As we get ready to leave 2020 behind and ring in a new year, designers have come up with many gorgeous ways to create an appealing halo effect, resulting in a lot of dazzle in the world of jewels and gems. The trend forecast is calling for lots of bling, bright colors, and bold pieces. I’m so excited to share what some of the pieces will be looking like, come next year! So let’s just dive right in to some of the biggest jewelry trends that you are going to see in 2021. 


When it comes to layering, pops of color can dress up any outfit, day or night. This Saks Fifth Avenue Multi-Color Ming Pearl Necklace is set with 18KT gold, with beautiful different colored beads surrounding it. 

Big On The Bling

One trend that we are going to see is big and bold earrings—attention-catching pieces that will draw all eyes to your adornments. Another element that we will see are geometric shapes, such as circles and triangles that will give an edge and a unique look to what you are wearing. These BVLGARI multi-color earrings have all the desired pizzazz and bling made with 18KT rose gold, without looking overly gaudy. 

Choosing Chains

Big, bold chains are in the forecast for 2021! Pop one of these beauties around your neck for an instant glow-up. I personally love this Graduated Link Necklace from Tiffany & Co. It sparkles and shines, just like anyone who will be wearing it! The 18K gold tadds elegance and sophistication to the wearer, and it commands attention, it is definitely a head-turner.

Bright Colors

If you are a fan of wearing bright colors like I am, then get excited, because 2021 is all about that bright and the bold in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets! A pop of color can change your whole mood, just like this eye-catching Rainbow Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 14K yellow gold. It conveys sophistication and fun at the same time.

Mix and Match

This coming year is all about asymmetrical earrings, or making a statement by wearing a single earring. This look commands attention and is definitely eye-catching. These J’ADIOR EARRINGS, sold by the asymmetrical pair, are the perfect dangling earring to accompany any outfit. 

Charmed, I’m Sure

Charm necklaces will still going strong well into 2021. From all kinds of beads and baubles to gorgeous charms made of mixed media, we are going to be seeing a lot more of these necklaces. I love this Elsa Peretti® Scorpion Necklace from Tiffany & Co. The scorpion in and of itself is an elegant and commanding charm. You can also play around and layer different charm necklaces to change up the look.
