2019 will see certain statement pieces make a big comeback, and one of those statement looks is large, chunky chain necklace. Necklaces don’t always have to be delicate, and even the most intricate outfits could benefit from something bold. Whether it be silver, gold or bronze, accessories like this will up the ante on any outfit and create a rebellious aesthetic.
Style up a chunky chain necklace this with a one-colour, print-free roll-neck and trousers for an athleisure vibe, or put a spin on a feminine outfit by pairing the oversized bling with a dress and heels. The choices are endless, and they’ll all look great on you.
For 2019, there is a huge uptake in younger women wanting to collect vintage pieces, and to be adorning their outfits with little vintage touches. Jewellery is by far the best to give off a little hint of vintage styling, especially with pieces that are actually new but look like they have been inspired by history.
This Spring/Summer, it’s a lot of fine jewellry which has been designed to reflect jewellery that was made decades ago. Think vintage vibes with a modern twist.
Online retailer Modern Vintage Style is an ideal one for offering classic pieces with those delicate vintage vibes. They have lots of pretty pendant necklaces which are placed on fine chains, with detailed silver or jewel drops representing styles for the 20’s-60’s.
Little silver teardrop style earrings are all you need in your ears to add to your pretty vintage accessorising. But if you’re more of a necklace girl, you might want to choose a fine lariat style, or a surround pendant drop or even a beautiful jewel feature.
Gemstones dip in and out of ‘fashion’, so to speak, but for 2019, there’s a huge enthusiasts on gem stones which have a little meaning to them.
Moonstone is one of them which is growing in popularity for this year. Revered throughout history, and favourited for being a birthday gemstone for June, it is a crystal that depicts peace, hope and happiness.
Women are incorporating moonstone jewellery into their jewellery boxes in a bid to not only wear the pretty crystal with pride, but to bring in positive energy. Most moonstone jewellery will be made up of the white coloured gem worn as moonstone pendants, earrings or rings.
Modern Vintage Style have an extensive array of jewellery featuring the popular moonstone – and I personally love it worn as a large gemstone on a fine delicate silver bracelet chain.
Layering your rings is still very much a look in spring/summer 2019, but instead of delicate, thin styles, I’m noticing an increase in jumbo, chunky metal rings.
And it doesn’t stop at just wearing one of two chunky rings on different fingers. Chunky rings in either resin, metal or plastic are being piled up, with 2 on each finger in some cases, mixing materials for a bold, clashing look.
It’s edgy and its ‘cool’. This trend works well with plain, understated garments where the jewellery is allowed to do the talking.
Pearls are back, but this season’s are nothing like your grandmother’s pearls. Think of delicate pearl hoops to ear cuffs and sculptural bracelets, where the classic pieces are getting a modern, re-imagined update for spring.
The pearl trend is kinda going towards a modern ‘cool-girl’ feel: Women love pearls, but they’re looking for newer, edgier, less perfect ways to wear them. It all goes back to a look that’s a little more undone but pulled-together.
