12 Jewelry Trends for 2015: Statement Necklaces

The annual list of 12 Jewelry Trends for 2015 serves as a guideline for store purchases in the new year, highlighting pieces and materials trending now, based on the clothing, color, red carpet, and real-life influences at work in the market. Statement necklaces are the 12th trend on the list. Here are five new options for retailers to consider stocking.

Statement necklaces. Just as varied earring styles reigned supreme in 2014, necklaces will take that must-have spot in 2015. Jewelers will want bibs, chokers, and long and short pendant and station numbers on hand to adorn fashion’s veritable buffet of necklines. Some pieces will be ideal for layering and gifting, while others will simply make a strong outfit statement. Traditional fashion rules keep getting tossed out the proverbial window, so have fun helping shoppers create their own.
