Variety is at the heart of the accessories world, and that means a wide array of price points and options. With fluctuating commodity costs, accessories designers have become crafty, creating diffusion lines, mixing materials and launching high-end contemporary collections to meet consumer demand for affordable and fashionable wares.
Facing volatile gold, silver, platinum and diamond prices, brands are incorporating lower-priced gems such as semiprecious stones to keep costs down. But creativity, value and a healthy flow of new inventory still rule the category.
