In order to welcome something new into your closet, you often have to say goodbye to something else. This is an easy sentiment to remember when it comes to clothing, but as far as jewelry is concerned, we often turn a blind eye. Since your jewelry (no matter how you store it) takes up significantly less space than a coat or a pair of jeans, the buildup of excess and outdated pieces can easily go unnoticed. Spring-cleaning involves all areas of your wardrobe, including jewelry—fine, costume, and everything in between.
Here to help us decide what to clean out and what to keep from our jewelry drawers this season are a handful of the industry’s most well-respected jewelry designers. Their quotes are strictly from an industry standpoint—what they have been seeing in the market and what their customers have been spending on. That being said, we are also huge proponents of relying on yourself to decide what is worth keeping in your closet and what isn’t. Our hope for this story is to simply give you an outsider’s opinion, which you can take or leave. Style is individual and very personal, so if you wear all of the jewelry trends they said are “out,” more power to you.
Ahead, find out what they have to say about the outdated jewelry trends, in addition to the spring jewelry trends to consider replacing them with. From turquoise to colored gemstone baguettes, we have a feeling you’ll be head over heels in love with all the jewelry trends ahead.
