Add sparkle to your holiday attire
Take your wardrobe to a whole new level with this season’s biggest trends in holiday jewelry. Nothing spices up that little black dress more than some bold statement earrings, a few stackable bracelets or an eye-catching chunky chain necklace. Some of the world’s most prestigious designers presented fabulous jewelry accessories on the catwalks – many that captured a strong 80’s vibe.
Here are some of the top holiday jewelry trends that are making waves in 2018.
Bold drop earrings
Large drop earrings were all the rage on New York and Milan runways this season. No matter your style, a pair of statement dangly earrings are an easy way to perk up your cocktail attire or dress up a simple white button-down blouse and black trousers. This year’s biggest hits featured playful designs, including heart shapes, curved discs, imitation pearls and colored stones. Jade, in all its lovely shades of green, is officially back for 2018. Winter 2018 catwalks also showed a lot of nature-inspired statement earrings with delicate floral patterns surrounding mini pearls and gemstones to leaves and foliage.
Statement hoop earrings
While last year was all about oversized nineties-inspired gold hoops, the trend has shifted more toward an abstract 80’s look. This holiday’s hoop earrings will make your outfit pop, thanks to their bright colors, interesting materials (plastics, resin and ceramic) and unique mixed prints and geometric shapes.
Chunky gold chains
Delicate layering chains will always have their place in your jewelry collection, but this holiday season, designers have shifted their focus toward heavier pieces crafted in 14 and 24k yellow gold. From chain rings, bracelets and necklaces, these fabulous creations are sure to elicit compliments. For those whose skin tone appreciates a warmer hue, look for heavy chain necklaces and bracelets in rose gold.
Whether they adorn stud earrings, engagement rings, stackable bangles or pendant necklaces, colored gemstones and colored glass stones are garnering major attention in the jewelry world this holiday season. From bright blues and soft lilacs to brilliant reds, designers are incorporating a rainbow of stand-out colors in their 2018 collections. According to Gemworld International, greenish-blue sapphires are in high demand, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to look posh. Look for jewelry accessories using turquoise, mother-of-pearl, coral, opal, malachite, labradorite and green onyx.
Translucent fashion was a smash hit on the Spring 2018 runway, with models wearing transparent boots and toting see-through handbags. This transparent trend has entered the realm of fine jewelry, giving rise to lovely creations fashioned out of plastic, lucite, glass and accented with crystals.
Enamel is also making a comeback, adding a nice splash of color to bangles, choker necklaces and hoop earrings. This fun-loving and low maintenance material is breathing new life into an array of fine jewelry trends. Take the Starburst Block Party Enamel Choker by Roxanne Assoulin, which features brilliant blues, yellows, oranges, teals and pinks.
