The first big trend is a direct result of ongoing changes in consumer behavior mixed with the absurd reality we have all experienced in the past 2 years living with a pandemic. Jewelry is so meaningful for people. No one needs it, but we long for it, our talisman, our tangible memory of loving moments and people in our lives. I think that we'll long even more for jewelry in the future. But we need to adapt. This is the first of a series about mega trends in jewelry and for the jewelry industry.

Men have worn jewelry throughout history, there is literally nothing new under the sun when it comes to trends and jewelry. However, a new cultural wave is taking the world by storm. Diversity and inclusivity are literally on every big company's marketing agenda and when we look at the future by talking to GenZ, we understand that gender isn't set in stone anymore.
