Trends: Stack-able Jewelry & Mixed Metals
Jewelry trends are always changing and evolving, and we are going to be talking about the most popular trending jewelry in 2017/2018. A style that is really trendy right now is wearing smaller, more dainty pieces of jewelry, but stacking many pieces together for a more full look. You may see people wearing several small rings on one finger, many thin bracelets on one arm, and even several dainty necklaces to create a layered look. By layering lightweight jewelry together, it creates a full look without the heaviness of a large statement piece. It also lets you create a variety of different looks and styles by layering different pieces together.
Stacking rings are IN- Mix up metals and styles, as long as each ring is dainty enough to be paired with other rings. We mixed up these gold and rose gold rings to make a whole new look.
The great thing about stacking jewelry is that you can mix up the metals or mix different stones together, and it's like you're creating your own piece of art.
Bangle cuffs are always a wonderful addition to your wardrobe, and stacking them up can really add a statement!
Bangle cuffs look GREAT stacked up, especially if each one has a different accent or stone set in it. We stacked 4 beach glass bangles together, each one with a different color of glass. We liked pairing lime green, cobalt blue, periwinkle purple, and aqua blue. Each band has slight variations in finish and texture, but they all go together seamlessly.
Even stacking 2 bracelets together can make a bold statement.
Bangle cuffs aren't the only type of bracelet that looks great all stacked up. We also love the way Paris Bracelets look all mixed up. Paris bracelets are made from a stretchy fabric, and each one has a different base color and pattern of swarovski crystals and other accent stones.
Black is one of the favorites, but they also have shades of grey, beige, chestnut, and pink!
Is it possible to have TOO many bracelets? We don't think so.
We also love beaded bracelets! We found this really great company called Sashka |Co. Their glass beaded bracelets are handcrafted with love by artisans in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. They make a stylish bracelet that is very affordable, and looks amazing all stacked up! They have every color you could wish for, many different patterns to choose from, and some even have metal accents. We mixed up some of our favorite colors to show the wide variety of styles you can achieve.
When choosing bracelets to stack together, here's a tip: Try to pick a variety of colors and patterns, so it isn't too bland or too bright! Here's a general formula:
1) One BOLD color
2) One that has a busy PATTERN
3) One NEUTRAL color
optional: 4) One to tie all the other bracelets together (ie... a secondary solid color, or a light pattern with colors that compliment the other bracelets)
Stacking bracelets is all about letting your style come through, so be creative and don't be afraid to go BOLD!
We just can't get enough of these BEAUTIFUL fair trade roll-on bracelets. Each bracelet is carefully handmade bead by bead, and over 70% of their profits go back to Nepal. These bracelets are carefully crafted to roll over your hand, but they do come in a 7 inch "medium" size, and an 8 inch "large" size.
Have you ever seen a ring that has moving parts? One of the most popular styles of rings that we have seen this year are SPINNER rings. A growing trend is to MIX different metals together! Now, it's becoming popular to mix silver and copper, or gold and silver, or copper and brass! Who said you can't have the best of both worlds?
We have MANY different styles of TRENDING spinner rings, but here are a few of our favorites. Every spinner ring has a sterling silver base, with each ring having different accents of copper, brass, and sterling silver. Some rings have a dark patina, some feature gemstones, and some have a variety of textures within them.
These rings are both STYLISH & FUN!
And lastly, here is a beautiful wire wrapped bracelet with silver and copper intertwined! We love this look...
