There is extra-excitement when preparing our wardrobes and jewelry is no different. The chance to add a little color and fun is irresistible after a long time is just waiting to be tried out.
Your jewelry says a lot about you, but for 2014, it’ll have the chance to say even more, with message and slogan jewelry enjoying a huge rise in popularity. Stock up on these pieces now, because with the many ways this trend can be implemented.
Last year, we saw stacking rings take off in a big way, but this year, every type of jewelry is getting the stacked and layered treatment. Expect to see big armfuls of stacked bangle bracelets, or pendant necklaces combined and layered. Don’t be afraid to mix and match metals, materials, and textures to create many different looks with a rich, eclectic, feel.
The statement jewelry trend is showing no signs of slowing down in this year, and this season, pins and brooches finally get an invite to the party.
You’ll be able to unleash your free spirit this spring, with whimsical motifs making a strong showing on this season’s must-have pendants, charm bracelets and rings.

Pink sapphire, pink tourmaline or amethyst jewelry will also go with all your favorite spring pastels!
Perhaps the biggest jewelry trend of past year, statement necklaces are still going strong in this year. And with so many options now available, it’s easier than ever to add your individual touch to any ensemble. Bright, multicolored pieces are cropping up everywhere now that spring wardrobes are being brought out of the closet, and we’re seeing people experimenting with more variations. Layers, multigem creations, beaded and floral numbers — whether your style is feminine, boho, or rocker-chic, there’s something for everyone this spring.
Cuff bracelets have proved their staying power over the last couple of years, but for this year, they’re getting a chic update in cut-out styles, in line with the rise of everything perforated this season. Slip one on when you’re headed out the door — they’re a great alternative to an armful of bangle bracelets for the woman on the go.
