After months of bundling up in turtlenecks and scarfs, it's finally time to let your neck see the sun again, which means it's time to refresh your necklace collection. We've been keeping an eye on Instagram (where jewelry trends are always prevalent) for the must-know styles of 2019, and we narrowed it down to seven finalists. You may recall that last year, few trends held a candle to coin necklaces, but this year, retailers are thinking outside the box. There are undoubtedly more trends to embrace than there were last year, all of which are sure to make a statement (even if it's just a subtle one), and all of which are available at both high and low price points. Keep scrolling to shop the top seven necklace trends of 2019.
The seashell trend is picking up right where it left off last summer, and it's going to be bigger than ever. The key to nailing this trend is choosing pieces that read less "beach day" and more polished.
The charm necklaces you probably collected during your youth are back! You can go with an authentic style that hints at the '90s or something a little more modern (like the elongated-chain necklace and layered charm necklace below).

Colorful beaded styles are the perfect complement to spring and summer outfits, so be sure to stock up on this fun Instagrammable trend.
If you prefer a lot of sparkle on your neck, now's the time to invest in the tennis necklace trends. But if you don't have the hefty budget for a flossin' neck (as Ariana Grande would say), there are plenty of fun rhinestone options on the market.
As opposed to the delicate layers of necklaces that were a thing in seasons past, this year it's all about chunky gold chain necklaces. You can thank the return of the '80s for this one.
No sorority-girl pearls here. This time around, pearls are decidedly cool and unique. Focus on irregular, baroque styles as opposed to cultured.
Don't worry—there's no need to retire your coin necklaces. However, this year, fashion girls are layering their medallion pendants as opposed to wearing just one.
