Professional jewellery organisations around the world have been full of chatter about what will be “in” in 2015….to save you the time, I’ve summarised the most predicted trends for you…
Statement necklaces - whilst earrings once again reigned supreme in 2014, necklaces will finally take back their spot as a statement piece for 2015. Yay! Don’t be held back by fashion rules for necklaces … if you like it, wear it!
Necklaces that you can layer – either multistrand necklaces that give you the layered look instantly – or multiple single necklaces worn together.
Wrap bracelets for that layered look – with an emphasis on charms, gemstone, metal and leather.
Statement cuffs – particularly embellished metals.
Rings that stack – the layering look continues to the hand – particularly multiple slim styles creating a big ring look.
Coloured stones – whilst coloured diamonds are the province of the rich and famous, coloured gemstones of all type will appeal to those whose wallets aren’t quite that large!
Motifs from the 1960s and 70s. With the runways heavily inspired by these two decades, accessories featuring geometric shapes (circles, squares, zigzags) and bohemian themes (owls, beads, feathers, fringes) will go with these fashions.
Rainbows – a personal favourite of mine, rainbows will continue to be popular this year with colourful patterns, trios of hues and multiple colours with one particular colour brought to the forefront.
Vintage designs. Whilst they don’t have to be vintage themselves, designs that are inspired by vintage themes and shapes will continue to be popular in new jewellery.
Yellow Gold – with a drop in price (somewhat!) making the metal more affordable over the last year or so, and a trend on the runways for yellow… this mellow metal is set to become more popular in 2015.
Pantone’s colour of the year, Marsala, is a kind of soft wine gravy colour … not that inspiring for jewellery lol, however on the colour wheel, the colours surrounding Marsala are appealing – think soft pinks, lavenders, purples and reds.
Are you looking forward to any of these trends making an appearance?
