Mineral Jewelry Spotlight: An Earthy Trend for Summer 2017
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!
Rodeo Chic Style Guide: Jewelry and Accessory Recommendations
For many Western Jewelry and style enthusiasts, a Rodeo is an ideal opportunity for them to showcase their love of this exceptional fashion trend while feeling excited to be a part of something akin to modern Cowboy entertainment! And while Western, Southwestern, Rodeo, and “Cowboy” style trends come and go as do all others, some key staples are perfect for incorporating into your wardrobe if you’re just starting to attend Rodeos as someone that loves this popular trend of jewelry, fashion, and lifestyle!
At West Coast Cowgirl, we are committed to providing high quality, incredibly stylish jewelry and accessories that are “Rodeo Chic” and ready-to-wear to events with a Cowboy/Cowgirl theme, Rodeos, and other Western-style parties, and we hope the following ideas and suggestions will have you excited about your upcoming events! Just grab a pair of jeans, a huge, silver belt buckle, and a fun, Western-style shirt and pair them with any of the following suggestions for a polished, “Rodeo Chic” look!
A Killer Cowgirl Hat
It’s no wonder that “Rodeo Chic” incorporates countless Cowgirl Hat designs, making these accessories a fun, highly personal, fundamental piece of any Rodeo outfit! A killer hat sets your tastes apart, and can quickly become a hallmark piece of your Rodeo wardrobe. Let your personality shine, and don’t be afraid to use bold colors and fabric choices! For example, our Cowgirl Pride Hat is available in Electric Blue and Pink in addition to the more traditional Black, Camel, and Coffee color choices. Similarly, our popular Coco Lady Felt Hat has a Red color option on top of black and khaki, and the felt material with the beaded brim is memorable and stylish. It’s no wonder that so many “Rodeo Chic” fans end up with a whole wardrobe of cowgirl hats, considering how fun and versatile they are!
The Fringe Effect
Without a doubt, “fringe” details are an integral part of Cowgirl fashion, and they are extremely fun and versatile for Rodeo events. A tiny amount goes a long way – consider pairing a garment or purse, such as our stunning Gabriel Handbag – with a simple base outfit, such as jeans and a white Western snap shirt, plus some fun Cowboy boots or hat. If your intended outfit or wardrobe is already completed and you want a more understated, jewelry piece to compliment your look, our Tawni Earrings incorporate the fringe theme without being over-saturated. These pebble stone earrings combine metal with dangling suede for an eye-catching, lovely design that softly moves when you walk, and they can be blended with other fringe elements as well without over-saturating your style!
Earthy Gemstone Details and Silver Styles
While Cowboy boots and hats are all the rage in Rodeo Chic fashion, there’s no question that jewelry choices featuring agate, turquoise, and other earthy, Southwestern-style gemstones are crucial to this fashion trend. Our Diego Necklace is the perfect example, featuring a bold style that combines agate and turquoise beads for a charming effect, with a large slice of natural agate for its eye-catching pendant! Alternatively, if you’d like a silver jewelry set that’s ideal for any “Rodeo Chic” outfit, our new arrival Acadia Choker Jewelry Set combines the super on-trend Choker necklace style with a pair of matching earrings. With rhinestone details and either periwinkle or cardinal stone accent colors, this set is sure to be a go-to favorite for our Rodeo-loving customers!
