6 trends from the International Jewellery London and how to wear them

6 trends from the International Jewellery London and how to wear them

Last week was the International Jewellery London show, the industry’s annual event to showcase the up and coming designers, trends and forecasts for the year ahead. IJL’s trend editor, Paola de Luca identified 6 trends that she predicts we will be seeing come spring – from quirky single earrings, to a modern update on a vintage era. The looks were showcased on the catwalk during the 3-day event – here The Collective Boutique creative director, Hanna Nicholson gives her take on how to make the latest jewellery trends wearable next season, plus her pick of the ‘designers to watch’:

Industrial Core
Kimsu, epitomise this first trend for architectural and design-inspired jewellery. ‘Simple, minimalist lines in yellow gold from ‘eco-conscious’ designers’ are Kimsu to a tee.

I'm Perfection
This trend is all about playing with proportions and asymmetry - so wearing one single statement earring (Jennifer Loiselle's drop earrings would be great for this) as well as 'asymmetric rings in yellow and rose gold', which Osylia do so beautifully:

Neo Classic
This trend is all about the pearl - from peachy tones to the dark silvery-black Taithian. You can go mimimal with Jennifer Loiselle's delicate tendril drop earrings, or statement with her Swarovski pearl glitter eye brooches.

Dark Romantic
Drawing inspiration from dark forests, magic and mysticism, this trend blends Art Nouveau with something altogether darker - yet still remains elegant and romantic. Rosita Bonita's 'All seeing eye' earrings are a great nod to this 'Dark Arts' look -

This look is a marriage of Art Deco styling from the 1920s and Optical Art of the 1960s - think geometric patterns, sharp contrasts and a futuristic edge. Our bestseller, super light-weight 'Deco Wing' earrings from Rosita Bonita would work for an on-trend look, perfectly.

Constellation Collective
They say 'Three's a trend' and these three 'moon and star' themed earrings are all perfect to get the 'Constellation' look, which is inspired by all things Space. You can read about our designer, Milk Tooth's latest 'Sphere' collection in our Q&A here, which is full of incredible planetry references.

Designers to watch

The two designers that caught my eye this IJL were Hove-based, Helen Rankin - I love her collection and the architectural influences. She uses an exciting mix of high-tech 3D printing with traditional jewellery craftsmanship to create modern, graphic designs.

Zeemou Zeng's fine jewellery really excited me this season - her use of pearls and the Art Deco influences of her Melody Collection feel iconic and timeless.
