Contemporary jewellery designers are embracing bold statement pieces and vibrant colors, while also incorporating a modern approach. The latest trend is to wear these eye-catching creations with a delicate touch, skillfully arranging and curating them with subtle diamond accents. This necklace, made out of Murano glass, features a unique idea of being able to grow a plant within it.
Don’t be afraid of color. Different colors are achieved through the use of specific gemstones like smokey quartz or green agate. Pearls are intentionally shaped in irregular forms to appreciate their natural beauty. Chunky chains have been made smaller, moving away from the 1980s style and embracing a minimalist approach influenced by the 1990s, but with a unique touch. If you have any items from that era, now is the perfect time to bring them back into your wardrobe. Statement pieces are captivating because of their unique metal formations, rather than their excessive size or weight. The desired effect is a sleek and polished finish. I bought these pieces in Bali and had this pearl chunky necklace made in Vietnam.
When choosing between gold and silver, gold has always been popular, but silver can be a better choice for certain skin tones. Experiment with mixing and matching metals to see which one compliments your skin the most, especially when it comes to earrings, as they can enhance and lift certain features. Silver looks great on very fair skin tones and blondes, but redheads should avoid rose gold as the colors may clash. Both lightly tanned and olive skin tones can pull off both metals, while darker and South East Asian complexions will make classic gold shine. I have olive skin and I find gold suits me the best.
Personalized jewellery has taken on a fresh twist with the introduction of name pendants made from solid gold. These contemporary pieces have become highly sought-after modern treasures, reflecting the sentimental value that personalized jewellery holds. Additionally, you can update heirloom jewellery by incorporating it into your everyday style. For example, one designer wears her grandmother’s ring on a gold chain, giving it a new lease on life. Certain pieces of jewelry can have a negative impact on your future earnings, so it’s important to find the appropriate person to recreate them.
One interesting idea is to melt down your grandmother’s wedding band to create a new ring. It’s important to find a balance between keeping the sentimental value of the heirloom intact and transforming it into a piece that you will enjoy wearing frequently. This provides an opportunity to be creative with your own jewelry collection. For example, a brooch could be repurposed as a hairpin and a pendant could be styled as a charming bracelet accessory.
If you are looking to keep your jewelry box timeless and modern, you have a range of options to choose from. Whether you decide to update your current pieces to make them more suitable for today’s trends or opt for something completely new, there are plenty of starting points to consider. I had this jade and black freshwater pearl necklace made in Vietnam.
Opt for a single finger to showcase a bold statement by stacking multiple rings. A fantastic combination is mixing and matching gold and silver, and you can even opt for a style that already incorporates both metals. By exploring your own collection, you can create stunning stacking rings and find inspiration for layering with their visual appeal. When shopping for rings, it’s important to consider going up a size to ensure a comfortable fit. Don’t hesitate to incorporate some color into your selection and ensure that your chosen ring size is not too tight.
Hoops are a popular choice for everyday wear, but why not add some variety to your collection? While they can still be worn on a daily basis, consider opting for a more unique option. Choose hoops with unconventional finishes and silhouettes that differentiate them from traditional hoops. These hoops are available in various sizes and come in a stylish gold and silver colorway, perfect for those who are willing to invest a bit more. I bought these gold-plated earrings in Venice.
Cord necklace chains are currently in fashion and can make a strong statement. A cord necklace is designed to be adjustable, eliminating the need for a knot at the back of your neck, and can be worn at any desired length. Certain gemstone pieces have a delicate and elegant appearance, such as this one that sits gracefully along the collarbone. This feature makes it effortless to layer with other necklaces for a stylish look. I bought this IRADJ MOINI vintage brooch in Tuscany for new beginnings and money-making options. Not too much bling. Diamonds and gold have always been a timeless pairing, but this year, they are not limited to special occasions. Tennis necklaces and bracelets have become a popular choice to effortlessly elevate a casual outfit. Simply adding a T-shirt can instantly enhance your look. Additionally, the rising popularity of zirconia allows you to enjoy the beauty of diamonds without having to pay diamond prices.
