We love you, mom! Custom stamped charms are sure to be a big hit again this year but most mamas have one of those already, right? Fashionistas will be looking for new, trendy accessories to layer on with the stamped charm necklaces already in their jewelry boxes. These are our predictions for the latest Mother’s Day jewelry baubles that will be big sellers.
Love Your Curves – The trapeze bar trend is metamorphosing as it matures. The latest variations feature curved bars or tubes as focal elements. More complex designs include multiple links in scalloped formations that are ideal for bib necklace concepts.
Chokers – Collarbone hugging circlets in 14 and 16 inch lengths are gaining traction as this trend grows. Add a tiny focal link right at the throat for a sweet, unassuming look. Or choose omega chains and wire collars as striking frames for pendants and embellishments.
Clean lines– The smooth silhouettes of wire shapes are all the rage these days as negative space takes center stage in accessories. Structured outlines of geometric forms range from angular triangles and rectangles to curvaceous teardrops and ovals.
Bead it up – Yes, beads are back, but in moderation. Minimal beaded bar focal links or interspersed rounds add visual interest without overwhelming the simplicity of the trending aesthetic. Saturn chain plays nicely with this trend as do smaller, monochromatic beads such as Swarovski crystals.
