Fine jewellery trends that inspire joy

When we named our trends for the coming year, with our stellar Style Collective, a common theme emerged: liberation. A playful sense of self-expression reigned supreme. Our trends reflect this audacious spirit of authenticity, of owning who you are.

HOOPS WITH
A TWIST

The hoops today reflect a youthful, modern new direction. Their sway, movement, and playfulness also represent a sense of freedom. The current renditions of hoops represent innovation and whimsy, clustered diamonds, interlinked details, and a variety of shapes that, quite literally, reinvent the wheel.

“A hoop is not an earring that takes itself seriously — and I love that! One of the first pieces of diamond jewellery I bought myself was a pair of diamond hoops.
Even as a child, I would steal my mom’s gold hoops from the 1980s and wear them. I like classics but there is always a slight irreverence, so I gravitate towards irregular hoops, that have some personality and character, that are not perfect.”

- Rhea Kapoor

MISATCHED
DIAMONDS

Mixed, fancy cut diamonds have fast become a key trend, allowing wearers to make a statement with subtlety. More importantly, though, they offer the opportunity to add personality to classic pieces, from a tennis bracelet to an engagement band or solitaire necklace thus making each piece truly their own.

“From a designer’s perspective, it’s fun to mix different diamond cuts in one piece — it’s an illusionist’s game. It adds volume, helps play with proportions, creates different shapes and dimensions. Mismatched diamonds also show character and individuality.”

- Katerina Perez

VINTAGE
CUTS

If there’s one cut that defines diamond jewellery now, it’s the Briolette. The drop-shaped diamond uniquely offers a 360-degree view of the diamond, suspended and unobstructed by a table, crown, or pavilion, reflecting light from every angle. Understated elegance and a vintage aesthetic – the Rose-Cut diamond, one of the oldest cuts in the world, brings together these style trends. Flatter than a brilliant cut diamond, and with fewer facets, it has a more delicate shine and glimmers best in low light.

“Rose-cut diamonds are so delicate, almost as if they are floating on the skin. There’s something romantic and feminine about them. Similarly briolette diamonds have a softer look; the way they catch the light is really unusual. With these vintage cuts, it’s more about subtleness, the aesthetic and beauty rather than the bling.”
