New year, new me? More like new year, new jewellery. Fashion trends change fast and change often. Some trends remain timeless and forever while others go out of style as quickly as they come out. New styles replace old ones, and old styles get reinvented for the new world. With so much happening so fast, it can be hard to keep up with the latest trends.
So, as you plan to replenish your glittering collection of baubles and bits, here are some of the top trends that will keep you on fleek the year-round.
Supersized Hoops :
A classic for the ages, hoop earrings are an insanely popular trend today and for good reason. The appeal of hoops can be attributed to their versatility. From classy, chic cocktail dresses to a laid-back white tee and denims, there isn’t a single outfit that can’t be tied together by a simple pair of hoops.
Time and again the hoops have been reinvented and recreated, giving this timeless trend a new spin and a new spirit. Our Meenakari Rani Hoops, for instance, bring together this classic style with intricate Meenakari work that is traditional to the rich culture of India. From a bold pair of gemstone embellished hoops to a pair of standard ringlets featuring the finest metalwork you have ever seen, hoops are fun and free.
Be it work formals or a night out, you can count on a trusty pair of hoops to see you through. They are easy to style and look effortlessly elegant. So, stash up on as many hoops as you can. And always remember, the bigger the better!
Another fun trend to look out for are handcrafted statement-style necklaces. These bold pieces often feature complex and dense designs, unlike anything you’ve seen before. Their unique styles will set them apart from the ordinary and are bound to make a lasting impression.
A traditional take on this trendy style is our Temple Pearl Necklace set with intricate pearl-work handcrafted by a small group of Indian women. True to the Indian heritage, this necklace is bold and luxurious and comes with earrings to match.
Live loud and go big with these necklaces. Be as ostentatious as you have always wanted to be and carry it off with style.
Jackie Kennedy once said, ‘Pearls are always appropriate,’ and we must say that we agree. Another timeless trend, pearls have popped up time and again with new styles to try and design to fall in love with. As of 2019, pearls have taken over the fashion industry, featuring on shoes, buttons and even engagement rings (see: Emma Stone). It is safe to say that a trend is set in stone once it is used beyond the space of jewellery.
At Aferando, we absolutely adore pearls. The elegance, the style and the sheer versatility of pearls will elevate the simplest piece of jewellery like nothing else. Handcrafted with the utmost passion, our pearl work is intricate and unique. From our delicate, pearl-adorned earrings like our Handcrafted Golden Princess Kundan Pearl Earrings to our bold, pearl-encrusted rings, pearls are great fun and make for some of the most exciting jewellery pieces out there.
With its effortless shine, pearls are the queen among gems and a trend to last forever.
Colors breathe life into the world around them. With multicolored stones in every shade, this trend is a kaleidoscope of colors. From bright fuschias to the brilliant yellows, vibrant hues are very much in season. So, go all out with the theme and make the most of every tint and shade on the spectrum.
With a blend of beautiful hues, our hand-painted Meenakari ring adds that perfect pop of color with its bright blues and pretty pinks. The colorful vibe is something we love to incorporate in our jewellery. It is charming, playful and adds so much character to a simple ring or pair of earrings.
Join the trend and showcase your pride with your rainbow gemstones in the boldest, brightest shades that you can find.
A red-hot trend that we cannot get enough of is layering. Layer upon layer of necklaces, stacked bracelets and rings! When it comes to layering, the goal is to personalize your style and to make it your own, unique statement to the world.
You can go bold and chunky or subtle and delicate. Mix and match your diamond rings with colorful stones and vary the thicknesses and lengths of your chains, slip in a diamond tennis bracelet in the midst of beads and leathers and go to town with experimenting. You can start with a base necklace like our Minimalist Half Moon Diamond Set Necklace, and then layer it with finer chains and delicate pendants.
When stacking, there really are no rules. Don’t be afraid to mix up the metals as you move down the layers of jewellery. White and yellow gold chains with a white gold pair of earrings? Well, why not! You can even incorporate other popular trends in your layering like chokers, chain-link necklaces or personalized pendants.
As you create your own layered style, just have fun with it. Make it whimsical and wonderful and fall in love with this versatile trend.
While hopping onto this trendy bandwagon, remember to have fun with it. Trends are super fun and are a great way to get inspired. They are merely guidelines for what is popular. At the end of the day, fashion is meant to be fun. It is a form of exploring your own identity and self-expression. So, do not hesitate to go off the beaten path or stray a bit. Make these trends your own and find your own way of incorporating them into your everyday outfits.
We, at Aferando believe this with all our heart and love to put our own spin on these trendy styles to give you something unique and special. A combination of the timeless Indian tradition and classic modern trends, our jewellery pieces bridge the past and present.
