For years now, yellow gold has been winning out as the most popular metal for jewelry among fashion insiders. Gold pieces—whether filled or plated, high-end or costume—have been the fashion set’s unofficial go-to accessories to tie their looks together. With the unwavering popularity of yellow gold, we’ve covered everything from the best colors to wear with gold jewelry to the affordable solid-gold pieces that somehow all are priced under $300.
Right now, though, I’ve been sensing some shifts in the jewelry world. Among them, a movement away from gold in favor of silver. Whether worn in the form of chain-link bracelets or sculptural rings (as demonstrated by Christie Tyler above), a pair of modern hoops or a herringbone necklace, silver jewelry is something you’ll be seeing more and more of this year. We also spotted in on the runways—notably at Bottega Veneta with thick chain necklaces—so it is set to be a huge trend in 2020. And the best news? The metal is priced much lower than gold, so go on to shop my edit of the best under-$200 silver jewelry pieces now.
