Business is full of dichotomies, and the accessories market is no exception.
The past year has been a newsworthy one for the bauble market. Out went the “It” bag, in came “It” sunglasses. Metal and gemstone prices are skyrocketing, giving the costume jewelry category ample room to grow — and all the while top-tier diamond jewelry is still selling out. The high-low phenomenon continued with brands including Botkier and Sigerson Morrison signing deals with big box retailers like Target, while more brands launched collections with precious exotic skins — some with fi ve-digit sticker prices.
