The jewelry industry is one largely based on trends and what is deemed to be “in” at the moment. A business that is based so much on the consumers taste is bound to be constantly changing and the most popular piece of one year is almost certain to have dropped out of existence the next. We’re going to be looking at the most popular jewelry models in 2011 and also give you a slight preview of what to expect next year. Jewelry has been a symbol of power, elegance, beauty, and sophistication dating all the way back to ancient rulers. Diamonds have a profound effect on use because of their simplicity and also because of the astounding shimmer and shine. Here are the diamonds that had people going bananas all last year.
The type of pieces that everyone was after this year was the large attention grabbers that would be sure to give you a sore neck. Large chain necklaces were the absolute number one model of this year. Celebrities and just the everyday person were looking to make a bold statement and there is no better way to enter a room than having your necklace is the main accent to your ensemble. Chain necklaces that dangle lower than the average piece exude air of elegance and almost royalty. Another extremely popular look in 2011 was natural and tribal looking pieces. Having a natural looking bracelet or necklace is simple and may go unnoticed at first glance, but is great for complementing almost any outfit. They also are not flashy which is good for anyone wanting to wear beautiful jewelry but not be an attention grabber when they walk in to a room. Sometimes, simplicity and understated pieces can wind up saying more in the end about whom you are and your tastes than a highly decorated piece could.
Another surprise trend that broke onto the scene in 2011 was motif pieces. Motif pieces can embody the shape of animals and can be a great way to set you apart from the normal pieces that you see on a day to day basis. Anything from golden snakes wrapping themselves around your wrist to butterfly gently dangling from your ears can be an original way to wear motif pieces. Motif pieces are also different because of the fact that they can be as flashy or as understated as you’d like to match your personal tastes. The last big trend that created waves this year was big and overstated bracelets. Large bulky bracelets have become an absolute must have for any fashion lover wanting to keep up with the trends. These were just a brief look into the most popular jewelry models in 2011, and the year still isn’t even over!
With any luck, you’ll be able to keep up with the rapid pace at which these trends are coming about. It’s not easy to be a fashion icon and you shouldn’t always go with what the next trend is. Base your jewelry preferences on what you think looks best and maybe mix in the best of the current trends to go along with it. Decide for yourself what the most popular jewelry models of 2011 are and will be.
