Spring Jewelry Trends 2017

So many fun trends from last year like chokers, cuffs, tassels and wrap bracelets  have carried over to spring fashion this year and that’s good because we love them all! See our blog post, Fall Jewelry Trends 2016 to take a look at these. But, there are some exciting new trends as well.

 

One popular new trend is geode jewelry! This jewelry is one of the most widely seen trends this spring. Geodes are showing up on necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Elle shows large slices of geodes hanging from chunky chains; however, the geode trend ranges from smaller and delicate pieces like those in the Coco + Carmen’s Geode-Weave collection to big, bold and statement making geodes seen on the runways. Along the same lines, mineral and gemstone jewelry are also popular this season.
 

Below, left to right: Coco + Carmen geode necklaces and earrings, Anju fringe necklace, Accent Accessories tassel necklaces, and Bellaryann wraps and charm bracelets. Take a look at our Pinterest board to see more.
