Jewelry trends typically are forecasted from the three R’s: Red Carpet, Runway & Real Life. Here is a quick list of trends the Mokada ladies think you should be looking for in 2013.
Shine bright like an emerald. Pantone just named emerald the colour of the year and we’ve already seen stars hit the red carpet fashioning this brilliant gem. International mining firm Gemfields is aiming to do what De Beers has done for diamonds; making the emerald a standard household item. Emeralds and rubies are the second hardest gemstone next to a diamond and make ultra unique engagement rings for those looking to break the mould.
Snakes and social ladders. Love it or hate it, we’re going to snakes trickle down from the red carpet. Rachel Weisz shines in Bulgari’s Serpenti Collection this runway season. She’s often the face of classic beauty and we love how she’s showing off her edgy side in jewel adorned serpents. Watches, arm bands, bracelets and even clutches have taken shape to our slithery friend… And we love it.
Stacking, stacking, stacking. The “stackables” ring trend has been around for the past few years but this year we are seeing it more than ever. One of my favourite new trends for this year is the knuckle ring. Stacking a mixture of gold, fashion and thin rings and topping the look off with a few tiny rings on the your first knuckle is a perfect hipster-chic combination. We’ll also see the colour blocking trend move to your arm candy.
