The Edge of Night
Fashion Forward


Thanks to the return of black in all segments of fashion, black metals have created new opportunities—opportunities that run the gamut of price point and fashion trends. Just as black clothing adds versatility to any wardrobe, the same can be said of jewelry wardrobes, which now include blackened steel, sterling silver, titanium, and even karat gold. Besides metals of various price points and configurations, black lends itself easily to the most important trends this year. Black is effectively used in jewelry of every persuasion, successfully adding an edge to looks in competing trends from modern to ancient, Medieval to Victorian, Gothic-inspired to nature-inspired, and feminine looks as well as masculine styles.
