The word “jewel” easy recalls the word “joy”. Indeed, what is joy if not something absolutely precious and important for all women? Jewels are most often seen as just accessories. However, they have a deeper and more important value in various different spheres.
In fact, in ancient times, wearing jewelry was like carrying a real trophy with you. It was exhibited to all as a sign of magnificence, grandeur and success. The “trophy” function was truly the ultimate representation of one’s status symbol. But jewels also represent beauty and creativity. Metaphorically, they release our will to free ourselves from all that is bad and negative, to leave us a super positive mind-set.
But what are the jewelry trends for this year’s autumn-winter? It is not always easy to readjust the jewels we see on the catwalks of fashion weeks into everyday life. In this article, we try to reinterpret these trends, in order to always show off new looks.
Chandelier earrings are drop earrings, made to reach almost to the shoulders. That’s why they are called that, because they resemble a chandelier. This type of earrings has ancient origins. These pendants were born in the Middle East, but only thanks to the British and the French have they spread to the West. Subsequently, these earrings have undergone changes, thus giving rise to different variations. Today they are shorter, and embellished with stones or diamonds. But they remain very showy earrings. Because of their importance, they are suitable for evenings or for important occasions.
Sautoir necklaces and chain jewelry
The sautoir necklaces come directly from the 1920s and 1930s. They are very long necklaces, often enriched by a pendant at the bottom and in the shape of a tassel.
For those who love something different, another trend that continues even after the summer is the chain necklace. With a wide or thick chain, more rigid or thinner, this necklace brings back a vintage style. It is ertainly more suitable for everyday life. To complete the look, you can also combine earrings or bracelets.
For this season, we can indulge ourselves in combining rings of different shapes and colors on the same hand or finger. To create more and more volume, rings defined as “mid fingers” remain in vogue, ie those that can be worn in the middle of the finger.
3 recommendations on how to wear jewelry during the winter
Beware of scarves or turtleneck sweaters. It may happen that the earrings (especially the dangling ones) get caught, risking damaging the fabrics or getting hurt by moving.
If you are a lover of heavy wool sweaters, try to avoid thin pendants and bracelets, so as not to have the same problem as above. In this case, there is even the risk of losing the jewel.
Housework is a constant in every season, but in winter you are usually in a hurry and you can forget to remove the rings from your hands. It is very important to remember to remove them, since the detergents and chemicals with which you clean can damage the metal of your jewelry.
