From fashion to fine jewelry, you can expect to see new styles hitting the shelves and the streets as we plunge into 2021. Want to stay ahead of the curve? We asked our jewelry experts which trends we can expect to see as we enter the new year.
Showcase your unique style and embrace stackable rings. From wedding bands to right-hand rings, stackable rings come in a variety of styles, colors and sizes. As a rule of thumb, style rings of the same metal but play around with texture and width. Alternatively, choose a gemstone and mix and match metals for a creative and fashionable look.
When it comes to how many rings you can stack how bold or conservative you choose to go is up to you. But if you still want functioning use of your finger we recommend keeping your stack beneath the knuckle for a stylish yet comfortable look.
While buying a new ring is always exciting, the stacking trend is great because it allows you to play around with what’s already in your jewelry box. Bust out those pieces that you haven’t worn for a while and see what kind of new looks you can come up with.
Romantic scrollwork, symmetrical designs and fancy diamond shapes, vintage pieces offer a nod to eras past. Like most trends in the fashion industry, with time, everything comes back in style and vintage jewelry is no different. However, that doesn’t mean that these styles are dated, in fact, they’re more coveted than ever.
Romantic rose gold gives off vintage vibes and this pinkish metal has been rising in popularity in the engagement ring sector for years now. To commit to the look opt for a wedding band that features fancy filigree, a design element that dates back to the Edwardian era and still charms to this day. If you’re the type of person who likes to add a pop of color to your look shop vintage rings and jewelry that feature colorful gemstones of the time such as bright turquoise, rich amethyst, dazzling opals and bold blue sapphire.
When it comes to choosing a center stone, no diamond shape screams vintage more than the emerald cut. Reminiscent of art deco design, the emerald cut’s sharp lines and symmetrical step cuts will transport you back to the days of a 1920s speakeasy.
Gender Neutral Styles
As more brands begin to debut gender neutral engagement rings and wedding bands you can expect to see some fine jewelry pieces blurring the lines between traditionally masculine and feminine styles in 2021. Gender neutral rings are for anyone and everyone and often feature design elements like mixed metals, colorful stones and fancy rivets and facets.
There’s a reason that these styles have stood the test of time. Choose these timeless designs for a fashion game that’s always on point.
When it comes to wedding rings, minimalistic pieces are predicted to be all the rage for the new year. Think simplistic solitaire engagement rings and romantic three-stone settings. Or, if you’re looking to buy a ring but aren’t planning a wedding consider a right-hand ring. All the rage right now, right-hand rings present the perfect opportunity to accessorize as bold or as dainty as you’d like. Try pairing the stone of your choice with an accented band for a statement piece that will be in style.
As for timeless fine jewelry, there are a number of directions that you can go with your selections. If you prefer necklaces opt for a classic pendant that will be your go-to piece when pulling an outfit together. If earrings are more your style, you can’t go wrong with a pair of diamond studs or, for something a little more fun, a pair of huggies. As for bracelets, tennis bracelets are an elegant choice that will instantly jazz up any look with a touch of sparkle.
