Tribal inspired jewelry is one of the hottest jewelry trends this season. These Inca patterns and bold chunky pieces are not just a part of exotic jungles, but are one of the major runway trends in the recent years. Influenced by the cultural and religious symbols of various African, South American, Asian and Egyptian tribes, tribal jewelry includes chokers, statement necklaces, large rings, earrings, nose pieces, bangles, anklets, bracelets, belts and head pieces, all created by natural material like ivory, resin, metal, hair, gemstones, feathers, shells, wood, etc.
With big, bold shapes etched in tribal etchings and stampings in burnished gold and wood, these statement pieces come in earthy tones, and splashy colors like dark reds and blues. The chunky tribal jewelry falls into variety of styles and are a great way of adding oomph to any plain ensemble.
The tribal patterns have also influenced our A-list celebrities. It is certainly the natural glam of these statement pieces that keeps the 75,000 years old ethnic trend in vogue. Rihana, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton have flaunted this slightly savage look with bold tribal jewelry. This trend has made its way into the collections of designers like John Galliano, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg.
Seen everywhere this season, don’t be afraid to indulge in these bold, over the top jewels!
