Silver jewellery has eclipsed gold as the hottest metal to wear this season | Source: Tiffany & Co Instagram
While the last few years have seen our jewellery boxes brimming with chunky gold rings, necklaces and earrings, there’s a new metal that threatens to eclipse gold’s reign. And though it may be synonymous with second place, silver is scoring points as this season’s hottest jewellery trend.
This year’s silver jewellery trend combines not only fashion’s current crush on nineties and noughties nostalgia, but also our obsession with futuristic and space-age styles. So forget the dainty, micro jewels and instead accessorise yourself in chunky silver charms.
If you’re worried this means your collection of gold jewellery is now out of date, fear not, all that glitters is still gold. Simply consider the rise in silver jewellery as a shift towards mixed metals, and an acceptance of edgy styling, rather than the sleek minimalism that has dominated our Instagram feeds for so long.
We’ve rounded up our pick of the best silver jewellery to add to your rotation.
Hermès Chaine D’ancre Pendant
The signature Hermès Clou de Selle is more than just a detail, it serves as a guarantee of a high-quality saddle. The element appears throughout many of the house’s designs, and here it delicately adorns the Confettis collection on a necklace.
Georg Jensen Mercy Hinged Bangle
Designed by Jacqueline Rabun, a long-time Georg Jensen collaborator known for her organic and emotionally charged jewellery, the Mercy Hinged Bangle is a powerful and expressive piece of jewellery. The opening in the bangle serves as a reminder to take stock once in a while, and think about where you are in life.
