Hottest Jewellery Trends
The Simple Classic
These timeless designs will never go out of trend. This is the style to go for if you are not keen in keeping up with the roller coaster types of new trends coming out every fashion season. Classics are usually simple in design, with no fanciful and elaborate details. Some of the classic designs include the simple ball studs and plain hoop earrings.
The Sparkling Cut
This is another kind of classic style that will always be trendy. After all, everybody wants and needs some sparkles in their life! Instead of going for expensive, sparkling stones (you know what we are talking about), gold jewellery can have faceted surfaces that are carefully crafted and cut in such a way that it reflects off light and sparkles wonderfully on its own. Best part? You can skip the heftier price tag that the sparkly stones carry.
The Precious Stones
Gold jewellery has evolved in many different ways to its present form. Precious stones such as natural diamonds, pearls and other gemstones were commonly used in pairing with gold jewellery.
Fun Fact: Pearls are the only gemstones in the world that come from a living creature.
Now, it is extremely common for other alternatives such as semi-precious or synthetic stones to also be paired with gold to make jewellery. These alternatives include lab grown synthetic diamonds and diamond simulants like Cubic Zirconia. Cubic Zirconia is a synthetic gemstone made of the cubic crystalline form of zirconium dioxide. Often regarded as an inexpensive diamond alternative, Cubic Zirconia is distinct in its aesthetic qualities and physical structure as they are lab-grown. Although they are often colourless to simulate white diamonds, there are also coloured variations of Cubic Zirconia.
The beauty of the gold jewellery can often be accentuated by beautifully coloured stones, especially if you play around and pair the colours well!
The Dancing Diamond
Since we’re on the topic on precious stones and diamonds, one of the more recent trends is the dancing diamond design where the diamond (can be real or synthetic) are set with a special technique, that converts the slightest movement into energy that makes the diamond swing and flicker incessantly – resulting in a stone that never stops glittering on one's neckline with gentle and elegant dance-like movements. We have a feeling that this trend is here to stay in the long run, given how beautiful it is, that no picture of the jewellery can show its true beauty.
The Delicate Charms
Bracelet charms. That is probably the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word charm together with jewellery. Charms are actually so versatile and you can easily customise your jewellery by mixing charms that you like. From bracelets to even necklaces. Below is an example of us putting 3 charms together on a necklace chain - a coin, a handbag and a Koi fish. The coin represents the wealth we hope to have, the bag representing our love for shopping and the Koi representing good luck that we also wish to have. Of course, different charms can have different meanings to each individual, or you can even choose charms based on what you think looks good together!
The Mix-toned Gold
The most common gold colours that people often wear as jewellery are the yellow, white and rose gold. Some designs incorporate different colours of gold into the jewellery, which can give it a fresh and unique look. Two-toned jewellery with yellow and white gold together is probably the most common mix, with the two colours coming together in a beautiful and bright contrast, followed closely by the trio-toned jewellery that is versatile and chic.
