Style and design are two things that help us to choose everything from our clothes, to home linen, furnishings and our jewelry. Accessories are a very important thing that can transform even the dullest wardrobe and no outfit is complete without some type of jewelry. But you don’t want to look dated, so keeping up with the trends, especially with jewelry, is a good way to get a look that exudes style and class.
Swarovski Gems have released their annual report-Gem Visions, in which they have listed and analyzed all the jewelry trends that are expected to be big in 2014. It has also showcased a breathtaking collection of jewelry designs that feature a lot of gemstones that will be the center of most conversations. The collaborative report also includes inspirations and design directions. The 2014 publication of Gem Visions will encourage ingenious concepts, trends that they believe will give people some rather surreal, thought provoking and enigmatic stories that they can share.
Their findings are based on the insights from industry insiders, historians and jewel experts; the company has come up with new designs that are the result of a project that involves getting experts from across the globe to match colors, gemstone cuts and materials along with the Swarovski gems to create the design directions of 2014. These designs will be featured in the publication.
The company experts have narrowed their focus on gemstones but have also renewed their interests in traditional stones like rubies, emeralds and sapphires, which have lead to a creative excitement.
