Top winter jewellery styles that look hot

Fashion shows have been predicting distinct trends for winter 2017 and catwalks around the world have highlighted the return of some classic old favourites as well as new emerging fashions.

If you’re wondering what’s hot this season, here are the top five winter jewellery styles for 2017:

Pearls are in vogue

Many people would argue that pearls never went out of style, but after being featured in so many designer collections this classic gem is well and truly fashionable again.

On the catwalks, pearls are mainly being worn in necklaces; however, there’s no need to limit your imagination: pearls look fabulous as earrings, bracelets and rings – and even in more unusual pieces like anklets.

Rough stones

Rough or raw stones, or stones that are in their natural state, are also set to dominate winter jewellery. Unpolished gems have been in several top designers’ collections and they’re readily available from independent retailers too.

With a vast selection of stones to choose from, unpolished gems offer plenty of variety – you can keep them simple or make them as eye-catching as you wish.

Punk is back

The trend that became famous in the 70s is ready for another resurgence this winter.

The choker chain is the simplest punk choice for winter, but you can add earrings and necklaces.

Choker chains are also being used as statement jewellery, so if you don’t want to adopt the punk trend, you can go for a classier, more sophisticated style, and still be in fashion.

Cocktail rings

Winter is party season for most of us and we’ll all be dressing up, so it shouldn’t be surprising that the cocktail ring is popular again this winter.

It’s a simple but effective way to make a statement that allows you to be as elaborate or as subtle as you choose. Select diamonds, rubies or even emeralds for a cold weather theme that will add sparkle to any outfit.

Jewellery inspired by Nature

It seems more of us feel the need to get back to nature, and that is also reflected in winter fashions this year.

Flowers, trees and animals all form part of jewellery design, however you can also go for classic green gems like emeralds, garnet and jade to represent natural shades – or even opt for an organic gemstone.


The catwalks have predicted some exciting new trends for winter 2017, along with the revival of firm favourites. And whether you prefer your jewellery dressier or more relaxed in style, they’ll be a something that suits you this season.
