4 top jewellery trends for 2021
While 2020 ended up being the year for face masks rather than glitz and glamour, 2021 will give us the opportunity to start fresh and look forward to a more normal year ahead. So, why not check out our top jewellery trends for 2021? From gemstone jewellery to textured metals and more, there's so many ways you can experiment with your style in the upcoming year.
Crushed and manipulated metals are going to be all the rage going forward. These were spotted headlining the Spring/Summer catwalks for Acne, Chloe, Jacquemus, and plenty more high fashion brands, so there's no denying they're right on the mark.
Why not begin your 2021 jewellery search with some gorgeous textured metals? Whether you invest in curb, figaro, or rope pieces, you can be sure they'll gain you some serious style points, no matter how casual or formal the rest of your outfit is. There are no rules as to what colours the metal needs to be, which means you can choose accessories that fit in with your personal style and your looks. But, for an extra contemporary touch, why not try mixing and matching your metals? While this might have been a massive faux pas back in the day, making a point with your jewellery by challenging old norms will only put you ahead of the crowd.
If one good thing came out of this past year, it's that jewel-toned gemstones were a big 2020 jewellery trend. And, luckily for us all, gemstones don't seem to be going anywhere in 2021. To ensure you're bang on trend in the year ahead, make sure you invest in some great quality gemstone pieces that you can wear for years to come.
While some people may choose to incorporate their birthstones into their jewellery, there are no hard and fast rules for what colour gemstone you can choose. So, if you've got your eye on a beautiful, bright aquamarine or sapphire stone, or you like the look of deep ruby against your skin tone, the choice is yours!
You could invest in a matching necklace, bracelet, and earrings. Or you could mix and match two complementary stones to add an extra stylish touch to your outfit.
Pearls have been a big trend for a couple of years now, with people of all ages adding them to their jewellery collections. From hairclips to hairbands and chokers, we haven't stopped seeing pearls being added to outfits. And, according to the high-fashion catwalks, they're here to stay in 2021, too.
The creamy white tone of pearls makes them incredibly versatile, meaning you can add them to any of your outfits and guarantee they'll match nicely. So, consider investing in some beautiful pearl earrings, or even a matching set with a pearl bracelet and necklace for a super luxe look. These can be easily worn with your other staple pieces of jewellery, including both plain and gemstone items. So, experiment with your look and mix it up.
Got two favourite pairs of earrings, and can never decide which to wear? Problem solved. The mismatched earrings trend means you can combine subtle and statement styles and wear them at the same time.
We'd recommend pairing simple studs with statement drop or fancy earrings to tick the trend boxes perfectly, but don't be afraid to get even more inventive if you're going for a look that's unique to your style.
