Anyone who knows me knows that I will never part from my small gold hoops. They’re a classic style, go with everything and add just the right touch of glam to outfits. Having a go-to jewellery style also makes life so much easier - the ‘nothing to wear’ dilemma might completely confound me most mornings, but with my trusty gold hoops, I never falter.
Like me, fashion’s elite are paring back on their bling and leaning towards one or two key jewellery trends. Influencer Lucy Williams is never seen without a gold antique-looking pendant or two, Caroline Daur loves her layered chains and Sophie Milner is known for her stacked studs and ear cuffs.
In celebration of only the most essential jewellery trends, we’re looking to Newbridge Silverware who have been crafting jewellery, homeware and giftware since 1921 in County Kildare, Ireland. After all, shopping for essentials demands quality and Newbridge Silverware are well known for their experience as a heritage brand, craftsmanship and exciting, contemporary designs.
So, which jewellery trends have made Octer’s list of essentials? There are the traditional classics - diamond studs and pearls - as well as modern favourites, gold pendants, diamond studs and, of course, gold hoops. Would you expect anything less?
All hail the gold hoop - we love Newbridge Silverware’s contemporary take on the trend with a thicker width and touch of colour from the blue Preciosa crystal stone settings.
A true classic that every woman should have in her jewellery box. They may be pricey, but in white gold and diamond, these Newbridge studs will never tarnish, never irritate sensitive ears and will always be in style.
Newbridge Silverware’s Galaxy Pendant with a blue stone combines two of our favourite things: the gold, antique-looking pendant necklace trend that has dominated the jewellery industry for the past few years and astrology. It’s the ideal gift for any zodiac obsessed Millennial. Either wear yours alone for a casual touch of glam or layer up with other gold chains and pendants.
Forget what you know about pearls - 2019 was the year that they transformed from your grandma’s favourite into a Millennial staple, especially when featured in a modern setting such as these Newbridge crystal and pearl earrings.
If you haven’t already heard, charm bracelets are back and bigger than ever. Either wear one delicate bracelet alone for a minimal look or layer several up.
Want to achieve the multi-pierced, stacked ear look that so many influencers love but don’t have your ears pierced? An ear cuff is your best friend.
