When you stop to think about jewelry trends, it’s possible that meaningful, personal items come to mind. That’s not at all surprising, as personalized jewelry has been a favorite with humans since ancient times – even prehistoric cave dwellers created significant pieces for themselves using beautiful materials such as feathers, polished bones, stones, and intriguing bits of wood. Today, personalized jewelry has come a long way. Let’s take a look at some of the most recent trends.
Remember the Carrie name necklace from HBO’s Sex and the City? Like Sarah Jessica Parker’s famous character Carrie Bradshaw said when she famously lost it, “It costs, like, nothing!” yet it is a heartfelt statement piece that goes with everything. The trend first caught on in the 1980s, then saw a resurgence in 1998. Since then, the scripted name necklace has been popular with people from all walks of life. Whether you choose a plain script necklace or one with a sparkly birthstone, you’ll enjoy it’s classic look and its ability to complement a variety of your favorite outfits.
Monograms have been around forever, so how is it possible that they make it onto a list if jewelry trends? As it turns out, celebrities like Taylor Swift, Kendra Wilkinson, and Carrie Underwood began sporting monograms around 2012, and the simple yet stylish look has been popular ever since. You can take advantage of this stylish look by rocking your own initials, creating a special monogram that signifies your family ties, or wearing a monogram necklace that includes the initials of some of your closest friends.
This trend is a fairly new one, popping up over the last year or so, and catching on very quickly. The infinity symbol, which signifies “forever” is intertwined with your name or the name of someone special. A child’s name, a spouse’s name, or even a friend’s name adds both beauty and significance to this ultra-stylish piece. Adding a birthstone brings a bit of sparkle, and it personalizes infinity name necklaces even more. Like other stylish necklaces, the infinity name necklace offers go-with-everything appeal.
Name jewelry is always in demand – rings, bracelets, and of course necklaces are popular with people of all ages. Meaningful and personal, these items are wonderfully unique. Even better, they offer plenty of wearability, pairing well with all of your favorite outfits.
Family jewelry such as family tree lockets is on trend too, and mother rings with birthstones signifying the birth month of each child make wonderful additions to any mother or grandmother’s jewelry wardrobe.
Everyone appreciates a thoughtful gift! Whether you’re looking for something special for yourself, a friend, or a loved one, it’s quite likely that an on-trend piece of jewelry is certain to make a splash.
