Jewelry Trends the British Way

necklaceBrits are jewelry trendsetters

There’s something endearingly sophisticated about British culture, with our overseas sister nation’s ambience of castles and crowns, teashops and towers. So it is no surprise that the Brits aren’t shying away from being trendsetters in everything fashion – and fine jewelry is no exception. If you’re looking for some global inspiration for your jewelry collection this coming year, you can always turn to the experts at F. Silverman Jewelers in Montvale, New Jersey.

Reimagine the traditional look of pearls

There are a few looks that will never go out of style, no matter which calendar is currently on the wall. Pearls most definitely have this distinction. The classic strand of pearls draped around the neck is equally at home at a wedding, funeral, or an upscale dinner party. But now, the Brits have been busy making pearls even more versatile than they already were. Instead of a strand of pearls, try a sculptural ring set with an elegant pearl. Small pearls can grace a contemporary ear cuff.

Or, do as Kate Middleton does and embrace the look of pearls as drop earrings. Duchess Kate has been spotted with a pair of Baroque Pearl Drops by famed jewelry designer Annoushka Ducas of the brand Annoushka, based in London. In an interview with E! News, Annoushka stated regarding Kate Middleton, “Her taste in jewelry is very elegant and contemporary—she loves drop earrings and is not afraid of color.”

Your style, personalized

You might have noticed fashion-forward folks wearing monogrammed accessories or personalized jackets lately. Personalized jewelry, known for its emergence during the 70s, is making a comeback for 2017. Personalized jewelry allows the wearer to truly express herself. It’s an emotive way to make a statement. Plus, personalizing jewelry enhances budget-friendly, fashion jewelry.

Enamel-enhanced fine jewelry

The fusion of brightly colored, liquid glass to metals was a prized technique of the Persians in long ago eras. Now, it’s closely associated with the brilliant, dynamic jewels of Meenakari and Amrapali of India. Look for these eye-catching pieces to make waves in London in 2017. Several fine jewelry brands have embraced this innovative technique, including Noor Fares and Alice Cicolini.

Enamel enhancement graces elegant necklaces, bracelets, and hoop earrings. The base is often gold, but many pieces are silver instead. This base metal can be paired with every color of the rainbow – from jade and turquoise to coral and tangerine.
