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.

An Inside Peek at ENK

The ENK Accessorie Circuit just wrapped up, and we’re still swooning over the all of the amazing new jewels we saw!

Our designers never fail to impress us with their new collections, and this year was no different. Some of our favorite pieces were the skinny open cuffs from Kismet, Azaara, Mary Louise Designs, Suzanne Kalan, Melinda Maria and Susan Hanover. They looked gorgeous stacked up with more classic pieces or alone for a simpler look.

Piles of delicate rings and hand adornments were another big trend this season. Kismet and Nuugard showed some beautiful hand bracelets, and Melinda Maria’s gemstone rings were show favorites.

Our designers are often inspired by nature, and this season Kevia and Azaara both showed some great pieces featuring all manner of creatures, from rabbits and starfish to elephants and rhinoceros!

New Faces at Fragments

My favorite part of my work is discovering and supporting talent in the jewelry world–every season it always amazes me how many incredible new designers emerge with gorgeous collections and new points of view. This spring we welcomed many new and wonderful designers to our boutique and website, and I’d love to share them with you.

Eddie Borgo

Triangle Collar, $390

Eddie Borgo was the darling of this year’s Met Gala with his modern punk designs, which graced the likes of Hailee Steinfeld, Sienna Miller, and Cara Delevigne. His sleek cuffs, spiky earrings and stunning collars will add the perfect bit of sparkle and edge to any wardrobe.

Elizabeth Cole

Lemon Mohawk Earrings, $240

Lemon Mohawk Earrings, $240

Bold, bright and beautiful are how we would describe Stephanie Owen’s Elizabeth Cole line, though there’s so much more to say about her vintage-inspired statement pieces. With an of-the-moment palette of colors and silhouettes that are universally gorgeous, the line has something perfect for everyone.

Syna

Syna Champagne Diamond Bauble Bangle, $4,000

Syna Champagne Diamond Bauble Bangle, $4,000

Syna means “together”, and the husband and wife team behind this New Jersey-based line are a perfect pair. Dharmesh and Namrata started their jewelry business in 2003 shortly after moving to America from their native India. Since then, they’ve created a colorful line of gemstone pieces that are as sweet as they are collectible.

Vita Fede

Rose Titan Bracelet, $275

Rose Titan Bracelet, $275

Cynthia Sakai’s Vita Fede line has gained a cult following since 2009, and with good reason–their sleek Titan, Cubo, Cono and Circolo bracelets are available in any color you could ever need and are perfectly wearable everyday and for every occasion. Here at Fragments we haven’t taken ours off yet!

Zeira

Oxidized Silver and White Topaz Mehndi Earrings, $995
