Jewelry Trends

 Monday, July 9, 2012

Happy Monday and I hope everyone had a good weekend. All last week I wrote about preppy clothing trends but I did not mention any jewelry trends of the summer so here we go!

Thousands of people tune in to see the latest designs of Mercedes Benz fashion week and other runway shows but clothing is not the only fashion that is featured. Thats right! Jewelry is just as important to fashion and has trends that have already come out for Spring/Summer 2013!

Lets get back to the present though and look at the trends of this summer.

Statement Rings

ringsYves Saint Laurent cocktail ring, $420 / Wildfox Couture flower ring / Stella & Dot cluster ring / Mango stone jewelry, $28 / 24 karat gold jewelry / Kimberly McDonald diamond filigree ring, $22,805 / River Island black jewelry, $6.22 / Boho jewelry

This summer the newest rings are meant to stand out. There is definitely an animal theme in this seasons rings.  I personally love a big starfish or a bow on my finger and am always looking for a gorgeous ring to add to my collection.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier Earrings are back! Although smaller this time around. I particularly want to spotlight the chandelier earrings with this seasons gemstones like a coral, mint, or sea-foam blue because they are on trend and really pretty. The earrings really can make an outfit and all look feminine and girly! Baubles chandelier earrings can be the perfect accessory for a preppy outfit.

Bib and Multi layer Necklaces


Cord necklace / Amrita Singh gold plated necklace / Chain jewelry / Zara black bib necklace / Teardrop necklace / Kate Spade jewelry / Kate Spade paisley jewelry / J.Crew 18k jewelry / GUESS by Marciano box chain necklace

As a blogger and specifically as a preppy blogger I see tons of the J. Crew Bauble necklace but that doesnt mean that Im tired of the style! Those necklaces are so well done, and make such a statement, that its only a matter of time until I get one of my own! The bib necklaces and multi-layer necklaces are a great way to jazz up a plain shirt, dress, or an outfit in need of some interest and can make a look appear more expensive.

Other Trends
The inspirations behind other jewelry trends this summer are florals and the sea! Tribal prints and geometric styles are also in style as well as my favorite trend: Pearls!

So what is your favorite jewelry trend this summer?

Joyness Sparkles July 9, 2012 at 2:05 PM favorite trend? I can't say as I follow the trends, I prefer classics myself. Every once in a very long while something fun might catch my eye, but for the most part I try and stay classic.

Great post and lovely picutres. :)

I love the necklaces & rings, but I'm not much of a jewelry person so I don't really have anything 'stylish' in that realm. Doesn't mean that I still do not lust after it when I see it thought :)

I'm loving bib necklaces at the moment, as well as jewellery with a little bit of unexpected edge like a spike or a little gold skull. It's a nice way to balance out a girly outfit!

Elizabeth {Ms Classic Glamour} July 9, 2012 at 7:33 PM

Hey! Love the blog. Quick question - do you think a statement ring with a funky dusty neon nail would be too much? I want to try the trend but I love holo nail polish too much to give up and I know you understand that :)

The bib type necklaces are superb. It's pretty overwhelming how handmade jewellery pieces improved over the years. Keep updating your readers.
