As we experience the fierce wind chill of Midwinter, the inability to escape from the Omicron variant, and the continual controversy over Partygate; life in the UK right now can feel rather dire. So why don’t you brighten the dull moments of your days with some brilliant jewellery, with some of the items that we explore here.
A Golden opportunity to reinvent yourself
After the early stages of Covid19 and periods of quarantine, where showy jewellery didn’t have much purpose, we have re-emerged into an era of jewellery maximalism. One of the main trends that symbolises this most is covering your hands in a menagerie of jewellery; through the stacking of rings, bracelets and pieces of jewellery that link the two.
If you want a golden centrepiece to begin a jewellery stack like the one in the picture above, then we would highly recommend this magnificent Diamond Centre Stone Cluster Ring. It’s a powerful and bold piece of jewellery that can’t be ignored when it is on someone’s finger, and the height of luxurious accessories. It would most definitely be a great piece to kickstart your personal evolution in 2022.
However if you dislike the thought of having a large showy ring and covering yourself in a whole collection of jewellery, you might prefer pieces that highlight delicate and alluring gemstones, like this delicate one below. The brilliant stone is the star of the show, and the ring itself is less important.
If you enjoy this style, then this wonderful Cabochon Colombian Emerald Ring is definitely for you. At its heart is the splendid Colombian Emerald from Bogotá, set in a delicate ring of 18 karat gold. If you are someone who really values gemstones and jewellery, and want to add to a paired back collection, this piece is perfect for you.
Oozing style and grace
Another trend that you might find yourself interested in taking part in is the stacking of delicate necklaces. Whilst bold chains and large pendants may have dominated the world of necklaces recently, there is also a place for dainty pieces of jewellery that can be appreciated but don’t demand people’s attention.
A great item to fulfil your desire for necklaces is this Rose Gold Diamond Rubover Necklace; which is a lovely strand of 18 karat rose gold, adorned in one karat diamonds by the yard. The elegant diamonds make for a wonderful piece of jewellery, and rose gold with it’s ever growing popularity means the necklace will only become more popular in the future as people begin to echo existing trends in years to come.
The gifts of nature
As the jewellery world has begun to take on board the effects of climate change and is striving to become more environmentally conscious in their business practices; through using more sustainable gemstone mines, sources of precious metals and improved production methods. Another way the industry has done this is through the celebration of nature, such as this delightful Starfish pendant which is expertly modelled here.
If you have an interest in these ideas about sustainability, or just appreciate the forms of beauty that nature provides; this Round Cut Diamond Star Pendant that is similar to the Starfish pendant is a wonderful piece that would be a great addition to your existing jewellery collection.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Finally, if you agree with Marilyn Monroe, then you might be interested in spicing up your winter wardrobe with some dazzling gems.
Whilst bold diamond tiaras and remarkable diamond rings will always remain popular, more subdued pieces constructed from lots of smaller diamonds are currently in vogue.
If you enjoy this daintier style of diamond jewellery, then this Pave Set Diamond Bangle will be a sublime accompaniment to your arsenal of accessories. It’s ideal for those who desire a lovely piece of jewellery that can be worn in all situations and looks stylish with whatever outfit you may have on.
