Geometric Jewelry, Layered Looks, Mix And Match Gems
Geometric jewelry is everywhere this season! Key accessories play an important role in Fall 2016 fashions. The Fall 2016 trends in fine jewelry are geometrically inspired designs such as spirals, circles, squares, rectangles, and triangular shapes in rings, pins, earrings, pendants, and bracelets. Jewelry that provides a bright, layered look is also a sure-fire way to liven up outfits in this season’s popular colors. Colors such as rose gold, gold and dark silver are all hugely popular in the Fall season.
A widespread trend for today’s fashionista is the mixing and matching of various styles, colors, metals, and gemstones. And this fall, the pairing of two mismatched earrings is flirting with tradition. The lopsided lobe trend of mismatched ear embellishments such as one moon and one star, or a gold and diamond chandelier swaying on one lobe while the other is adorned by a single gemstone stud is becoming increasingly popular. Ear climbers, and ear cuffs are still hugely popular with millenials. Pulling off any of these trendy looks is simply about having fun and expressing oneself.
Trending necklaces remain to be the subtle and simplistic layering of two or more strands or styles of karat gold or silver. We are seeing lots of delicate necklaces layered with different stones, dainty diamonds, and creative shapes. Crescent moon shapes, hamsa hands, horns, and arrows are being featured on many designs. Geometric charms are also being seen dangling from simple chokers and collars to create a clean chic look. In addition, stackable rings, bangles, and cuffs set with richly colored gems also lend themselves to fashionable layering. Today, many jewelry designers are mixing various gem colors, cuts, carat weights, and shapes to provide many new and exciting combinations that might not normally be seen together. These can add more character and interest than perfectly matched gems.
The top picks in bridal styles range from romance to contemporary this year! From engagement rings to wedding bands we are seeing lots of trends in the jewelry market. Romance is always in style and is seen in many of today’s bridal designs. What’s old is new again this season with elegant, vintage rings and antique diamond cuts both so prevalent. Classic designs are consistently popular and sleek. Contemporary styles with gemstone accents in unexpected colors continue to make an appearance.
Coast Custom Diamond & Sapphire Engagement Ring
Couples today are choosing styles that have a timeless appeal and many of the new designs featuring arcs, curves, twists and swirls are making antique-inspired styles with hand engraving, micro-pave, and filigree details high in demand. British it girl Pippa Middleton recently got engaged with an antique style Deco inspired Asscher cut diamond ring!
While the most popular metals for today’s bridal jewelry is white gold and platinum, two-toned gold combinations are a fashion forward alternative. Rose gold engagement rings are also becoming exceedingly popular with brides-to-be. Today’s grooms seem to be paying particular attention to interesting, lightweight and durable contemporary metals such as titanium or cobalt.
Not surprisingly, the round brilliant cut diamond is still the most popular shape for engagement rings, but emerald, cushion, and radiant cuts are becoming more popular by celebrities such as Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Aniston. Comfortable, simplistic wedding bands for gents remain favorites, while more ornate bands set with pave diamonds, diamond baguette eternity bands, hand engraved bands or fine milgrain edges are popular with the ladies.
