Resin Jewellery: Reasons to Hop on the Popular ’90s Trend

You’re getting ready for a girl’s night out, so you slip into your favourite dress and heels. Yet, something is missing. You need some accessories to spice it up. However, your grandma’s pearls don’t cut it. Resin jewellery may be just what you need.

This jewellery style was a popular part of 90’s fashion, and now it’s back stronger than ever. So, makes resin jewellery so special? Let’s take a look.

What Is Resin Jewellery?

Jewellery made of resin is made with epoxy resin. This wearable art is a liquid when poured and turns into a solid when cooled. It’s a mixture of sugar, spice, and everything nice. This is why the possibilities with this handmade jewellery are endless. The following pieces are all popular ways to spice up your looks with colourful material.

Bangles

Does your wrist feel a bit naked at times? Like you want accessories but don’t know which? A few colourful resin bangles stacked on your wrist is a great way to jazz up any outfit for a girl’s night, a soccer game, or just to the grocery store. Bangles give your outfit the bang it needs to stand out.

Although resin is a type of plastic, their unique designs are what make them stand out from traditional plastic, gold, or silver bracelets. Resin-poured bangles can be made in a variety of colours, such as flamingo, moody blue, melon swirl, and melonite. They are dynamic colours with textures that twirl around to complement your arm.

The resin bangles come in all sorts of shapes – small, long, medium, oblong, and even wishbone-shaped. This is why you can stack as many as your arm can fit, even up to your elbow, should you desire to. In the end, you’re left with a cute look for a boho style that will get you raving compliments.

I know they can never replace a bracelet with letters spelling out mum or the world’s best grandma, but they can come in a close second. They are great to stack and add dimension to your style.

Be sure to pair resin bangles with a beaded or silver bracelet. They won’t clash but instead create a nicely balanced mixed-style effect.

Necklaces

This style of necklace can be a gold chain with a pendant made of parakeet, coral, and rose resin swirls. Your style can be imitated but never duplicated with this one-of-a-kind piece.

You can also go big with a resin boulder or bead necklace. This style is bold and beautiful, and it’s sure to make you feel confident and in control of your wardrobe. More colours like leaf, sand, and sky are true pops of colour to adorn your neck.

Let’s get more creative. Resin floral necklaces are the perfect subtle design for a special outfit or everyday wear. You can get one made with your favourite flower or one that has meaning to you. This is a great way to honour someone you love without using initials or a name. These floral necklaces will shimmer and shine with touches of gold and copper mixed in.

Rings

If your ring is made of resin, the bold pops of colours and hues of different lights that shine through will be just the right attention you want. Resin rings, much like bangles, are the absolute epitome of 90’s fashion. The bigger and chunkier the piece, the more you can show it off. But if you want more of a subtle strut, resin rings are made more slender these days.

Shapes such as tribal bands, band rings and slate rings vary in width to fit your preferences. These rings pair well with designer bangles in a complete set. No more do you have to try to guess which goes with each.

The rings are not exclusive to only one material. Resin and brass rings are a unique combination of elegance and strength. You can find styles with a brass back and coloured front or a coloured ring with a brass centre to give it some diversity. The styles are chic and will last for a long time in style as they already have.

Earrings

Resin earrings much like the other pieces of jewellery are not one size fits all. You can complement a slick up-do with horn-shaped or chain resin earrings. These come in bold colours and different shapes, so be sure to pick one that complements your face well.

Dewdrop and teardrop earrings can easily be used on a dressy night out for a special dinner or special occasion. You don’t have to sacrifice style for these important nights.

Which Colour Jewellery Is Best for Your Skin Tone?

Cooler skin tones look best with white gold and platinum. While warm skin tones ( or those who tan easily) shine best with yellow gold, copper and brass metals.

In addition to skin tone, hair colour is an important factor when picking accessories. For example, red hair complements well with deep greens and blues. Blonde hair pairs well with blue jewellery pieces. Brunettes pop out with deep purples and reds.

There is no one way to choose jewellery. It all depends on the aesthetic you’re going for and what makes you happy.

How to Maintain Resin Jewellery

This style of jewellery is delicate and beautiful but is easy to scratch. Over time without proper care, you may see the colour change and lose its lustre.

However all is not lost, you can care for your resin jewellery by keeping it in a closed container when not in use. Along with avoiding water from touching them. You can enjoy these for many years to come with proper care and storage.
