So Chic bracelet by Spallanzani 1880, above: Moschino 2015 fashion and the intelligent toy jewelry of Yael Sonia
This trend is all about our fascination with technology mixed with a desire to shine and sparkle. We have seen a lot of development in smart solutions in the past year. From cars that drive themselves to watches that interact with your social media or measure your health and mood. We are only at the very beginning of an exciting era.
These are all smart devices made into rings, bracelets, necklaces and of course: watches. If you like to know their purpose, please check out the websites of the companies. Above left are smart rings: Sesame ring, Timex Smart watch, ORB smart jewelry, the bracelets on the left are by Memi and the beautiful watch is by Mota. The pendant has bluetooth and is by CSR.

And this excitement is felt in this trend: Digital Chic. We embrace technology but also the Hollywood interpretation of the future. Think about the glamorous images of those big intergalactic Hollywood productions.

Dolce & Gabbana and earrings by Axenoff
This trend is all about romance, drama, fairytales. It’s an eccentric trend that loves big gemstones and does not shy away from highly romantic details. This style is about idealism and imagination of a world beyond our own reality and time, almost like an escape from a world that may be a little too chaotic and difficult to understand at times.
All jewelry by the famous and fabulous house of Magerit
The star ring is by Nikos Koulis, all the other pieces of jewelry are by Axenoff
It is a very individualistic style but yet it embraces a common love of people of freedom. We are ever more aware that we are connected and this style might be seen as an attempt to unite that desire to stand out and have our very own interpretation of style yet with that awareness of being all equal and connected.
Axenoff advertisement, the key is by Theo Fennel, the never out of fashion and always romantic pearl necklace is by Mikimoto, as is the one below on the left side. The horse bracelet is by Hermès
Of course, like all styles described, it has that modern twist to it. I love this style because it is a playful and mindful style. It enables us to play with themes and not hold back on how we want to express ourselves. It is a decadent dream but with a very conscious heart
I love these rings that cover more than one finger! Casato gioielli from Rome, the wing ring is almost like from a fantasy and is by Jasmine Alexander, the image above on the right side is by Swarovski, the family tree necklace is by Gustavo Renna and again a wonderful ring by Casato, the earrings are also by Casato and the cuff with gold studs is by John Hardy
Earrings are byMattioli, Amy Adams wears Max Mara 2015 collection and the pendant is by Breuning
This style is about less is more. It is a style that wants to take all noises away and create some peace and quiet. It is about just design. Nothing extra, nothing superfluous. It is the style of those who reject over consumption, who love the idea of timeless items and design. Graphic, pure, logic, rational.
Pendant in silver is by Breuning, the bag is lovely and elegant Devi Kroell, catwalk scene by Hugo Boss spring/summer 2015 and the silver necklace is by Geromino Jones, below: infinity collection by Tiffany and the golden bracelets are by Faraone Gioielli
This style helps you to calm down, not having to make a million choices. It does not tell you stories other that the very purest of geometrical forms and ideas.
Bee My Love collection by Chaumet, the Amore rings are by Hulchi Belluni, the stunning bracelet is b Giorgio Bonaguro
It is clean, never out of place, stylish yet understated chique. This style is so different from the others described above for two reasons: 1. It is about pure quality.
Antonio Bernardo earrings, bag by Devi Kroell and ring by Jochen Pohl
Bracelet by Isabella Fa, below the bracelet is a design by H.Stern. All the other designs are by Antonio Bernardo
As it is so plain and so nude the quality becomes instantly the highest value. 2. It is modest, which the other three trends are definitely not.
Bracelets top left are by Roberto Coin, the two big cuff bracelets show us some marvellous craftsmanship: Buccellati, big gemstones remind us of mother nature: Gumuchian Icecream Collection, the wonderful pink gemstone necklace is by Elena Votsi
This style trend is really very exotic. It is about those highly decorative styles and ethnic heritage. This is a style that wants to fulfill our desires of telling and hearing stories of countries far far away.

Stories about other cultures that make us dream of travelling, without going there for real. We appreciate our own history again and that of others. We see a lot of natural elements in this style, it is about culture and nature, with a very contemporary approach.
