You're not required to follow any of these ideas, of course, but we thought it would be nice to give you a look at what's coming up.
Jewelry Trends for 2014
Here's a look at some specific trends in jewelry that we're going to see this year, including types of gemstones used in the jewelry as well as designs used. We hope you enjoy the list and can add your own thoughts when you're done reading.
Emeralds - If you've watched any of the awards shows this year, you know that a lot of emeralds were spotted in the red carpet. This typically green gemstone has become super hot with the rich and famous as well as a lot of normal women.
Snakes - This may be due to the fact that the Chinese calendar is in the year of the snake, but whatever the reason there's going to be a lot of snake themed jewelry this year. Don't worry, most of the designs are NOT too scary. Well, most of them.
Hair Jewelry - While rings, necklaces and bracelets are always going to be in style - along with earrings - there's a growing trend of women wearing jewelry in their hair. Expect to see a lot of designs made just for this part of the body, some bigger than others.
Smaller - Some may call this design style "delicate," but some jewelry is getting smaller - especially earrings made out of gold. This could have something to do with the skyrocketing gold prices currently, but it's a trend that should continue most of the year.
Amber - This may also have something to do with rising prices of other gemstones and precious metals, but amber seems to be making a big comeback in a lot of jewelry collections for 2014.
Exotic - Another trend that's shaping up to be big in 2014 is strange and exotic jewelry. Some of the designs seen are really out there this year, but this is something that a lot of women (and men) actually like - standing out and looking different than everyone else.
Looking at the list above, you're probably thinking about your own jewelry collection and what changes you might have to make to stay in style this year. If you have any of your own thoughts about jewelry trends that you've noticed so far in 2014, be sure to leave us a comment and let us know your thoughts.
