While beautiful jewelry never goes out of style, four new jewelry design trends are gaining popularity as we head into the holiday season. According to the Holiday Trend Report issued by the Natural Diamond Council, the four styles to keep an eye on include bold colors, precious and personal pieces, statement earrings, and organic and earthy commitment rings.
It's easy to see how and why these trends began to emerge in 2020. This year, jewelry has been less about bold, dramatic design, and more a reflection of personal styles. As we've shifted away from big events and international travel, we're not seeing the dramatic red carpet styles that have been as popular in years past. Instead, everyday jewelry that makes a more personal statement is in demand, making this year's trendiest pieces perfect for gift-giving over the holidays. Whether you're shopping for a loved one, or picking out something special for yourself, we’d love to help you find or create the perfect piece to suit your style this holiday season.
Colorful Jewelry to Wear Everyday
They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but colored gemstones might be second best. We're seeing all sorts of new styles that mix colorful gems with bright, beautiful diamonds in settings that combine gold, silver, and even enamel for an unexpected look that is playful and contemporary.
Whether you're shopping for birthstone jewelry, or need a custom piece designed to match your unique style, we have a wide selection of colorful pieces to choose from and price points to match every budget. Please stop by our Leawood, KS showroom to see our selection!
Express Your Style with Personalized Jewelry
There's so much more to personalized jewelry than charm bracelets and signet rings. While we've certainly seen (and sold) more than a few of each, the trend toward more individualized and unique jewelry styles has inspired a new generation of designers who create truly one-of-a-kind pieces.
Mazzarese is proud to feature designers like Heather B. Moore who create memorable stories reflected in very personalized, handmade jewelry. "Telling a story is not a trend," says Heather. "It's a keepsake, an heirloom. It's one-of-a-kind, just like the person wearing it." Her specialty, and the key ingredient to her success as a designer, is the ability to infuse each piece with a unique personality to match the wearer. The Heather B. Moore collection allows you to hold onto a moment forever, create that memory, so it is tangible in the form of a ring, bracelet, necklace or earring. Having a piece of jewelry that you can pass along for generations isn't a trend, it is truly a gift.
Make a Statement with Statement Earrings
There was a time when costume jewelry was your best bet when it came to bold accessories, but these days, even the most traditional fine jewelry designers are making a statement with larger styles, more detailed designs, and bold color choices.
Ear cuffs, large chandelier earrings, and larger diamond designs are trending this year, and we're seeing them paired with all sorts of fashion choices. Designer couture gowns can't compete with the cable knit sweaters and darker indigo denims that have become popular in 2020, and consumers are dressing up these new fashion choices with bolder, bigger earrings. This winter, you can’t go wrong with some statement earrings for every holiday event … even if they're hosted on Zoom!
A New Take on Commitment Rings
Traditionally, commitment rings and promise rings are smaller and more subtle than most engagement rings. They may have a little sparkle but are by no means showstoppers style-wise. More recently, however, commitment rings have become true statement pieces with larger diamonds in unusual shapes. We're seeing more earth-toned and rough-cut diamonds paired with varying shades of gold for a less sparkly, more understated look. Let us help you create a custom piece for a loved one using unique stones and settings for a truly personalized, meaningful gift that will last a lifetime.
