What’s New in The Ear Rings?

Over-sized, bold, and statement earrings are going to be a thing in 2020. You may have already seen models wearing supersized hoops in different fashion shows. So, if you are going to invest in new earrings this year, invest in large hooped ones because they are here to stay for 2020.

Bridal Sets Are Changing

Elegant diamond bridal sets have passed the test of time, but 2020 has something more fancy to offer. Diamond double halo bridal sets filled with a lot and a lot of diamonds in a detailed manner are already a hit. If you want to go with something simple, that’s your choice, but 2020 demands it to be a little extra this year.

Bracelets- A Forever Hit

When it comes to bracelets, this year you can wear anything you want as long as it matches your overall look and personality. You can get a pair of bracelets to share with your best friend or a statement bracelet that makes you look and feel fabulous. You can even get one with your favorite movie quotes and probes.  2020 is welcoming all elegant bracelets.

What About Engagement Rings?

Just like bracelets, engagement rings are also up to your personal preferences. However, we have a little tip for you. While choosing an engagement ring for your partner, keep their personality and choice in your mind and we guarantee they will love it.

What’s the Update in Necklaces?

It seemed at the end of 2019 that this would be the last year for the chokers, but from the very start of 2020, they made a grand entry in the form of huge chains. You can get an idea from the latest jewelry collection by Channel. They have made quite a statement with their oversized chain chokers and we have a feeling that it is going to be a big hit this year. Pair your choker with a dress that compliments it and watch yourself shine above everyone.

The bottom line is that when it comes to fashion jewelry, you have to be very up to date with new trends. An outdated piece of jewelry can kill your whole vibe and you will not be able to make the statement that you want to make. So, check your jewelry box today and see how many updates you need.

Fashionable Accessories and Jewelry Gift Ideas for Her


Fashionable accessories and jewelry are an essential part of a fashionista’s wardrobe, taking an outfit from fine to fabulous just seconds, whether it is a pair of shoes, a new bag or a simple hair accessory. Whether she wants zebra-print boots or a Simone Rocha tote, she’ll be delighted with a gift that helps her both look and feel amazing.

Designer bags

One of the last bags designed by Karl Lagerfeld, the Chanel 19 Bag is inspired by the classic 2.55 bag which was designed by Coco Chanel in February 1955 and is likely to become the brands next classic.

For a larger tote bag, consider the acrylic and faux pearl-embellished leather tote from Simone Rocha. This stunning bag is shaped and polished to look like a pearl that can also be worn across the body.

Animal-Print Boots

Tap into her wild side with animal print boots that can be worn with a day dress, denim or her favorite little black dress. It’s your choice for the style of boot, from cowboy boots with zebra stripes to leopard print ankle boots from Yves Saint Laurent. If you’re not sure which animal print to choose, try a simple mixed animal print ankle boot with brown-striped zebra and leopard. Slouchy silhouette boots have a sexy look when paired with a LBD, making it perfect for date-night. Knee-high boots look great with skinny jeans.

Hair accessories

Hair accessories are an easy way to change up a look from season to season. Choose from ribbons, scarves, and flowers, but also jewels for fancy occasions, including cascades of Swarovski crystals over the head. Scarves have a hippie and retro vibe depending on the way they are styled, without acting like a cover.

There are major trends in jewelry this year. Some of these are new takes on old themes. This makes your gift choices a lot easier, as if they liked a similar style in the past, they’re likely to love the new take by modern designers.

Bold colors

Jewelry is the perfect way to add color to a look. Bright floral and beaded pieces, gemstones and mismatched colors are all about having fun with accessories to make a statement. This trend means it is simple to find awesome anniversary gifts for her since each year is marked by a particular gem that you can match to your gift. Whilst pearl is for 30 years of marriage and diamond for your 60th anniversary, the lesser-known stones include the fifth anniversary stone is sapphire and the 16th peridot.

Super-sized jewelry

Hoop earrings in gold have been supersized to wear with everything from power suits, to LBDs and jeans. Chain-link necklaces have also been seen on the catwalk at far larger sizes than previously. The key to styling an oversized piece of chain-link jewelry is to contrast the size with something more delicate like a single diamond necklace.

Single earrings

Instead of matching earrings, catwalk models were wearing just one earring. Crystal styles that cascaded past the shoulder and ornate gold version earrings are on-trend in an explosion of color. Bright floral and beaded pieces, gemstones and mismatched colors are all about having fun with accessories to make a statement.

Pearls are one of this year’s hair accessory trends, pinned into braids, the base of ballerina buns or dotted through the hair for a romantic touch to glamorous retro hairstyles. You can buy pearl earrings where you have the option of detaching it whenever you wish, leaving a simple hoop earring.

4 Earring Trends to Try This Spring


Earrings can be simple like a pair of everyday studs, or they can be daring and dangly like a pair of ornate chandelier earrings. Unfortunately, earrings tend to be the piece of jewelry that get left behind and forgotten since most women opt to wear their hair down over their ears.

Spring Accessories to Amp Up Your Style


Spring is finally here, and in celebration of the warmer weather, we are bringing you the pieces you need to have in your wardrobe this season. While I am definitely not a proponent of replacing your entire wardrobe each season with the latest and greatest items, there is no harm in investing in accessories that will uplift your look—and these will certainly do the trick. 

Colorful Bags
While color returns in full force to our spring wardrobe, it always comes packaged just a little bit differently. This year, it’s all about the bag. In addition to bold colors, this season’s bags will feature some interesting shapes. From slouchy shapes to more structured aesthetics, nothing is off limits this season. Runway shows like Fendi, Marni, Proenza Schouler, Prada, and Dior, just to name a few, are good references as we curate our wish lists.

Trendy Shoes
For those who aren’t quite ready to show off their toes that have been hiding all winter long, it’s time to invest in a seriously stylish pair of flats. While the flat is the usual go-to shoe for spring, every season we search for deviations of the classic cut. The ease of beauty and comfort is sometimes hard to master, but these Free People loafers are the perfect combination. Pair these with jeans or work slacks for a casual or more professional interpretation.

Baseball Caps
Baseball caps emerged in full force this past winter with funny catch phrases on the front, but they are not just meant as comedic items. They have transitioned into a spring fashion staple. You can find solid polyester ones like this one from ASOS, or you can wear one that’s more colorful. When the sun comes out to play, we need to have some protection, and these hats are the answer. The best thing about this emerging trend is you can always play the retro or vintage card and pull out your parents’ old sports caps, thus recycling fashions, making an old a new.

Chunky Earrings
While statement jewelry has been a term in fashion for years, most often what we turn to is a collar necklace or a piece with a larger plate. Another way we would rock some statement jewelry is bangles or stackable bracelets. But this spring, it is all about the earring. Light and large, they are artistic pieces reminding us of sculptures and statues. With minimal makeup and a bare chest, these items make the look come alive. While still gaudy in nature, they are almost minimalist, not calling for any other pieces around it to distract from its presence.

Mismatched Earrings

We’ve all suffered through that devastating moment when you come to find that an earring is missing after a long night out. Although we may never wear it again, we have the habit of keeping them stashed away in our jewelry boxes. Here’s an idea, try wearing mismatched earrings. You can DIY or buy a, not so identical, pair. Look no further than your own jewelry box, or this could be an excuse to shop and splurge. Many celebrities have been spotted sporting the unconventional look.

It always boils down to two routes, subtle and dramatic. When it comes to mismatched earrings you can elect either. If you’re weary of the trend, try a subtle look; pair two different studs together that make a cohesive look. If you’re feeling bold, pair a stud with a chandelier earring.

This trend is meant to be an attention grabber, so have fun with it. There really isn’t a way to miss the mark when it comes to mismatching. You can go to a department store, or rummage through your own pile of earrings and get creative. Mix and match however you please because the opportunities are endless.

(If it works for Gwyneth Paltrow, it can work for you.)

About Royal Things

neonyellowAmber Royal is a second-chance kind of artisan.  She began with a jewelry business named Royal Things selling not only her handmade jewelry, but vintage, too.  She was originally compelled to work with the jewelry to fulfill the mission of bringing meals to those who needed the extra help.  Realizing that there other modes of being helpful that are more conducive to a one-person operation, she decided to switch gears.  While still donating to organizations that have relief missions, she is starting fresh to focus more on making jewelry and creating jewelry that women enjoy wearing.  Now, she is building on her line of handmade jewelry, with the thought of donating to hunger relieving charities as her jewelry receives recognition.

Amber Royal enjoys making jewelry that makes a real statement.   Think crystalline etchings combined with antique elegance.  As a new Baltimore artisan, she creates primarily one-of-a-kind jewelry using vintage and gemstone beads.  Like designs of yesteryear, each piece of jewelry is made to pique the interest of those that like innovation and fashion.  In essence, the jewelry designs are literally and figuratively multifaceted pieces of modern art that also happens to be wearable.
