Stock up on these pieces now, because with the many ways this trend can be implemented, it’s safe to bet thatinspirational jewelry will be going strong all year.
Stacked and layered
2013 saw stacking rings take off in a big way, but this spring, every type of jewelry is getting the stacked and layered treatment. Expect to see big armfuls of stacked bangle bracelets, or pendant necklaces combined and layered. Don’t be afraid to mix and match metals, materials, and textures to create many different looks with a rich, eclectic, feel.
Pins and brooches
The statement jewelry trend is showing no signs of slowing down in 2014, and this season, pins and brooches finally get an invite to the party. But these aren’t your grandmother’s brooches — they’re popping up with whimsical motifs and eye-catching gemstones to give any look a dose of exuberance and fun. Our favorite way to wear them? Pin them on a multi-strand necklace for extra statement-making power.
You’ll be able to unleash your free spirit this spring, with whimsical motifs making a strong showing on this season’s must-have pendants, charm bracelets and rings. Birds, bees, butterflies, and dragonflies will be especially trendy, but expect to see everything from arrows and acorns to outlines of states — the key here is finding something that speaks to your own quirks and tastes.
With Radiant Orchid as Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, it’s no surprise that the captivating hue has taken the spring jewelry scene by storm as well. Amethyst, pink sapphire, and pink tourmaline will be your go-to gemstones for incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year into spring ensembles, with feminine styles and silhouettes offering a perfect complement for Radiant Orchid’s romantic feel.
