Anyone who knows me well will not be surprised to hear that tropical jewelry sits at the intersection of everything I love about fashion. The tropical print revival has long been one of my favorite trends, as its roots in “ugly” fashion run deep. Call me ascetic, but few things sound more fun than digging up some fascinating, by-all-contemporary-definitions ugly piece of clothing and rendering it trendy, chic, covetable. Nothing—not even a shirt embraced only by frat bros and dads on vacation—can trump creative styling. Tropical prints are fun, and unexpected, and challenging. And statement jewelry is delightfully campy no matter what form it’s taking. 2019’s tropical jewelry trend, then, is a marriage of two lovely, lovely things.

Summer 2019 has, by all measures, really only just begun—but it’s already seen an array of statement jewelry trends enter the zeitgeist. Fruit jewelry has shown us our taste buds and our taste in clothing have more in common than we’d think. Last year’s shell jewelry trend is back and perhaps even more eye-catching than ever. And the somewhat recent friendship bracelet trend has reminded us all of the importance of wearing our hearts on our sleeves (or really, on our wrists). Tropical jewelry is joining a vast and varied cast of statement-making players—all of which are sitting idly by on digital shelves, just waiting to add a healthy dose of personality (and a trendy dose of camp) to your accessories arsenal.

Though some of this season’s other jewelry trends are limited in terms of form (friendship bracelets, for instance), tropical jewelry spans genres. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a necklace person, or an earrings person, or a whatever person—you’re sure to find a trendy piece that’ll work for you (though it bears mentioning that tropical earrings are particularly abundant). So what are you waiting for? I’m serving you a veritable plethora of ways to keep your love of the tropics close to heart and mind at all times—all you have to do is scroll down.
