Jewelry trends for 2018

The end of year is approaching, this is great time to see what jewelry trends 2018 is bringing.




Oversized earrings

After the reign of the ear cuffs, 2018 will be remembered by long earrings that elegantly settle past the shoulders. Oversized hoops are also seen on Fashion Weeks as an announcement of new things to come. Doubled-up, stretched or redesigned, they renew the irresistible classic.

Following the 2018 trend, earrings have found a new hidden harmony. If last year’s forms were similar, it’s all about an entirely different passion in the approaching year. Mix & Match is more imaginative than ever this season, with a blend of materials and different designs.
