With the exception of hand-beaded chains for your mask, jewelry has been overlooked for the larger part of 2020. Despite this, designers sent a mix of gorgeous styles down the runway for the new spring season, ranging from casual jewelry to black-tie baubles. We saw beach beads at Etro and Versace, show-stopping XL earrings at Dolce & Gabbana and Ulla Johnson, and so much more. Once again, designers tried to sell us on mini bags as necklaces, but the question remains: Are we buying it? You decide. Below, five trends from our four favorite fashion cities to invest in now.
