Now that the holidays are around the corner, it is a good time to consider your holiday wardrobe. Holiday parties and festivities provide women with a great opportunity during the year to dress up! Of course, this includes accessorizing with real fine jewelry. How does one decide what to wear with the overwhelming number of choices available? Following are four trends that stand out now, and will keep you looking and feeling stylish throughout the 2017 holiday season:
Long drop earrings
You will be sure to get noticed wearing the latest incarnation of the long drop earring or shoulder duster. Featured in many designer collections, these earrings incorporate interesting combinations of semi-precious stones in unexpected color and shape combinations. Some of the most fun and whimsical include another of the season’s hottest trends, carved stone flowers and other motifs. These artful pieces are certain to elicit compliments and start conversations!
Try a new twist on the ring-stacking trend. Creative and non-conformist ladies will have fun curating stacks of rings and piling them up on multiple fingers. To create the most interesting look, mix and match a variety of textures, widths, and stones. This is a great way to repurpose rings collecting in your jewelry box!
A popular trend continuing into the 2017 holiday season is that of geometric jewelry. Designs built upon rectangles, triangles, hexagons and octagons create a sleek aesthetic that is easy to wear and appeals to a broad variety of women. From the delicate geometric wire designs worn by Millennials, to contemporary hexagonal bridal rings, to one-of-a-kind high jewelry creations, geometric jewelry evokes a timeless sense of elegance and sophistication.
Metal tones go through cycles in popularity. This holiday season, yellow gold is the metal of choice. It is classic, evoking an aura of warmth and richness, like the sun. Perfect for relaxing around a glowing fireplace on a chilly holiday evening or piled onto a little black dress for a night out on the town. Yellow gold always looks chic!
Jeweled tones of green will be in abundance this holiday season in apparel, accessories and fine jewelry. For colored gemstone lovers, there are a variety of green stone options from regal grass green emerald to earthy malachite. Green represents harmony and balance. Wear a green gemstone to stay calm and centered during the bustling holiday season!
These are a few of the trends that you will see in fine jewelry during the 2017 holiday season. Whatever your individual style or way of celebrating the season, there are many options in the market to choose from. Most important, in keeping with the festive spirit of the holidays, have fun accessorizing your look with fine jewelry!
