A few weeks back, I attended the Women’s Jewelry Association In the Know conference here in New York City.
After leading a (splendid) talk on what editors like to see from designers, I had the chance to take in the last session of the conference, which also happened to be the final of three keynote speakers: Jennifer Hyman, CEO of Rent the Runway.
Simple studs and gold-toned and geometrically shaped jewelry appeared to be the common factor at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, held Sunday at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
While J. Lo wore bold gold hoops and gold bracelets and rings by Chimento, others kept it simple; Scarlett Johansson donned gold drop earrings, and Brittany Snow accessorized with geometric ear climbers.
Ever since I started at National Jeweler and began learning more about the auction world as we covered results from Bonhams, Sotheby’s, Christie’s, and more, I’ve been intrigued by it. By what drives people to buy, why they’ll spend a certain amount, what ends up being really popular and what that means for trends.
