One if the fastest growing trend for Summer 2017 is what designers and stylists have dubbed “Mineral Jewelry.” These pieces feature large, eye-catching examples of raw, earthy materials, such as a pendant made of agate or turquoise. West Coast Cowgirl’s assortment of jewelry choices that focus on these stunning, natural features make it an excellent blend for this style in particular. In fact, Western and Rodeo Chic jewelry is quickly dominating this trend because of its focus on these rugged but sophisticated styles. We hope that the following suggestions inspire you to incorporate Mineral Jewelry into your wardrobe, and that one of our Rodeo-worthy pieces might speak to you as the perfect addition to your jewelry collection!
Our Diego Necklace is a splendid example of the Mineral Jewelry trend, and a very popular piece of our collection. This exquisite piece features agate and turquoise beads which complement the large, statement-piece pendant of natural agate! The slice of agate varies in color, shape, and size, but the approximate measurement is 33.5” with the beaded necklace.
West Coast Cowgirl’s Outlaw Necklace is another great example of a jewelry choice that blends multiple trends together in one stunning, bold Summer 2017 style! Functioning both as a statement piece thanks to its large stones and eye-catching beadwork, the Outlaw Necklace’s turquoise resin stones also capture the charm of the Mineral Jewelry theme. With wood and silver-plated beads as well, this lovely necklace is chunky, earthy, and sure to be a favorite this summer!
Mineral Jewelry doesn’t need to be a bold, statement jewelry design to fit in with the trend. For example, our Savanna Necklace is an understated, delicate, feminine style that still utilizes this hot trend via a pop of color thanks to a turquoise center bead. Paired with delicate silver accents and a sophisticated chain necklace that’s 50-60cm long, this piece will compliment any outfit and wardrobe.
If necklaces aren’t your jewelry style of choice, may we recommend a bracelet alternative, such as our Pearls Dream Bracelet? The large turquoise stone beads are a great example of versatile Mineral Jewelry features, and the freshwater pearl accents add the pearl trend that’s been huge in 2017. With silver accents and a 17-19cm adjustable length this bracelet is a surefire way to be trendy and playful with your jewelry choices all summer long!
We hope that these selections have given you some ideas for how to incorporate Mineral Jewelry into your wardrobe! If you’re looking for additional ideas and inspirations a local gem and mineral show can be an excellent showcase of earthy, natural-stone jewelry and accessories. These styles combine beautifully with Western and Rodeo Chic looks, and will carry you through Summer 2017 into the fall season as well!
