There are observable fashion trends in jewelry just as there are in clothes and other accessories. The year 2019 is still fairly young, but enough time has passed to observe the directions that jewelry fashion is moving in. The trends seem to be moving away from the subtle and toward the extravagant and eye-catching.
1. Ubiquitous Charms
Charms have always been common on bracelets, necklaces, and other angel wing jewelry pieces, but they are now showing up more often than ever and in places that you might never expect, such as on belts.
2. Gold Necklaces in Chain Links
Both chain links and gold are perennially popular when it comes to necklace styles, but the look is becoming bigger and bolder, with exaggerated shapes. Look for gold chain links in bracelets as well.
3. Mismatched Earrings
A pair of earrings that are different from, but somehow complementary to, one another is a striking look that arrests attention and challenges people.
Whether they are actual shells or other materials fabricated to mimic their appearance, jewelry pieces incorporating this beachy, breezy, sunny fun motif are a common sight on the runway and unlikely to go away anytime soon. Colorful beads and metallic accents are common accouterments on seashell pieces like necklaces and earrings.
5. Open Concept
Open cuff necklaces and crescent-moon shaped hoop earrings represent variations on well-worn jewelry designs that arrest the eye and invite a closer look.
Given the obsession of the fashion world with branding, perhaps it’s not surprising to see that logo necklaces in several different styles persist as an emerging trend.
Whether it’s enamel, resin, or precious stones, bold, saturated colors are making a strong statement on runways and red carpets. It’s the color that is important, not the material used.
2019 jewelry fashion trends are likely to shock those of a more conservative bent with their unapologetic assertiveness and nonconformity.
