This month we are going to discuss the trends in jewellery for 2011.

Trends in Jewellery – 2011

Very often in fashion, trends tend to look back to create a new look and that is exactly what is happening in jewellery for 2011. Old styles are back, some have been re-invented, altered and upgraded, but the retro feel is here again. Jewellery is a statement, rather than an accessory and is set to become even bolder than before.


When it comes to necklaces, the fashion is to be layered but compact. This means that you choose your clothes according to your necklace, not the other way round. The idea is to make the jewellery memorable be it large, unusual or colourful. The use of all-metal in pieces has become popular, whether it is traditional yellow gold or white, the designs are large but light and have angular shapes.

A beautiful trend this year is that of fringe-jewellery, which can be seen on all the red carpets lately. No longer is this trend for clothing, but beautiful, long earrings which hang from behind the ear display unique design technique. Fringed bracelets incorporating stones and other materials accentuate exquisite arm wear. Other applications for fringe jewellery is hair clips and even rings have been showing hanging strings of diamonds, coloured stones, beads and even feathers. Due to the retro feel of up and coming jewellery, you can mix and match and use old and new pieces together to make a huge impact. There is also a return to nature with animals and plants featuring in many collections. The overall rule is that your jewellery must make a statement, and that statement should be bold, clear and fun.
