Well, what a year it’s been! At least we’ve had some cracking jewellery trends in 2020 to keep our spirits lifted. And now that Christmas is less than a month away, we want to share our favourites with you. Get ready to look sensational during the holidays – or treat your loved ones with one of these styles. Either way, let these trends inspire you to see 2020 out with a bang.
14 Most Breathtaking Jewellery Trends in 2020
1. Green Onyx
We’re obsessed with all things onyx and everything green so the swathes of green onyx we’ve seen this year earns a thumbs up from us. Onyx is a semi-precious stone that promotes strength and self-confidence whilst green is that rare colour that suits just about anyone. Over the festive season, slip into a pair of green onyx earrings or pop on a green onyx ring for an instant lift.
2. Geometric Shapes
Geometric shapes have led the charge in accessories fashion this year. At Jewel Tree London we have entire collections dedicated to edgy geometric cuts that provide the foundation of a contemporary accessories’ collection. Choose a pair of small stud earrings for a chic, minimalist look.
3. Stackable Rings
Are you the type who struggles to decide which of your rings to wear each day? Then this year’s endorsement of stacking rings means you can wear as many as you like! Mix up your existing collection or rings to create a cool variation of the trend, or treat yourself to some stackable rings.
4. The Solo Earring
Easily one of the most astonishing trends of the year was the single earring. Choose your favourite green onyx earrings, pop one in and leave the other in your jewellery box.
5. Simple Studs
As much as we adore drop earrings and hoops, we love having a few pairs of studs to fall back on. Once you have a go-to pair of small stud earrings in your collection, you are ready for anything.
6. Handmade Designs
Handmade jewellery is durable, unique, and supports local designers. So we love that this year consumers have opted for handcrafted over mass-produced pieces. At Jewel Tree London every single piece that we create is made by hand, with love.
7. Layered Necklaces
Layering a few different necklaces of varying lengths is an awesome way to inject some zest into your look. We’ve seen fashionistas pairing snug chokers with naval skimming opera chains and mixing up chunkier pieces.
8. Gold Vermeil
If you’re lusting after gold but can’t justify the price tag then gold vermeil is your solution. By plating a thick layer of molten gold over sterling silver, a set of gold vermeil stackable rings will last for years. 2020 has been a great year for gold vermeil with innovative handmade designs leading the way.
9. Everyday Objects
Models have strolled down the runways all year with some familiar items hanging from their ears. The autumn show from Fendi saw women sporting everything from touch screen pens to safety pins in their lobes. Well, we do love to multi-task.
10. Rose Gold
Effortlessly elegant and devastatingly romantic, rose gold adds a gentle polish to your ensemble. And this year, the world caught on to the power of rose gold! At Jewel Tree London all our pieces are available in rose gold as well as silver sterling and gold.
11. Mixing Metals
2020 finally saw the end of the taboo about mixing metals. The trick to this trend is finding equilibrium in your cocktail of metal tones, and only mix two metals in one go.
12. Semi-Precious Gemstones
If the likes of rubies and sapphires and diamonds are out of your jewellery budget, this year semi-precious gemstones saw a rise! Add a pop of colour with some red or green onyx earrings or find a stone that is exactly your favourite shade.
13. Oversized Hoops
Hoop earrings are an essential piece in any jewellery box. This year it’s been all about large, chunky, oversized hoops. The more textured the design the better.
14. Statement Rings
Exactly how much of a statement you want to make is up to you. Perhaps it’s a large design, an oversized gemstone, or a head-turning green onyx ring. Whatever you do, you’ll leave a lasting impression.
