Top 3 Rising Jewelry Trends

The jewelry world loves to show off new trends just like the fashion world does. These trends can come and go. Some are longer lasting than others. Add a tungsten ring, a cameo necklace, or a leaf brooch and you will be charmed. 

Here are three rising jewelry trends that should be around for awhile: 

Tungsten Jewelry 
Gold and silver are still popular when it comes to jewelry pieces. But, those with a modern sense are looking for something a bit different. Tungsten jewelry is one trend that shows no signs of disappearing. This metal offers a harder finish than either gold or silver. Plus, it is hypoallergenic so people who are sensitive to gold or silver can wear this metal without any problems. The metal resists scratching and looks great in a brushed finish. Because of its quality of strength and the simple less-ornate designs that usually surround it, many men are choosing a tungsten ring over gold or silver for a wedding band. Women are following suit for some of the same reasons but also because tungsten rings can offset colored gems wonderfully.

Vintage Inspired Pieces 
With so many styles changing and taking on a modern twist, vintage-inspired pieces are becoming popular in reaction. Cameos are one trend that shows no sign of stopping. They are showing up in necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. Facial profiles are the most popular, but the outline of natural items are also beginning to show up. Ornate filigree work is another vintage decoration showing up on pieces of all sorts. Many pieces showing up show style elements of the early twentieth century. 

Nature Jewelry 
Textures and shapes from nature are starting to dominate some jewelry lines. You can find leaves and flowers in many pieces ranging from tulip gemstone holders on rings to leaf shaped brooches. With so many shapes available from the natural world, options are just about endless for inspiration. Another nature-inspired trend is in its textures and colors. Leopard spots and zebra stripes are just two of the textures showing up around the world, but natural stone or wood patterns are beautiful. They're becoming popular as designers get better at working them into their creations.

As each season passes new trends begin to show. These three trends though will be with us for the next few seasons in many shapes and forms. You should add some pieces to your collection to stay ahead of the other jewelry lovers in your life – and inspire them.
