Trend #4 – Agates And Gemstones
We’ve advanced a lot when it comes to technology, so much so that we crave a sense of purity and simplicity. The connection we felt with Mother Nature is long lost but that’ll no longer be the case because 2022 is going to change that for us. The coming year is going to be all about eyewear featuring earthly elements such as agates, gemstones, rocks, and minerals. This raw connection to Mother Earth will allow people to find a deeper meaning in the products they wear, which we’re all about.
