With 2021 now in full swing, many of us are thinking about style – and what we’re going to wear as things start returning to normal. As always jewellery should be right at the top of your list of priorities, but what trends can we expect to see over the coming months? Check them out below:
When you think of pearls, what comes to mind? Usually, it’s a round, white pearlescent sphere.
But classically-shaped pearls are getting a bit of a makeover in 2021. Designers are now experimenting with irregular shapes – more like the type you’d find if you opened clams yourself.
When you think about it, it’s a little strange that slightly odd-shaped pearls didn’t come along earlier. After all, we’ve had irregular jewellery for a long time now. But now we’re starting to see more brands focusing on them, in preparation for a wave of purchases over the summer.
A few years ago, relatively few people had even heard of moonstones. The birthstone was pretty much off the radar.
Now, though, this interesting jewel is becoming more popular – and for good reasons. The stone is interesting to look at and goes well with practically any outfit.
Moonstones are also relatively inexpensive – even if you buy a large stone. However, what really counts is the quality of the metal that goes with it. You’ll pay more for solid white gold and intricate patterning.
If you thought ethical diamonds were a hit last year, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Ethical diamonds from brands like Jacob Mercari are going to be making their way into our collections this year.
What’s amazing about the current diamond market is how it is opening up. For years, sole producers limited supplies. But now we’re seeing more independent players in the market, and that’s helping matters a great deal.
