How Women Across Generations Are Hijacking Millennial Trends
It is often the ‘younger’ generation — in our day and age, the Millennials — who push the envelope when it comes to jewellery and fashion trends. Bold, eye-catching, and versatile pieces that express the wearer’s personality are definitely in demand. Jewellery that is as trendy as it is practical is definitely a must-have in any woman’s collection.
Luckily, these trends don’t just apply to Millennials. Women across generations all want the same thing: to own and wear exquisite jewellery that comfortably moulds around their lifestyle and expresses their individuality. This sentiment is at the heart of our brand, and our designs reflect this ethos.
Below we share the latest jewellery trends hijacked by women across generations. We explore three effortless and fun ways every woman can accessorise according to her own unique style, personality and mood. Enjoy!
1. Exotic, coloured gemstones — never a dull moment
While diamonds were once the ultimate in coveted stones, the allure of coloured precious stones, especially the Big 3 — rubies, sapphires and emeralds — has enchanted wearers going back as far as ancient civilisations.
Having said that, nowadays it is the semi-precious stones that are steadily gaining a loyal following. The likes of amethyst and tsavorite evoke a sense of richness and opulence, while citrine and blue topaz introduce an air of vibrant freshness. Exotic stones come in a rainbow of hues and guarantee to lift any woman’s wardrobe and jewellery collection by injecting a splash of delightful colour. They are as eye-catching as their precious counterparts, yet considerably kinder to the wallet at highly attractive price points.
It is exactly their affordability paired with the vibrant charm that has allowed them to gain momentum in popularity and undeniable charm.

2. Cocktail rings — say it single-handedly
Originally worn by women in the 1920s and 30s at underground cocktail parties during the U.S. Prohibition, flamboyant cocktail rings were a symbol of independence and rebellion. Today, these big statement pieces are worn any time of day, no matter what the occasion.
Women no longer want to resign to the understated and ‘safe’ options in their collection. Instead, they treat themselves to fun, edgy, and sexy pieces that accompany them while they are out and about. Whether they are on a school-run, attending business lunches, or partying the night away, a bold cocktail ring, especially when set with coloured stones, can single-handedly (pun intended) complete a look.

You can also design your very own bespoke piece, or why not surprise your mum this Mother’s Day with a unique treasure made just for her. Contact Louise before 16th March to make your mother’s day this year.
3. Stacking & layering — when more is more
A hugely popular way to accessorise is to stack or layer multiple pieces, thereby creating a myriad of unique combinations. This trend does not allow for a conservative, understated approach, but rather, this is one of those rare times when more is more.
It is an opportune and fun way to breathe new life into your collection. Individual pieces are usually not too ‘out there’, but grouped together, they create an impactful and dynamic mix to style up an outfit.
