Hello there 🙂
Buying fine jewelry is definitely a big deal. Regardless of whether you are investing in your first piece or expanding your ever-growing collection, both the price and the longevity of fine jewelry weigh on a buyer. As with the rest of the fashion cycles, there are trends in fine jewelry that wane from season to season, and this year some have piqued the interest of fine jewelry experts far and wide. Since investing in beautiful jewelry is not frivolous, I've reached out to some of my favorite experts in the field to guide you through the biggest fine jewelry trends of 2021.
Each of the following trends were selected through this fashion girl lens. If you haven't already, you will see these styles on your Instagram feeds, TikToks, and more. I am confident that with the help of the experts listed below, you will find a fine jewelry trend to invest in this year, from the latest logo mania craze to the industry's ever-growing obsession with heavy chains.
This trend can be stifled up to Gen Z. There is undoubtedly a huge difference between affordable costume jewelry and fine jewelry dripping in diamonds, but the younger generation of fashion girls seem to be finding the sweet spot: logo mania. Similar to the Tiffany & Co. heart necklace (which is back in trend, FYI) in 2000, major fashion brands from Gucci to Louis Vuitton sell branded jewelry left and right. While I definitely wouldn't call these pieces "affordable", they do come at a price point that is a point of entry and entry for someone looking to start their fine jewelry collection.
In addition to this specific logo trend, fine jewelry is generally finding more and more resonance with younger buyers. "We have seen a strong focus on emerging brands that resonate with a younger, more fashion-conscious customer looking for luxury jewelry that speaks to them. This season we hired our first dedicated fine jewelry mentor as part of our Vanguard- Program with aspiring designer Jameel Mohammed, who launched his first jewelry collection, KHIRY Fine. Inspired by aspects of global and personal black culture, his collection offers a unique view that resonates with our customers. "Libby Page, Senior Market Editor at Net -a-porter, tell us. In other words, we can assume that this generation will produce really new trends and designers in the field of fine jewelry.
"Chains are cyclical. Chains have come and gone for as long as I can remember. I equate chains with a denim-like trend. Like hoop earrings, they are a classic piece of jewelry that has always been a style, a weight and a a color for everyone. Depending on their size, chains can make a statement and embellish any outfit, whether it's a tracksuit, jeans, a T-shirt or a dress. ”- Jennifer Fisher
"Color is a central part of Pomellato's DNA, especially in our nudo collection. Purple is trendy in jewelry and we can explore that shade with amethyst. In fact, we're launching a collection of nudo amethyst and white diamond rings in February , Lariat, and earrings and expect this to be a very popular collection. ”- Sabina Belli, CEO of the Pomellato Group
"The stackability of jewelry is so much fun and allows for great combinations of parts. From necklaces of different lengths and sizes to stacking bracelets for an amazing 'arm party', Pomellato offers a variety of options for the right look. Our Iconica- Collection is perfect for stacking bracelets of different sizes and shapes: large and small links, bangles and cuffs for a perfect look. Not only can you stack the bracelets on your wrist, but you can also join them together to create an amazing look from chunky Forming chains around your neck You can't go wrong with chains. The more, the better! "- Belli
"My modern take on this timeless gemstone continues into 2021! I like to play with shape and size, so I either like them large and organic with larger baroque pearls to make a strong, chic statement, or a tiny, round, jagged set for a delicate feminine vibe. Expect both sizes of these glowing beauties to be incorporated into my heavier chain styles and, as always, mixed with diamonds of all shapes and sizes. "- Zoe Chicco
