As we welcome in the New Year, it’s important to remember that it’s not just a whole new year but a new decade as well. Popular ideas in products and trends come and go frequently, not just when the calendar changes; but the onset of a new decade often means many changes. The retail industry is in a constant state of flux, gearing up around the holiday season before taking off a whole new line up of special occasions, holidays, and events. Valentine’s Day, Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation, Back to School, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then we do it all over again. In between, there are wedding seasons, baby shower seasons, and a plethora of birthdays, anniversaries, and other milestones to celebrate. Keeping up with what’s in and what’s out concerning special occasion silver items can be challenging, but it is worth it if you can anticipate and take advantage of a trend.

Silver Enamel Jewelry Items

Enamel was really big all year long, but grew in popularity as the holiday season arrived. Our showcase of enamel items has expanded, alongside other options for enamel-enhanced silver keepsake items. Earrings, key chains, medals, charms, bracelets, signet rings, and religious symbols are all very popular in our enamel category of sterling silver for retailers. Enamel can come in multiple colors and tones, highlighting the quality silver design of our jewelry and keepsake items. Perfect for gift-giving, silver enamel jewelry items are a great way to mark a holiday, special day, or milestone in someone’s life.

Silver Baby Gifts

Presented at baby showers, the birth of a new baby, Christenings and Baptisms, special occasion silver items as baby gifts have been popular for generations. Sterling silver for retailers often comes in the form of new baby or wedding gifts, as silver represents purity and new beginnings. It also is a gift that was given for hundreds of years as a means of investing in the life of the new child or happy couple. Silver keepsake items are more popular today, including baby jewelry, special-designed custom photo frames, silver spoons, comb and brush sets, and baby porringer cups. Other popular baby gifts made of silver include diaper pins, keepsake boxes for baby’s first haircut or lost tooth, and elegant rattles.

Silver Theme Jewelry Items

Some of the jewelry that is the most popular is designed specifically with a hobby or lifestyle in mind. Nautical jewelry, bracelets designed for a Sweet 16 or Quinceanera, holiday keepsake ornaments, equestrian jewelry, and specialty chains are all very popular with many of our clients. Depending on the customers that you serve, one might be more in demand than the others. Excellent for gift shops in tourist areas, shopping malls, outlet centers, and even online retail stores, these theme jewelry pieces sell well throughout the year and during the holidays.
