A Look Back And A Guess At What’s To Come
We’re rounding up our 2019 and taking a look back at our best selling, and most talked about, pieces. And, we’re making a few predictions about what 2020 will have in store for us and for the jewelry industry as a whole.
2019 BEST SELLERS: from our new collections released during 2019
COIN PEARL NECKLACES: all metals
There is just something timeless and classic about pearls. But, these coin pearls are a fresh take on the old staple. Luminous and minimalistic, these necklaces can be dressed up or down and are great for layering. We think their versatility helped get them to the top our our 2019 Best Sellers list!
Which metal is your favorite?
SPARKLING SEA AQUAMARINE NECKLACE AND EARRINGS
This matching set was a big discussion piece at our shows. Summer crowds thought the aquamarines looked like water drops, while winter shoppers remarked on how the shape of the branch reminded them of snowflakes. Whichever your personal seasonal preference, you really can’t go wrong with these statement pieces.
Their bold, colorful elements and their deceptively lightweight, wear-all-day design made these stunners so popular. Sold separately, our customers were able to choose if they wanted an ear-moment or if their neckline was going to steal the show. We really don’t think there’s a wrong choice here.
But, for you short-haired babes, we’d nudge you toward the earrings!
AQUA DRUZY EARRINGS: all metals
Druzies are always a fan-favorite around here. But this year, our aqua sparklers stole the show. We love this color because, like the Sparkling Sea set (above), it translates into so many seasons. You’ll get Caribbean Beach vibes in the summer and Ice Queen chic in the winter.
2019 BEST SELLERS: From our perennial classics
CHAMPAGNE DRUZY EARRINGS
Our gold and rose gold metal variations on these classics were tied for sales this year. If you’re looking for a gift, or a “starter druzy” look no further than our champagne styles. They pair well with literally everything. Dress them up or down during any season of the year, you’ll always look effortless with a hint of sparkle.
CRYSTAL SPIKE AND PEARL NECKLACE: all metals
Another much-loved gifting piece. We’ve got a few color variations on this style and it’s popularity can be attributed to it’s “minimalist-with-a-pop” approach. A delicate crystal spike for all the good vibes right near your heart (minimalist) and a warmly glowing freshwater pearl that sits right on your collar bone (pop). Women of all ages often find themselves drawn to this necklace.
…like, seriously. The word “drawn” has been used multiple times at shows as customers talk about this must-buy piece.
CLASSIC PEARL NECKLACE
We’ll keep saying it as long as we need to: you can’t go wrong with pearls. Our classic pearl necklace is made with Swarovski pearls, so they are uniform in shape, weighty and luminous, but with a price tag that won’t have your grandma clutching hers!
POSY & PEARL EARRINGS
These sweet earrings remain popular for brides. Sometimes they’re customized! In fact, we’ve got a customization in the works, so stay tuned to the blog to see the reveal!
CRYSTAL SPIKE HAIR ACCESSORIES: comb & pin
Our hair pieces are much loved by brides (and hairstylists), but are often purchased at shows for women to wear on a more day-to-day basis. Mother’s love to gift them to their daughters, and with their heirloom quality it’s easy to see why. These hairpieces are a treasure.
2020 Style Predictions
We’ve been watching the trends as we’re dreaming up our new collections and pieces for this new year, and new decade too! And here’s a bit about what we’re predicting..
PEARLS CONTINUE TO TREND, WITH SOME FUNKY VARIATIONS
We’re seriously digging the shape & textures at play in the freshwater coin pearl jewelry from our 2019 collections. And our clients seem to agree! Whether your style is classic or adventurous, J’Adorn Designs will continue to be your go-to pearl jewelry source in 2020.
DRUZIES AREN’T GOING ANYWHERE
These rough-but-sparkly gemstones have been a staple ingredient for J’Adorn jewelry for over 5 years now, and they’re still going strong! We’re constantly innovating this fan favorite style, so be on the lookout for fresh colors, new gemstones pairings, and a wider variety of setting styles.
CRYSTAL QUARTZ WITH A DARK SIDE
Our crystal quartz spike accessories were strong sellers in 2019, and our clients are still loving this style heading into the new year (and decade!) And while we’ll continue to carry our feminine blush & white colored stones in this style, we’re seeing new interest in dark crystals. They’re extra edgy show-stopping pieces that we just can’t get enough of!
SILVER METALS MAKE A RETURN
In the 2010s, gold reigned supreme. Rose gold roared onto the scene and we fell in love with the warm tones – no longer reserved for our moms’ and grandmas’ jewelry.
We don’t see gold going anywhere, but we *have* been getting more requests for silver options at our pop-up shows. So, we’re predicting that silver jewelry will gain popularity in 2020. The set pictured here was specifically request by the Baltimore Museum of Art for their gift shop; apparently their customers are asking for the same thing!
We are looking forward to a sparkling first year in this new decade we find ourselves in. Excited for what’s to come is an understatement! Stay tuned and we’ll all see, together, if these predictions come true.
