The 2018 jewellery trend forecast is out for winter, and what we’re seeing so far is interesting. Beautiful floral designs, some truly stunning geometrics, and plenty of gorgeous gemstones are making their way onto runways. Not surprisingly, statement jewellery is taking centre stage.
Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, and Chanel are just a few of the designers who are offering bold statement necklaces this season. They’re among the top jewellery trends for 2018, and are often seen worn alone or with small, understated earrings. Several fashion designers are also showcasing impressive chandelier earrings alongside glittering chokers studded with diamonds and gemstones in a splendid, almost old-fashioned way. Some designs take their inspiration from history’s pages, with whimsical botanical shapes; others are purely modern expressions.
When it comes to fine jewellery trends 2018, coloured gemstones are popular once more. Impressively sculpted pieces including bracelets, rings, single earrings, and asymmetrical earrings take full advantage of the colour and sparkle that coloured gemstones impart, as do incredible matched earrings by designers such as Badgley Mischka, Marchesa, and the Brock Collection. Semi-precious coloured stones including turquoise, particularly when set in traditional Native American and contemporary Southwestern-inspired pieces are once again regaining prominence, new designs as well as classic squash blossoms and ovals are enjoying popularity.
Bold, single earrings are incredible statement pieces that can take just about any outfit to the next level. We’re seeing some amazing pieces from designers like Oscar de la Renta, Phillip Lim, Johathan Simkhai, and Hellessy hitting the runways.
Metals, gemstones, and of course diamonds – all of these materials are finding their way into designs that make jewellery trends for fall / winter 2018 very exciting. Look for pieces by Alexander Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Anna Sui, Ralph Lauren, and more. Whatever your style, there’s a good likelihood that you can find at least one choker to complement your wardrobe. From classic, gemstone studded marvels to sleek, modern masterpieces, there are lots to choose from.
Hoop earrings are back – in a big, big way. While it’s true that runway looks are often a bit more impressive than pieces found on the rack, bold hoops are an easy look for anyone to achieve, and this season, they’re available in metal and other materials, with or without embellishments. Hoops can be worn to satisfy the single earring trend, but they’re still incredible as a matched set. Embrace the look with something fresh and bold, or satisfy your classic fashion sense with diamond-studded hoops in a size that complements your face and pairs well with a variety of your favourite wardrobe items. This is one trend that’s been around for some time and is here to stay for the long-term.
