Why We Love The Geometric Jewelry Trend

Jewelry trends come and go, with inspiration swinging between nature and geometric, man-made shapes. At the moment geometric jewelry is really having a moment.

Geometric jewelry has been seen throughout history and across many cultures. However, it was really the Art Deco movement in the 1920s that cemented the trend, as the sharp clean lines of jewelry styles at the time celebrated the successes of the industrial age.

Outside of jewelry the geometric trend is also popular in accessories, housewares and another design styles.

If you are not already sold on the trend you soon will be. Remember, just because you wear a square doesn't mean you are one. Here are some things we love about the geometric jewelry trend.

Geometric Accessories Are Perfect For The Office

Geometric jewelry is great for everyday wear, perfect for the office or occasions where bohemian accessories just aren't suitable. Geometric styles look tidy and chic, with the bonus that they don't get caught on your clothing or hair like other dangly jewelry styles.

Geometric earrings in particular are great for the office as they work well with corporate or up-do hairstyles where the earrings can really be the center of attention, without looking out of place with conservative dress codes. You spend a huge chunk of your week at work, so you may as well look good while you’re there.

Geometric Doesn’t Always Mean Minimalist

Minimalists love Geometric jewelry, but that doesn't mean these styles are boring. Geometric shapes can be matched with a variety of stones in different colors to add an extra pop or sparkle to simple shapes. Long rectangular shapes in necklaces or earrings can also make a statement of their own.

It's A Trend Made For Baguette Diamonds

Baguette diamonds may be named after French bread but really, they are rectangular in shape and came to popularity in the art nouveau and art deco periods. Although some woman still love a circle, baguette diamonds have become a staple for engagement rings and other diamond jewelry. It's a diamond cut that’s perfect for the geometric trend.

You Can Go Big Or Go Small

Geometric styles don't have to be understated, large oversize geometric shapes often make the biggest statement of all. With this trend you can choose a subtle or sensational approach depending on the requirements of your outfit.

You Can Choose Your Shape

Geometric styles can include circles, triangles, rectangles, squares and many more shapes, so there's no need to be bored or boring.

Or Choose Multiple Shapes

Geometric shapes are also great for layering, they can even be combined into one style, with the layered jewelry trend having a major moment this is a great way to hit two trends with one stone - pun intended.

Geometric Doesn't Date

While geometric styles are ‘on-trend’ at the moment, they are also extremely classic in nature. Geometric jewelry has been a staple for the past century, so you know anything you buy in this style will be a good investment because it doesn’t date like other fads.

If you are not sure where to start with the geometric trend try an elegant bar necklace, this simple style has clean lines that make it effortless to pair with any outfit. You can shop the trend now at Phoenix Roze.
