Trade alert: Get spring started with these so-extra looks
We are now officially into meteorological spring, so it's time to talk about trends for the warmer weeks ahead - despite the weather outside trying to tell us otherwise.
Now's the perfect opportunity for jewellery buyers to be building up their stock in advance of customers coming in looking for accessories to complete their spring/summer outfits, as it will allow you to get ahead of the competition.
We've been taking a look at some of this season's biggest trends in costume jewellery in a bid to help you work out what's hot - and what you may like to purchase in order to establish that portfolio of must-haves that will keep you the first port of call for fashionistas.
Harper's Bazaar has pointed out that spring's biggest jewellery trends are "playful and unapologetically bold", meaning you're likely to see dainty cast aside in favour of oh-so-extra.
The magazine recommended having some fun with accessories over the coming weeks, with Vogue also highlighting the big and beautiful over the ladylike.
Here are a few key trends you'll want to keep on top of, together with some product suggestions from our site here at Majique to get you started.
The spring 2019 catwalks were full of dangly earrings made up of lots of crystals and they're now making their way to Instagram and beyond. Ariana Grande has been spotted in this style, while we also noticed Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez sporting a dazzling pair as she watched the Juventus game last night (March 12th 2019).
Dripping crystals can be teamed with everything from a little black dress to a T-shirt and jeans and you can get some fabulous ones in a rhodium tone here.
Pearls have once again been reimagined and revived for spring, turning up in everything from ear cuffs to geometric bracelets. It's all about making them look cool and funky, which you can easily achieve with our gorgeous friendship bracelet-style pearl bracelet set with crystals.
The fashion world must be feeling the love this season, as big hearts were everywhere on accessories. Balenciaga and Escada featured them heavily and it's an 80s-inspired trend that we're keen to embrace because it's all about fun.
At Majique we have scores of heart designs in stock - you can start browsing the heart necklaces here to start you off.
By the seaside
Everything beach-inspired proved to be a huge hit on the runways, with Michael Kors weighing in heavily on the trend by showcasing shell-inspired rings and pendants on his models.
This will look great in costume jewellery as the warmer weather arrives - we love our stunning opal-look earrings in a silver setting, which we think will be a sell-out as people seek to copy the styles of their favourite designers.
The stars have aligned to make anything celestial and a little bit mystical bang on-trend this season. We've seen crescent moons and stars on so many accessories on our social media feeds, and they're perfect for creating that hippy vibe that people love at this time of year.
We've got loads in stock that you could use for this look, starting with our pretty gold-tone star choker here.
It's well worth having pieces for each of these trends in stock in your fashion jewellery range, so grab a coffee, sit back and browse - and let Majique cover all the bases for accessories this spring and summer.
