Every season we see fresh jewelry trends in runways. For winter 2020, we’re seeing more jewelry that’s bright, sparkly, and downright statement-making. These offerings are putting an end to the dainty, barely-there accessories that ruled in seasons past. From the larger-than-life chain link necklaces from Bottega Veneta to the crystal chandelier earrings at Paco Rabanne, it’s never been more appealing to go all-out on a full jewelry look.
In this article, we’ve rounded up five jewelry trends that will define the winter season. Designers found a way to incorporate these cheeky accessories and opulent jewelry even in the minimalist, gender-neutral, or edgy runways.
1. Large Chain Links
Almost every piece from Bottega Veneta collections is sure to be popular, but the oversized chain link necklaces dazzle like no other especially when layered over sumptuous knits. Jewelry designers crafted earrings and necklaces out of large chain links in precious metals. The flowy designs exude a more glamorous look rather than grunge. The stunning oversized chain links showed up on chunky golden chokers at J.W. Anderson and on a golden necklace with a red heart pendant at Oscar de la Renta.
Winter jewelry trends are seeing more pearls – in fact, copious use of them. The delicate and feminine pearl stood out as one of the most popular materials in the more bourgeois collections of the largest Parisian fashion houses. Dior matched a mature and romantic collection with elegant pearl necklaces that sat snugly around the bottom of the neck. The pieces were embellished with rhinestones. Meanwhile, Chanel was everything but subtle with their ornate chokers and large hanging earrings totally covered with these precious little spheres.
3. Dripping with Rhinestones
Could anything be more dazzling than a cascade of sparkling stones along the wrist, décolletage, or the side of the neck? Jewelry studded with rhinestones makes for some of the most luxurious and striking winter runway accessories. Paco Rabanne and Lowe, Esteban Cortazar, and Christopher Kane runways offer pieces replete with these stones.
4. Ear Armor
This is probably the fiercest trend of the season. The ear armor refers to cuffs or earrings that cover the bulk of the ear helix – a fashion statement that’s like no other. Each pair of earrings on the Prabal Gurung fashion show was bigger and longer than the previous one, so the ear armor fit right in. These ear cuffs are fun, colorful, and so extra.
5. Colorful Gemstones
Winter collections this year are overflowing with oversized pieces, and many of them are studded with colorful gems. One of the most extreme and showstopping runways this season was Moschino, where Jeremy Scott embellished large gold chain necklaces with massive gemstones in all colors of the rainbow.
