Walk Down the Aisle – A Preview of JCK Las Vegas’ Bridal Neighborhood

Walk Down the Aisle – A Preview of JCK Las Vegas’ Bridal Neighborhood

As one of the main pillars of most retail stores, bridal jewelry—engagement rings, wedding bands—will be a priority for many traveling to JCK Las Vegas. There will be, as ever, demand for the more traditional looks: Solitaires, the halo (which, once considered a trend, has arguably earned the label of classic), two-tone styles, and the like. There will also be a treasure hunt for new trends, in which there is plenty to be discovered: Wide, woven, loopy designs, that add a free-spirited, flowy aesthetic to the traditional engagement ring; colored gemstone rings, which remain a popular alternative to the conventional; and even rings that are more on the “fashion” side, taking the place of both engagement ring and wedding band on the left hand. And for good measure, there’s an assortment of the still-beloved rose gold, ranging from fashion-forward to classic

The JCK Team is Gearing Up for Las Vegas!

The JCK Team is Gearing Up for Las Vegas!

JCK Las Vegas is right around the corner and we can’t contain our excitement! As we start gearing up for the show, we wanted to share some of our JCK survival tips with you….

“Water! And this year you’ll be able to find plenty of it with new water stations sprinkled throughout the convention center and Plumb Club sponsored water bottles!” Yancy Weinrich, Senior Vice President

“It’s all about the shoes! While being stylish may be top of mind comfort should be the #1 factor when determining which shoes to pack for walking around the show floor. Bring choices and be prepared to switch them out mid-day.” Lauren Laramore, Marketing Director

“Water and rest! Don’t overdo it and sleep when you can!” Kate Nellis, Special Events and Conference Manager

“AHCS: Always Have Chap Stick. Vegas is a dry place, and if you’re lips are chapped and cracked, you’re not going to have fun talking to people, smiling or enjoying a cocktail. Moisturizing all day is key!”Hannah Connorton, Retailer Account Manager
