2018 Jewelry Trends

I know it just feels like the busy season has ended and we are all still trying to catch our breath. The dust has settled on the holidays, the temperature outside is cold, and spring seems too far away. However before we know it, wedding season will be here swinging in full force.Yes, you can wait to plan outfits and figure out accessories but why not get an early start by keeping on top of the latest jewelry fashion trends before the next season officially starts! Below we have highlighted the top six latest trends and hand picked some pieces.

1. The Shoulder Duster Earring
Though chandelier earrings have always been a classic choice when accessorizing, this season step out of your comfort zone with bigger, bolder, and the baddest shoulder dusting earrings out there. These pieces brush off the dirt on your shoulder every time you move your head and are fun, flirty, and powerful all in one. The long shape help to frame the face and draw the eyes upward. Our favorite PinkBazaar pair are the Drape earrings. The traditional gold finish base with white stone work are dramatized by long swooping pearl strands that sit in a knot just above your shoulders. God bless your earlobes- but all is worth it in the name of fashion no?

2. The Choker
For instant va va voom don a choker- the latest neck craze in jewelry. Though we have always had them, we are seeing such an assortment of both fun and classy chokers come out by all designers. The choker should be your go-to if you are wearing a strapless dress or a gown with a plunging neckline. The great thing about chokers with Indian wear is that you can layer them to create a truly dramatic look for a night out. We love pairing our Dipti Choker set with the Rani Haar necklace to create a vision that is to die for.

3. The Cocktail Ring
Which girl does not enjoy wearing big rings? This is a craze that is becoming more and more popular in Indian jewelry. No longer do rings have to be pure gold and have diamonds for them to be appropriate. The cocktail ring can literally top off any outfit there is. We have over sized mirror rings which are fun and quirky as well as two finger rings that are linked together by pearls. Truly embrace the hand candy by pairing a cocktail ring with our Radha Ring that can be adjusted and worn as a midi!

4.The Forehead Band
Maang Tikkas are our favorite accessories this season. It no longer has to be your wedding day in order for you to adorn a crown. Not only does a maang tikka go with any neckline, its dual purpose of securing the strands of hair off your face make it a perfect reception time accessory. Now you can bounce around to your favorite beat and not have to worry about frizz and disheveled hair because we all know bobby pins for setting up your maang tikka will keep everything in place. Partner a maang tikka with strong eye makeup and a dark lip to fully own the look. Our favorite PinkBazaar Maang Tikka is the Amara Earring and Tikka set. This gold plated beauty is encrusted with tiny mirror accents and has hanging pearl details for an over the top Grecian look. Instant royalty achieved with no tiara necessary!

5. The Delicate Touch
Though we love statements and grand gestures not every accessory needs to make a splash. Dainty pieces are also in, and are so versatile that they are a great investment. Each delicate pieces makes a subtle but lasting impression and as a bonus you can wear this kind of jewelry every day. Our favorite PinkBazaar delicates include the Simi Studs, the Kriti Bangles, and the Manisha Necklace Set.
