continue to surprise us with unlike items in our jewelry designs, teaming up beads with the everyday.
