Window Dressing
Jewelry Trends

With bold, large, and modern shapes in vogue, gems with a thin silhouette are more popular than ever. In a new twist on this idea, more designers are framing these precious slices like windows. Pendants, station necklaces, and earrings are punctuated by thin gemstone slices, with see-through style. K. di Kuore’s collection of round disk-shaped slices of real amethyst, citrine, and smoky quartz is quite mod in mood. Other executions by Carolina and Gurhan have a more handcrafted feel, with irregularity in the shape. In any case, these styles are clearly directional. — Cheryl Kremkow
