01 May 2017 Jewelry Trends
Trends change all the time, and in the fast-paced world of jewelry and fashion, you want to be able to stay on top of the times as they change.
For all of you Generation X’ers out there, you’ll be happy to know that bold 80’s style earrings have made a comeback (now if you only had a reason to use that hair crimper again…). Big gold hoop earrings, or dangles are making their way back and becoming a must-have for a night out. These pieces are versatile too. They can be worn with a cocktail dress at a formal function or just a night out with the girls.
Enamel has made a comeback and a modern take on an old classic. Enamel provides a splash of color and texture to an otherwise homogenous piece of jewelry. As art goes, oftentimes so does the world of fashion and jewelry design. As long as this remains hot in the world of art, you can expect it to remain trendy in the world of jewelry.
Pearls, the longtime standby for a pinch of elegance and formality, have recently been worn in new and interesting ways, really pushing the envelope and getting away from that stigma that pearls were just something your mother wore.
Charm bracelets in the past may have opened the door for charm necklaces to get a foot in the door. The same general principle applies, but when someone speaks to you, they’re more apt to look you in the face and your neckline is more obvious than your wrist so it’s not wonder that these necklaces have taken off.
Heart-shaped jewelry has captured an older audience. No longer just for children, some heart designs have captured the imagination of innovators in the jewelry industry and it has paid off because women are wearing them more and more often.
This year is all about shape and geometry. Today’s designs emphasize more angularity and less ovals and circles. Polygonal designs with rhombi, trapezoids, octagons, and hexagons, or things with sharp, distinct angles are trending.
Trends change all the time and we do our best to stay abreast of them when they do change. You can rest assured that if we don’t have what you want, we can always design a custom piece for you.
