There are two major product lines that we LOVE to focus on at The Link, especially for the ladies! In honor of Valentine’s Day, we are focusing on Spring 2019 trends in fashion jewelry and handbags.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, Spring and Summer 2019 jewelry trends, in contrast to the dainty necklaces we’ve seen in season’s past, are “playful and unapologetically bold!” Harper’s goes on to include categories of jewelry trends, including: blingy crystal (think crystal drop earrings), modern pearls (hoop earrings with pearl drops), 80’s hearts (heart-shaped earrings or large statement necklaces with a heart pendant), and “By the Sea” (jewelry accented with seashells).
When it comes to Coastal Jewelry, Periwinkle is just the ticket! Their extensive line of seashell laden pieces fits right in with the “By the Sea” trend. But, what you may not realize is how many other styles they have. Periwinkle has jewelry to suit any season, mood, or personality! Fitting in with the trends mentioned above are the Tri-Tone Hearts.

Periwinkle also has a fantastic selection of pearl jewelry, which connects with the “modern pearls” trend. One cute example are the Rose Gold Pearl Drops. They look strikingly similar to the jewelry shown in the Harper’s article, only with a much more affordable price point!
