Forevermark Trends 2018

Be an industry trend leader and not a follower!

The term ‘Trend Forecasting’ can be very attractive with fancy mood boards, creative fonts, and crazy ideas but if studied carefully, they hold the power to enhance your business and make you an industry leader rather than a follower. Created in anticipation of future styles, they help in distinguishing temporary fads from more meaningful trends. Jewelry industry now has a few credible trend forecasters working tirelessly year on year, predicting trends much in advance so that jewelers can have them in stock when the right time comes.

One such team is based in Milan and works exclusively for Forevermark. Headed by Federica Imperiali, this New Product Develop team studies everything from the international fashion and art scenes to social movements, buying patterns, lifestyle choices to celebrity culture and create the Forevermark Trend Report that shapes the industry every year.

This report works as a guideline for all Forevermark jewelry manufacturing partners who with help of Federica and her team create innovatively and trend-conscious products year on year and so are their trends for 2018. These trends were presented by Forevermark at their recently concluded 7th Forevermark Forum, held in Delhi, wherewith the help of their jewelry partners over 2000 designs inspired from these four key trends were displayed.

“With the Forevermark Trend Report 2018 we have identified four key trends which will inspire jewelry collections combining timeless allure with contemporary appeal,” says Federica. “Each theme’s unique blend of imaginative aesthetics and emotional significance presents wonderful opportunities for the creation of new and exciting designs”.

This trend is for the woman who styles her jewelry with individuality and air. Unafraid to make a unique statement, she layers delicate rose gold pendants, stacks sparkling rings and, explores transformable earrings. Because she doesn’t play by the rules, this woman mixes modern and retro influences yet remains classically chic. Romantic silks and laces, worn with dazzling pear drop diamonds, lashings of rose gold bracelets, and a pair of crisp blue jeans are her effortlessly elegant wardrobe.

“In celebration of confident women who know what they want, and how they wish to look, Think Pink encourages the creation of singular jewelry statements, both in terms of the materials used, and the way the jewelry is worn,” says Federica.

In words of Federica, “Looking for a metaphor to convey the complexity of diamonds was no simple task but we found the perfect parallel in the concept of gardens which are simultaneously enchanting, resilient and filled with energy. Like the diamond, gardens epitomize nature at its most entrancing”.

‘Time Capsule’- Forevermark Trends Report 2018

TIME CAPSULE (Autumn)

At times, studying the end consumer’s age brackets can also help in defining trends. While we all love contemporary designs, our mothers always give in for designs with a hint of antique or history in it. Taking this as a cue, to begin with, the trend of Time Capsule aims to bring a whiff of fresh air to history.

, Forevermark Trend Report 2018, Victoria's Jewelry Box Jewelry is often influenced by years gone by as elements of heritage design are re-contextualized to create modern pieces. This approach is specialty fitting, for diamonds which, despite being billions of years old, appear sparklingly new. A finished piece of jewelry is defined simultaneously by a diamond’s unique characteristics and the historical references that underpin its design.

Time Capsule references the aesthetics of antiquity where the columns of Grecian temples and the curves of Roman urns are replicated in metalwork and into which diamonds are set. According to Federica, “Archival jewelry collections are a wonderful source of inspiration, with their wealth of history and craftsmanship, quintessential styles can be updated to suit modern tastes whilst preserving a sense of history.”

‘Game Of Shapes’- Forevermark Trends Report 2018

GAME OF SHAPES (Winter)

From Mother Nature to every man-made thing, geometry plays a crucial role. The symmetry that lies at the heart of every Forevermark diamond is the inspiration for this trend. If you ever attended an art or design school you would know, that every design, every sculpture, every idea takes birth inside a cube or a cuboid. Whilst the geometry of a diamond is wonderfully complex, simplicity is paramount for this trend.

From simple outlines to unexpected arrangements of contrasting forms and shapes can be applied to diamonds themselves, as well as their settings. Sleek pavé lines, or delicate square-top prongs, create a striking backdrop for a crisp round brilliant solitaires. Mean-while multiple cuts such as a pair of Square, Oval or Cushion cut diamonds surrounded by pave set round brilliants, show the sophistication that can be achieved when combining different shapes.

“Geometry, proportion, scale and, silhouette offer a variety of ways to adapt this trend which has a shape at its heart,” adds Federica.
