4 Outdated Jewelry Trends and 4 That Are Right on the Money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