    Spring 2020 Jewelry Trends
    Erin Fader Jewelry loves to stay on top of all the jewelry trends for 2020. Lots of beautiful runway shows have happened and that means new spring jewelry trends are here. Here are the 7 jewelry trends you'll be seeing everywhere come Spring 2020.

    Colorful Jewelry

    We will be seeing lots of colorful jewelry. Try incorporating color into your bling this spring. Multiple tones within each piece will be all the rage. Pair with colorful eyes or bold lips. Big colorful necklaces and earrings? Yes, please.


    Single Earring

    The solo earring is trending this Spring 2020. Think a statement drop or fringe earring, something that stands out. Hair up or down, but a sharp top or jacket will be a must. This trend is an opportunity to select something bold, long, or artistic.


    Oversized Chains

    Big chunky necklaces. We like sparkly or layered ones. Perfect to wear day and night, very convertible. We personally love gold ones, but any will do! The chunkier the better!


    Pearls 

    Yes, pearls are still in spring. They are classic and still going strong. Try earrings or necklaces with natural shaped pearls. We love dainty gold jewelry that incorporates the pearls. Long drop earrings are some of our favorites.


    Big Hoops

    Hoop earrings are a classic and have been trending for quite some time. We love thick, gold, or dainty pairs. Something new to try this season is a double hoop. Did they ever really go out of style? We think not.


    Shoe Jewelry

    Yes, you heard right. Add an ankle chain to your heels or keep an eye out with shoes decorated with bling already. Shoe bling is coming in strong and we’re here for it. Especially in ankle boots, love!


    Layering

    Layering what you already have and adding some new pieces will be an easy way to stay on-trend. We love mixing chains along with coin, chokers, or long pendant necklaces.

    What is the difference between gold filled and gold plated jewelry?

    Have you ever wondered what the difference between gold-filled and gold plated jewelry is? Why gold-filled jewelry is so popular? Well, you’re not alone! So today we wanted to share some useful information.


    What is gold-filled?

    Gold-filled jewelry is jewelry composed of a solid layer of gold. Most high-quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as high carat gold. The core metal is brass and gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight, to get specific. Our Gold-filled items are 14kt gold-filled. Most jewelry made this way can last 10 to 30 years through the layer of gold will eventually wear off. This type of jewelry is great for daily wear and can be easier to take care of.


    What is gold plated?

    Gold plated jewelry is a thin layer of solid gold that is applied to a base of brass which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Gold plating will generally wear off more quickly as it does not stand up to heat, water or wear over long periods of time. Additionally, this type of jewelry tends to be more affordable due to containing smaller amounts of gold.


    What is solid gold?

    Solid gold jewelry is the highest in price and purity. Solid gold jewelry’s value comes from its glamorous color and shine. Often gold is made into an alloy by mixing it with other metals in order to create a stronger metal than pure gold.


    The difference between gold-filled or gold plated and solid gold?

    Gold-filled or gold plated jewelry is a fraction of the cost of solid gold jewelry and accessories, comparatively, over time they will also degrade and discolor.


    Currently, Erin Fader Jewelry sells a variety of each type of metal made only in the highest standards. We encourage sustainability due to the longer wearing nature of our gold-filled and solid gold jewelry pieces.
