Spring Jewelry Trends 2021
With 2021 firmly underway and the spring season just around the corner, it’s time to take a look at some of the latest jewelry trends that are setting the world alight.
Spring will place more of a focus on lighter pieces, as we move away from the darker and moodier tones of winter. Since we are following on from 2020 - a year that was terrible for pretty much everyone worldwide, there will be even more movement than usual towards light and celebratory pieces of jewelry.
Pearl necklaces and other pearl accessories are making a strong reappearance in 2021. However, these are usually a far cry from the perfectly formed and fragile pearl necklaces you might imagine the likes of Lisa Simpson wearing.
The pearl accessories trending for spring 2021 are more of a statement piece characterized by their pearls of mismatched shapes and sizes. They also tend to be larger than pearl necklaces of the past.
A smooth finish is not the only way to present precious jewelry. An uneven and imperfect texture created by hammering metals such as gold can make for the perfect presentation. This is nothing new for 2021 - it has been done for years - but it is now being seen in many lines for this spring.
The texture of hammered jewelry gives off a much more natural feel. They look as if they could have been taken straight from the earth and placed on the model. Acme Studios produced a great example of oversized, hammered copper as seen below:
This oversized earring is similar to many trending pieces in spring 2021. It is characterized and draws attention because of its imperfect look and lack of a smooth finish. This is absolutely a piece you want if you are searching for a statement jewelry trend for 2021.
Think Mardi Gras beads, but a little toned down. Color is important, and rainbow necklaces like the one below is in:
Much smaller colored necklaces are also trending upwards for spring and summer 2021. Everyone needs a splash of color in their lives after the testing times we have had lately!
Note the pearls and shells attached to the colored necklace above. These are great additions to help any piece of jewelry stand out from the crowd. Of course, the presence of shells points to the proximity of summer and kick-starts a chilled-out beach vibe!
