Holiday Wreaths
Jewelry Trends


One of the results of the popularity of the circle pendant is growing interest in other abstract geometric shapes like ovals and squares. But new this season is a fresh take on the circle pendant: the wreath. Like holiday wreaths, they often have leaves or flowers in a circular pattern. Instead of lights, they are dotted with diamonds. Some are literal and others more abstract, more like modern twig wreaths than the floral or foliage variety. Some have the recognizable signature style of a designer. All of these adorned wreath pendants, and even a few wreath earrings, are more individual and personalized than the plain circle. And the wreath’s symbolic association with the holidays and with victory adds more meanings to the circle’s endless loop. It should make wreaths a popular holiday jewelry option as well. — Cheryl Kremkow
