Since the new year is upon us, now is the perfect time to revisit some of the most popular jewelry trends of 2009. Here are three of our favorites that don’t show any signs of stopping. We’re hopeful that they’ll keep on truckin’ right through 2010.
Chain necklaces. These were incredibly popular this year – and we don’t mean the industrial links that resemble a dog collar. The ones that we favored were delicate and airy, adding a little glamour to every outfit. We like this trend for its versatility. A long chain necklace looks just as appropriate with a t-shirt as it does when you’re dressed for a night on the town. We especially love hammered metals.
Giant baubles. From oversized cocktail rings to gi-normous necklaces, sparkly, flashy pieces were all the rage in 2009. Maybe Americans were indulging their penchant for ostentatious displays of wealth despite (or because of) a shaky economy. Whatever the reason, we’re glad that big jewelry made a comeback. We say, wear your huge pearls and flashy cuff bracelets with pride!
