When news of Mette-Marit, Crown Princess and heir apparent to the throne of Norway, hit the press wearing Mimi Scholer’s Fringe Earrings, we were over the moon. It’s so refreshing to see royals mixing up their sparkle repertoire with demi-fine jewelry that’s awe-inspiring yet affordable. Just goes to show that not all statement pieces need to be gilded with 24k gold and encrusted in precious stones for them to shine at a stately affair.

Spring/Summer 2021 Jewelry Trends

If you are a bona fide sparkle addict, then you’ll know how difficult it is to select the prefect piece of jewelry online in the UAE with all the options out there – especially when you want them ALL. Which is why it helps to know which trends are on their way out and which ones are going to put you on top of your sparkle influencer game. Here’s a look at what’s hot on the runways this Spring/Summer!

Paint a rainbow

We don’t know about you, but we’re still feeling the effects of the past year and then some. It’s high-time we added some color back into our lives with eye-catching handcrafted jewelry. And delicious juicy beads are the way a certified sparkle addict would do it! If it’s good enough for Versace & Valentino, it’s good enough for us, plus it makes our zoom meetings a heck of a lot snazzier.

Chain links

You don’t have to ask twice if you can chain us up. From chunky to delicate & from head to toe, this trend has been a constant throughout collections. Take a page out of the bejeweled books of Louis Vuitton & Hermès and even Posh Spice – that’s Victoria Beckham for you kids!

Silver sparkles

Gold has had the limelight for a while, but it looks like silver is making a comeback and not a minute too soon! Chloé & Louis Vuitton are all for slapping thick sterling chain links on your wrists, but why stop there? Extend your silver streak to chunky hoops & layered necklaces.

Mismatched & Mixed up

Sounds like everyone’s state of mind last year, which may be why it’s being expressed on the runways today. Valentino & Ulla Johnson have tossed paired earrings out the window and are hailing the asymmetrical look. While Dior & Zimmermann are going ga-ga for mixed-media collectible jewelry with shells, stones & coins – you know, the stuff you collect on the beach!

Pile on the pearls

And last, but not least, the ever-chic timeless classic – Ze Pearl! From prim and proper to perfectly imperfect, this trend has been huge and is still going strong. We love it on our ears, as neck candy, on our wrists and feet – and don’t have to worry about getting them wet. The perfect summer beach accessory if you ask us.

Expert styling tips from our designers

Perhaps, like us, you knew very early on in life that you were sparkle obsessed or maybe you were a late bling bloomer. No matter what luminous life cycle you find yourself in, it always helps to get top tips on which accessories to wear with what, how to make your jewelry work for you and which styles suit you best. It’s even better when the tips come from bona fide jewelry designers!

STACK YOUR RINGS

This tip is the G.O.A.T. because we love nothing more than piling on jewelry. Thankfully you can easily do that with affordable luxury accessories. It works especially well with rings, allowing you to explore a number of new and varied looks with the same selection. Katy Valentine suggests wearing several rings together to create a richer expression of color and beauty. It doesn’t end there! If you’re blessed with multiple piercings, there’s nothing stopping you from applying the same idea to your earrings.

LAYER IT UP

Take the obsession up a notch and layer your bangles, bracelets and necklaces! Throw together your delicate cuffs or wear them bold and proud. Experiment with contrasting necklace lengths to jazz up an ordinary outfit like Mayol loves to do. If you’re too nervous about making a faux pas, grab a necklace that’s already layered and take the hassle out of the equation.

STAPLE OR STATEMENT? WHEN TO WEAR WHAT

When we asked Shelly Dahari for jewelry advice, she pointed us to her versatile White Shell Necklace-Bracelet. Why? Because it goes beautifully with a pantsuit for the office and just as perfectly with a cocktail dress. You can also get plenty of mileage out of it as a necklace and a bracelet, making it a great example of essential demi-fine jewelry. Now statement pieces on the other hand should be worn more selectively as they tend to steal the limelight from your outfit. So, if you want to elevate a plain t-shirt and jeans or make that little black dress pop, then your bet is on something flamboyant and distinctive.
