1. Puka Shell Jewelry
Talking about 90s fashion jewelry and not mentioning puka shell would be insane. A trend which cannot be forgotten by a 90s kid. Shell jewelry is basically made from puka beads and shells. It was also famous as a 90s men’s jewelry trend. If your boyfriend is from the 90s and did not own a puka shell necklace at that time, sure bet he’s never been trendy at all! This 90s trend made a comeback on the runways in Prada Fall Winter 2017 collection. Puka shell was perf for vacations and pool parties, and was worn casually with street style, too.
2. 90s Choker
The trend of the 90s jewelry that is back with a bang this year is chokers. Chokers have been in the spotlight for a past few years now and I’m glad that they’re back! Tattoo chokers, chokers with a tiny pendant (like the smiley face), gothic, velvet, satin ribbon chokers made waves in that era. Celebrities like Lisa Kudrow, Kate Moss, Drew Barrymore perfectly rocked 90s choker necklace.
3. 90s Hoop Earrings
Large bold hoops were very popular in the 90s. When you ran out of ideas on what earrings to put on, hoops come to the rescue. Hoop earrings looked classy and were embraced by high-fashion houses, celebrities and 90s supermodelsalike. Large silver hoops were the 90s fashion jewelry trends. They are still trendy and one of my personal favorites. Apart from hoop earrings, the 90s had large studs and drop & dangle earrings.
4. 90s Necklace
I grew up seeing the 90s necklaces as my mom was fond of jewelry and I admired the way she wore them. 90s necklaces included long chain necklaces, multilayered pearl necklaces, collar necklaces and leather chain necklaces. 90s charm necklaces were also popular in the decade! A 90s wardrobe would have been incomplete without the large pearl necklaces as they were quite famous. Talking of this reminds me of a picture with my mom where she wore a pink saree and layered pearl collar necklace with matching drop earrings and pearl bracelet. Thanks Shilpa for taking me down memory lane!
5. Bracelets from the 90s
Accessories really make an outfit and who knows that better than a 90s kid! As much as simple dainty bracelets are the thing now, beaded bracelets were quite popular then. Jelly bracelets, slap bracelets, letter beaded ones and tattoo bracelets were trending in the 90s. Slap bracelets were my favorites. They were more of a toy than a piece of jewelry!
6. 90s Hip Hop Jewelry
From chunky chain link necklaces to oversized studs, 90s hip-hop fashion was woah! The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of hip-hop fashion is loud. Not only were the outfits bold but also their jewelry. Long multi-layered necklaces, stacked bracelets, and quirky pieces of jewelry were worn by the 90s hip-hop stars. I always wondered if it’s difficult for them to perform with such huge and heavy pieces of jewelry. Maybe that’s where they get the energy to perform!
