Holiday 2020 Jewelry Gift Trends
Posted on November 17 2020
Unforgettable jewelry is always a great choice for a women's holiday gift, and we're here to make the definitive guide on hot trends for 2020 holiday gifts (and beyond)! Looking for a little help in choosing the perfect piece of fine jewelry for the one you love? Look no further.
IN: Dainty & Durable
A piece of fine jewelry that lasts a lifetime with minimal upkeep? PLUS a piece that she will wear everyday? Yes, please! From sweats to jeans and dresses, a hint of shine from dainty fine jewelry is the new hot trend for 2020 - and beyond. It's not about diamond necklaces she will wear a handful of times, but well-built, high-quality jewelry she will love to wear every single day while thinking of you. Skaska has been on the forefront of this trend - we even created a proprietary 10k gold alloy that retains the rich hues of 18k gold while being significantly easier to care for. Dainty and durable fine jewelry is the ultimate 2020 and 2021 trend.
Looking for solid gold jewelry that won't break the bank? Our 10k Capsule Collection is here to make all of your wildest dreams come true.
OUT: Green Fingers
Repeat after me: I say no to gold plated and gold filled jewelry. With enough scuffs and scratches, the plating will fail and the alloy underneath the gold will cause fingers will turn green or cause an allergic reaction. Not a good gift. Remember: gold plated jewelry is a mix of metals, like copper and silver, topped with at least 0.5 microns (a micron is one millionth of a meter) of gold. It won't last for a lifetime, especially with everyday wear. All Skaska jewelry is 10k, 14k, or 18k solid gold, so you can be sure the color will never wear off and it can be enjoyed forever.
IN: Curated Earrings
The days of choosing one set of earrings for day and another for night are far behind us. Now it's all about the ear stack and multi-wear earrings. Dainty gold earrings are the perfect choice - small enough to mix and match, and wear any way she wants! Don't even get us started on true mix-and-match earrings, like our solid gold Hoops + Bijoux sets. A handful of delicate earrings combine to make tens of unique combinations for any style.
OUT: Questionable Diamonds
It's pretty safe to say that blood diamonds have been out for a while, but inhumane working conditions and child labor is still a problem for large jewelry manufacturers. Does anyone really want to wear a ring mined by child slaves? No. 2020 has undoubtedly been the year for new, independent designers that focus on ethical diamonds to shine, and we couldn't be happier! An what's better than a luxurious purchase you and the recipient can feel great about? Everyone wins when ethical mines that support fair pay and good working conditions are rewarded. 100% of the diamonds and precious stones used in Skaska designs are tracked from mine to our Dallas workshop, and they are 100% conflict-free.
