Seven hot jewellery trends to consider this Winter. Chances are you're already working several of them - but should you fancy upping the ante and working a few twists into your personal look book, then friends, here are metallic answers to those dreams......
We've blogged on this trend before and it's continued to evolve into a rampant blaze of opportunity for individual expression. All of a sudden we're considering double anti tragus or conch piercings, maybe a Daith ring (this last one can take up to 9 months to heal by the way - so be warned). Obviously the more piercings you have the more combinations are possible but even two on one ear allows for unexpected and lustworthy pairings like these droplet threader and studs.
There's some heavy weight celebrity endorsement of this jewellery trend; Zoe Kravitz, Jennifer Laurence and Scarlett Johanssen are giving a strong eargame with black diamonds and huggies on their curated ears.
The NEW season ear cuff is refined and dazzling, offering pain free options for creating the optimal #earparty. Our range of plain, pearl, opal and crystal cuffs are indistiguishable from real conch piercings and can be stacked together.
The Huggie hoop still reigns as Empress in the curated ear and her handmaidens are teeny tiny studs. We love that you can sleep in these comfortably and wake up accessorised! These sets in black onyx, sparkling crystal, turquoise and opal allow for easily co-ordinated options.
But there are NO RULES here, the aesthetic can be as punchy or delicate as you wish. More and more is more!
(I'll get back to you on whether my daith piercing cures migraines, when it finally heals!)
Forget crossing your fingers as you walk under ladders just fill your jewellery box with talismanic adornment to ward off evil.
St Christopher pendants, Wishbones, Lion pendants and Crying eyes studs are fashion fierce right now. Revel in supernatural protection AND fancy pants fashion points.
3.Structural/ Architecturally inspired Earrings
Earrings are getting cleverer; they twist, interlink and inhabit the ear at surprising intervals. Like dark matter these earrings are asking big questions*; how exactly is it suspended so? Do the laws of physics need to be rewritten? Experiment with asymmetry and chained double studs for quantum level style.
4.Pearls for Gurrrls
Not a twin set in sight with the new pearl aesthetic. This year we've loved the pearl cuffs at Chloe, Bella Hadid's pearl dotted DM boots and Rihanna's jaw dropping pearly Pope Outfit at the Met ball in May (do google it - it's a treat). East London Women's wear brand Mother of Pearl strutted studded collars, cuffs and bags with mega pearls down the London Fashion Week catwalk ,and Burberry's models sported Pat Butcher pearl chandeliers teamed with tartan puffa longcoats.
Be the girl in a pearl earring (or bag, bracelet, ring)
Our Modern Pearl collection gives you options from the delicate seed pearl stud to the stunning Venus Pearl hoop and chunky open ring. Try a bit of pearl - and the world's your oyster!
5.Rainbows : Accessorise in glorious technicolour
Coloured gems add much needed lustre to this grey world. A rainbow studded necklace, ring or earring will co-ordinate with prints/florals/tartans/denims/ or monochromes. If you're attempting the colour blocking trend de la saison (red jumper, orange skirt, blue boots for example?) a dash of rainbow jewellery can pull together a potentially 'dressed in the dark' look to heights of considered coordination.
More compellingly this is a trend that signals positivity, inclusitivity and the full spectrum of love. And who doesn't love love?
6.Chunky Chains/ Layered Necklaces
We've experimented for a while now with the pretty layering of fine chains, but we confess to experiencing hair tangling and a bit of fluster taking several fine chains off at the end of 'sociable' nights out.
Layering has moved from ethereal looks to a more eclectic mix of long pendants teamed with a fiercer, chunkier chain or choker - and on a practical level this is working for us. Much less tangling. This combination flatters a higher winter neckline too. Our Oval link choker (sported here by the stunning @alicecatherine) is a versatile piece and can also be styled as a bracelet, and looks great with a longer charm like the lightning necklace.
which leads us neatly onto :
Chic with your blazer or leather jacket rolled a bit up the arm. We love the jangle,and the nod to 1980's glam. Choose from the celestially and sparkly, our gothic skull bangles with crystal eyes and motivational word arm candy.
For those of us who remember the 80's, this trend is an irresistable revisit of our 80's Madonna bangle looks, and trips to Dorothy Perkins for a set of 20. Mix in with some vintage acetate bangles for a chunkier profile.
That's the lucky 7!
