IJL calls on exhibitors to submit pieces, collections or looks for the Catwalk Trends SS/19

[London 5 July 2018]: IJL trends editor and jewellery expert, Paola De Luca, has outlined six key jewellery trend themes for Spring-Summer 2019 for International Jewellery London (IJL), the UK’s leading trade event for the international jewellery industry.

Her vision includes designs rooted in urban lifestyles, the renaissance of pearls, dark romantic influences, and a blending of Art Deco and 1960s Op Art themes. These will be showcased on IJL’s SS19 Trends Catwalk where Paola will present her detailed forecasts (2-4 September 2018).

The trends, from IJL’s Trends Editor and international jewellery futurist, Paola de Luca are:

  • Industrial Core; inspired by urban lifestyles, architecture and redefined industrial materials.
  • I’m Perfection; playing on proportions that creates surreal, optical illusions with geometric and patchwork forms.
  • Neo Classic; classic designs with a twist.
  • Dark Romantic; Drawing inspiration from dark forests, magic and mysticism.
  • Op-Coding; a mix between Art Deco styling from the 1920s and the Optical art of the 1960s
  • Constellation Collective; Stars, moons, planets, flying saucers and constellations will all be captured in sparkling diamonds, especially fancy-cuts and shapes.

IJL will return to Kensington Olympia from 2-4 September 2018 with an expanded events programme, and will showcase the latest ranges from over 550 high end, finished jewellery manufacturers and designers, and loose gemstones and retail services suppliers.

The IJL SS19 Trends Catwalk will showcase key looks, and collections. The catwalk will give visitors an in-depth and comprehensive review of Spring/Summer 2019 jewellery trends, with daily catwalk shows. IJL is an unrivalled opportunity for the international jewellery trade to network and find out about the latest industry trends and market developments which will help retailers and suppliers make the right commercial decisions.

More information about the trends…

Industrial Core

 This trend is inspired by urban lifestyles, architecture and redefined industrial materials. Expect to see jewellery with strong connections to minimalist design, including a resurgence of links and chains. Yellow gold versions decorated with diamonds translate industrial inspirations into fine pieces, while silhouettes are kept simple and unisex – in-keeping with broader fashion trends. This highly-contemporary look ties into the growing number of eco-conscious jewellery designers making their pieces in recycled silver, gold or more unusual materials.



 I’m Perfection

 This trend is all about a play on proportions that creates surreal, optical illusions with geometric and patchwork forms. Jewellery within the I’m Perfection trend could be described as ‘contemporary surrealism’ merged with Picasso’s Cubism; think asymmetrical rings with unusual silhouettes and single earrings that are designed to stand alone, set in yellow and rose gold.


Neo Classic

 The pearl continues its renaissance in modern designs. Myriad colours, from golden, peachy pink and white South Sea to silvery-black Tahitian, are inspiring designers to craft new collections with the pearl as the star. To nail this trend, think classic designs with a twist set in precious yellow or white gold. Pearls as stackable charms for necklaces, or combined with a medallion or collection of beads, is likely to shine through.




Dark Romantic

 Drawing inspiration from dark forests, magic and mysticism, this trend blends Art Nouveau inspirations with something altogether darker. Think pointed forms, minimal flowers, twisted branches and mysterious snakes finding their way into jewellery designs. Rather than being caricature, this trend has an overall sophisticated and elegant flair, with designs that climb up the ear and swirl around fingers and wrists in gunmetal and shimmering diamonds. Expect to see double finger rings, elongated shapes and spiky earrings especially.




 Discover a mix between Art Deco styling from the 1920s and the Optical art of the 1960s with this striking trend that’s centred on black and white, whether in the form of metals, diamonds or enamel. The Op-Coding theme is all about geometric patterns, pixelated effects and sharp contrasts, so expect to see white diamonds artfully placed on black enamel to create digital patterns. Silhouettes are minimal and simple, with a futuristic edge.




Constellation Collective

 The space trend has been evident at all major fashion weeks, from designer brands like Alberta Ferretti to Alexander Wang and Givenchy. Stars, moons, planets, flying saucers and constellations will all be captured in sparkling diamonds, especially fancy-cuts and shapes. Metals will only exist to prop up diamonds, so expect to see simpler, highly-polished settings that lend themselves perfectly to heirloom treasures.

Chaumet 230 Years of tradition

The story of Chaumet, the first Parisian jeweller opened in Place Vendôme started in 1780.

Marie-Etienne Nitot, the founder of Chaumet, became the official jeweller of Emperor Napoleon. Embarking on his career by working with Auber, the jeweller to Queen Marie-Antoinette, Nitot earned his reputation as the “jeweller of the tiara” in those early commissions when Nitot created the coronation crown for Napoleon. The Empress Josephine appeared at the resplendent coronation in a tiara created by Nitot, and so the story began. He created crowns, jewels and individual pieces for Empress Josephine and then Empress Marie-Louise. The skills of the craftsmen of the atelier passed down from generations to generations constitute the proof of the creativity and perfections describing the house.


MOISEIKIN creates most luxurious and inspirational jewelleries and souvenirs. Specialising in glyptography, MOISEIKIN strives to achieve flawless quality and state-ofthe-art technologies that command attention, build emotion, and include surprising secret elements while reviving time-honoured Russian craftsmanship.

Viktor Moiseikin launched his eponymous fine jewellery brand in 1993 inspired by Russian jewellery traditions, a passion for colourful natural stones and a great desire to express his own original ideas. His curiosity and passion with art and gemstones was cultivated at young age by his grandfather, a known sculptor and architect in Russia. He introduced young Viktor to Russian art, philosophy and culture. However, his interest in gemstones was nurtured by his geologist father.
At the age of 19, while he was still studying engineering and physics, Viktor founded a work shop formerly known as Magic Crystal. He began carving special objects and sculptures from gemstones. His thoughtfulness, excellent workmanship and imaginative designs quickly launched his stellar career and earned him international acclaim. Today Moiseikin employs over 200 artists, craftsmen and goldsmiths who pour their souls and talents into creating gemstone and jewellery items which convey and advance Russian Luxury.

Fine Jewelleries

MOISEIKIN deliveres feelings of artists that see in nature and ladies. Each creation is unique with little hidden surprise, emotional and mysterious. Presently, the artists’ magic hands make astounding, one-ofa- kind things by combining classical craftsmanship methods, high-quality stones of many colours, innovative settings and state-of-the-art designs. In Vincent Van Gogh collection, for example, they have managed to convey the authentic spirit of his very peculiar paintings. A combination of oriental and occidental styles adds harmony to the interaction of the gold filigree and play of colours.

Starry Night
What time is more romantic than midnight when it is still and peaceful on earth, and nothing prevents from listening to brillian stars on the sapphire sky! This magic time inspired MOISEIKIN to create exquisite jewelleries that make a woman wearing them a Star Queen. And even swirling golden clouds can not cover the glamorous fire of the night- sky diamonds, inviting and promising to reveal all the riddles of the Universe. But the main riddle- the Woman’s Beauty, is strengthened by the opulent “Starry Night”inspired by Vincent Van Gogh.




Play of colours, sweet tones and gradients a mysterious natural phenomenon embodied in gold and diamonds. The precious pattern draws the eye again and again inducing to unravel the mystery of amazing auroras.





A dynamic gemstone performance “Waltzing Brilliance” MOISEIKIN has invented the innovative Jewellery setting which enables the stone to freely rotate in the setting while releasing the light over the facet. This innovation brings more opportunities to designers to create the new surface and sparkle. Inspired by the modern Russian ballet every jewellery set in the “Waltzing Brilliance” makes a graceful yet dynamic gemstone performance. This innovation is currently patented in Russia, the US, China and Europe.


Haute Horlogerie

Following and developing the traditions of Carl Faberge MOISEIKIN surpassed the ingenious teacher. The figurines carved from semiprecious stones or made in the 3D mosaic technique are luxurious interior decorations by themselves. But combined with the designer’s clock mechanism they are authentic masterpieces worth inheriting through generations. The unicity of the clock mechanism is in its horizontal layout, precise calculation and state-of- the- art materials of the clock mechanism parts.  One manual winding with the gold key, ensures eight-days work. Honing their skills on interior sculptures craftsmen from MOISEIKIN created several haute horlogerie compositions. Objet d’Art Horn of Plenty Interior Jewel Clock Inspired by the ancient Greek mythology, the Garden of Eden,  the second to none Jewel clock was made with over 4,500 pieces of natural gemstones and pearls, bringing life to the heavenly paradise. The lustrous nautilus horn intertwined with leaf motif gold work is filled with plenty of fruits
and flowers thoroughly. The lively orchid flowers are carved from crystal quartz and unconventionally mounted with colour sapphires, fancy tourmalines and amethyst, diffusing sweet and exotic odors. The clock, a work of engineering masterpiece, rotates horizontally on a circular jade stand that ticks the way into your hearts. This Horn of Plenty Interior Jewel Clock is the 3rd of its limited series and the first piece is now at the presidential residence in Russia after several international expositions.

Brooches are Back in Fashion

The star pieces of this year will be flamboyant, plain or minimal, namely any kind of brooches. Fashion designers bring back onto the windows the brooches which we thought to be out-dated. It seems that many of the reputable jewellery maisons
from Chanel to Dior, Cindy Chao to Lydia Courteille, from Tiffany to Chaumet have caught this trend. Previously used to enliven jackets or to merge shawls and cardigans, brooches go beyond the routine to accompany all kinds of clothes this season. They will possibly be seen on the collars of shirts or jumpers, hats, bags and even shoes.

Trend Collections

Cactus de Cartier

Combined with geometrical cuts, each gem in Cactus de  Cartier is transformed into an  object of desire. The collection featuring various assertive pieces from rings, earrings to collars and bracelets are formed using diamonds, lapis lazuli and emeralds.
