The only thing hotter than scorching Las Vegas temperatures last week was the action inside the Mandalay Bay Convention Center for JCK 2016.
The world’s largest jewelry show is not only an opportunity to scope some of the most luxurious accessories on the planet, but also to get a first look at emerging jewelry movements. The geometrical designs and stylish symbolism were the clear stand-out trends of the event.
Designers took geometrical shapes to the next level this year at JCK with designs that made true style statements and blurred the boundaries between jewelry and art.
We loved the new edgy, unexpected silhouettes and blunt, streamlined shapes.
This Round Diamond Micropavé Halo Cuff Bracelet turned heads with ornate architecture and luxe details.
Show-stopping color was front and center on almost every display. From traditional emeralds and sapphires to unexpected pink and canary diamonds, attendees were dazzled by a rainbow of colored gems.
Even men’s jewelry highlighted this trend with the prevalence of black diamonds in wedding bands.
The Ritani Sapphire and Diamond Halo Bracelet got plenty of looks at the JCK show.
It was clear at JCK that the devil is in the diamond design details. People want a personal touch that differentiates their pieces from the masses. After all, jewelry is more than just an accessory — each crafted detail carries meaning.
The event showcased unexpected pieces, from a one-of-a-kind pearl headpiece and exotic brooches, to elegant engagement rings that are more than what meets the eye. If you look closely at this ring below, you will see it has “hidden” diamonds laying beneath the surface sparkle!

“Halo” From the Other Side
The ever-popular halo had a huge presence in designer showcases at JCK, but this trend wasn’t relegated to just engagement rings.
We saw designers take this look beyond rings and feature earrings, necklaces and bracelets adorned with the ethereal style.
This ring was a showstopper at the JCK convention.
One of the most popular styling trends at JCK was the prevalence of chic stackable jewelry. From bracelets to rings, we saw this wearable trend mix metals and textures to create major jewelry moments.
This trend even extends to engagement and wedding rings, where people use stacks to create a truly custom look.
Check out these versatile stackable rings that can be used to mix and match for an effortlessly chic look.
