Latest Jewelry trends for 2013

jewelry stylesAll fashion trends vary from season to season, and jewelery is no exception to this ‘golden’ rule. To understand this, you must first understand that- historically and modernly- each season is representative of individual traits. Winter trends are usually stark, crisp, and clean Spring is all about new growth, and a broad range of pastel colors may be included. Fall is very earth-centered, with simple designs and earth-based coloring schemes. Summer is the season of fun. The trends are bold, brightly colored, and incorporate fun imagery or items. So how does this ‘everything fun’ summer trend trait incorporate itself into jewelery? Look below for a comprehensive listing of the summer’s hottest jewelery trends.

Arm Cuffs– Arm cuffs are similar to bracelets, except that they fit your arm snug where a bracelet would dangle. Arm cuffs are also open-ended, meaning that they are not one singular piece. Instead, an area is open, and at either end it will secure itself to your arm in the snug manner we just spoke of. These cuffs can be found in all patterns, shapes, sizes, and colors.

Ear Cuffs– Ear cuffs are nearly identical to their arm cuff brethren, except that obviously, they are much smaller. Another key difference is that ear cuffs most often come in layered bands. You may have three, four, or even five linked rings circling your ear lobes. These may be found in a wide variety of designs, and offer a very fun way to show the quirky side of your personality.

Electrical Neon Colors– Jewelery which has just a splash or two of bold neon coloring is always in season during the summer months. This allows you to amp up your wardrobe without looking too flashy or outdated. Have fun with it, and see which colors can compliment each other. You may be surprised. For example, did you know that neon green and neon pink actually work very well together? How about bold blue and neon purple? The options are endless so don’t feel the need to restrain yourself.

Art Deco– Art Deco estate jewelery refers to pieces inspired by modern art. These pieces come in all forms, from ear rings to bracelets to necklaces and more. Show off your fun side and your sophisticated side all in one singular piece!

Gorgeous Green– Green is a very bright, fun color and all things green are very in during the summer season. The best part? Green pieces are also in during spring, so you can incorporate these pieces for two seasonal trends! Besides being bright and fun, green also gives off a very fresh, healthy, happy aura, allowing you to look your absolute best no matter what social situation you find yourself in.

Playful Pieces– Mustaches, bejeweled lips, animals, screw earrings… summer is all about fun! Be creative with your jewelery pieces and show off just how much you really love to have fun. If you strive towards uniqueness in your wardrobe, these pieces are perfect for you.

Finding and Choosing the best place to sell your gold and silver for the most cash!

It is not hard to find a local place that is willing to buy your gold and silver, a quick drive to the grocery or a local search on Google will lead many results.  The high prices of gold and silver have turned the average person into a gold investor, the question most people ask themselves, what is my jewelry worth and who can I trust to sell it.Many of us have unwanted gold and silver jewelry, unused household silver flatware or that box in the garage that holds the old silver tea set that no one uses because it tarnishes so often, it’s more work than it is worth.  With the high cost of living in conjunction with the high unemployment rate, many consumers are turning to these unwanted items as a quick method to earn much needed cash.

Everyone is entitled to do what they like with their items, the unanswered question is, where to go? When buying jewelry, you need a jeweler that you can trust and rely on for the best value.  The same should apply when you are selling your jewelry.  Misleading advertisements are all around us, empty promises that are meant to bring you in, only to feel obligated or convinced of something you are not sure or qualified to decide on.

OCinTheSpotlight ran a survey of customers coming into Prego Jewelry in Fountain Valley, a well-established, trusted local jeweler serving the Orange County residence.  We asked the customers coming in, some from other counties such as Riverside and Los Angeles to turn their gold and silver into cash.  We were curious about their selection process, why they chose a jewelry store and not the local “we pay top cash for gold” pop-up stores on every corner.  Here are some of the responses:“I trust this family, they’ve sold me my engagement ring and there’s never any pressure” – Jody, Huntington Beach

“I was referred by a good friend that lived locally, she trusts them so I trust them” – SWarner – Riverside

“I came to sell many pieces, but I loved that the owner “Inna” convinced me to update an old pendant instead of sell it, they are truly honest and not greedy, they custom jewelry designed a ring using my pendant and I love it” – Britney, Huntington Beach

“I read their ad in the paper when I came in, they didn’t make excuses about their offers like others or try to force me into anything, they didn’t know I already had one of those “cash for gold” places make me an offer and it was a lot less than theirs.  I will be back to bring the rest of my stuff.” Private

“I’ve referred many people to them, I wouldn’t trust anyone else, they are a jeweler and they’ve been around a long time, I don’t think they’re going anywhere anytime soon.  They also polished my ring when I was there, nice store!” – Brenda – Southgate

Inna, the owner of Prego Jewelry was asked to comment about these responses: “I’m humbled by these comments and appreciate having loyal customers, we are a family owned and operated jewelry store we have customers from all over the place but mostly serve Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley.  We truly care about our customers and community, we do pay the most cash for gold and silver, on many occasions, we overpay because our goal is to gain a long term customer, we treat everyone like family, we always have and always will, I think people are savvy to other being genuine, we always strive to be”.

In talking to many of these customers, I realized that the unanswered questions everyone always has about selling their gold and silver is to begin by finding a local established jewelry store such as this jewelry store in Fountain Valley, the convenience for most customers in having jewelry repairs, custom jewelry designs or turn their gold and silver into cash all in one place, has kept these customers coming and they refer their friends.  The difference in choosing an actual established jewelry store to buy your gold and silver, their goal to earn your business for a life time, not just the quick one-time buy your gold for now.
