Bold Colored Gems
Bright and vibrant colored gemstones that were big in past decades including pink, blue, orange and green, will make a resurgence. Gems will be large and accented with diamonds. One stunning suite chosen from the American Gem Trade Association is a 130-carat multicolored spinel necklace with a matching pair of 33-carat earrings from Somewhere In The Rainbow's collection. And, who could resist a pair of 30.07-carat sapphire earrings set in platinum from Shaftel Diamond Co., Tanzanite and diamond earrings from Takat Jewels will also be a popular choice on the red carpet.

Statement Cuffs
Chunky cuff styles with geometric shapes and vintage designs will be prevalent. Designers Metalsmiths Sterling and Thistle&Bee's Art Deco and Retro styles set in sterling silver definitely draw attention to the wrist when worn alone or stacked.
Mega Drop Earrings
While diamond studs will always remain a staple, we will see a return to oversized drop or chandelier earrings that practically touch the collarbone. Look out for the ultra-long Zambian emerald earrings from the Gemfields Collection.

Diamond Accented Watches
No longer are watches only reserved for men on the red carpet. The latest timepieces for ladies feature pave diamond encrusted dials and delicate leather straps, as designed by Marco Mavilla.

Sustainable Jewelry
Rio Tinto's Global Design Competition Winner V. Saravanan is showcasing a 100% sustainable necklace manufactured by Tanishq and Foley Designs. "The Creator" necklace is made from aluminum leaf, using ethically mined Silvermist Diamonds(TM).
Traditional square cufflinks are taking a backseat to styles with interesting patterns in contemporary metals. Designer Edward Mirell's pieces include woven detailing and black titanium.
