The online jewelry market is booming, despite the decline in sales in 2020. This summer, people across the globe are celebrating the commencement of an era of new normality by once again donning their most colorful clothing, accessories, and jewelry to welcome the summer. Whether fine jewelry or costume pieces are your thing, make sure you’re on the cutting edge of fashion by sporting one of these hot trends.
Harry Styles, Emma Stone, and fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni are just a few fashion icons to celebrate the beauty of pearls. From high-end brands like Chopard right through to demi-fine jewelry houses like Monica Vinader, pearls are all the rage in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. Wear them as charms, opt for irregular-looking natural pearls, and stack them up with pieces in mixed metal designs. The key is to embrace their glamor while also bringing a bit of street chic into the equation.
XL Statement Earrings
Fashionistas are ready to give home life a miss and paint the town red, and they’re showing their love of the party lifestyle with extra large statement earrings in colorful gemstones and crystals. Renowned fashion house Chanel has gorgeous dangling earrings bearing its iconic logo, as well as star-shaped designs in metal and crystal. Gucci has gorgeous double G-earrings in tarnished gold and black crystal, while Dior has happy hoops bearing letter charms in all the colors of the rainbow. Think of these pieces as artistic works as well as jewelry items to be proudly displayed and safely stored. Because statement earrings are large and have oddly shaped components, display them safely in a jewelry cabinet (an open drawer), stand or box. Leave at least one statement piece in a cute trinket tray crafted from mother-of-pearl or gleaming metal.
If you love chain jewelry and already have a sizable collection, pull out your largest pieces this summer. Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Carolina Herrera are just a few jewelry firms that are determined to turn chains into the star component of the most sartorial ensembles. Chains this year are shining in various colors of metal, and iced designs are definitely big among the stars. For something a little different, check out Carolina Herrera’s mixed material designs in yellow gold, black ceramic, and white ceramic.
Splashes of color remind us that life is bright and beautiful, and this year, designers have definitely resorted to vivid hues to lift buyers’ moods. Versace, Jason Wu, Anni Lu and other designers have created a host of subtle bead necklaces, often mixed with larger yellow gold charms, statement pearls, and pretty charms. Bead necklaces and bracelets stack beautifully alongside chains, charms, and other jewelry pieces, so make sure to wear yours with your all-time favorites this summer.
Summer 2021 is all about celebrating the return of glamor and color. Just a few trends to watch out for include beaded necklaces and bracelets, statement chains, and large earrings. Pearl power is making its presence felt, but in a new, more edgy way, and this season, it also makes the perfect stacking companion.
