My job as a jewelry buyer is to keep an eye out for the next big trend, I need to know what everyone is shopping for currently and how that’s going to continue (or not) going forward. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed it too, but jewelry is trending as a whole right now and there is a lot of exciting newness coming from so many different brands! Not sure where we are all wearing this jewelry since we’re still staying home for the most part, but I’m not questioning it, just embracing it.
I could go on for days about the jewelry industry but I’ll keep this somewhat short and will just pinpoint 3 of my favorite trends happening right now!
CHAINS: I’m sure you’ve seen chain necklaces all over your instagram feed and Pinterest. Chains, especially the chunkier chains, haven’t been a big trend the past few years but it’s recently exploded. Not only are chain necklaces popular in all shapes and sizes, but chain hoop earrings and chain bracelets are also seen everywhere right now. Wear them alone, or all layered up, and you can’t go wrong!
COINS & RELIGIOUS CHARMS: This trend speaks to the boho girl! Coins and crosses are everywhere and have been for a while but they’re not going anywhere. Crosses and religious charms (like saints or other figures) can obviously be worn for religious reasons, but they’re also being worn as a fashion statement. I really love the look of layered coins and chains to give a bold look.
BUTTERFLIES: I honestly don’t know where this trend came from, it seemingly started out of nowhere! They’re such a Summery icon, but this trend is also carrying into Fall 2020 and even into 2021! Butterflies give off a sweet, feminine connotation. These dainty styles can be easily layered with other necklaces, or worn on their own for a dainty look.
