On Trend - A Golden Summer

By Amanda Evans 3 Minute Read

Our jewellery buyers continue to have their fingers on the pulse when it comes to keeping up with trends and exploring innovative techniques and emerging styles.


This year they joined 30,000 industry professionals in Las Vegas at one of the world’s most coveted global gatherings for the jewellery industry, where luxury jewellery and trends unite to inspire our Mappin & Webb collections.

In the ever-changing landscape of fashion and style, one thing remains constant - the timeless allure of gold jewellery. For centuries, gold has captivated the hearts of people around the world, transcending cultural boundaries and economic disparities. Even in the fast-paced digital era, the trend of gold jewellery continues to flourish, affirming its status as a symbol of opulence, elegance, and tradition.

The Golden Era

Whilst fashion trends come and go, gold jewellery has demonstrated an exceptional ability to adapt and reinvent itself. Designers continually explore innovative techniques, marrying contemporary styles with traditional craftsmanship to create stunning gold jewellery that appeals to a broader audience. This adaptability ensures gold jewellery remains relevant, no matter the prevailing fashion climate.

With gold jewellery designs to appeal to all tastes and styles, from understated and classic to sparkly and bold, the opportunities are endless to create your own unique look. Among the numerous trends that have graced the jewellery scene, layering and stacking have also emerged as timeless techniques that can transform your appearance from ordinary to extraordinary.

The Art of Styling

The key to successful layering lies in balancing various lengths, textures, and styles. Delicate chains paired with statement pieces, such as pendants or charms, can add depth and intrigue to any neckline. To create a cohesive look, consider sticking to a particular metal colour or theme, ensuring that the pieces complement rather than overpower one another.

When it comes to necklaces, layering works best with varying chain lengths. Start with a choker or a shorter necklace as your base, followed by a slightly longer one, and then another, gradually cascading downwards. This technique draws attention to the collarbone and adds a touch of elegance to your overall appearance. Don’t shy away from experimenting with different pendant shapes and sizes, as these add a unique flair to your ensemble.

While layering primarily focuses on necklaces, stacking revolves around adorning the wrists and fingers with multiple bracelets and rings. Stacking bracelets can create a chic and bohemian look. Mix and match bangles, cuffs, and delicate bracelets, incorporating different colours, materials, and textures to infuse your personality into the arrangement. For a minimalist yet sophisticated look, opt for delicate uniform chains or something with a glint of sparkle.

And not forgetting of course – ear curation. Huggie hoops come in all shapes and sizes and rectangular cuts are proving really popular with their geometric and unconventional shape. Styled with diamond drop baguette huggies, they make the perfect pairing.

This Summer, add to your jewellery wardrobe and stay on trend with gold jewellery and layering – they’ve been present for some time now and show no signs of falling out of favour. Every day is an opportunity to unleash your creativity with a fresh look that will make a lasting impression.
