A new year means a burst of fresh energy, a desire for change in our daily routine and of course, the usual New Year’s resolutions. And one of the areas we usually want to focus on tends to be our wardrobe and accessories.
So with that in mind, we’ve put together a selection of trends that will dominate the jewellery world this year.
Jewellery in Very Peri - the colour of 2022
Pantone has announced that Veri Peri is the colour of 2022. Its colour is something in between blue and purple with subtle undertones of red. According to the psychology associated with colours, blue is the colour of harmony and peace while purple adds creativity and a spiritual dimension. Overall, this new colour has a very positive and uplifting effect, but at the same time it decreases strong emotions and promotes equilibrium and inner balance. Among gemstones, it is best represented by tanzanite.
Pearls in yellow gold
Pearls are not an entirely new thing this year. Their rise in popularity was already evident last year and it is obvious that they will continue to stay as popular. We see their beauty in their purity and symmetry, but now when it comes to pearls, we have also opened up to new trends and modern designs. Examples of this are hoop earrings with a suspended baroque pearl as well as necklaces with smaller pearls that encourage layering.
Large colour gemstones
Lovers of colourful stones and bold rings will be in for a treat this year. Cocktail rings get the green light for everyday wear so you no longer have to see them as jewellery reserved for special occasions but as an accessory that will define you and express your personality at work, when catching up with friends and even at an evening party. And when it comes to choosing the colour and type of gemstone, you should have the biggest say. Choose a stone in your favourite colour or decide based on a zodiac sign or some other symbolism.
Mineral jewellery in boho style
Jewellery handmade from multi-coloured minerals looks light, free and natural. It inspires us to be more spontaneous and to be ourselves. The irregular workmanship reminds us that beauty can also lie in imperfection. These jewels will be appreciated by women who are close to nature and who like to surround themselves with colour. The boho trend is not a fashion fad, rather it’s an expression of a specific approach to life. So if it appeals to you, don't hesitate to get an accessory that has this feel.
Large signet rings are a very interesting type of jewellery that has been inspired by ancient history. Although today they are considered more of a fashion accessory, they used to have a symbolic function and a defined meaning. Unlike their predecessors, today's signet rings are simpler and without ornamental details. Traditionally they should be worn on the smallest finger of the non-dominant hand which is usually the left. However this is not a strict rule, so you can wear your signet ring whichever way wish.
