Jewelry trends always emerge a bit more slowly than fashion trends do. There’s usually a lag of a season or two before something seen on the runway sets a fire in the jewelry industry, and Summer 2019 is no different. For the transitional period between Spring and Fall when it comes to spotting a jewelry trend, I’ve noticed that this year, it’s all about the earrings…
Abstract and Geometric Earrings of every metal finish and in every shape and size are still hugely popular for every budget from haute couture all the way to big box store. Huge hoops emblazoned with bling, fringe and feathers are still a popular look from Spring, as well as the emerging twisted, twirled and entwined metallics for Fall. Hoops dominated the Spring runway and will continue to be a strong look in the coming season. Trust me, if you want to be on trend, the number one piece of jewelry to wear right now is a large earring.
Floral Motifs are always a Summer favorite, and this year is no different. Matching sets of jewelry, once called Parures, feature a bracelet, necklace and earrings in colorful gemstones or better yet, an updated set of pearls set in floral-like clusters. How very ladylike!
Colorful Enamel jewelry is a look that began to catch fire in early Spring and pieces featuring Enamel are beautiful and classic way to polish off your outfit. Bright colors combined with precious jewels and lustrous metal finishes are always appropriate and gorgeous whether it be a ring, bracelet or earrings. Better yet, get a set!
Mixed Link Chains are another continuing trend, with oxidized blacks and gunmetal finishes for fall, and also in mixed material and multi link choker length necklaces. Vogue Magazine is calling chains one of the 7 Biggest Jewelry Trends of 2019, along with jewelry and charm-style chains dripping with coins. Look for coins on bracelets, shorter choker-style necklaces and as the focal pieces on pendants.
