Earlier this month, Fall/Winter Fashion Week took place, showcasing the season’s collections and highlighting upcoming trends. While many eyes were on the outfits, we were more concerned with catching the smaller details – jewellery. However, this season’s jewellery is anything but small. Trends dictated by the biggest, most influential names in fashion – Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga – show a common theme: bigger is better. Jewellery for 2018 should be anything but small and dainty. We are loving bold jewellery that showcases the unique personality of the wearer, styles that mix texture and colour, and statement pieces that pack a visual punch!

On and off the runways of fashion week, celebrities and models have been spotted everywhere wearing earrings that capture every sense of the word “bold.” A trifecta of design elements pulls this trend together – bigger, bolder, and longer; you name it, they are wearing it. While this trend is begging you to go over-the-top, keep your choice of earrings as functional as they are fashionable by selecting light-weight materials that won’t weight down your lobes.
Try on our Silver Hammered Drop Earrings – modern and fashionable drop earrings with a gorgeous hammered texture made entirely of sterling silver that beautifully shimmers in the light.
Yes, you read that right! It’s time to call up your grandmother and ask if you can take a look through her old costume jewellery. This season, thanks to the likes of Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen, we are excited to see brooches hitting the runway in every shape and form from totally blinged out to sleek and minimal. You can use your brooch to secure a neck scarf in place, or simply wear one pinned to a dress, skirt, coat, or hat to add an extra touch of detail to any outfit.
Check out this intricate antique diamond wreath brooch in our showroom! This 1950’s piece is made of 18 karat white gold and features 1.38 carats of diamonds.
Nature’s miracle, the pearl, is a trend that has never really gone away. Pearls are a timeless symbol of beauty and are versatile enough to be worn in an infinite amount of combinations. To stay on-trend with your pearls in 2018, be playful with how you wear them. Layer necklaces or bracelets, wear different tones of pearls in the same outfit, or use pearls to embellish your whole look – from ear to neck to wrist! Take chances! Our trend report says that you can get away with wearing your pearls more often and more obviously in 2018 than ever before.
This gorgeous Freshwater Pearl Drop Necklace is fashionable and affordable; a pair of white freshwater pearls knotted into a drop shape take a modern spin on a classic necklace. Pair it with simple pearl studs or layer it with necklaces of differing lengths.
