NYFW Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Jewelry Trends

The trends that we have been seeing for the past few years on the runway, red carpet and in the design studios continue to evolve. There are a few new themes but for the most part, the styles that have been most popular such as hoop earrings, charm necklaces, link chains and pearls which have all been in revival mode are back on the fall/winter 2020-2021 ready-to-wear catwalks and are dominating the jewelry design studios.

Here are the most prevalent trends that we saw during NYFW (New York Fashion Week) and those that continue to capture the attention of independent and renowned jewelers:


Pearls have evolved into one of the most popular trends for 2020. We first saw this theme emerge last spring and it continues with all types of pearls from South Sea to Keshi to cultured pearls that take shape in a range of silhouettes that include streamlined and sleek, organic and rough hewn and edgy uber modern silhouettes in all classifications of jewelry.

From elongated rectangular and oval links to entwined styles—chains continue to be popular in handmade and cast looks and in every classification of jewelry. Earrings are linked together to form linear styles with movement or are ‘frozen’ into hoop earrings. Bracelets are textural and borrow inspiration from infinity knots and architectural details. Necklaces range from short to ultra long and from feminine and delicate to bold and chunky. White diamond pave and accents infuse these looks with a elegant vibe while black diamonds and black rhodium plated finishes imbue them with a chic rock and roll ‘80s feeling.

Remember when hoops used to go in and out of style? This time they are sticking around. With all of the excitement and inventiveness in earrings over the past couple of years, it’s no wonder that designers continue to play with different details and effects in hoops and they have become a mainstay in different variations in many independent and renowned collections. A favorite of celebrities, they appeared on the red carpet throughout 2019 and 2020. And who hasn’t seen the skit that J. Lo performed which revolved around her favorite earring styles when she hosted SNL in December 2019. For 2020, they seem to take on an ‘80s and 90’s feeling with textured and sculptural styles in gold that are bold and statement making.

Designers have been neglecting spiders in favor of lady bugs, bees and beetles but they are being brought back into style. Luckily these creepy crawlers are in precious metals and are interpreted in delicate pedants, bold rings and gem encrusted brooches-the only way we will be delighted for them to to crawl on our necks and spin a web around our fingers.

Diamonds are not just for awards season and A-list celebrities. They turned up on the runway in dramatic and glamorous styles. Chandelier and swinging pendant earrings, diamond bibs and collars which drip with all around diamond drops and modern interpretations of classic beauties are the trends to watch in this category.
