Five important trends to invest in jewellery this holiday season

Five important trends to invest in jewellery this holiday season 

 

Holiday season is a great time for investing in some new key pieces of jewellery. Why not take advantage of the time to pick up on some of this season's important trends? Here are our top five:

 
Ear Cuffs
Forget about small studs, great big hoops or the usual style of earrings – this season is all about ear cuffs. Big, bold and giving the appearance of multiple piercings without having to actually go through getting them, they're great for giving you an edgy look without the extra effort. There's a whole variety of styles – from chains linking a small cuff at the top of the ear to a usual piercing, to full pieces covering the entire outer ear.

You don't even need to have any piercing to take advantage of this trend – whilst some of the larger pieces might be out, you can get smaller cuffs that are less painful to wear than clip-ons, but still look convincingly like piercings. These are particularly great for those of you who want to have the punk look without the maintenance required. 
 
Geometric Jewellery
Gone are flowing curves and soft angles, and in are hard corners, bright colours and blocky geometric shapes. Whether it's plastic diamond-shaped earrings, or a big statement pendant, there's something out there for you. We're particular fans of those that are somewhat ironic – diamond-shaped, rather than diamonds, and that sort of thing. 
 
The advantage of the geometric trend is that it can be easily suited to whatever budget you have. Bright, primary coloured resins and plastics work really well with this trend, meaning you can get costume jewellery for quite a low price. However, it also lends itself well towards the sharp lines you can get with precious metals, so it's possible to invest in something more substantial if you'd like.
 
Stacking Rings
Why settle for one ring when you can have many? Stacking rings are popular right now – groups of around three to five rings, of different sizes and styles that are designed to be worn in a variety of ways. Whether it's all on one finger, spread among a few or simply wearing them as single thin rings, they're great for matching to a variety of outfits.
 
 
 
Once again, these are a trend that's easy to adjust to suit your budget – you can get anything from gold and gemstones to simple plated bands.  We're huge fans of getting a mix – they're a trend that works with nearly every outfit, and the more variety you have the better!
 
Pearls
Back in fashion after some time away are pearls. No longer do they have to be perfect or white – in fact, black pearls are even more fitting with this year’s trend of gothic inspiration. Unsure the pure white pearls, black pearls don't tend to be all one colour – instead, being near iridescent and often more like an oil slick in terms of colour variance. 
 
Pearls can work in combination with quite a few of the other trends here – particularly the stacking rings or the ear cuffs. 
 
Chokers
Once the realms of the 90s, chokers are back in style. From the classic elasticised raver style, to the Boudicca-esque celtic torques, there's a whole range of options out there for you. Once again, this will give you an edgier vibe to your look – and as you might have noticed, this holiday season is all about gothic trends and slightly edgier looks than one might expect.

Some of our favourite styles include those with a velvet ribbon – perfect for the Christmas season! Otherwise, try to pick out something a bit different. We recommend those that are slightly looser than usual – sitting on the collarbone, rather than the neck itself. These are often comfier for long periods of time, plus give you slightly more space for more dramatic designs. 
 
Overall, this holiday season's trends tend towards experimental, eccentric and more edgy. Don't be afraid to take some risks – ear cuffs, for instance, work best when worn asymmetrically, and it can be worth trying out something new, such as different hairstyle to match. Take advantage of the opportunity to do something you wouldn't otherwise do, style-wise – whether it's just the jewellery, or a whole new wardrobe!
