If you’re a regular Who What Wear reader, you’re probably well aware of which jewelry trends are currently everywhere and which ones are slowly dying out. Interestingly enough, though, the rise of Instagram-induced trends has influenced which jewelry items people are buying and, consequently, which ones they’re just not shopping for as much anymore.
According to a recent Edited report, jewelry sales for bracelets and rings have gone down by 2.7% and 3.2% respectively over the last year. It seems that earrings and necklaces have quickly taken their place. If you think about the kind of jewelry you first notice on a person, necklaces and earrings are unmissable since they frame your face, so it makes sense that these two categories specifically are having a huge moment. With all the selfies on Instagram, it’s only natural that the necklaces and earrings adorning the wearer will get their fair share of screen time.
