If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I am a die hard jewelry lover. Working in a corporate environment and having limitations on ones style & self-expression when it comes to fashion can be tough. I love that jewelry can be used to take an outfit (in my case a boring black suit haha) and make it more stylish.
Now that 2017 is well upon us, I wanted to round up the top 5 trends for jewelry for this year. Let’s get to it!
1. Geometric Jewelry
One trend that is popular across all jewelry pieces this year (rings, necklaces, earrings) is geometric shapes. The runways were filled with designers from Stella McCartney to Kate Spade showcasing geometric items. Below are some of my current favorites.
2. Victorian Inspired
The victorian era inspired so many designers collections at fashion week this year, and jewelry is no exception to the victorian-themed obsession. Think lace, filigree design & pearls. Below are my favorites.
3. Matching Bracelets
I personally found this to be the most unexpected trend of in jewelry this year; and I love it. The trend, in case the title isn’t clear, is essentially wearing two of the same bracelet- one on each wrist. We’ve seen this trend in years past with large cuff bracelets, but this year it’s popular not only in cuffs but in dainty bracelets as well. Below are my favorites that would like great worn as a ‘set’.
4. Functional Jewelry
It’s no surprise that in our busy, multi-tasking culture that women are turning to jewelry that does more than just sit and look pretty. The most interesting jewelry trend of 2017, in my opinion, is the emergence of ‘functional’ jewelry. For example, Maria Shireen has beautiful looking bracelets that are actually hair elastic holders. This way you can have a hair tie on your wrist without it digging into you, and while adding a piece of beautiful jewelry. Other functional jewelry that is popular this year are watches (they are making a comeback!) & fitbit bracelets.
5. 80's Earrings
Fashion cycles through decades all the time. I have loved a lot of the 90s fashion that has been back on trend this year. For 2017 though, we're bringing it back another decade - at least as far as earrings are concerned. The trend in earrings this year is full on 80s - bright colors, big hoops & clip-ons will all be popular. Shop some great 80s style earrings below.

I, for one, cannot let go of brooches. I will definitely still be wearing them on my blazers and jackets this year!
