This years Editors Breakfast was a success thanks to all who attended! With the showroom filled with our designer’s newest pieces there was so much to see.

We are so thankful to have had yet another successful ENK Show! This past week, 16 of our designers displayed their newest pieces reflecting each of their one-of-a-kind styles. We had an amazing time working with both new and returning buyers who were just as excited about the jewelry as we are!

Color Story: Turquoise Jewelry

One of our favorite trends for summer is turquoise! The unique pop of color can transform a look, bringing it from bland to exciting with just a few accent pieces. Whether it be a small pendant necklace or a large cuff, the color can be found in any form and at any price point to accommodate your personal style. Here are a few of our top picks!

Summer Trends: Layering Necklaces

Layering has quickly become one of this summers hottest trends. Whether it be necklaces, bracelets or rings, we encourage everyone to pile the pieces on to make a unique statement with every outfit! Pieces like this Lena Skadegard necklace make pulling off this trend effortless, all the work is done for you!

You can also get creative by doubling up a long necklace and pairing it with a shorter one like these Mary Louise pieces.

We love this trend for its endless options and ability to fit any look and personality!

ACADEMY AWARDS 2014

Of course, our favorite thing about watching the Academy Awards is the stunning jewelry worn on the red carpet. This year, we sat down in front of our TVs with E! News, ready to watch the stars roll out. We’ve put together a list of some of our most coveted looks and hope you enjoyed them just as much! (all image credits are from Getty and Wire image.) 

 

Naomi Watts looked absolutely incredible! We loved her choice of the winter white trend, which was also worn by a few other celebs. However, THAT necklace really knocked it out of the park !

Another favorite styling moment of ours was of course the infamous, Angelina Jolie. The actress was supposedly wearing over 40cts of diamonds with those earrings. This close up shot really allows us to see the beauty and size of the stones.

We can’t forget about all of the jewels that Jennifer Garner stacked on her wrists and fingers. The pieces all complemented each other so well and looked perfect with her silver dress. The diamonds on all of the pieces are flawless!

Aside

Our founder & CEO, Janet Goldman, recently attended the Spring Fashion trunk show at Neiman Marcus and spent some time with the department store’s Fashion Director & Senior Vice President, Ken Downing. At the exclusive show, Janet got to see some of spring’s biggest upcoming trends first hand such as butterflies, black & white, fringe, mixed prints, shades of pink, and of course the “arm party.” Here are some images of Janet and Ken, along with model looks straight from the runway. We’ve also included some styles of these news trends available from our Fragments designers.

The Black & White trend is back again this season. We couldn’t help but think of how perfectly Miguel Ases new collection fits right in.

We also love how pink is going to be such a big color for spring, the various shades from Suzanna Dai give us the option to stay neutral or bring a pop into our wardrobe.
