We’ve searched low and high and have found nine winter jewellery trends in Australia right now.
Whether you like to stick to what’s trending or not, we think it’s worth keeping an eye on trends, while also being sure to pay attention to your own unique identity and sense of style.
While we’re by no means slaves to fashion, getting new ideas and inspiration is always a handy when it comes to your styling up your wardrobe and jewellery collection.
Here’s the lowdown on what we’ve noticed is having a moment right now.
1. BEADED JEWELLERY
In case you hadn’t noticed, the 1990s trend of beaded jewellery is back and we never stopped loving it!
Known in the United States as ‘summer camp’ jewellery, who doesn’t love a roundabout moment in the fashion world?
If you’re looking to go with a current trend but with a little more sophistication and incorporating your own unique sense of style, then beaded jewellery will be your friend.
Beads are also a great way to add some colour to your jewellery collection too, whether subtle or bold.
We stock a range of beads, pearls, gemstones and beading supplies in store and online, shop here.
2. BOLD PENDANT NECKLACES
Popular back in the 1970s, large and bold pendants have now resurfaced.
The bigger and the bolder means the better and the more desirable with pendant necklaces right now!
Perfect for winter larger pendants with contrast beautifully with warmer coloured clothing.
You can wear them with a long chain or go for shorter chokers with pendants for higher necked outfits, perfect!
3. PEARL JEWELLERY, DARLING
Are pearls ever out of fashion? The short answer is: no they are timeless darlings!
Pearls are forever a perfect addition to your jewellery collection, but if you were unsure about pearls in this day and age, they are definitely having a moment right now.
You can even pair them with seed beads for another trend which is popping off right now, check out a local mother-daughter duo in Perth, Tiger Mimi.
4. NATURE JEWELLERY
On the topic of natural elements such as pearls, another big trend we can expect to see in 2022 is the incorporation of natural elements into jewellery pieces.
This includes a resurgence in jewellery with gemstones, seaside-inspired pieces using shells, as well as intricately woven pieces made from raw, natural fibres.
We sell a range of seashells and puka shells in store, shop at Myare today.
This is another 90s throwback which we are loving and charms are all the rage right now.
Look out for charms on bracelets, earrings, and necklaces and in particular, tiny charms added to huggie-style earrings as well.
Popular charm options include zodiac signage, shells, pearls, lockets, gemstone pendants, and more.
6. STATEMENT EARRINGS
If you’re not a fan of wearing too many elements of jewellery at once, then this trend is for you.
The statement earring in the form of fringe, chain, or long and dangly numbers is back.
Big, bold and unusual statement earrings are often best worn without a necklace, meaning they’ll work beautifully in winter when you’re wearing higher necklines and scarves.
Bold earrings also draw the eye to your face, so they’re great for when you really want someone to be paying attention to you.
7. LAYERING JEWELLERY
Another trend coming back to us, this time from the early 2000s, is necklace layering, especially with longer necklaces.
This year, these necklaces are on the daintier side, being far thinner than their previous counterparts.
Some popular necklace styles include long charm pieces or lariat necklaces, in silver or even mixed metals.
8. THUMB RINGS
Statement rings and ring stacking have both been trends that have stood the test of time over the past few years.
While ring stacking is still ever-popular, the statement thumb ring is a trend you can expect to see this year.
In fact, you can expect to see bejewelled thumb rings make an entrance, those with chain and pearl detail for an edgier touch.
9. MIXED METALS
Precious metals are eternally prized for their quality, colour and for being long lasting pieces of jewellery to invest in.
This year is no different, of course, but you should feel more comfortable with mixing different metals rather than sticking to just one.
This trend has been bubbling away for a while now and we’re definitely fans of it.
