The 12 Jewelry Trends in 2013

Ruby and diamond orchid ring

Jewelers are still saying it with flowers: The ever-popular floral motif has maintained a strong presence in many fine jewelry collections, including Le Vian and Arunashi.

Chinese native Anna Hu’s limited-edition haute joaillerie pieces are often inspired by nature. Her Myth of the Orchid earrings, displayed this year at Paris’s Les Arts Décoratifs, reflect both her extraordinary craftsmanship and fantastical, feminine aesthetic. Piaget’s precious gems were also in bloom with the house’s new Rose collection, created in honor of founder Yves Piaget’s passion for the flower (2012 marked 30 years since the rose peony was named for him at the Geneva International Competition of New Roses). Feminine florals also adorned the high jewelry collections of houses like Breguet and Lorenz Bäumer.
