By far one of the ways your buying priorities have changed in the last 3-4 years is that you love buying up-to-date fashion and trendy jewelry and that you don’t want to pay a lot for it. That’s why Abby’s bought Pandora (average sale $99) and Brighton (average sale $39) to Uniontown in a big way (deep inventory). For this Christmas gift-giving season we will continue to bring the latest styles for the two big brands. We also see new trends that you should jump into this season, for yourself or as a gift, that are trending very quickly now. The first is a line of expandable, bangle bracelets that are symbolic, socially conscious, and inspirational. They are made in the U.S.A. of recycled materials and they start at under $30. We believe that this is the next big trend in bracelets that further your desire to own jewelry that is personal and expresses who you are and can be gifted to others with meaning.
The second trend is definitely more mature, high fashion and patterned after much higher priced jewelry being sold to celebrities, broadcasters and all high profile personality. Sometimes it’s called “Slice of Life” jewelry that features thin slices of real gemstones (rubies, sapphires, citrine, jade, etc.) that are set as pendants, rings, and earrings of a larger size, showcasing these beautiful stones embellished with marcasite small stones, a favorites sparkle accent used with sterling silver jewelry everywhere. Most of these pieces are priced between $50 and $100 and compete with much higher priced brands like Ippolita which start at $595. Stay on top of these two trends for your holiday shopping and get in on the newest looks $100.
