Trends in jewelry in contemporary times have undergone a drastic change. The traditional slim and elegant designs are completely out of fashion.
Nowadays people prefer the chunky, hefty, huge, colorful and sometimes even bohemian designs in jewelry. Now it’s all about the dazzle of the jewelry rather than the sophistication.
The latest trend in jewelry includes accessories which are carved in ornate designs and present an extravagant look. The vintage styles of earlier eras are back in fashion replacing the sophistication of recent times. People prefer accessories in layered or textured patterns which display a grand façade.

Jewelry pieces are carved with motifs of flowers, fringes, animal formations, leaves, etc. Snakes, cats, panthers, birds and sea creatures make a recurrent appearance in jewelry deigns and motifs.Long and wide earrings are in vogue these days.
Women prefer danglers and chandelier style earrings to subtle and sophisticated pearl earrings. There has been a persistent increase in the trend of hoops in the past few years. Necklaces and pendants are now available in a hefty and dramatic look. Collar necklaces, chokers, etc are hot favorites this season. Chunky and raw pieces of precious stones are topping the charts in jewelry designs.
