The jewelry world is set for a shakeup in the coming decade. Tired of the trend for minimalist necklaces, bracelets and earrings that defined much of the 2010s, designers and fashionistas alike are starting to have more fun with color, size and styling. If you’re wondering how to keep on top of the latest jewelry fashions in the coming months and years, we’ve put together a quick guide to some of the biggest emerging trends.
It has long been known that people who are considered to have a winter complexion look best in deep blues, reds and even hot pinks. Winter people will be happy to hear that the hottest colors for winter 2016-2017 jewelry collections will rock their world!
Sapphire blue's with their ever-so deep and brilliant hues top the list of what's trending. Beads and gems that in the blue spectrum come in many shapes and sizes; all are pleasing to they eye. At the edge of blues are the deep purples that are just as desirable in bracelets and charms.
Next to beautiful blue you'll find ridiculous reds. Gems with super-deep, multi-layered tones that scream "pick me!" are ready to make their appearance as the snow falls.
Deep, rich colors are popular in the winter - particularly if they're in warm tones! However, now that summer is here it's time to trade in those deep colors for a less rich palette. Think light, bright, and fresh colors for summer. If your accessories were food, now is the time to trade in hearty stews for refreshing salads.
With that in mind, may we suggest these colors for your summer jewelry?
Your flip-flops have never looked so good! This summer, pair the perennially-popular beach shoes with beaded handmade anklets. Summer sandals or shoes take on a more important look with the right anklet. Even bare feet look stylish and chic when they're adorned with a little shimmer and shine.
But not just any anklets. You want something fun, sophisticated, and totally you -- and well-made, hand-beaded anklets are perfect. You can even order your special colors, beads, and stones for a one-of-a-kind treasure. Here are a few suggestions for adorning your summer tootsies.
Summer is time for fun. So for summer jewelry trends, forget your favorite pearls or your grandmother's cameo brooch. It's time to sparkle. It's time to shine. It's time to be a little frivolous, even whimsical.
Summer is big, bright, and colorful. Flowers are blooming; butterflies are flying. Your jewelry should be bigger, brighter, and more colorful than you might normally wear.
When the hankering to buy some new handmade jewelry hits you, chances are your brain thinks more in terms of “earrings” or “necklace” than in terms of “violet” or “nectarine.” But choosing jewelry based on color families adds a dash of whimsy to your shopping list and injects a large dose of fashion into even the most monochrome of wardrobes.
When choosing colors for your jewelry, always remember Pantone. What began as a printing company in the 1950s, Pantone now dictates what hues will be hot in the fashion and design industries in each upcoming season.
