Natural Diamond Council Unveils Holiday Diamond Jewelry Trends |  October 27, 2021 (0 comments)


New York, NY—The Natural Diamond Council has launched its latest book of diamond jewelry trends, for holiday 2021. The trends are projected by NDC’s Style Collective, a team of seven of the jewelry industry’s leading voices across retail, media, and fashion, including celebrity image architect Law Roach; Elizabeth Von der Goltz, chief commercial officer, MATCHESFASHION; Will Kahn, editor and stylist and creator of @willsnotebook; jewelry historian and author Marion Fasel, founder and editorial director of The Adventurine; Jennifer McCurry, jeweler, gemologist and buyer for Naples, FL retailer Marissa Collections; longtime jewelry editor Jill Newman, NDC’s editor-at-large; and Rachel Garrahan, jewelry and watch director at British Vogue.

As diamond jewelry sales continue to break records throughout 2021, NDC expects a “sparkling” holiday season and encourages retailers to be ready with the right on-trend designs.

Let’s Play. “People want to find joy in their jewels now more than ever, and these exuberant styles deliver,” says Fasel. Diamond whistles, themed earrings or cufflinks, or even a ring whose diamond “laces” resemble a football all fit the bill: 

Two Stone Rings. Fasel says two-stone rings have become a “glorious alternative” to the single center stone. The most modern styles are open between the two stones:
