4 Outdated Jewelry Trends and 4 That Are Right on the Money

I think many of you would agree that jewelry is the most personal of fashion purchases. Everyone wears jewelry differently—some people might wear a certain ring or bracelet 24/7, while others only put something on for a special occasion. Some might wear cherished family heirlooms, while others revel in experimenting with of-the-moment trends. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, one thing's for sure: jewelry holds a special place in every fashion lover's heart. 

I recently mined Instagram to discover what jewelry trends stylish women are and aren't wearing right now, and I came away with some fascinating findings. That said, keep in mind that jewelry trends come and go, so certainly anything that is less popular right now could come back in the future. What goes around comes around, after all. Scroll down to see what's in and out right now.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
