Boldly Colored Beads

Add some oomph to your outfit with a colorful beaded bracelet, necklace or pair of earrings. Playful pops of color are on-trend this year and perfect for the spring and summer seasons. This trend is all about standing out and jewelry is a great way to introduce color into your wardrobe. 

Lovely Links

Chain link accessories were all over the spring runways again this year. From long gold chains to chunky silver chokers, chain links are the must-have accessory this season. For 2021, jewelry designers have adapted this popular runway look into more wearable pieces that include bracelets, rings, and earrings.

This on-trend accessory is versatile enough to be worn on its own or layered with other pieces. For a dramatic style juxtaposition, try layering a chunky chain link necklace or bracelet with a dainty set of pearls. 

Ladylike Looks

Prim and proper accessories were an unexpected standout on the 2021 runways. Anything but old-fashioned, these ladylike looks go beyond your typical diamond studs and strands of pearls — watch for pretty florals, embellished necklaces and bracelets, and button earrings.

Powerful Pearls

One tried and true trend that’s staying put this season is pearl jewelry. Always feminine and effortlessly classic, pearls have been popular for decades, gracing the necks, ears and wrists of fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy. Today, pearls make a powerful fashion statement and are a favorite among influential women like Kamala Harris, Queen Elizabeth and Michelle Obama.

For a fresh, modern take on the traditional pearl, embrace irregular shapes and varying colors as well as mixing different size pearls. Try layering pearl necklaces and bracelets to create a chunkier and more interesting statement piece.

Spherical Shapes

Sculptural jewelry has a way of reading both playful and refined. Bulbous orbs, in particular, are a hot trend for 2021, in addition to being a treat for the eye.

Dreamy Diamonds

Maybe it’s because of the popularity of period dramas like The Crown and Bridgerton, but diamond jewelry is projected to be big for spring and summer 2021. Whether they are dainty or dramatic, diamonds add a whole lot of shimmer to an outfit. Tip-toe your way into the trend with a delicate diamond bracelet, or go all-in with a pair of sparkly diamond hoop earrings.

Heavy Metal

While daintier jewelry pieces remain popular, the runways were flooded with oversized statement jewelry this year. From chunky cuffs to thick tube hoops, prominent jewelry designers prove that bigger is better in 2021.

Sophisticated Stacking

Whether it’s using earrings, bracelets, necklaces or rings, layering and stacking is as on-trend as ever this year. The warm weather that accompanies the spring and summer seasons is especially perfect for showing off necklace layers and bracelet stacks.

When layering necklaces, look for dainty pendants and chains in varying lengths. Stacking rings and bracelets is all about playing with materials, colors and textures. Lagos bracelets are made to mix and match and perfect for stacking. Remember, when it comes to layering and stacking, the more the merrier!
