A widespread trend for today’s fashionista is the mixing and matching of various styles, colors, metals, and gemstones. And this fall, the pairing of two mismatched earrings is flirting with tradition. The lopsided lobe trend of mismatched ear embellishments such as one moon and one star, or a gold and diamond chandelier swaying on one lobe while the other is adorned by a single gemstone stud is becoming increasingly popular. Ear climbers, and ear cuffs are still hugely popular with millenials. Pulling off any of these trendy looks is simply about having fun and expressing oneself.

Trending necklaces remain to be the subtle and simplistic layering of two or more strands or styles of karat gold or silver. We are seeing lots of delicate necklaces layered with different stones, dainty diamonds, and creative shapes. Crescent moon shapes, hamsa hands, horns, and arrows are being featured on many designs. Geometric charms are also being seen dangling from simple chokers and collars to create a clean chic look. In addition, stackable rings, bangles, and cuffs set with richly colored gems also lend themselves to fashionable layering. Today, many jewelry designers are mixing various gem colors, cuts, carat weights, and shapes to provide many new and exciting combinations that might not normally be seen together. These can add more character and interest than perfectly matched gems.

What’s New In Necklace Trends

This Season there lots of emerging necklace trends. Although ultra-long necklaces of multi-strand gold chains are still popular, there’s a growing trend toward more decorative necklace designs this Spring season. These necklace trends include the bib, lariat, “Y” and choker styles.

Bib Necklaces. Bib necklaces are a huge trend this year! With their light, airy look of lace and mesh, bib necklaces have a lot of volume without looking sensuous, fabric-like feel and are composed of delicate festoons of three or more strands of gold or sterling mesh. They can also display cascades of pearls, faceted colored gemstones, or nets of sparkling diamonds.

Gold and Citrine Lariat Necklace

Lariat Necklaces. The Lariat necklace trend is huge this year. These open-ended, long strand designs have decorative ends and are looped or knotted, not clasped. They spotlight individually and allow wearers to determine the length. Lariats can be made of white or yellow gold chain, sterling silver or leather, and are frequently brightened with pearls, diamonds or colored gemstones.

Top Ten Things to Consider When Selling Your Gold and Precious Metals

tipsgforgold

As one of Houston’s Top Gold Buyers, we want our consumers to be well informed to make the best financial decisions when selling their gold. Your prized possessions that are now outdated, broken, or are unable to be passed down to younger generations can generate extra money in your pocket. Whether you are selling Gold, Platinum, Sterling Silver or your loose diamonds, Houston Jewelry is the perfect place to go.

Here are a few tips to consider before selling your Gold or Precious Metals:

1. Prices are calculated based on current market value. This value can fluctuate daily, as well as hourly. When selling your items it is advised to check the current market prices before you come in to sell your items.

2. The metal content and weight of your items are considered in the price. It is imperative that when selling your items you go to a location that has the proper equipment to evaluate both of these factors.

3. If your items include diamonds or precious stones, there is a chance your items will be more valuable, this also applies to pieces that may be considered categorically vintage, designer, or collectable.

4. It is important to find a buyer who can test your metal. At Houston Jewelry, we use an instrument called a Spectrometer. This instrument can tell us the exact metal content and karat of your pieces.

5. It is important to go to a buyer who follows the guidelines and laws of their respective city, state, and all Federal regulations.

6. Take into consideration that most establishments will purchase your items with the intent of melting it down. If your item is sentimental you should reconsider selling it as once it is melted you will not be able to get it back.

7. Although your item may seem worth an enormous amount to you, it is essential that as the consumer you understand you will not be offered retail value in most scenarios.

8. We encourage consumers to visit more than one gold buyer when considering selling their metals. This will ensure that you are getting the best price for your items.

9. When selling your items you may want to inquire ahead of time the method of payment you will receive for your metals. Some people pay cash, while others strictly issue checks.

10. The law requires that you will need identification to sell you items, and it is advised that if you have paperwork, certificates, or receipts for your items you should bring them to the transaction as this information may increase the final price.
