Trends come and go, and style evolves. It's important to have pieces of jewelry that are timeless and look chic despite ever-changing fashions ~ Karen Elson

A couple of months ago, my family and I moved into a new house, and the whole process left me feeling overwhelmed by all my stuff! I used this new opportunity to really declutter and purge and only keep items that bring me joy. Now I am much more selective about the items that I bring into my home; I want to make sure that the things I buy don’t make me feel overwhelmed or cluttered. And the same concept rings true with the items I buy to put on my body: my clothing and jewelry. I want my outfit and accessory choices to bring me joy too!

I can’t tell you the number of times I have purchased a cheap, chunky piece of jewelry or a trendy outfit that I wore once, but then that item sat in a heap of many other necklaces, or in the back of my closet. These items weren’t bringing me joy; in fact, they were weighing me down.

Jewelry trends come and go just as other trends do. And, while we love a good trend, we like to put our own Bird’s Tail spin on it, carefully designing pieces that are meaningful and will transcend time. We like to create jewelry that helps women feel strong, confident, and sexy regardless of the trends.

Find joy in these jewelry trends that never go out of style:

classic but never boring

When choosing classic jewelry, it’s all about curating a collection. Channel Marie Kondo and ask yourself “does it spark joy?”. Go through your existing jewelry and decide if the pieces you have bring you happiness. Get rid of those that don’t and decide which pieces you’d love to add to your collection.

Realize that less is more and choose quality over quantity. Investing in quality pieces of jewelry does not mean that they have to be a high price point. Invest in pieces that you can wear every day and for days…even years to come.


Meaningful + inspirational

When purchasing jewelry, we want to spend our dollars on meaningful pieces. Some of these pieces may be symbolic of a significant event or person in our lives. Some of these pieces might evoke certain feelings or qualities in ourselves that we wish to cultivate.

No matter what, our jewelry should make us FEEL something. It should make us feel strong, beautiful and confident!


a bit edgy…clean, modern, lines

There is something so simple and beautiful about modern, clean lines in a home; they signify simplicity and minimalism. We like to think that modern, minimalist jewelry can do the same thing for an outfit.

Geometric jewelry is unfussy and never goes out of style. The sharp angles and clean shapes can make us feel like kind of a bad-ass, right? A little tough and edgy?!


a pop of color

If you are like me, your wardrobe is filled with neutrals. I don’t roam in the land of color too often. However, I think of jewelry like I do an accent pillow - a really simple way to add a pop of color and a bit of interest to an otherwise neutral pallet.

Whether they’re in earrings, a necklace or a bracelet, colorful gemstones offer an easy way to bring life to any outfit.

Bottom Line:

  • Trends can be (and we think should be!) timeless. Purchase pieces that will go with many different outfits and that can transition from day to night and from one season to the next.

  • Less is more. Spend your money on a few, quality pieces instead of a bunch of pieces that will end up in a pile in a drawer.

  • Jewelry should be special. Pick pieces that bring you joy and leave you feeling beautiful, strong and confident.
