Jewellery Trends: Blue, Bold and Pearls
May 21, 2014
Thinking about what the jewellery trends later this year might be? We spot our favourite styles from the fashion catwalks of Milan, New York, Paris and London to wear and enjoy this Summer and Autumn.
BLUE IS THE COLOUR
Perhaps anticipating the warmth of the sea or a crisp clean sky, blue is the clear colour of choice this summer on the catwalk.
Think of a colour palette that ranges from bright electric to baby blue, but be sure that it is blue. Anna Sui, Dsquared2, Armani, Dior & Oscar De La Renta were just a few of the labels that will be influencing the look of this season.
In fine jewellery, we anticipate a selection of blue gemstones to match, from the deep blue of sapphires and London Blue topaz, to the mauve of spinels and the delicate pastel blue of aquamarine.
BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
From the bold styles of last summer, jewellery designs this year continue the trend with more oversized gemstones and chains.
At Chanel, statement imitation pearls have been stretched to several centimetres in diameter. At Nina Ricci, rose quartz and malchite are worn in large rings and cuffs revealing their polished surface. Finally Balmain goes all the way with oversized chains in the form of chunky necklaces and bracelets, integrating these too in their womenswear collection.
Pearls continue to reign with a unique and effortless style that seems to complement the inventiveness and sophistication of today's catwalk.
This signature gem was playfully worn as pairs of giant headphones at Chanel, whilst models at Nicole Miller were draped with pearls layered in varying sizes amongst chains and other beads.
Discover the new collection of earrings and pendants at Winterson this Autumn, styling aquamarine and other gemstones with the pretty white beauty of an Akoya pearl or the silvery-grey of a Tahitian pearl.
