Trends never actually change, rather they evolve, clothing, music, style, in general, they are all an ever-changing expression medium of our personality. Today’s trend emphasis is on individuality, on molding fashion around the individual and not the other way around. An excellent example result of the personalization trend in jewelry is the layering or stacking of bracelets.
Today’s trend emphasis is on individuality, on molding fashion around the individual and not the other way around.
Accessories are an essential part of the daily dressing, and no look is complete without jewelry. The current trend doing rounds is layered jewelry, be it necklaces or cuffs. College-going students sporting three different necklaces, with a funky pendant that stands out, is a common sight too. “My personal favorites are the layered cuffs. The idea is to take different finishes and colors and materials, but try to stack them in such a way that they look like they belong to a single story.”
Layering is done with rings and pendants as well, but personalization’s of the bracelet looks has become more relevant due to our modern obsession with always checking on our phones and other devices, making our wrists a major focus of display. Due to their versatility, many bracelets can easily be swapped in endless combinations to suit a mood or an outfit, limitless options of creating a unique one of a kind look.

The stack can and should be used with a formal look, for example, a watch or time piece is layered with other bracelets, giving a professional attire so much more depth and dimension. Contrasting with other prominent accentuating pieces like pocket squares and tie bars to subtly show that the person wearing is much more than a business suit.
The range of acceptable jewelry for a man is limited. Many men are only going to be seen with three main accessories decorating their hands – a beautiful watch, a stylish pair of cufflinks, and a simple wedding ring, if they’re married. In addition to helping wearers stick to their schedules, wristwatches make it easier for them to display their sense of style. They are a form of self-expression. For those that prefer a bit of high-status bling on their wrist, Watches can communicate a lot about the wearer’s personality.
Layered bracelet stacks are the men’s jewelry trend of today, Since we specialize in men’s jewelry INOX has curated an extensive selection of bracelets that can be worn on their own, or can be combined to create unique looks. Within the past five years, that has changed. In 2012, the sale of men’s accessories skyrocketed, spearheaded by what was then a new trend for men’s bracelets, arguably the easiest piece of jewelry for the modern man to put on and successfully pull off. All of a sudden you couldn’t shake a man’s hand without seeing a “mangle” that he “picked up somewhere on holiday” shooting out of his cuffs. The more daring early adopters replaced their Livestrong bands with a real arm-party practically eclipsing their vintage Rolex. From sleek industrial steel, to laid back leather and spiritual stone beads, all the materials for the perfect wrist story.
“You have to have hustle,” says Jenny Caro, co-owner of Jewelry by Designs in Woodbridge, Virginia. She and her husband John opened their doors in Loroton, VA 28 years ago. They started from scratch and never looked back. Today they are the reigning king and queen of the jewelry game, voted Best of Prince William County six years in a row. The secret to their success? Going above and beyond when it comes to customer service and being sure to offer the top names customers demand. Enter INOX jewelry. Even before it was in the case, the product was selling fast. Within the first week five pieces had left the store and hit the streets. INOX encapsulates a range of styles from urban to classic and quite a bit in between. With offerings for men and women, INOX is truly a leader in the next wave of jewelry trends. While Jewelry by Designs has a good rate of customer loyalty, Caro explains, “Where we are is a very transitional neighborhood.” Much of the community is comprised of military and government workers so turnover is high. It is critical for the business to offer savvy designers in order to generate continued interest within the ever-changing community base. INOX fits the bill exactly with a broad range of styles and price points that cater to the needs of every client. Over the years, and the ever changing landscape of marketing strategies, Caro has learned a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t. “We do not do cold mailings,” she says with emphasis.The company stays in touch with existing customers, reaching out via direct mail for birthdays and special occasions, but to bring in new foot traffic, Jewelry by Designs relies on the tried and true. “Our location and our signage,” Caro says, are key factors to getting people in the door. Cable TV ads and understanding the reach and strength of social media have also helped to keep the store at the top of the game. In the fast paced world of jewelry design, only those willing to keep up with what’s next will succeed. Jewelry by Designs has been keeping up for nearly three decades now, and their new partnership with INOX is just another step on their journey into a bright future. 2932 Prince William Parkway Woodbridge, VA 22192 (703) 988-6415 www.jewelrybydesigns.com
