2018 Jewelry Trends: Bigger, Bolder, Bling

Posted on January 24, 2018 by Melissa Kapur | 0 Comments

The results are in, and more is very much more!

Jewelry journalists (yep, that’s a thing) are noticing a blinding barrage of bling everywhere. Layered pendants. Chandelier earrings. Multiple cuffs. The hippest of the hip are bringing it (all) on in surprising and exciting ways.

Not quite ready to add a foot-long, feathered single earring? Most of us aren’t. Actually, the styles you see on the runway are rarely meant to be emulated on the street.  Could you imagine the stares you'd elicit on your next Target run?

They do, however, give us some good starting points. Now is a great time to update your earring wardrobe with something big and bold. Something like our Downton Dewdrop or Bubbly, for example...

Check this examination of jewelry trends from the stylish folks at Harper’s Bazaar and let us know: how would you translate runway to reality?

Autumn- simplified!

It’s a gorgeous time of year, isn’t it? All the trees are really bringing out their fanciest frocks and everything everywhere smells like cinnamon. There’s a nice chill to the air and it still feels crisp, clean, and new.

Those lovely trees dropping their unnecessary accoutrements serves as a reminder that this is the perfect time to pull a Marie Kondo and drop the unnecessary in your own life. We recently stumbled across this article in WhoWhatWear about the joys of a capsule wardrobe and could not agree more. Paring down one’s closet is a true joy because really, we only wear the same few pieces over and over again. We all have that one perfect sweater that makes us feel beautiful; why not wear that more often? Just add or subtract some sparkle and you’re good to go.

That’s where we come in. Melissa Dew crafts exquisite jewelry with real gemstones at price points everyone can afford. Classic, well-made jewelry is always in style, and always appropriate- whether you’re headed to the grocery store or the theater.  It’s a great way to change up your favorite pieces so you can always be effortlessly accessorized and feel fabulous. Plus, it takes up very little closet space!

Wondering how to work jewelry into your capsule collection? Call or email with descriptions of your favorite wardrobe staples and we’ll help find the perfect pieces to pull your outfit together.

Wherever fall takes you this year, you deserve a little sparkle—today and every day.
