Jewellery Predictions

Looking ahead, the future of jewellery trends promises to be just as intriguing as the treasures of the past! Here are our predictions for which vintage gems are going to be at the forefront of fashion:

The New Heirloom

In an era where self-expression and sustainability intertwine, a new trend is emerging: the rise of the new heirloom. More than just a fashion statement, it’s about investing in pieces of timeless beauty and craftsmanship that hold personal significance and can be cherished for generations to come.

From vintage diamond necklaces to heirloom-quality emerald earrings, individuals are embracing the allure of vintage jewellery with the intention of creating their own legacy. These pieces, steeped in tradition, history and craftsmanship, evoke a sense of nostalgia and glamour unlike any modern jewellery piece. But it’s not just about the aesthetics; it’s also a conscious shift towards mindful consumption. In an age where authenticity reigns supreme, owning a piece of history that can be enjoyed now and passed down as a cherished heirloom holds unparalleled appeal!

Conscious Carats

Move over lab-grown diamonds, we’re taking it back to the OGs! Lab grown diamonds have taken the industry by storm as the sustainable choice, but did you know by turning to pre-loved and vintage gemstones, you’re giving these treasures a second lease of life whist also reducing your environmental footprint. We predict a turn towards consumers seeking antique and vintage gemstones as opposed to adding to new consumption cycles.

Diamond Brooches

Diamond Brooches

Speaking of conscious carats, diamond brooches are definitely the way to go. As the latest trend for statement jewellery continues to gain momentum, diamond brooches stand out as both a fashion-forward choice and a wise investment due to their high diamond content. Brooches can be cherished as family heirlooms or, as taste and style evolves, their diamonds can be repurposed into new creations, ensuring that their beauty and value endure for years to come.

Natural Marine

We’re seeing aquatic elements making waves on the horizon for the future! With trends moving towards shell jewellery, we predict vintage pearls coming to the forefront of accessories. Blister pearls have a beautifully unique and naturalistic texture, making pieces like this platinum drop earring a potential mermaids dream!

As fashion moves towards shell jewellery, we suspect a gradual revival in a more refined style; the carved shell brooch. Victorian carved shell brooches are beautifully romantic and capture intricate detail that any collector can appreciate!
