Filling your closet with the latest fashion clothes isn’t enough these days. It is equally important to complement it with trendy jewelry as well. Choosing the right kind of accessories can go a long way in improving the look and feel of your attire and makes you stand apart from the rest of the crowd.

The trend of this season is to go bold. Big, bright coloured gems are back in fashion, and experts say this is a direct result of online jewelry shopping. Consumers are looking to experiment with jewelry styles and are opting for rich colours such as Amber, Teal, Peacock, and Topaz for gems. For metals, gold and silver are the most preferred.

Layering your jewelry is also in fashion, this season. You don’t need to overdo it, but use the right kind of pieces arranged in a systematic way, particularly with yellow gold jewelry.

Another jewelry trend making a mark this season is the popularity of right hand rings. Initially started in the United States, this trend is now picking up in other parts of the world. Women can be seen flaunting diamond rings on their right hands, as a symbol of their independence and empowerment. With the women’s rights revolution catching pace in India, this trend can be expected to work here as well. Another variation of this is the cocktail ring, in which big, bold, bright coloured gems can be seen sported on women’s right hands.

Apart from these latest trends, a major proportion of the jewelry market is captured by demands in the vintage jewelry section. These never go out of fashion as a matter of fact, but simply keep reinventing themselves as modern interpretations of timeless classics.

Online jewelry shopping in India has certainly picked up, and has widened the horizons of the jewelry market. This can be taken as a good sign, and we can expect some major changes in the kind of jewelry pieces we get to see around us in times to come.
