Over the years, our fashion ambassadors have done plenty of research to see what fashion jewelry gets the most accolades around the United States. Interestingly enough, what may be chic in Chicago may not be stylish in San Francisco, which is why they recently traveled the country to see what Chic24Hours jewelry would appeal to fashionistas from coast to coast.

What Type of Jewelry Is Most Popular in Your Part of the Country?
BY LEAH MELBY CLINTON MAY 20, 2015
We talk a lot about national (and international) trends, but what about the more minute, localized ones? Different zip codes in the U.S. adopt their own uniforms, and it’s totally obvious when you take a stroll around the local mall. Since flying city to city would take a while (and is tough on the budget), we took luxury consignment site The Real Real up on an offer to peek at its shopping numbers, broken down by big American markets.
Judging by shoppers in areas like Chicago, this is a part of the country that really likes things simple, classic, and sophisticated. Think statement studs and bracelets you can still wear every day, plus watches that add a final bit of polish.

Typically quick to endorse trends, the Northeastern shopper fills her e-cart with both boundary-pushing, bold numbers and longtime classics. It speaks to a switch-it-up sensibility, by which ladies wear a conversation-starter one day and bust out chic basics the next.

Flashy ladies in SoCal love glamour, and it shows in the jewelry they regularly snap up. When you study the top three sellers, it’s also clear that the Rachel Zoe effect is still in play, with everyday items accented by long necklaces that evoke a modern boho feel.

The Pacific Northwest
The Real Real team described its shoppers in San Francisco and beyond as loving “subtle luxury,” and it’s easy to see why. An untrained eye might not notice anything special about the thin necklaces and bracelets they pull on, but fashionphiles will see little tweaks that make the outfit.

Residents of states like Texas tend to be traditionalists when it comes to accessorizing, snapping up classics that will fit just as well in jewelry boxes decades in the future. Instead of necklaces and earrings done in of-the-moment shades or accents (like neon gems or fringed suede), they’re all about classic diamonds.
