Learn how adding a few angles and edges will shape up any jewelry wardrobe. Geometric jewelry trends are soaring in popularity. What’s more compelling, though, is the spread of industries this trend covers. Smartphones are squarer and sleeker. Cars are more shapely and look futuristic. Architecture is modern and well proportioned. Even our food takes on new shapes. This far-reaching effect is what defines a true, healthy trend. After all, as fads come and go, trends emerge and evolve.
Here are four of this season’s sharpest geometric jewelry trends and our favorite new pieces—
Baguettes by the dozen
Baguette diamonds, named for long French loaves of bread, came into the spotlight somewhere during the Art Deco and Art Nouveau jewelry periods. Upon their arrival onto the jewelry scene, women chose baguettes as a break from the traditional round diamond. And still today, these boxy little stones stand apart and are perfect for expressing individuality— an easy selling point for today’s buyer.
Like diamond and gemstone facets, polished metal reflects light just as well. Jewelry with sharp edges and angular forms express detail, depth, and dimension. Chiseled bands and jagged necklines shimmer in the spotlight and make sound impressions of their own.
Get in the groove
Grooved details add appeal to an otherwise unembellished band. Tell the hand-carved story to sell one-of-a-kind men’s bands and ladies’ stackable standouts.
Yep. Negative space jewelry is still a front-running favorite. Because, well, bare metal is beautiful. This trend celebrates metal and its many textures, forms, and finishes. These pieces command attention through their elegant simplicity and enduring appeal.
