The power of a selfie! Instagram is becoming more and more THE place people go to look for inspiration. Our Instagram feeds are filled by the minute with hundreds, when not thousands, of fantastic pictures of cool people, styled with great clothes and gorgeous jewellery, sometimes from new brands that will set trends.
For jewellery lovers, the App is paradise! The selfies Instagram celebrities take are the perfect frame for earrings and necklaces, so it’s no coincidence that the current jewellery trends are statement earrings and layering of gold chains with charms. Also, the way the jewellery is worn in the Instagram pics, when well-styled, will influence new trends. Take, for instance, the current trend of wearing only one earring or mix&matched earrings, that’s emerged from Instagram and overtook the jewellery market, which is now offering single earrings to the consumer.
Instagram is also the perfect showroom for thousands of jewellery collectors and designers who can share there their creations with the world. Among so many, here are the 7 jewellery Instagrams we’re in love with this week, to help you choose your next pieces, one for each day of your week.
