What’s Trending in Jewelry for 2020?

New year, new jewelry.

That's how the saying goes, right?

Jewelry trends for 2020 are bold, bright, and customizable to fit your style.

Whether you love to experiment with oversized, adventurous jewelry or you prefer to keep it classic and delicate, this is the perfect time to try something different.

This year, eye-catching styles like chain-link necklaces and chunky rings are trending. Designers are incorporating fun colors and sharp geometric shapes into classic designs, bringing an update to an already timeless allure, like this Andrea Candela pendant.

If these trends are any indication of this decade’s jewelry, it’s clear that we’re looking at bold and experimental jewelry pieces that are as wearable as they are stylish.

Statement Jewelry to Start the Year Off Right

True to its name, statement jewelry —quite literally — makes a statement.

Statement jewelry pulls together any outfit and showcases the unique personality of the person wearing it.

In recent years statement necklaces have been a trend. But this year, statement rings, earrings, and bracelets are rising in popularity too.

Statement jewelry is bold and this year, chain links and mixed metals are trending.

Chain-Link Jewelry is Back

Links were first in style in the 1980s and 1990s.

And much like other pieces of fashion from those decades, these pieces are coming back in full force.

The accessory has been in style for the past few seasons in the form of dainty designs that have a barely-there look.

Chain-link jewelry is still trending this year but with a completely revamped look. These links are edgy, chunky, and look more like hardware than the delicate accessories we’ve seen.

Current maximalist versions of chain link accessories are versatile. You can wear them on their own, or layer chain-link necklaces on top of each other.

The trending jewelry can elevate simple outfits with their boldness.

Mixed Metals Are in This Year

Mixing gold and silver has always been frowned upon in the fashion industry.

It was an unspoken rule that you can wear gold or silver but never both at the same time.

Now, mixed metals are a growing trend on the runways and in jewelry stores.

This is a modern take on a classic rule, and designers have been creating beautiful mixed metal pieces, full of personality.

If you’ve been careful to only wear one or the other at a time, imagine the possibility of making a statement by wearing together. Instead of being a fashion faux pas, it is now encouraged to run with the trend and mix metals.

This trend can be styled in a variety of ways, from stackable rings to two-tone earrings.

Engagement Ring Trends for 2020

Although engagement rings are a classic piece of jewelry, designers are constantly creating new and different shapes, cuts, and styles of engagement rings.

A few of the engagement ring trends in 2020 are elongated diamond shapes, stacked rings, and halo settings.

Elongated diamond shapes like oval, emerald, cushion, and pear have become immensely popular in the last few years.

Wearing stacked engagement rings and wedding bands has become a new way to revamp the classic look of an engagement ring.

Stacked rings can showcase the personal style of the individual and can be completely customizable, based on the shapes and diamonds in each ring.

Halo designs will continue to rise in popularity in 2020 because of their classic and elegant feel. Halo settings add even more sparkle to a center diamond, making it look more brilliant and larger than traditional engagement rings.

To give this an even more trendy and unique look, incorporate colored gemstones to the band.
