Ten’s a Trend: Marble Madness

Leandra Medine | May 7, 2015

It’s the thing for spring

Trends are funny in that they seem to stack like building blocks. One informs the next which informs the next and if you follow them closely enough, you can almost always achieve some version of a distinct narrative with a start point, a conflict, a solution and then ultimately, an end.

When the bedazzled bib necklaces of yore became loose fine chains that did not require the kind of upper body strength a breast plate does and could be worn without much thought — forever if you wanted to, the question of what happens to chunky jewelry next was presented. Did the migration from big to small mean that no one wanted to make a statement anymore?

Of course not. This is fashion, people. What are we if not a group of overzealous expressionists fighting to get the last word in? It just meant we were ready for new chunk; for a frontier that mirrored something more pared down or scaled back; the excess-lover’s own version of normcore, if you will.

Enter the marble jewelry movement, which satisfied one’s hankering for a statement piece but did it without calling to mind descriptive words like “bauble.” Early perpetrators of the trend include Chloé, Céline and Roxanne Assoulin for Rosie Assoulin, but as recently as this past season, Stella McCartney and Eddie Borgo have signed on, too. The whole thing feels very Nordic. Like a clean, domestic living space designed in good, sparse taste. Give it a try then play a game of who wore it best, vetting yourself against the nearest kitchen counter top. I am sure you will win.

Psst. Marble jewelry will look really cool with your summer wedding outfit

    I once stuck a marble up my nose because I AM fashión. No but really this jewelry is really striking my fancy (don’t know why i said that). and those stella shoes are the bees knees. what? who am i today?

    As usual, fashion and interior design trends align!! Neoclassical marble specimen tables are really hot now. From 1750 to 1830 or so, Brits and Americans traveled to Italy where they collected marble “specimens” to inlay into beautiful tabletops 🙂

    I almost bought a marble phone cover the other day. ARE YOU SEARCHING MY BROWSING HISTORY?!

    Also, those Dior earrings just became infinitely more lustable.

      did you come across the one from Mikol? They seem to be the only ones with real marble. Other stuff is all printed that i came across

  • Julie Meowmeows

    I’ve always adored natural stone in jewelry/accessories, always will.

  • Mmmmm. Meh. I like my jewellery to be sparkly. I’ll side with the magpies and sit this trend out… it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that bling.

    our family farm shares acreage with an old abandoned marble quarry so I feel particularly bonded to this trend and in the words of the father: “don’t go there at night or the witch will get you.”
    (I don’t think this warning applies to the wearing of marble, though, so by all means DO go there at night)

  • As an amateur curator of these gems, I found this post to be absolutely marbleous.

    Not sure how no one has mentioned the Kardashian confessionals are backed with a fake marble background yet. YES, that’s what I’m up to on my Saturday night : D

    How come no marble phone cases? those are pretty stylish. I saw them on http://www.mikolmarmi.com

  • I also posted a post about the marble trend recently 🙂
    Been loving the trend very much ! You can apply the marble trend by yourself at home. I did it to my phone case.
