Trending Jewelry 2020 – 5 Jewelry Trends You Need to Know This Year

A Happy New Year is in order I believe, sooo Happy New Year!

Right now you’re overwhelmed with trying not to fail on your New Year’s resolutions only a week in, while simultaneously pondering where in the world you’re going to store all your holiday decorations. What IF I said not to pack away all your hot 2019 fashions?

You’re now sitting there thinking, “hmm okay she’s got my attention” I’ll keep reading. Well all you have to read is one more word …

JEWELRY

I know in the past we tend to fall into this routine of “starting fresh,” and retiring our most worn and beloved pieces in the new year, but this is 2020. It’s a new decade and with that lets start a new trend and NOT tuck away everything just yet.

This is the first year, in quite a while, where trends from the year prior are not only rolling into the new year they’re thriving. In some cases, these trends did so well they are intensifying, for lack of a better word, so if you weren’t on the bandwagon before, it’s time to hop because the party is just getting started.

Cheers to a new year and these 5 jewelry trends that are roaring into 2020!

Trending Jewelry 2020

1.      FUNKY/CHUNKY STATEMENT EARRINGS

This is a trend that even if you haven’t participated in yet, you’ve noticed because lit-er-a-lly you can’t miss it. Yes, if you were wondering that was my sad attempt at a joke.

Trending-Jewelry-2020-Chunky-Statement-Earrings

The versatile thing about this trend is that there is an infinite amount of ways you can style it. From the timeless basic tee to a complex outfit. Make sure you’re sitting down because I’m about the say the unthinkable. Mix patterns with patterns and colors that you’ve been told time and time again clash because duhh .. that’s the trend!

In its essence.

Let me put it this way. Think, “the funkier the better.”

Even our celebrities have endorsed this. Taylor Swift wore a funky pair of clear-green-see- through hoops to her SNL performance and Julia Roberts sported a pair of teal almost flower-like dangles to the British Fashion Awards.

This trend has certainly made its presence.

2.      PERSONALIZED

Now, I want to clarify, before you lose validation in me, that I’m not going to preach about the initial necklace that took over 2k15. You probably had one, your friend probably had one, heck even I had one…and honestly way too many items that were monogrammed that year.

This is NOT what I’m referring to.

More so, I’m referring to the trend of having sophisticated pieces of jewelry that you couldn’t pick up at any store, for any person in your life.

In case I’ve perplexed you, let me redeem myself.

The hint to this trend is that its personalized for YOU, so only YOU, and people YOU choose know the message.

As an outsider all you see is a clean, simple, sleek bracelet but for the person wearing it they see a subtle, but powerful message they carry with themselves all day.

One other way I’ve seen this trend is with a necklace. Basically, same concept here but not Morse Code, back to English.

Trending-Jewelry-2020-Hidden-Message-Necklaces

The benefit to this is you’re actually doing two different things at once, even if you’re not aware of it. Coin pendent necklaces are a hot take right now, so mixing that with a hidden message necklace (with inspirational phrases like “I am strong” and “Let go of what you cannot change”) is a sure-fire way to stay relevant.

3.      ALL ABOUT STONE

This trend brings life-no correction, personality to an outfit in a way that traditional metal can’t.

Stones are dimensional.

Take a moment and look at any piece of stone jewelry. It’s not flat. It has different facets and each is imperfectly perfect. Each tell their own story.

Trending-Jewelry-2020-Gemstone-Jewelry

The reason this is up and coming is because it appeals to a broader audience. Whether its fashion or not if “it’s trendy,” some people want nothing to do with it.

Typically, this means the item will be over sold, mass produced in numerous colors and will take over your social media feeds. But this is different. There isn’t one stone that designers are able to chisel into and take what they want. Therefore, no two stones are the same.

This allows those not keen on trends to still partake.

A great reference point for this trend is the Brandon Maxwell Spring 2020 Ready-To-Wear Collection. Looking at photographs from the runway show, it’s evident just how much of a role stones will carry this turn of the decade.

4.      Can you believe all the hoopla?

Two words Jennifer Fisher. Three words Mamma Jamma Hoop.

This is the single pair of earrings alone that started the hoop frenzy. Personally, I love them, but I also recognize the fact that honestly there isn’t anything special about them. Or at least nothing that I haven’t seen before.

Since these blew up designers are running with it and honestly, why not? The hoop is classic, timeless and easy to alter. Think about it. The thickness, sparkles, ridges just one tiny alteration makes it completely different.

Gold-Hoops

Just look at these. Both are “gold hoops,” lightly put. I bet though, you just looking at these is thinking “I’d wear those to the office and those for a date night.” Or maybe you only like one pair. Simply saying they are just gold hoops is insufficient.

Silver-Hoops

This trend is a no-brainer. And even when it isn’t trendy anymore, it’s a classic. So if there’s only one trend you decide to partake in 2020 I definitely think this one is worth investing in.

5.      ESSENTIAL OIL

Did you know you could wear your essential oils? And I don’t mean wear it like perfume. There is jewelry specifically made to hold your essential oil all day and you would never know.

When I first heard about this trend, I was under the impression that the jewelry would stand out, look kind of wonky to be honest. Much to my surprise, the reason I never noticed this before was because you wouldn’t unless you knew. The jewelry looks completely normal, like pieces you and I wear everyday!

Trending-Jewelry-2020-Essential-Oil-Jewelry

Pay extra close attention to each of these pieces. What do they each have in common? All have at least one bead that looks like a mini cheese grater. THIS is what I call the magic bead, but to others it’s known as a “lava bead.” All you have to do is grab your favorite essential oil and put about two drops directly onto the lava bead. And poooof you’re now wearing your essential oils.

The popularity of these oils has slowly taken over the market. We find them in our bath bombs, body lotion and even household cleaners. It didn’t take too long until the integration of jewelry and essential oils was created.

The main part about this trend and why it will be powerful in 2020 is that it’s not age or gender restrictive. Truly anybody, anywhere, can hop on this trend and have zero issues what-so-ever.

Now isn’t that nice to hear? 2019 has come to a close, but we welcome 2020 with open arms and are ahead of the trends. Is it too early to begin guessing what 2021 will bring?

The Benefits of Wearing Gemstones

Fashion Benefits of Wearing Gemstones

One of the main reasons real gemstones are some of the most popular fashion accessories around is due to their uniqueness. When real stone is used, not only do you get all of their benefits, but you also get the added benefit of the one of a kind, gorgeous natural cuts and patterns of gemstone; not a single piece is the same! Gemstone necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings also make for surprisingly easy styling. They are well known for the bohemian touch they add to peasant blouses and long tiered skirts, but also work well for:

  • An all-around classic everyday piece
  • To dress up a basic outfit (select the chunkier gemstone pieces)
  • Their unique color to create a theme for your outfit
  • A talked about piece/conversation starter (discuss the benefits of your piece)
  • A formal event (select the daintier gemstone pieces)
  • A personal motivational gift for yourself or a friend (what power/inspiration do you need more of in your life?!)
