It’s almost here…finally! We can’t wait for summer. Since the latest spring fashion trends walked down the runway, everyone has been buzzing about the amazing jewelry worn with them.

Here are the top 11 trends that we are predicting this year:
- Oval diamonds
- Yellow gold

- Statement earrings
- Vintage jewelry
- Big chains
- Unisex designs
Jewelry Styles Everyone Will Be Wearing – Summer 2019
Looking forward to this summer’s engagement ring trends, we’re seeing a rise in the demand for oval cut diamonds. More and more brides have been asking for this unusual shape in the last few years, but in 2019 it’s definitely at a peak.
This coming summer will mark the season in which yellow gold officially makes a comeback. The warm hues of gold look great against tanned skin and the rich material really shines in the sun. Celebrities have already started sporting yellow gold statement pieces this spring.
Eye-catching gemstone clusters will be on trend this summer. Fine jewelry designers have extended the inlay technique and applied it to bright gemstones. The result is dynamic color contrasts and interesting size combinations in a smooth, uninterrupted setting. Don’t be surprised to see amethysts, emeralds, sapphires, and rubies next to lapis lazuli, opal and garnets this season.
Plus, building on another of this year’s hot fashions, we expect long, multi-gemstone drop earrings to a big hit as well.
Many designers paired pearl jewelry with high fashion outfits in the runway shows for summer looks. Yet these pieces had bold, modern twists. This year, you’re sure to see a fresh take on pearl jewelry, including large hoop earrings, cool cuff bracelets and multi-layered necklaces.
Earrings Meant to Be Seen
You may not be courageous enough to wear two different earrings or just one oversized earring like the models in the summer 2019 fashion shows. But anyone can enjoy this year’s trend for big, bold earrings. Large hoops, sleek chandelier earrings and fancy should-dusters are making quite the statement in every context. With an abundance of crystals and sparkle, this jewelry is meant to be noticed. It’s another nod to the 80s and 90s that women are rocking today.
Another trend that we’re seeing for the summer of 2019 are unusual earrings. This includes ear cuffs, mismatched pairs, bent circle hoops and ornamental details that go up and over the ear.
Vintage jewelry pieces have never really gone out of style. In 2019, however, it’s becoming especially difficult to discern a real antique from a new piece of jewelry with an old-style feel. Some of the industry’s hottest designers are putting out repurposed, recreated or refreshed vintage necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings.
One of the biggest trends in 2019 is oversized gold chains. This year, heavy necklaces are meant to be worn over summer dresses and linen tops. Big gold links fashioned into necklaces and bracelets have a distinct 80s throwback feel, but are a contemporary way to accessorize.
For Him and For Her
This year unisex jewelry has become even more popular. When it comes to fashion and accessories, conventional lines between masculine and feminine are blurring. For summer 2019, expect to see men and women wearing chunky, monogrammed rings and jewelry with a hard, industrial aesthetic. Chains, metal and leather materials are all representative of this trend.
Everywhere you look this coming season, even if your miles from the shore, there will be seashells. This trend is impossible to deny. Jewelry designers have really taken this rustic favorite to a new level, though. Cockle shells, small conch, cowries and tulip shells are being paired with silver and gold chains. Some are dipped in gold or embellished with non-traditional, semi-precious stones, pearls and crystals. The elevation of seashells has taken this style from beachwear to chic wear. You will see them dangling elegantly from necklaces, bracelets and earrings this summer.
Layers of Jewelry
Another throwback style that is reappearing this year is layering jewelry. Combining necklaces of different lengths and thicknesses can give older pieces a fresh look. Adding bulkier bracelets next to thin bangles or more subtle chains is a fun way to mix it up when you accessorize.
You will surely be seeing more of this semi-precious gem during this summer season. Garnets are beautiful, yet affordable and versatile. The stones that we usually associate with January’s birthstone is deep red or brown, but garnets actually come in a wide range of colors.
For example, spessartine garnets range from light yellow to dark orange. Tsavorite and demantoid garnets are green like emeralds. Rhodolite garnets come in different dark pink hues. Grape garnets keep true to their name with a deep purple color. Pyrope garnets also come in dark violet or red shades. All of these fabulous stones are making waves of their own in the jewelry trends for summer 2019.
