Over the Top
This jewellery style is making waves around the world. Now maximalist style is supposed to be over-the-top, but some people like to keep it subtle. If you want to ride in the trend current but do not want to look loaded, you need to work on the styling. The key is to pick a theme, colour or body part and just focus on styling it correctly. Stacking it is going to be your thing, if you’re new to the larger-than-life accessories — just get stacked in a few dainty and minimal pieces to create the maximalist effect. Or you can choose just one huge, sculptural piece to complement your look. There are a gazillion options in the market to choose from. Accessories accentuated with label logos like Gucci and CHANEL also count in the maximalist wave due to their exaggerated engravings.
Sea-inspired shell jewellery is also among those turning big and bigger. Further, we are all set to see shell jewellery take on extra-large, almost exaggerated, proportions. No more dainty shells or surfer-like pendants, this time it will be a statement piece or nothing at all. The spring of 2020 is ready to be decked in plenty of adornments that made a bold statement but still felt cool and modern.
Jewellery in geometric shapes and designs also trend owing to their minimalistic and formal appeal. Geometric jewellery is great for everyday wear, perfect for the office or occasions where bohemian accessories just aren’t suitable. Geometric styles look tidy and chic and oftentimes carry hidden meanings and messages of pop culture.
Jewellery designers across the world have been on a roll recently. Their creativity blossoming with each creation has been delighting us with interesting combinations and varied textures. The modern approach to surface embellishment makes use of classic profiles with raw materials and an otherworldly aesthetic. The texture on jewellery can either come effectively by engraving or embossing different patterns and motifs. The use of precious gems and stones on metals also provides an interesting synergy.

Hence, from everything related to motifs and embossments to texture effect is coming by the colourful stones in jewellery.
