If you’re headed to Vegas, you won’t want to miss these stylish brands.
1.Endless Jewelry This Danish brand is one of the fastest growing jewelry brands in history, boasting over 3,300 stores. With Jennifer Lopez as brand ambassador and co-designer for the Spring/Summer 2016 collection, the jewelry brand is sure to deliver a celebration of femininity and power. The collection encourages women to express their own personality and uniqueness, and we know JLo will surprise you with her sense of style.
2.Frederick Goldman. This JCK event will be a special one for Goldman, as the company will debut the Karl Lagerfeld bridal jewelry line. The collection of engagement rings and wedding bands are targeted at the “designer conscious millennial consumer,” according to company CEO, Jonathan Goldman.
3.Luminox Watches never ceases to amaze. 25 years after the original Luminox Navy SEAL watch was chosen to serve the Navy SEALs and other military units and law enforcement groups, comes the Luminox SEAL Colormark Nova collection. The watch features the best luminous technologies that allow the watch to glow for up to 25 years.
4.Reactor Watches. Don’t miss Reactor’s limited edition Ionized Poseidon watch--only 200 of these watches will be made, and the new plating process gives it the one-of-a-kind finish. Features include Reactor’s Never Dark technology which provides the best illumination under all lighting conditions, making the watch visible even during the first 30 minutes the human eye needs to adjust to the dark.
5.Erica Jewelry Co., LTD. Erica Courtney may be new to JCK, but there’s no doubt she knows luxury jewelry. Her pieces make a bold statement with colorful gems and diamonds, and her commitment to details and excellent craftsmanship produces stunning works of art. Check out the Gorgeous & Engaged collection for her unique take on the classical engagement ring.
6.Frederique Constant. If you haven’t already, check out one of our favorite smartwatches--the Horological smartwatch, a perfect combination of classic and modern innovation. The watch connects to an app on your smartphone, but can actually function independently with its sensors. Features include an accurate sleeptracker, motion and activity sensors, and a battery that lasts around 25 months. We’re impressed.
7.Tissot is a luxury Swiss watch brand known for inspiring innovation through cutting edge technology. Tissot was, for example, before its time, releasing a connected watch before the craze - nearly 11 years ago. Most recently, Tissot was named the Official Timekeeper and partner of NBA basketball.
8.Swarovski needs no introduction. This classic crystal jewelry brand is perhaps best known for having created the shining star that tops the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in New York City each winter. Daniel Swarovski created this brand with the intention of bringing the diamond-studded look of royalty to the everyday person. His cut glass, after all, is just as stunning, and even decorated Rihanna’s exquisite crystal dress at the CFDA awards in 2014.
9.Ice-Watch is a fairly young brand, having only begun its operations in 2006. But it quickly rose to prominence and has since become a European fashion icon. It comes in a variety of warm, fresh colors that easily catch the eye. Ice-Watch is Belgian designed, using Japanese movements and Chinese assembly, the combination of which further distinguishes it from its competitors.
10. Katie Diamond Jewelry is one of our favorites for younger crowds. Asymmetry is another big trend, especially for youth looking to express individuality. The brand draws its inspiration from Moroccan and Indian design, architecture and textiles and offers statement pieces alongside dainty, elegant designs that prove that less is more.
