Let’s face it, winter fashion can sometimes feel a little, well, monochrome. But this season, Instagram is ablaze with enough sparkle and shine to melt even the frostiest of days—cue the 2024 jewellery trends. Don’t worry, GRAZIA has done the work for you. We’ve rounded up the top five jewellery trends of the season, so you can embrace the arm (and eye) candy yourself.
These seasonal styles will have you looking fire from the cozy confines of your home to the hottest après-ski scene.
1. Pearl Power
Move over, basic pearls. This winter, leading the jewellery trends are chunky, mismatched pearls that scream individuality. Think of it as the pearl necklace’s rebellious younger sister, stomping onto the scene with bold colors and unconventional shapes. We’re loving brands like Alighieri and The M Jewelers who are reimagining pearls with a modern edge. Think mismatched freshwater pearls, baroque pearls mixed with gold chains, or even pearl chokers layered with chunky knitwear for a cozy-chic vibe.
2. Brooch Revival
Remember your grandma’s dusty brooch collection? It’s time to raid her attic (or your local vintage store) because brooches are back in a big way! But this isn’t your nana’s cameo. Think edgy statement pieces with geometric shapes, whimsical enamel designs, or even vintage finds with a touch of Art Deco flair. Lead the jewellery charge with opulent, bejeweled brooches, perfect for adding a touch of unexpected glamour to your winter coat or sweater.
3. Ear Candy Evolution
Forget boring studs, this winter, your ears are the canvas for a masterpiece. Think mismatched earrings, sculptural shapes, and layers upon layers of cascading chains. We’re obsessed with Completedworks‘ mismatched pearl and crystal earrings and their ear cuffs that add a touch of avant-garde drama. Don’t be afraid to experiment with asymmetry and mixed metals for a truly unique look.
4. Silver Linings
Step aside, gold, because silver is having a moment. From chunky chain necklaces to delicate, layered bracelets, silver jewellery adds a touch of cool sophistication to any winter outfit. Take silver jewellery to new heights with sculptural pieces and organic shapes. Bonus points for mixing silver with unexpected textures like leather or knitwear for a touch of downtown edge.
5. Cuff Craze
Give your wrists some well-deserved attention with the comeback of the bracelet cuff. This winter, ditch the dainty bangles and opt for bold, sculptural cuffs that make a statement. We’re loving brands like Saint Laurent and Jennifer Fisher who are taking the bracelet cuff to new heights with their modern interpretations of this classic style. Layer a chunky cuff over a delicate chain bracelet for added depth and dimension, or rock a statement cuff solo for a minimalist yet impactful look.
