We write about Instagram trends a lot. But you can't count on photos alone to drive what's going to be the next big thing. That's a fact I was reminded of earlier this year when I sat down at breakfast with BaubleBar's Co-Founder and CMO Daniella Yacobovsky. We were talking about some of the jewelry brand's most popular pieces and I was surprised to hear her mention the fact that the brand had seen a change. After years of gold jewelry dominating, people wanted silver. "We have noticed a large surge in searches for silver on our site so far this year, starting around January or February, Yacobovsky recaps via email. We introduced two of our most popular styles [in silver] and they sold out in under 24 hours and built up a large waiting list."
The funny thing about this trend is that while there's clearly demand, the shift hasn't quite caught on with the same momentum according to the pictures. While I found a handful of inspiring pictures from women who are mixing metals and making a switch from gold to silver, it hasn't oversaturated social media (as can often happen). On that note, I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to style silver now along with a little shopping. Read on to check it all off.
One ring style that's become a fashion favorite over the last year is the signet. Silver offers a cool alternative to gold (or you can always wear one of each).

Hoops and simple sculptural earrings feel perfectly suited to summer.
Pendants, both on their own or stacked in multiples continue to be a favorite jewelry style.
If you're ready to make a major statement, don't shy away from eye-catching sculptural earrings.
