The Most Exciting Spring 2019 Jewelry Trends
If you’re designing a new collection, you gotta know about the Spring 2019 jewelry trends!
The overarching trend is the 80’s are back in full force, m’dear! It’s true, fashion is cyclical.
I’m so glad because this means I totally was on trend with my purple sparkle suit (shoulder pads included) at our live event.
But I wanted to get the trends from those with a pulse on the industry, so sat down with some fashion friends to chat about their take on the Spring 2019.
Angela Koh is a market editor for T: The New York Times Style Magazine, who’s bringing us the scoop on the trends from New York fashion week.
Plus, I talked with the dear Delia Folk from The Style That Binds Us podcast about her fashion month experience visiting fashion weeks in Paris, London, Milan, and NYC – of course.
One thing Delia noticed was the cohesiveness of trends across cities.
The trends are happening across the world – each city following similar trends.
1.Everything's a Statement
Big necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and even ear cuffs are a huge jewelry trend for Spring 2019! Make them as big as you’d like, because Spring is all about making statements this year.
2. Mismatched Earrings
Button earrings are in, so you could do different colors or styles of buttons to be mismatched, but still a pair! Otherwise, you can design one statement earring and one subtle earring to capture this trend in your jewelry line.
3. Leafs, Shells & Feathers
Anything with a nod to nature is totally in for Spring 2019. There’s still a strong boho, wanderlust vibe carrying into 2019 so the handmade, imperfect look is still very much on trend.
4. Hoops, baby, Hoops!
All kinds of hoops are trending for jewelry in the Spring. Get creative with your hoops, add some pearls, use different shapes, even front facing hoops are totally on trend.
5. Resurrection of the Choker
It's back, and more glamorous than ever! If you’re designing a choker for the Spring, include pearls, diamonds, or anything to dress it up – a lot!
6. Coins, Medallions, & Link Chains
Metals are in for Spring, but not always as you’d expect. Chain linked jewelry is so hot right now. From large link bracelets to the typical gold chains from the 80’s, it’s everywhere for Spring! Add in some coins or medallions for extra flair.
7. Brand Names & Logos
What a better way to get brand exposure than including your name on everything your customer wears? This is a huge jewelry trend for the Spring of 2019 – plus it’s not a bad way to boost your word of mouth marketing.
8. Cuffs, Cuffs, Cuffs
Arm cuffs, ear cuffs, and cuff bracelets are all on trend for the Spring! The bigger, the better.
9. Jewelry from Head to Toe
Yes, anklets and toe rings are making a comeback this Spring!
Fashion and jewelry trends are heavily influenced by what’s happening in our society.
For example, the Burberry trench coat was invented during WWII when there were lots of protests. So it makes sense that it’s showing up on the runway again because of all the protests happening in our culture right now.
With how we’re seeing women stand up for themselves, it’s not surprising women’s suiting is in again. This gives a nod to the 80’s when women really started entering the office workforce.
We’re seeing all these trends come back onto the runway because of social influences one way or another.
What trends are you most excited about? For me, it’s the cuffs and chokers.
