Pet Jewelry Follows Human Trends

Jewelry for pets ranks among one of the more decadent consumer trends – one that takes it cues from human fashions. One of the most obvious jewelry trend crossovers, and the driving force behind the pet jewelry industry, comes from an unlikely source. Children’s charm bracelets have served as the inspiration for the majority of products now on the market.

If you’re in the market to sniff out the hottest new trends in pet jewelry, start with a stop at your local pre-teen accessory boutique for a look at the most popular juvenile fashions.

Swarovski crystal encrusted baubles, slide bracelets, Italian charms and dog-tag-inspired designs, which feature prominently among pet jewelry lines, all started with young fashionistas before going to the dogs. Getting in touch with these hot teen fashion trends may just provide the clues you need to spice up your pet jewelry line.

Faux Fabulous
The more glitz the better. With the young audience’s constant exposure to pop culture icons and uber-wealthy celebrities, it’s no surprise that cheap knockoffs of big-ticket bling get their stamp of approval. Rhinestone-spangled and white metal look-alike pieces with jaw dropping effect draw their attention in a big way. Similar designs for pets have already begun to creep onto the market with positive response.

Beaded Bling
Simple, beaded jewelry had remained popular among youth for several decades. Colorful, shiny and fun, these fashions allow young consumers to get creative and develop their own personal sense of style, inexpensively. Beaded necklaces for pets, featuring cultured pearls, plastic and crystal beads in every color imaginable will likely catch your customer’s attention for the same reasons.

Nature-Inspired Designs
Natural fibers and materials have even found a following among young men searching for ways to define their own sense of style. Wrist cuffs, bracelets and “surfer necklaces” made from hemp, rubber and leather have risen in popularity. Tough-dog accessories have similarly crept into the grown-up marketplace for owners who desire their pets to have an image that more closely resembles their own. <HOME>
