Trend Alert: Black and White Jewelry

Jan 10, 2013

What’s not to love about the crisp clean contrast of black and white? This look has long been a classic for jewelry design, but the love of these two-tone pieces has certainly increased over the last few months, due in part to the Art Deco trend that developed over the end of last year. Black and white jewelry gives an instant “wow” factor to any look and maintains a very modern feel.

Naturally when we think of black and white, our first thoughts turn to diamonds. These are always a striking combination in jewelry and the pair of diamond colors looks good with any skin tone. However, not everyone may have the budget for diamonds so soon after the holidays so this iconic black and white look can also be achieved with black and white pearls, sapphires, quartz, onyx, and topaz. These gemstones easily achieve that diamond illusion with fewer price limitations.

The black and white jewelry frenzy is also not just limited to women. Men, who have steadily been pursuing more contemporary jewelry designs over the years, also dig the contrasting looks. This paring of black and white is found in stark geometric designs, contemporary metals, and rock ‘n roll reinterpretations. Black diamonds and black sapphires have also been choice materials for men’s modern jewelry designs this season.

Naturally, watches are also a fantastic choice when it comes to showing off this trend. Chanel is definitely one of the watch brands that brings the black and white contrast to life, as this color combination is what they primarily focus on in their J12 watch collections. TAG Heuer’s Formula 1 watches also make a nice use of this on the women’s model, with a stainless steel case with a single black ceramic stripe on the bracelet.
