Think back to 2010 and you may recall that anyone who was anyone was wearing gigantic statement necklaces (the kind that doubled up as handy bejewelled bibs). I’ve used that reference to debunk the myth that jewellery doesn’t move in trend cycles—you probably wouldn’t reach for a statement necklace today over all other options, would you?
Many consider jewellery to be too classic to change with the years or seasons, but I would argue the opposite: Certain jewellery styles can be very indicative of time. Okay, a simple pair of gold hoops or a cute charm bracelet will always stand up as a solid accessorising choice, but what about the pieces that update and make a look rather than quietly sit within it?
From the necklace that has summer 2019 written all over it (but also happens to be versatile enough to carry on for many summers to come) to the trending detail we’ve seen bubbling up on Instagram, these are the top jewellery trends of the year. Showcased by the style set and featuring the top shopping picks for every budget, these little add-ons can make a significant difference in your outfit building process.
