A Look Forward to Fall 2018 Jewelry Trends

fall-jewelry-trendsWith Labor Day weekend in the books, we’re looking ahead to the jewelry looks that will be trending this fall, courtesy of the jewelry-savvy bloggers of jckonline.com. Don’t miss out on this year’s must-haves.

Heart shapes

Heart-shaped jewelry is anything but new, but staffers at JCK started seeing hearts—both in heart-cut gemstones and as silhouettes for settings—in the spring of 2017. The trend hasn’t slowed down, but the designs are evolving to suit modern tastes.

Swiss designer Nana Fink is one of many designers who incorporate hearts in their creations, “I love symbols and the heart is of course the strongest one, together with the star.”

Hard stones here to stay

This is another not-new trend that’s showing staying power. Opaque gems such as lapis lazuli, tiger’s eye, and malachite have been on the rise for years. Unlike faceted stones, which tend to be smaller and pricier, hard stones can be used in pieces where designers want to maximize volume. Plus, their opaqueness lends itself well to a more bohemian vibe.

Classic gold chains

It’s not as if the classic gold chain has ever gone out of fashion, but since the price of gold has come down to around $1,200 an ounce, designers are investing in it once again and the look is trending on Instagram. JCK loves chunky chain bracelets and luscious 18-inch solo chain necklaces.

Nostalgic adjustable bracelets

Fashion meets fine jewelry in this trend, where an adjustable fit means no sizing is necessary. Think precious metals and gemstones. It’s a fun, approachable look that tugs at one’s sense of nostalgia, while answering the very grown-up demand for the finer, time-tested luxuries.

Personalized signet rings

The signet ring has become popular with celebrities from Bruno Mars to Gwyneth Paltrow, and jewelry lovers everywhere are catching onto the trend. Rings engraved with signets or small seals trace their roots back thousands of years to the days of noble family crests and heraldic imagery, when wearers pressed them into clay or wax to sign or seal documents. Nowadays, both men and women are sporting signet rings engraved with initials, decorative symbols, and even gems. The look is a perfect way to capitalize on the current popularity of personalized jewelry.

Diamond solitaires never out of style

While engagement ring styles are as varied as the brides who wear them, there are certain designs trending, including rose gold and rose gold accents, rings featuring alternative stones such as morganite and aquamarine, and unconventional styles that don’t look much like the traditional engagement ring at all. Still, with such a wide range of possibilities, the classic round solitaire is a beloved, timeless design that never goes out of style (or wanes in demand, for that matter).

Vintage estate piece

Estate jewelry is becoming ever more popular, as vintage and antique jewelry lovers are always on the search for unique and one-of-a-kind pieces. To find your favorites, be willing to browse estate sales and higher-end pawn stores. Or, enjoy shopping online with ease from the trusted source of estate, vintage and antique jewelry, Adina by Empire Jewelers.

Sexy and Strong: Hot Jewelry Trends for 2018

Jewelry Trends for 2018Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed your holidays and are ready to embrace the new opportunities of 2018! In this first issue of the year, we look at the latest jewelry trends of 2018.

The new year is here, and for jewelry buffs, it’s time to look to the coming year and consider upcoming looks and trends.

Representing women’s strength – If there’s an overarching theme to the 2018 aesthetic, it’s interesting to note that fashion jewelry buyers are gravitating to pieces that reflect a woman’s strength and power—looks with swords, shields, daggers, and royal crest motifs. This look is also certainly influenced by the HBO show and pop culture smash hit, “Game of Thrones.”

Pearls: always in style – Pearls have been cool since Coco Chanel wrapped herself in dozens of luminous ropes. Have they ever gone out of style? Not really, but pearls are back in a big way for 2018.

Playful plastic charm necklaces – Plastic charm necklaces are a trend that’s been brewing for some time. Colorful and playful—think multi-colored teddy bears – they can brighten up your winter wardrobe and inspire smiles.

DIY jewelry – Hand-made quality and fabulously unique, DIY jewelry is still a big look this year. Stripped down, oversized, handmade jewelry that borrows from tribal decorative traditions are especially hot with millennials and Gen Zers.

Chain-drop jewelry – Chain-drop jewelry has become a celebrity staple on the red carpet and no surprise why—it’s a refined, dramatic look that flatters universally. Pieces can vary widely style-wise, from a simple ball on a string look to ornate detailed pieces suitable for a queen.

Cameos: Old World look back in – Cameo jewelry, known for its stylized silhouette profiles of a woman, are decidedly “Old World,” yet back in vogue. Look for unique pieces at estate sales, especially brooches.

The brooch is officially back on the runways and red carpets – and younger consumers love pinning bejeweled brooches to their jean jackets. (A mash up of vintage and ‘80s?)

Enamel and inlay – Jewelry incorporating color and illustration, via enamel and inlay, is having a bona fide moment in the style spotlight. Look for unique hand-made pieces.

Vintage is timeless – While sleek and simple styles have been popular in jewelry for a while, the romance and femininity inherent to vintage and vintage-inspired jewelry—mainly Victorian, Edwardian, and Georgian—represent a pendulum swing back to a more romantic aesthetic. In 2018, look for dainty pieces, bold, geometric necklaces and bracelets, and clean, minimal metal cuffs and earrings. And of course, you can’t forget the fabulous cocktail rings – not one, but several.

Post-back button earrings – This adorable coat button look hasn’t been in vogue in years is suddenly all the rage with younger jewelry lovers. For a great winter look, try and find post-back button earrings that match the buttons on your coat. Too cute!

Mix and match to combine styles – No matter what your jewelry preference, hybrid looks are completely acceptable in 2018. So, have fun setting yourself apart from the crowd by mixing and matching different jewelry pieces.

The best thing about this fashion concept: You don’t have to spend a lot of time, money and energy on shopping—just look in your box of jewels and take the first two contrasting earrings that you think will be fun to wear together.
