PARIS — Although they noted a lack of new trends, retailers were pleased with the broad offerings at the Premiere Classe and Eclat de Mode trade fairs, as well as the upscale quality of collections.
Myriad themes emerged for jewelry from delicate, metal-based styles dusted with semiprecious stones to humorous stories, such as N2’s sweet-tooth candy necklaces strung with fake chocolates, buyers said at the fairs, which ended their four-day runs at the Porte de Versailles here Sept. 7.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
