Every year, the world of fashion offers new takes on how we express ourselves. Jewelry, in particular, holds a special place in our hearts and wardrobes. It transcends mere accessory status, often becoming a statement of our personality, memories, or even aspirations. As we dive into this year, several jewelry trends are set to define the modern aesthetic. Here are seven sterling jewelry styles and collections you will not be able to resist.
Chunky Chains: Bold and Unmissable
Remember the delicate chain links we adored? This year is all about going big. Chunky chains, whether in gold, silver, or embellished with gemstones, are making a robust statement. Necklaces or bracelets, these oversized links scream confidence and can elevate even the simplest outfit.
Asymmetrical Earrings: The Beauty in Imbalance
Perfection lies in imperfection. Asymmetrical earrings – where each earring differs from the other – are trending like never before. Whether they are mismatched in size, design, or even color, this trend is for those who love to break the mold. At Laurel Burch Studios, we have embraced this trend wholeheartedly, offering a variety of bespoke asymmetrical earrings, including our Primal Tear Earrings, which allow you to express your unique style and individuality.
Colorful Gemstones: A Riot of Colors
While diamonds will always be a girl's best friend, colorful gemstones are becoming increasingly popular. Sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and even lesser-known stones are taking center stage in rings, necklaces, and more. They bring vibrancy and offer a personalized touch to each jewelry piece.
Anklets: A Nostalgic Comeback
The 90s are back, and with them, the allure of anklets. This once beloved accessory is making a significant comeback, but with a contemporary twist. Think delicate chains, tiny charms, and even layered pieces. Perfect for the summer, anklets are the subtle statement we did not know we needed.
Sustainable Jewelry: Elegance with Responsibility
With a growing emphasis on sustainability, many jewelry brands are now focusing on ethically sourced materials. Recycled metals, lab-grown diamonds, and fair-trade gemstones reflect a shift towards eco-friendly fashion. It is style meeting responsibility in the best way possible.
Personalized Pieces: Tell Your Story
Jewelry has always been personal, but this year, it is even more about telling your story. Name necklaces, birthstone rings, and even jewelry with personalized coordinates of a special place are all the rage. It is all about wearing pieces that resonate with personal memories and moments.
Multi-layered Necklaces: Stacked with Style
Why settle for one when you can wear multiple? Multi-layered necklaces, combining chokers with mid-length and longer necklaces, offer a tiered look that is both chic and sophisticated. Whether they are plain chains, adorned with pendants, or a mix of both, this style can easily elevate any neckline. To get the layered look just right, consider our curated selection at Laurel Burch Studios. Our Siamese Cat and Flowering Heart necklaces are some options that blend elegance with personalization, making sure your gift is as unique as she is.
All in all, jewelry is more than just metal and gemstones. It is an expression, a form of art, and a piece of history. These modern jewelry styles echo the sentiment of the times – a blend of nostalgia, innovation, and a deep-rooted sense of individuality. As you update your jewelry collection this year, remember that the best pieces are not just trendy but will resonate with your personal style and story.
