2016 Jewelry Trends – Trending Necklaces, Rings, Earrings & More

WR_Blog_697x283_Header_0616_01

Summer is almost here and it’s time to refresh your jewelry box with the upcoming summer jewelry trends! During winter, scarves and sweaters make it hard for you to show off your jewelry. But summer is here for us to shine again. So keep reading and keep up your summer look!

1. Minimalist Jewelry

While some trends die after a couple of seasons, minimalist jewelry is here to stay. More than a trend, minimalist jewelry is a concept: an effective way to reach gorgeousness by wearing tiny, delicate and affordable pieces of jewelry. Geometric designs and thin chains are conquering summer looks. If you want to go minimal, layered thin chains, tiny sparkling studs, thin stacked rings, and mini-charms, are a must-have. And of course, let’s not forget, the star of minimal jewels: the lariat necklace. Unlike many items that go out of trend quickly, minimalist jewels are basics that will always find a place in your wardrobe!

When it comes to fashion trends, the saying “there’s nothing new under the sun” is half true half false, and the chokers trends prove it. The 90’s choker is back, but the 2016 choker has been taken to a whole new level by fashion and jewelry design houses and celebrities, on and off the runways. From a simple suede string tied around the neck to gold and leather or rhinestone chokers, this trend is incredibly versatile and offers a different variant for every occasion. Here are some lovely chokers:

3. Mismatched Earrings

This year is all about asymmetry. And mismatched earrings are one of the most effective ways to create it. You’ve seen them on runways, you’ve seen them on red carpets, and it’s time to bring them to your closet. Besides, they’re a great way to give a new life to that earring that lost its pair! Combine an extra-large earring with a tiny stud, or wear a pair with the same design but different colors. Many fine jewelry designers like Jennifer Fisher, Barbela Design and Hortense Jewelry offer the option of buying their earrings as a single, and some of them even created mismatched earrings.

4. Asymmetrical Rings

Following the asymmetry trend, a completely new — and mindblowing — approach to cluster rings has born to take this classic ring setting to a whole new level. Combining precious gemstones and diamonds, these one-of-their-kind rings are a true statement. A trend that is growing among both engagement rings and right-hand rings, these asymmetrical cluster rings provide originality, distinction, and a sophisticated look. Check out some of the more stunning asymmetrical rings:

You don’t really find yourself in the minimalist trend? Don’t worry! Just like there’s a shoe for every foot, there’s a perfect earrings pair for every jewelry lover. And if you love statement earrings, this is the year to go crazy and wear extra-large ones. Shoulder-dusters, door-knockers, and hoop earrings are some of the options to drive the spotlight to your face and create an elongated effect.

6. Gold Layering

As jewelry goes more and more delicate and minimal, gold necklace layering grows more and more as a trend. Combine dainty pendant necklaces of slightly different lengths for a sophisticated look. Don’t be scared to mix different colors, like white and rose gold, and even try and mix diamonds with gemstones. And if you’re one to take risks, combine a choker with a lariat necklace.

7. Cuffs

Another trend that’s proving the 90’s are back is ear and arm cuffs. An edgy accessory that’s taking over red carpets and street fashion since the last few years, cartilage cuffs can be found in sparkly diamond versions and plain metal variants. Repossi is one of the top jewelry design houses that’s bringing ear cuffs back with the Serti sur Vide collection.

Both upper and lower arm cuffs are also in vogue. Celebs like Rihanna and Selena Gomez were spotted wearing arm cuffs and since then, we all knew these bracelets were going to be a hot trend this summer. There’s a design to suit every taste, so choose yours and upgrade your summer look!
