What constitutes the best fashion jewelry changes every year–often every season! Keep up with the latest jewelry-inspired trends. Here are the most notable trends emerging just in time for spring:
1. Simple Costume Jewelry Pieces
In these times, consumers seek familiarity and comfort. That is where simple costume jewelry pieces come in. Expect to see handcrafted silver necklaces, wispy chains, and necklaces with a single jewel or a string of just three or four small jewels. Examples include a versatile cuff bracelet, a delicate chain necklace with a single pearl, simple silver bar earrings, small gold hoop earrings, and thin metal rings.
In addition to keeping things calm and low-key, there is another perk of simple pieces. Simple pieces pair well with just about anything. Wear them over and over again. Add a quiet air of elegance to a casual outfit or dress down a suit or frock with minimalist jewelry.
2. Bold, Vibrant Colors
On the other end of the spectrum, bold colors are making a comeback this spring. Fashion-savvy consumers will be sporting all the colors of the rainbow. If your current collection consists mostly of metals, that’s okay. Harper’s Bazaar recommends wearing them together and mixing and matching colorful stones and metals. “The more mishmash, the easier it is to pair with your wardrobe as it opens up the range of shades to coordinate,” Harper’s Bazaar writes. Mix turquoise jewelry, agate, helenite, amethyst, apatite, and others with plain metal cuffs, chains, and baubles.
Specialty jewelry shops account for 43% of the country’s jewelers. Head over to one to find unique, brightly colored jewelry.
3. Statement Jewelry–And, In Particular, Statement Chokers!
Some statement jewelry will persevere this spring. One of the trendiest statement jewelry pieces in the coming months will be statement chokers. According to Marie Claire, statement chokers will be in fashion during spring and fall months in 2020. Statement chokers have big, chunky jewels and centerpieces, spikes, and scalloped or dangling pieces.
Wear statement chokers with a plain white jersey tank or layer one on top of a beige knit turtleneck.
4. Charms, Amulets, and Talismans
In times of uncertainty, expect to see a resurgence of charms, amulets, and talismans. Jewelry bearing crosses, good luck charms, hearts, and rosary-style beads will be especially popular. While many may assume certain charms are just popular, there are distinct, relevant meanings behind some of the most popular charms. For example, elephants symbolize luck. Angel wings symbolize protection. Anchors symbolize stability and love, and leaves denote regrowth and happiness.
5. Chain Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings, And Ear Cuffs
Finally, chains are coming back in a big way, especially oversized ones. Expect to see big chains when it comes to bracelets and necklaces, and smaller accessories–like rings, earrings, and are cuffs–also compromised of chain links. What are the best ways to style large, bulky chain necklaces? “The key to styling an oversized chain link is to contrast the size with something more delicate like a single diamond necklace,” Harper’s Bazaar advises.
Chains are becoming so popular, they will not be confined to traditional jewelry. Designers are coming out with chain-link heels and heels with chain-link anklets and dangling, decorative chains attached or fastened directly onto them. Wear these personality-packed shoes with black capris or an elegant, yet unadorned dress.
