Reinventing the Medallion

Think “medallion” and you might get a flashback to the ‘70s, when groovy bell-bottoms, platform shoes and hot pants were all the rage. Today’s medallion borrows the familiar shape and adds a decorative twist. The modern update is one of this year’s  most coveted accessories, sure to become a staple among trendsetters from coast to coast.Medallion diamond

Since the chandelier, there hasn’t been a truly dominant earring silhouette. The medallion earring is an exciting new option that sprung from the passion for decorated hoops. The center space has been filled in with gemstones, arabesque shapes and openwork designs. With all that glamour to show, the hoop has been cleverly turned forward, so all the detailing faces the admirer. Celebrities and fashion insiders are seen pairing these swingy spheres with long ornate chains holding unique pendants.

Medallions are in sync with the current popularity of large circular jewelry, such as mandalas. Loosely translated to mean “circle” in Sanskrit, a mandala is far more than a simple circular shape. It represents wholeness, and reminds us of our relation to the infinite. They are gorgeous and chic worn long, short, or layered. Designers with popular medallion and mandala pendants have been adding matching earrings to their lines. They assert their own interpretations of the style, concentrating on gorgeous textures to complement every face shape and hair style.

Find circular, oval, roundel and oblong shapes in dangle, drop and fringe styles. The most unique and innovative pieces are expressed in textured sterling silver or 18-karat gold – accented with cultured pearls, mother of pearl, diamond pavé or platinum.






Whether it’s a forward-facing hoop with intricate center detailing or a pendant turned earring, the reinvented medallion is a must-have for the holidays and beyond.
