Designers are making, and celebrities are wearing, and basically now everyone’s either wearing or wanting to wear! The Spring 2015 jewelry trends range from exotic inspirations like Indian-inspired to cool ear-cuffs! Here are 6 Spring 2015 jewelry trends that are the absolute must-haves:
Ear cuffs and ear jewels are the #1 trend right now. They can be super classy and feminine to super spikey and badass. They can be shaped like dragons or wings or leaves or they can just be thin streaks. Either way, celebrities like Emma Watson and Jennifer Lawrence are wearing them. I especially love the sleek and sophisticated ear cuffs by Dior.

2. Multiple Rings
I am adoring this trend right now. It came followed by the layered necklaces, layered bracelets, but nonetheless, it came in the list of Spring 2015 jewelry trends!
Multiple rings, thumb rings, stacking rings, mid-finger rings, multi-finger rings, all of it! My personal favorites are simple tubes and raw looking brass, and combinations of black and gold. How to wear this trend? Avoid combining too many colors, instead, combine different shapes or textures and metals. And always leave some negative space or leave a ringless finger.
Lots of designer labels and jewelry designers have come up with animal inspired jewelry, and we are seeing a lot more of this trend on Etsy, Pinterest and other social media. From Cartier introducing their panther collection, to Yves Saint Laurent coming up with a snake pin, Roberto Coin’s horse bracelet, and Van Cleef and Arpels’ elephant shaped jewelry, we are loving it all.

4. Raw Stones
This trend has been around since Serena Van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl wore her geode and druzy necklaces and earrings. It’s still very in, only now instead of just showcasing your raw stone, you want to give it a slight twist with chains, pipes and bars. Agate slices and druzy jewelry can be bought on Etsy.

5. Indian-Inspired Jewelry with Western Outfits
This trend started more than a decade ago, hell, Madonna donned Indian jewelry in 1990’s, and lately, Chanel came up with Indian jewelry in Paris-Bombay collection, Michelle Obama wore Indian-inspired earrings, and now Van Cleef and Arpels has come up with an Indian-inspired collection.
Bollywood celebrities like Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are wearing Indian jewelry with western outfits every other day, and yet this trend hasn’t caught on as much as I’d like to see it. Nonetheless, I’m including it in the list of Spring 2015 jewelry trends. Let’s see more of this, ladies!

Charms were once associated with old-fashioned-ness. But then TV show Gossip Girl featured Blair wearing tiny necklaces of keys and letters, celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kate Middleton, Lindsay Lohan rocked the evil eye jewelry, now our favorite fashion houses like Dior and Dolce & Gabbana are introducing charm pendants and bracelets, and we are seeing much more of charms, both symbolic and otherwise, as a modern and chic style statement.
