If you follow social media and fashion shows you’ll see five trends emerging for early 2019 in fine jewelry. It seems that the minimalist jewelry direction has reversed and big and bold will dominate. Color, size, and quantity is important in following 2019 style.
A mixture of colored gems has been mentioned quite a bit in our jewelry blog and it seems that this trend will grow even stronger in 2019. Combining different sizing of gemstones along with complementary colors is a great way to accessorize 2019. Accompany your gemstone with a larger metal set or chain and you’ll flow right along next year.
Layers of Jewelry
Hearkening back to the 80’s and 90’s, layered chains and lengths of chains was seen extensively at fashion shows this year. Long skinnier chains combined with bulkier chains along with gemstones is a great way to accentuate your style. For added flair stack up on the bangles. You’ll want to invest in some large danglers to go along with your chunky chains.
To go along with the emerging trend of chunkier chains and layering is big earrings. Large hoops and earrings that dangle. Feathers, leaves and abstract images will dominate. Look at combining a hoop with a nice sized cross or disc. Again the trend of bigger is better isn’t just for chains. Add some dangling color to you earrings will set you on the path to fashion dominance.
Circles and Spheres
As the trend of huge hoops has continued into next 2019 so will the affinity for circles. Not just hoops, but solid circles and different types of fashion stones in the shape of spheres. Pearls continue to be a dominant natural precious gem along with tear-drop multicolored gemstones. Don’t be afraid to mix non-traditional materials of glass and crystal with gold chains and earrings.
Chokers came back into style a few years ago. For 2019 chokers continue to be a huge fashion trend, now however you get larger chokers as compared to daintier more elegant. Large chain and thick material chokers were often seen at spring and fall fashion events. And as we’ve seen for 2019 bigger and bolder is better, you’ll see that trend continue into chokers and choker accessories.
You could say that 2019 is almost a trip back in time to 1989 as far as fine jewelry fashion goes. Brighter colors and bold chains and bracelets will dominate. Even the charms and danglers are bolder, both in size and color. Do not be afraid to mix colors, nor metals. A marrying of fabrics and precious metals together is exactly what will set you apart in 2019. Bold, beautiful, and colorful is the framework for 2019 accessorizing.
