I hope you’re ready because the end of 2019 jewelry trends is especially in-your-face. If you paid close attention to the runways, you might have noticed that they were filled with necklaces and bracelets piled and stacked on top of each other. Earrings were just as daring, with chunky, oversized hoops and long, dangling styles that dropped below the shoulders. Ahead, a cheat sheet to the biggest jewelry trends. Scroll on for everything you need to know (and to shop our picks).
There’s nothing new about chain-link necklaces — LL Cool J has rocked him since the ’80s. But what does feel refreshing are the exaggerated shapes and glam finishes seen on the spring 2019 runways of Hermes, Monse, Marni, and Off-White
Sunny or not, this beachy trend is already popping up everywhere. Anna Sui’s version included colorful shells connected with gold accents and beads, Oscar de la Renta jazzed up chains with coral reef pendants, and Missoni put a twist on delicate hoops with mismatched seashells.
Here’s the choker’s grown-up, sophisticated cousin. Fendi’s take on the trend was colorful, with blue, green, and orange-colored enamel. Dior sent models down the runway with the brand’s name front-and-center.
Coin necklaces have been trending for a few seasons now. But in 2019 the trend is bigger than ever, with piled on pieces like we’ve never seen before. Some styles featured the charms throughout a single-chain necklace, like at Oscar de la Renta (pictured above), while others layered up with piles of coin chains wrapped around models’ necks, as seen at Paco Rabanne.
Traditional hoops dominate season after season. But it’s time to take it up a notch with thick, half-moon designs. Valentino’s models showed us exactly how it’s down with gold statement-makers. And at Ulla Johnson’s runway show, the open-hoop earrings were turned on their sides like moon crescents.
Nope, the logo trend isn’t over. And it’s really just getting started in the jewelry department. Expect to see more logo jewels because Dior and Balenciaga are also on board.
