There’s no better way to freshen up your wardrobe with some of today’s hottest jewelry trends from our top designers. Whatever your style, there’s something for everyone at Long’s!

Our buyers tell you why they’re loving these trends, giving you the scoop on how to liven up your layering game or why you should add some new statement pieces to your jewelry collection for the upcoming year.

Paper Clip Links

The chain game is strong! Layering a paper clip link goes a long way toward showing you’re steady with the latest looks. Wear paper clip links alone, featuring a pendant, or mix in with other necklaces like pearls or gemstone beads. You can make this look all your own!

One of Long's buyers, Erin L.,  had this to say about paperclip jewelry, “Today’s paper clip chains are a slight nod to 80’s fashion and industrial design often seen in jewelry. They’re a simple design that packs a bold statement and are a must-have in any size!” 

Meaningful Medallions

Pack symbolism into your everyday style with a medallion charm or statement pendant. Whether you’re looking for a lucky charm, commemorative piece, or a talisman that wards off evil, meaningful medallions are a great way to merge personal style with impactful meaning.

A buyer at Long's, Sue M. says “I love the idea of giving a gift that has special significance to the wearer. Using charms, medallions, color or talismans is a wonderful way to create a truly personalized gift.” 

Stacks & Layers

You have a style of your own, so let it shine through with your signature stack! Experiment with ring stacks, bracelets, or even layers of necklaces -- whatever speaks to your sense of style. Mix in the latest options to change up your look or add just the right hint of color, texture, or shape.

Erin L., a Long's buyer, has this to say when it comes to stacking, “Stacking your jewelry is a great way to showcase your unique personality and wear more jewelry pieces at the same time. It is also an excuse to buy that new necklace, bracelet, or earring to add to your stack!”

Multiple Ear Piercings

Sonja S., one of Long's buyers states “There is so much versatility when it comes to earrings in general, and even more so when you have multiple piercings. It allows you to show your personal style and individuality in such a fun way!”
