For true jewelry lovers, you will be excited by the beautiful diamond necklace trends seen in 2012 and expected to continue into 2013. The key takeaway of it all? A necklace – no matter how bold or how simple – is the best way to brighten up any outfit and is now considered the ultimate accessory.
A trend that seemed to back out for a while, long necklaces have finally made their comeback. Our best guess as to why? The trend of layering jewelry is also back, and long diamond necklaces are perfect to twist and layer. Similar to how scarves and belts are worn, long necklaces are perfect over a dress, or a tunic and leggings.
This trend continues to be popular after raging onto the fashion scene in 2011. Why are these necklaces so loved? With super dramatic style, bib necklaces can be truly worn with anything from a little black dress to a tee shirt and shorts.
Short & Simple
Almost like a choker or “collar” necklace, short and simple diamond necklaces are another option for the more conservative woman this year. As a style that truly never goes away, it does seem be picking up its popularity in a variety of designs. A classic diamond solitaire or even a fun shape such as a flower or star are perfect for this trend that hits right at your collarbone and is universally flattering. Try this style with a wide-collared top, such as a boat-neck style, or use it to highlight a strapless dress that shows off your neck and shoulders.
As we already mentioned, layering necklaces is an extremely popular trend of this season and one of the most stylish ways to show off several of your favorite pieces of diamond jewelry at once! For more tips on how properly layer, check out our page on Layering and Stacking.
