While we love the end of the year lists that name the best books, movies, images and cultural moments of the year past, what gets us really excited are those lists that look ahead to the trends and ideas that will be guiding us in the year to come. And when it comes to jewelry, the top trends to watch are sublime. From 70's inspired looks to bold metals, the year in jewelry seems like it will be very fresh indeed.

Our Favorite Jewelry Trends for 2015

1. Asymmetrical Lobes: From mismatched earrings to one ear adornment, there's no reason you have to treat your ears equally. It really is okay to make the other ear extremely jealous.
