Jewelry is the perfect detail to complete any look and turn it into a unique masterpiece. Many men and women cannot leave their house without their favorite necklace, bracelet or ring. Without their jewelry, they feel less themselves. Timeless pieces that withstand the ages or regularly changing your fixed set of jewelry, it is what jewelry trends are all about in 2020.
A new season asks for new centerpieces in your personal jewelry collection. But which items are the most promising to invest in Summer and Fall of 2020? We take a look at the ten most popular jewelry trends that help you dot the I’s on your outfit.
1. Mixing and matching earrings
In the past, you needed to wear the same earring in each ear in order to look put together. Yet, in 2020 this look is completely outdated. Combine different earrings, contrast different styles and lengths in order to create your own signature look. In 2020 you buy your earrings separately to mix and match according to your mood and style. We also notice the ear party is making its comeback. Mix multiple small earrings in one ear and use ear cuffs for a more personal expression of your style.
2. Statement necklaces
Dainty, delicate necklaces in a more minimalist style are not only unbelievably elegant, they are completely on trend. Yet, sometimes all you want is standing out in the crowd with an eyecatcher. In comes the statement necklace. Impressive and unique designs can turn a simple outfit into a more refined creation. Remarkable gemstones, chains,… everything is possible this season. Furthermore, your statement piece can serve as a basis for layered necklaces. Combine your necklace with a few minimalist ones and pick up an extra trend.
3. Layer up
Does a statement necklace not really fit your personal style? Then the mixing different minimalist necklaces is more your cup of tea. Combine different hangers and necklaces of different lengths to paint a more complex and interesting picture. Toy around with different materials and colors to define your own style.
4. If you like it, then you should put multiple rings on it
Why would you settle with just one ring? The newest ring trend demands combining as much rings on one hand as possible. The more, the merrier. Mix different delicate rings on one hand or even on the same finger. However, you can also try mixing and matching different styles. Or opt for a few statement centerpieces and add some more minimalist rings to make the picture complete. Don’t forget your pinky or thumb for the ultimate bohemian look.
5. Ring stacking
Do you want to take the ring trends even a step further? In 2020 you combine multiple delicate rings on one finger: three small, fine rings on your index finger, your wedding and engagement ring on your ring finger and add a few minimalist rings on your pinky, not only at the base of the finger but on the top as well for a more alternative look. Try combining silver and white gold with yellow gold and rose gold for a finishing touch.
6. Bicolor mixing and matching
Matching silver and gold jewelry? While this was an absolute no-go in the past, this summer we notice bicolor jewelry entering the fashion scene. Use such a unique piece as the basis for your outfit and add some subtle, similar jewels in silver or white gold or warmer tints of gold. Or opt for the ultimate mixing and matching game by combining different necklaces and bracelets in gold and silver to make an even more trendy statement. Just take one simple rule into account: one third of the jewelry needs to be in silver and two thirds in gold – or visa versa.
7. Big earrings
Not only statement necklaces are stealing the show in fall and winter. Earrings can make a statement of themselves as well. Length, size and the type of hanger are the focal point in 2020. Earrings need to spice up your outfit and look this year. Fans of the trend can take it a step further by personalizing their earrings with a hanger with their initials, gemstones or can opt for a coin as hanger.
8. Personalize your jewelry for a more unique look
A personal piece of jewelry symbolizing a beautiful memory, a milestone or meaningful moment in life is the ultimate 2020 trend. Due to the current situation, we value moments with loved ones, family and friends even more and symbolizing those moments with a personal piece of jewelry that has its own story makes sure you cherish and love them more. Engrave your jewelry with initials, a date, a meaningful text or a finger print. Or give personalized jewelry as a gift, full of love.
9. Birth jewelry
No moment is as beautiful, intimate and miraculous as giving birth. Cherishing the warmth and love of this moment in the form of personalized birth jewelry (a birth necklace, bracelet, ring or hanger) makes sure you can always carry this moment with you. Birth jewelry is the perfect gift to surprise a new mom with. Make it personal by adding a diamond to the wedding ring or necklace, or engrave the heartbeat or finger print of the baby in a hanger, together with the name and date of birth.
10. Rings for men
Not only women love jewelry. In 2020 men try to make a mark on their outfit as well with jewelry. The eyecatcher: the men ring, the ultimate extension of their personality, due to the story and symbolism behind it.
