Autumn Jewellery Trends 2021

Autumn Jewellery Trends 2021

Enjoy our comprehensive guide to the latest jewellery trends, covering everything that you need to know about this season.

Throughout 2021, we’ve seen jewellery trends split into two separate camps. On the one side, we have the classics; elegant pieces that will forever look good, and on the other; bolder more riotous pieces that embrace colour and vitality.

Whether you chose to stick solely with what you know, or are open to experimenting with your look, there are plenty of colour and style combinations that will work for you. With that in mind, we’ve spent some time looking at the latest jewellery trends and identified styles that are set to shape autumn 2021 into winter 2022.  

Carefully chosen pieces of jewellery can bring a tired look up to date, with a number of precious stones capable of taking centre stage. These essential accessories provide the final piece in the puzzle that is putting the perfect outfit together. From your Instagram feed to this year’s office Christmas party, our carefully selected autumn jewellery trend ideas will have you looking the part. 

Shorter Pendants

Pendants, particularly diamond ones, are as classic as it gets when it comes to autumn jewellery trends. Where necklaces tend to be long and often more complex, a pendant offers a more refined, simpler look. 

In 2021 we have seen the popularity of pendants soar with the trend of shorter necklaces being influenced by those in Hollywood. Not quite as short as a choker and not as long as a necklace, pendants offer super sophisticated accessories that look great with classic gemstones like diamonds or can be given a vibrant modern twist by incorporating louder, bolder colours like pink sapphire, ruby or emerald.

Pearl Bracelets

Pearls are very much in at the moment, no matter whether you wear them on your ears, around your neck or on your wrist. The ultimate indicator of luxury indulgence, pearls have a vintage appeal that complements a wide range of outfits - particularly if retro-chic is your look.

For the ultimate classic look, opt for a single row of freshwater pearls. Where once these bracelets may have been reserved for your grandma’s collection, pearls saw a resurgence in 2020 that has continued through 2021 and is set to stay with us well into 2022. If you’re looking for something a little different, then why not get yourself a double row pearl bracelet - that combines beauty, elegance and individuality.

Bright Gemstone Rings

The bright colours of gemstones are very much in right now, with many jewellery collections containing charming gemstone rings in particular. A number of high profile designers and influencers have been sporting the gemstone look all year and as we move into the colder months, that’s sure to continue.

The vivid colours of emerald, sapphire, ruby and aquamarine have really come to the fore with jewellery featuring them proving to be popular. It’s the rings, however, that we think are the real highlight of autumn jewellery trends this year.

Cluster Earrings

Another retro jewellery trend that has reemerged recently is large cluster earrings. Inspired by the 80s clip on and hoop designs, there has been a spike in demand for their modernised counterparts. Although hoop earrings have always remained popular and are considered a classic, cluster earrings have traditionally been reserved for special events.

However, they have since made their way into the everyday style of fashion icons both in the UK and across the pond. Because they’re perfect for any occasion, they make a great gift for anyone who values versatility in their jewellery.
