Oh, my God, for so much long time have we not talked about trends! But the new season will come very soon, and I still keep silent about new posts … Although, I believe there is some time for that. Therefore, catch your inspiration just today! The new 2018 season of jewelry trends is rich in both novelties and classics of the genre. But whatever jewelry item you choose, it will be different in luxury and monumentality. Fashion and jewelry trends of 2018 will probably become the most loved at least for me personally. After all, 2018 has collected all the most beautiful things together!
Really, I started making this post as the Jewelry Trends 2018 one, but then I felt in love with the safety pin jewelry designs of the new season… So that today I will tell you everything about it!
With the light hand of Hedi Slimane, the punk style returned to the podiums in 2015. Click To Tweet The first representatives of this subculture were turning different materials into fashion accessories and jewelry trends. So the safety pins from clothes moved to the lobes of ears and transformed into bracelets and pendants. And this is one of the most chic trends of 2018. Because you can fantasize about it in many different ways. And the atmosphere of punk culture will not disappear anywhere. Even if you add bows and lace – it will become the pastel goth. And if rhinestones – the glam rock.
This trendy pin jewelry items you can find at Sydney Evan Jewels store

Always on the forefront of the next big trend, Karmes’ creativity infuses her love of travel, the arts and culture with her California-chic design aesthetic to ensure a constantly evolving and desirable collection.”
For the first time safety pin jewelry trend riveted in 1994, when Elizabeth Hurley appeared at one of the film premieres in a dress with pins. It was really looking like not sewn, but chopped with pins. Oh my God, when I saw this, I immediately realized that I want the same! It’s just magical! And most importantly – this safety pin as one of fashion and jewelry trends returns in 2018. And I definitely have to repeat it. I totally feel that I should! And, furthermore, this dress has an entire article on Wikipedia! Here are few quotes from there:

Elizabeth Hurley wore a black Versace dress, often referred to as “THAT Dress”, when she accompanied Hugh Grant to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral in 1994. The dress was held together by several oversized gold safety pins. The dress is perhaps Versace’s best-known creation, and is considered by some to be largely responsible for launching Hurley onto the global media stage.”
In the early 1970s anarchy delivered to the UK by the likes of Malcolm McLaren, Vivienne Westwood and The Sex Pistols but fast forward more than forty years and the spirit of punk lives on. With it, the subculture employs a heavy dose of symbolism from the circle-A and the black flag but perhaps the most instantly familiar is that of the safety pin jewelry.” – from INDEPENDENT
Here are extremely rare Gianni Versace safety pin jewelry earrings from early 1990’s. Unfortunately, they are already out of stock. So this design is just for inspiration =) Furthermore, more vintage luxury jewelry you can find in Depuis 1924 International.
“Depuis 1924 International is the premier destination for the rarest vintage and highly collectible items. You would also find the rarest vintage sunglasses, handbags and other accessories from Gianni Versace, Hermes, Cartier and more designers.”
This simple, but totally wonderful reflection of the safety pin jewelry trend I have found in the Louison Rare+Fine jewelry store.
“The minimal design in 14k gold is hand fabricated to function just like the original. Just open gently as you would the real thing and slide in for easy wear.”
It’s really incredible! I have been looking for something very extraordinary in the context of this trend for a long time, because, frankly, all the unusual places where you can put a safety pin are not already actual. And just adding some rhinestones or beads – not for me. But this design completely captivated me! I’m in love and that’s for sure! And you can get some Marta Lugo jewels on Etsy!
“Marta designs and creates contemporary jewels by transforming daily objects into jewelry pieces and creating her own interpretation of things which surround her. So far, the materials Marta Lugo use the most are sterling silver and resin.”
By the way, in spite of the fact that it sounds a bit funny to me, the safety pin jewelry is an amulet from the evil eye. Although for some for you it can be a big plus. After all, every man to his own opinion. You can choose any pin-protector. The most important thing is to check that it is fixing well. This is very important, especially if such method of protection is for the child. Parents often choose a gold or a silver safety pin jewelry for their children. It is good to fasten it on the left side, near the heart. And, if it is possible, in a place that is visible to everyone. And not from inside of your clothes, as most people do. Glance of an envious person first of all falls on an interesting and attractive thing. And the main part of the negative energy immediately passes to a protective object – your safety pin jewelry. But at the same time, you should be attentive, since the pin can be unfastened suddenly, lost or mysteriously broken. This means that the protection is working. And now you need to get a new pin.
Well, there is no list of jewelry trends without my favorite Vivienne Westwood. Yes, even though I have long been out of adolescence, which I was accompanied by a boundless adoration for the punk culture, I am still into this style. And especially if it is indisputably talented Westwood!
“Designed for the elegant rebel; Vivienne Westwood presents her stunning Jordan Collection, which effortlessly fuses 1950’s glamour with iconic Punk influences. Strung along a glistening circle chain, Westwood’s Orb embossed pearl has been pierced with a golden safety pin jewelry pendant.”
And, by the way, I have found a great post about Safety Pin and Pearl Jewellery tutorial. It will be totally interesting for jewelers-beginners and it is kind of Vivienne Westwood Jordan style!
I have found all of this wonderful stuff in NET-A-PORTER online store.
“The perfect balance of off-kilter and elegant, safety pin jewelry earrings are a Loren Stewart signature.
Loren Stewart’s earring is shaped to resemble a safety pin. Though they’re traditionally associated with punk culture, this version is so delicate and elegant. Crafted from 14-karat gold, it’s stacked with a row of freshwater pearls. Safety pin-style earrings were seen on several Fall ’17 runways. However we think Balenciaga’s version is one of the coolest. Made in Italy from silver-tone metal, they have an oversized shape and looped ring at the base.”

And for the dessert! When for the first time I saw safety pin jewelry by Ami Masamitsu, I immediately thought, “This is it!” That’s what all lovers of minimalism and conceptuality are looking for. I immediately imagined how beautiful these jewelry pieces looked with an unusual beach image. High waist swimsuit pants with mesh inserts, fitness bra, bare feet, snow-white sand, azure sea and the runner-girls. Perky running along the half-empty, a little spoiled by the storm beach. That’s the kind of advertising campaign that arose in my head!
“Ami Masamitsu is a London-based designer. She has a strong interest in the elements that people do not pay attention to. Ones that usually play background roles in life. Her aim is to discover beauty hidden in the shadows and bring it into the light.”
