Dark Mode Off / On

We all like to buy our loved ones nice gifts. It is a good way to express how much they mean to you. For special events nothing says I love you better jewelry. So, today, I thought I would share with you some of the latest jewelry trends.

Mounted coins

A lot of people own a few precious metal coins. If you have a half dollar or another nice coin that is just sitting there doing nothing, why not have it turned into a ring or pendant? That way you can give it as a gift to someone special. Most jewelers that can do repairs have the skills needed to turn a coin into a necklace or ring. It is a relatively inexpensive way to create a unique piece of jewelry. Potentially, you can have the mount engraved with a message to make it even more special. 

Smaller coins can be mounted and used to create bracelets and short necklaces. It is not difficult to pick up batches of small silver coins from dealers, especially silver ones. 

Before you have any coins mounted, remember to check that none of them are super valuable. This short guide will help you to spot the ones that are worth a lot of money. It is important to do this before you have them mounted because the act of mounting them will greatly devalue them.

A pair of heavy hoops

If you have a friend who likes bold jewelry, they will very likely love the gift of a pair of over-sized hoops. This year, they have been a bit feature of a lot of fashion runways. Just be careful not to buy something that is too heavy to wear comfortably.

Enamel jewelry

This is a trend that started last year and is still going strong in 2019. Look out for pieces that will blend in nicely with the colors that your friend or family member is wearing this season.

You can also give them other pieces that elevate their look. For instance, many people are now looking for unique Celtic ring designs to gift their loved ones something special. 

Another bold trend is chains with big links, but, not so big that they do not look elegant. A short length of large link chain worn around the neck looks great whether you are wearing a crisp blouse or a t-shirt.

If you like the idea of a plainer piece of jewelry, but want something a bit different from a chain, then you could look at mens silver bracelets. Simple, elegant, and tidy, silver bracelets are the ideal stocking filler. However, for a bolder effect, these bracelets can be layered up. Or, you could purchase a range of silver bracelets, some plain and some with patterns on them, to create an unusual effect.


Last year, traditional charm bracelets were very much back on-trend. This year, jewelry designers have started to have a bit more fun with this format. They are creating more colorful, modern-looking charms. 

Keep a special eye out for the themed charm bracelets. If you have a friend who is nuts about cats, a bracelet or necklace full of them is bound to appeal.

You can even buy Disney-themed charm bracelets now and choose what characters you want on your bracelet.

Plus, of course, there is no need to buy the entire necklace or bracelet. If your friend already owns one, you could simply buy them a nice charm or two to put on it.

So, there you have it, five interesting jewelry trends you can tap into buy truly unique gifts for the ones you love. If you want to personalize your gift even more, look for items that you can have engraved with a special message or with the recipient’s birthstone.
