Gold jewelry has been all the rage for quite some time now. From the classic golden hoops to the trendy gold chain layers, yellow has been the go-to for adornment in recent years. However, are we beginning to see a shift to silver?
Fashion trends, if nothing else, are spurred by the constant pursuit of freshness. For the past few years, no one could deny the popularity of warm-toned gold pieces. With the Y2K revival, nostalgic accessory styles have cycled back to the front page. Body jewelry, particularly waist chains, has come full circle, now seen styled with low-waisted jeans and chunky gold hoops for the ultimate throwback look.

Zendaya, in her red carpet look for the premiere of “Dune,” was seen sporting a stunning 93-carat emerald silver Bulgari necklace that became the center of attention.

I think metallic needs to come back — silver in particular.”
Silver is not just in for jewelry; metallic clothing pieces are also on the rise. Beyoncé, for a recent courtside date night with Jay-Z, sported a silver metallic David Koma jacket that had her sparkling from all angles. Paired with piles of silver chains and rings from ManLuu and Jil Sander, Beyoncé reminded us that she…
