2016 Holiday Jewelry Trends
Fashions are constantly evolving, even when it comes to jewelry. Whether you prefer modern funky attire or understated classics, adding a trendy jewelry piece brings a freshness and relevance to your look.
Vogue’s Fall/Winter 2016-2017 Fashion Week offered a glimpse into the upcoming holiday jewelry trends on the runways in the world fashion centers. The most popular styles are attention-getting plays on both classic and modern pieces.
Here is a run-down of some of the “it” looks to work into your collection.
Trends in earrings
A pair of earrings can complete a look but the recent incarnations are far edgier than a tasteful pair of simple studs.
Several new looks are gaining momentum. A single earring, worn without a match, is one of the biggest trends to hit the runways in New York, London, and Paris over about the past year and a half. A related movement gaining steam is mis-matched earrings; designers are showcasing two styles in one look with non-matching earrings. Designers are also taking a “bigger is better” approach to earrings; look for statement earrings that cover the ear, which offer more opportunity to truly personalize the ear.
Take a look at some of the earrings offered by Madison L. Designs, featuring natural colored diamonds. These attention-grabbers look beautiful in pairs or worn singly.
Modern take on vintage necklaces
Pearls are a classic that will always have a place in the wardrobe but they are taking on a modern twist this season. They are being worn in single strands or layers in varying sizes, lengths, and shades. Two other neckware trends also flooding the runways are over-sized chokers and statement necklaces that stand out on a backdrop of minimalist clothing and layers upon layers – whether they are pearls, chains, or talisman.
You cannot go wrong adding some pearls to your jewelry collection. Check out the recent offerings by Honora for a modern twist on the classic.
Unusual materials stand out in jewelry
Designers are taking advantage of the ability of unusual materials to grab attention in fine jewelry. For example, uncut stones have been making a regular appearance , whether dangling from a necklace or being featured in a single or asymmetric pair of earrings. Safety pins are also taking a feature role; no longer just utilitarian items, they are being worked into statement pieces like necklaces and earrings.
Mix of edgy and feminine attention-grabbing looks
Jewelry materials, settings, and display are all used to command attention. Some favorites that are taking the stage include edgy punk looks incorporating chains, chrome, and black leather, and talisman jewelry like charms and symbols. Look for a mix of crystals and colors that evoke the Baroque style. Another way jewelry is taking the stage is by not hiding under clothing. Bracelets and cuffs are appearing over the sleeves, even above the elbow.
Try on a design by Dev Valencia. These timeless creations are heirloom pieces to be passed down through the generations and are the perfect choice to display on top of clothing instead of hidden underneath.
