The transaction has the potential to contribute to the long-term sustainability of Blue Nile’s brand. But when so many companies are combined under one big umbrella of his, people worry.

1980s jewelry is back
It may come as a surprise, but 90s jewelry can technically be considered vintage. And, according to many estate jewelers, the 80’s and his 90’s jewelry aesthetic is making a comeback. Part of the reason is that these pieces are on the market. But that’s not all. Victoria explains the “Golden 40 Years Rule”. A wave of nostalgia comes to the creator of childhood pop culture and fashion as she ages. As a result, after a certain amount of time, the era of fashion is revived.
Big, glamorous and bold jewelery sets the tone for powerful outfits that return. While it may not keep pace with the economy, this trend is still present in the current environment. How does that translate into jewelry?Big chains (think Madonna’s pile-on his phase), big dramatic hoops, and other big, bold styles.Generation Z remembers his ’80s. No, but you might be attracted to these looks as well. The thing about jewelry trends is that they always come back.
Other motifs and trends are coming into their own: turquoise, the evil eye and other protective symbols. One “wow” piece might start to replace the dainty layers. As prices go up, so does the popularity of mixed metals. There’s now an irresistible mix of cool jewelry, and Victoria wants people to take advantage of it.
