David Yurman will show these new 18-karat gold and diamond statement earrings at the Couture show this year. They retail for $14,000.

New York—The countdown is on to Las Vegas jewelry market week.

National Jeweler editors have done their due diligence in preparing, breaking down the many jewelry trade show changes this year and the trends to spot, plus providing readers with lists of where to eat in Las Vegas without breaking the bank, and what to do to wind down.

We’ve also gotten a head start on the jewelry itself; below, see new pieces hot off the jeweler’s bench that will debut at Couture.

Arman Sarkisyan  22-karat gold and turquoise ring with diamonds set in oxidized sterling silver 
Arman Sarkisyan (Salon 150) will have his signature array of luxurious, classic baubles like lockets with meticulous, hand-engraved detailing on display, but with a few bright new gemstones added to the mix, such as chrysoprase and turquoise.

Colette (Salon 1204) will bring plenty of wearable pieces to Couture this year, like ear cuffs, pendants and stacking rings, as well as killer statement pieces like this pendant, which feels like an amplified, glamorous version of an antique Victorian moon.

Dana Bronfman 18-karat yellow gold and rhodium-plated sterling silver earrings with diamonds

New from Dana Bronfman (Salon 137) at the jewelry trade show will be some adorable hammered metal signet rings made with Fairmined gold, as well as bold statement pieces that utilize the designer’s hallmarks, like her metal “cut-outs.”

David Yurman 18-karat yellow gold and diamond earrings ($14,000)

David Yurman (Villa 110) recently unveiled an online customization tool that allows customers to order rings and pendants with the engraving of their choice. At Couture, the brand will present hero pieces, like these graphic earrings, alongside more wallet-friendly classics.

Foundrae’s focus will be on its popular medallions, which customers are encouraged to add on onto their existing Foundrae chains as they “build their story.” New symbols are based on the elements, and new chains made of stones like lapis and malachite are not to be missed (Design Atelier, DA 1).

Graziela 18-karat white gold earrings with tourmaline, citrine and diamonds

Color is trending, and Graziela (Salon 508) is expressing that through brightly colored titanium pieces like hoop earrings as well as gemstone show-stoppers.

Gumuchian 18-karat yellow gold and diamond hair clips ($4,000)

The hottest accessory trend in 2019 is hair jewelry, with all manner of bejeweled bobby pins and barrettes selling like hotcakes. It’s even spilling into fine jewelry—Gumuchian (Salon 303) will have these truly luxurious gold and diamond butterfly hair clips (even the spring inside is handmade in gold), plus a series of others at the show.

Hearts On Fire “Aurora” bracelet in 18-karat white gold with white diamonds ($37,500)

Pomellato necklace in 18-karat rose gold ($60,000)

Classic chains never went out of style, but they’re having an earnest resurgence in jewelry right now and Pomellato (Mouton 1) makes some of the most luxurious versions imaginable, like this multi-layered version from the “Iconica” range.

Ray Griffiths “Regency” ring in 18-karat yellow gold with a 2.22-carat pear-shaped pink sapphire and 3.85 carats of color-change garnet pavé ($7,910)
