It is common knowledge in Europe that when the economy is rising the skirts of the ladies get shorter. And the other way round. According to the catwalks and the jewelry that is presented there, our economy goes bankrupt. You might wonder ‘why the size of the pieces of jewelry grows?’ The necklaces are huge and the earrings larger than ever.

From minimalistic style to something EXTRA

In the last few years, it was about all small necklaces in layers. And the minimalistic look was very popular. According to the common knowledge in Europe, you can say that the economy was going great. And actually, the economy is doing great (here in Europe). But do the jewelry makers and the trend-watchers have a crystal ball?

Do they think that the trade war between the USA and China runs out of hand? Well, they must have some secret knowledge or are very well informed about the highest economic and political places. Since the pieces of jewelry are growing. And now it is big, bigger, and biggest.

And some EXTRA shiny gemstones

It can also a reaction to the minimalistic look and the designers want to have a completely different look. In spring you can have a lot of fun with your jewelry. Quite a few somewhat cheaper pieces of jewelry will be made of crystals and Swarovski beads and the more sophisticated jewelry is designed with rhinestone quartz and diamonds.

But the result of both versions will be ‘bling-bling’. And that will look especially great in the sunshine or in the evening because the sunbeams and the light will shine beautifully on the crystals. And that will get better when they are faceted (rhinestone quartz and diamonds). Ladies, you will be seen!!!

It started with a video clip (7 rings) of Ariana Grande. In that clip she wore over the top, large earrings made of crystals. In that video, she is wearing a lot of crystal and rhinestone pieces of jewelry and her popularity made this style adopted by other designers.

Add seashells and hearts, but keep it BIG

Another material that will be popular is the seashells, pearls and all the shapes you will find in the sea. And the hearts from the 1980s will return in the newest pieces of jewelry. But the trend will be BIG, BIGGER, BIGGEST.

So your next assignment is to get all your spring and summer clothes out of your closet. Search your jewelry box for large necklaces and earrings and get them ready to wear. And when your collection needs something extra? Have a look at the collection of FlorenceJewelshop, which has a lot of wearable large, not too heavy necklaces and earrings.
