Smart Jewelers Make Happy Exhibitors
The Chicago Smart Show is April 13-15 on Navy Pier. I am in booth number 714. The Pantone color of the year is Emerald Green which has made all things green more popular this year. This includes gems, many of which I carry, such as emerald, tourmaline, peridot, green garnet and even green sapphire. Green has always been my favorite color and isn’t just strong in my collection now due to its popularity, I always try to have lots of greens in stock. But, in addition to greens, the colors trending heavily are very pastel – pinks and peach toned sapphires, spinel and morganite seem to be moving in larger volumes of late.
From where I sit, these are the hottest new bridal colors for engagement rings. I love this trend, they flatter almost everyone’s skin tones and large stones in general are very popular. I love working with cabuchons and have lots of them to offer. They provide a big pop of delicous mouthwatering color that never fails to catch the buyer’s eye. I hope you’ll come visit me at the show, I have lots to share and look forward to hearing from you.
