Hello, sun. We’ve been missing you. We’re enthusiastically anticipating a brighter, more assertive spring and an eventful year after what seemed like an endless winter. So what better way to kick off the season than with something truly special—the hottest jewelry trends to give our outfits a fresh look.
The ready-to-wear runways for S/S ’23 may have provided us with all the ideas we need for the upcoming six months, but it is indisputable that the jewelry we choose to wear says just as much about who we are and our sense of style as the clothes we wear.
While a wonderful pair of shoes or a designer handbag can become an intrinsic part of your wardrobe for a time, nothing rivals the timeless quality and sentimentality imbued in a treasured piece of jewellery,” note Rosanna and Christie Wollenberg, the sister partnership behind fine jewellery brand Otiumberg.
“Beyond the sentimental aspect, jewellery is a form of self expression that almost becomes a second skin. We design jewellery with a timeless perspective that complements the wearer’s personal style and we love jewellery that can be worn everyday, stacked or combined to elevate a simple outfit from desk to dinner, creating a polished outfit with ease.
And it’s true that there is something uniquely special about jewellery’s ability to transform a look. Take for example the shoulder-skimming earrings at Proenza Schouler S/S ’23, paired simply with a bare décolletage. Or perhaps, the chunky silver chokers at the A/Z Factory show that stood out against the simple, monochrome looks.
“I feel like this spring is a season of two moods: there is a hearty dose of fun in the jewellery that we’re seeing on the runway and in the street, but there’s an equal sense of moody sophistication and a touch of grunge in this season’s collections.” adds Rosie Lillis, Founder of Rosie Lillis Communications,
