The weather outside may be frightful, but that’s no reason to get down in the dumps! There’s nothing like some delightful new jewelry to lift your spirits and we at JupiterGem have scoured the runways to bring you the hottest trends of Winter 2022.
More is More!!!
Move over dainty chains and delicate stacking rings. Bigger is definitely better! Everything, from earrings to rings and necklaces, was super-sized on the runways. Large gemstones were back in force and were accompanied by enormous chunky chains and masses of fringe. And don’t think because the pieces are large you only need one. Layering is definitely in, so stack up those necklaces and bracelets and add a massive ring to each finger. This season really is about more, more, more!
Shaken not Stirred
The cocktail ring is back with a bang. And nothing beats a knockout central stone. While we all love the classic red, green and blue tones of the ruby, emerald and sapphire, this year it’s time to delve a little deeper into the crayon box. For Mediterranean blues and greens look to aquamarines and paraiba tourmalines. If you prefer the rosy side of the spectrum why not try rare pinky-orange padparadscha sapphires or this season’s hottest trend – raspberry hued rubellites?
In the past an enormous cocktail ring might have been the finishing touch to your outfit. This season it’s just the start. Ensure your earrings make just as big an impression by going for chunky gem-encrusted hoops or eye-catching shoulder-grazing pieces. If big gold chain necklaces aren’t your thing, why not update your classic long, fine, gold chain with a fabulous pendant. Go for a round stone to add instant glamor with this season’s most popular shape. And to really stay on trend consider incorporating spinels, alexandrites and green garnets.
Oh So Charming
Charms are still having their moment in the fashion sun. No longer just for bracelets, this runway season saw them added to necklaces with designers like Miu Miu and Marni attaching them to them to gold chains. The trend is to incorporate more of a meaningful personal touch with talisman, zodiac and birthstone charms set to be extremely popular. So whether you wear them on a bracelet, round your neck or from gold huggies make sure your charms say something about you.
Girl with a Pearl Earring
Pearls were all over the runways this season, with everyone from Dolce and Gabbana to Chanel agreeing with Jackie O’s famous statement that ‘pearls are always appropriate’. Nothing sets off the smooth silky luster of a pearl better than the dazzling sparkle of a diamond and for centuries this spectacular combination has proved irresistible. If you’re worried that pearls are slightly old-fashioned look no further than Ariana Grande’s stunning engagement ring. Its 5 carat oval-cut diamond nestled at an angle next to a white pearl is a perfect example of how to wear pearls in a modern way.
Color of the Year
Pantone have just released Very Peri as their color for 2022. A rich periwinkle blue with a violet-red undertone, it is meant to invoke courage, personal inventiveness and to inspire creativity. It combines blue’s calming, dependable essence with a hint of red’s fire and energy to create a color that is, according to the people at Pantone, both confident and curious. It’s also very pretty. If you’d like to take some of this energy into the new year (or you just like the color!) you need look no further than our hand-selected collection of magnificent tanzanites, spinels and blue sapphires.
