The year is long and with only two seasons of ready-to-wear shows, the stretch between summer and fall seems infinite. That’s when the inter-season Resort Fashion Week collections step in to save us from the midseason monotony. We sifted through the styles to find you the latest runway jewelry trends, so check out these six trends from the runway.
We saw two designers who liked to pile on the rings, but the two styles were very distinct. Gucci fit cocktail rings onto every finger in every color. In contrast to Gucci’s decadent art deco rings, Chloé kept it modern and simple. While embracing the plentiful look, they used simple gold bands, multiple on one finger, to avoid excess.
As Coco Chanel developed and popularized costume jewelry, she was never one to simplify her jewelry. True to the Chanel image, the current direction under Karl Lagerfeld does not stray. In the Spring/Summer collection, Chanel runway models adorned their wrist in slogan bracelets. In the resort show, they were bedecked several chain link bracelets. While Chanel used several stacked bracelets, Elie Saab opted for a similar effect, but simplified. The golden cuff complimented the blush tones of her 1970s-inspired designs.

True to trend, the statement necklaces of the show were either dazzling and ornate or striking yet minimal. At Oscar de la Renta, the pretty patterns and colors were complimented by equally colorful and beautiful jewelry pieces. Our favorite was a beautiful floarl design in yellows and blues. Ralph Lauren made a minimalist statement with large, round pendant necklaces that matched the shades of his diverse color palette.
