The fashion industry is all about predicting trends before they happen and Le Vian jewelers, perhaps best known for their chocolate diamonds, is sharing predictions for next year in their 2011 Jewelry Trend Forecast. The list includes predictable staples like earth tones and sheer metallics along with snakes, equestrian, and wild animal themes. They also predict that shades of blue, pink and purple will be popular gemstone colors over the next year as well as blackened silver and carved gems (two of my favorites). What do you think? Browse the trends and then let us know if you think they're on target.
