The 5 top trends to be set this year are: Exotic Journal, Geometrics, Modern Pearls, Mixed Metals and Industrial Arts. Below you'll find three of my favorites and some examples for a bit of inspiration.
This trends consists of bold shapes, highlighted by cutouts with a strong use of metals or overshared gemstones. I love cutouts in jewelry especially when it comes to bracelets and rings. It creates a free spirited and fun approach to your jewelry. From fun circles to diagonal lines and curves the possibilities are endless.
Think about your Grandmother's favorite jewelry, but in a fashion-forward, uber hip way. This new take on pearls would look great with closet staples from a white tee and jeans to your beloved little black dress. These earrings would make for amazing statement jewelry.
This trend reminded me the female version of a knight in shining armor. Get ready to battle the everyday world with jewelry elements consisting of dark metals and matte finishes. For added drama, you might find it mixed with beautiful black diamonds or even chainmail.
