Jewellery, like must other consumer goods, will usually go through trends and phases. These trends often change quickly which makes them perfectly suited to lower cost costume jewellery.
There are several well known brands within the industry who have all applied their own unique touches and designs to the jewellery they offer. Here we’ll take you through these trends as well as note which designers are the ones to keep an eye out for.
The humble pendant is as popular as it always has been but designers are giving them far more attention this time round. Pendants can be made from any material of your choice including regular metals such as copper and stainless steel to precious metals such as silver and gold.
Pendants work really well when they’re layered with other jewellery worn around the neck so keep your eye out for some the next time you go shopping.
Like it or loathe it, the ubiquitous gold hoop isn’t going anywhere. What we have noticed is that the range of styles available has really increased and some of them actually look quite tasteful. Rose gold hoop earrings as well as a traditional silver are definitely on trend this season.
The traditional ring has been pushed aside and in its place you’ll find big, bold and brash rings that any fashionista would approve of. The choice of colours and styles are endless but the bigger the better.
Gold is a popular colour with various adornments from pieces of stone with diamonds in the middle to what appears to be large buttons which form a sort of sovereign ring. You’ll be sure to find yourself the talk of any party with a statement ring on each finger. Consider stacking them for maximum effect.
Chain Linked Bracelet
Out are the chunky bangles and in are a more sophisticated slimline bracelet. Again, rose gold is the colour of choice here with yellow gold bringing up the rear. We find that these bracelets work best when layered so buy yourself a handful.
Brands such as Swarovski, Tiffany and Thomas Sabo have been producing jewellery for years. You will find that a lot of the pieces they produce are considered to be affordable and are available from anywhere from £50 upwards, making them accessible to most people. Each designer likes to put a personal slant onto each piece they produce with Swarovski being known for utilising large numbers of crystals to good effect.
We would suggest that you browse their extensive collections which are updated regularly and see which style you prefer. Trollbeads jewellery is another option for those who like something a little different. They traditionally incorporate gothic and mythical themes into their jewellery which makes a refreshing change to some of the more run of the mill designs available. They even give you the ability buy individual beads and make your own bracelets.
Whatever your taste in fashion and jewellery, you will be sure to find something that you’ll be proud to wear for many years.
