With the Resort 2018 designer fashion shows having just taken place, everyone is keen to know what trends lie ahead for the coming year in the world of fashion and accessories. Team Neola have compiled the upcoming jewellery trends that are sure to be a hit this summer through until S/S 18.
The Next Frontier/ A Retro Future
Galactic, abstract and geometric shapes and clean-cut lines are paving the way for the futuristic jewellery trend seen on the catwalks. This trend incorporates a retro feel with 1960’s-inspired conceptions of space interpreted through orb spheres, asymmetrical lines and celestial shapes.
Neola’s take on the intergalactic trend ensures this style remains wearable and chic. We suggest the Lunaria, Aurea and Neringa styles. Each contemporary design perfectly incorporates stylish geometric curves, lines and shapes.
Top to Bottom: Lunaria ring (18ct Rose Gold Vermeil Blue Topaz), Aurea ring (18ct Gold Vermeil Grey Pearl), Neringa ring (18ct Rose Gold Vermeil White Topaz and Sterling Silver Black Onyx).
Handmade / Ethical Individuality
An ethical and sustainable trend that is set to grow from strength to strength, handmade craftsmanship using only the highest quality sought materials is more than just a style; it’s a principle. At Neola, our philosophy embodies ethically made jewellery adhering to strict fair-trade guidelines. Each of our pieces are unique and focus on the individuality that makes each of us different.
We’ve selected our favourite pieces that are the epitome of individuality and are perfectly unique.
Top to Bottom: Enigma bracelet (Sterling Silver), Geo Ring (18ct Gold Vermeil and Sterling Silver), Geo Long Necklace (18ct Gold Vermeil and Solid Sterling Silver).
True Romance / Feminine Romance
For those who prefer subtlety, this trend is perfect for you. Ladylike and glamorous, this style plays with soft hues and glamorous pearls that echo sophistication and class. This “less is more” trend encompasses dainty and simple line bracelets and botanical and floral motifs that ooze minimalism and sophistication.
Our Tree of Life bracelets are the ideal match for this romantic trend, as are our Minerva pearl earrings and rings. Each of these pieces exudes femininity and are a great way of embracing this trend whilst being timeless.
Top to Bottom: Tree Friendship bracelet (Small and Large, 18ct Gold Vermeil), Tree Friendship bracelet (Large, 18ct Rose Gold Vermeil, Sterling Silver and 18ct Gold Vermeil), Minerva Pearl earrings (Sterling Silver Grey Pearl, 18ct Gold Vermeil White Pearl and 18ct Rose Gold Vermeil Grey Pearl).
Statement / Bold Brilliance
Drawing inspiration from summer, bold statement accessories show no sign of fading. We’re talking large hoops, art deco chandelier earrings, chunky bangles and cocktail rings which are set to be eye-catching and the centre of attention. This trend is perfect for reflecting big personalities and capturing the spotlight.
We recommend our Celestine Cocktail rings which come in a range of metal and gemstone finishes, perfect for any and every occasion. We also think our Equilibrium bangles and Charleston earrings make for perfect partners. The bolder the better!
Gemstones / Glamorous Gemstones
A splash of vibrant colour remains a key trend for summer and the upcoming seasons. Colourful gemstones are a popular choice for all styles and personalities. This year saw an emphasis on shades of green with Pantone’s colour of the year being “Greenery”. All variants of green from striking Emerald to serene Jade and zesty green Amethyst to fresh Chrysoprase; this year is ideal for injecting lush green tones into your accessory game.
Our Estella Drop Earrings in Green Amethyst and Green Onyx pay homage to the Pantone trend perfectly. We also recommend our Estella Duo ring which come in an array of strikingly beautiful different gemstones.
Each of these jewellery trends are expected to heavily influence the fashion world. Let us know which trend is your favourite, happy shopping x
