I can’t quite believe it, but we are already halfway through 2021 with the longest day of the year earlier this week. And although we have had mixed weather over the last few weeks from blistering sunshine to torrential rain, we are all looking forward to the Summer and hopefully a lot more sunshine, especially since so many of us will be holidaying in the UK.
As we start to lose some of those layers and woolly jumpers, accessories (to me jewellery, of course!) become more and more important as they are on show so much with bare arms, vest T shirts and hair tied up. Every year fashion and style changes with timeless classics being influenced by the catwalks, famous designers and magazine styling. This is true of clothes and of course silver jewellery and keeps our look fresh and exciting.
The jewellery world has come a long way since the days of everyone obsessing over charms or wearing just a single little pendant and pair of stud earrings. We now have vivid colours, bold handmade designs, delicate cubic zirconia jewellery and of course lots of stacking of silver earrings and layering of necklaces and pendants.
So, let us have a little look at some of the key jewellery trends for Summer 21021 so you can liven up that jewellery box and be ready for some fun.
Must-Have Hoop Earrings
Silver hoop earrings are an old and timeless favourite but again are one of the most popular earrings for this summer. Hoops will never be out of fashion because they are so easy to wear, versatile and are the one style of jewellery that complements every face shape. But one size doesn’t fit all, with different shapes, sizes, materials and finishes, there is a hoop for everyone and every occasion.
Choose from bold oversized silver hoops to simple everyday hoops or those set with sparkling cubic zirconia or plated with 18 carat yellow gold. They always complete any look and match pretty much anything you can wear. Hoops also look great stacked with other silver earrings – studs or drop and maybe try some silver huggie earrings which are so popular now. Team with a summer dress or shorts and T shirt to instantly lift your look. Great with short hair or your hair worn up. Try our Supersize Silver Hoops or our Modern Hinged Silver Hoops which are perfect with anything. Texture and mixed metal also add interest to a traditional design, so how about our Silver, Gold & Cubic Zirconia Twist Hoop Earrings.
Beautiful Silver Bangles are Taking Over
Bangles and cuffs are taking over this summer and whether you choose to make a solo statement or stack them on both wrists, there are some wonderful styles to choose from. Whether you want to go plain or glitz, bold or delicate, beautiful bangles are definitely returning. You really can’t go wrong with a bangle either as a gift or as the finishing touch for your look. Great for the Summer with short sleeves and sunkissed arms, they are the perfect day-to-night accessory and one of the top jewellery trends for Summer.
Try an elegant and timeless silver bangle, our Flowing Abstract Silver Cuff, for instance, either on its own for a classic take on the trend or wear multiple at once for more impact. Or, if you are in the market for something bolder, try this beautiful Triple Curve Silver Bangle.
Flower Jewellery Makes a Comeback
If you have any silver flower jewellery hiding in your jewellery box, now is the time to take it out and give it a quick polish, as floral jewellery is definitely in this Summer.
Stay on trend by choosing from our Flower Jewellery Collection – we have a wonderful bold Silver and Cubic Zirconia Daisy Pendant which would make the perfect gift or if you are after something more delicate, maybe a jewellery gift for a teenager – our cute Silver & Turquoise Flower Earrings would be perfect.
Birth flower jewellery is also popular this year, just like birthstones,
flowers that bloom in a particular month, became that month's birth flower. For example, daisies in April, lily of the valley in May and roses for June.
Vintage Jewellery Inspirations
Vintage, retro, antique – whatever you call it, it is very much in fashion from retro furnishings to vintage clothes to antique jewellery. The past continues to influence current fashion and trends and in 2021, more and more women want to add a little bit of vintage style to their look. Genuine antique jewellery is expensive and can be hard to track down so what could be better than beautiful replicas of vintage silver jewellery which look like incredibly expensive heirlooms but are actually very affordable and no one will know the difference!
Choose Cavendish French vintage silver jewellery from across the ages from Romanesque silver crosses to our Georgian inspired cubic zirconia and silver chandelier earrings. Our range of Victorian style jewellery is inspired by their love of all things floral – our Victorian Style Floral Ring is one of my favourites – beautiful detailed design which is micro-set with sparkling cubic zirconia stones and rhodium plated to prevent tarnishing.
Art Deco jewellery remains one of the most desirable vintage styles with geometric shapes and diamonds and gems set in minimalist lines. The designs are effortlessly classic, yet still feel modern. Our Deco Drama Earrings are a wonderful replica and you really cannot tell them from antique originals.
The charm and beauty of this museum jewellery is that there are designs suitable for every age and gift need. You can choose from beautiful Victorian earrings or pendant for your mum or grandmother or a fabulous geometric Art Deco piece for your best friend.
Vintage style Weddings are also very popular at the moment and our Vintage Silver Jewellery provides the perfect wedding Day jewellery, adding that elegant, understated and classic touch. Designs both for the bride and for bridesmaids with many designs available in a range of coloured cubic zirconia stones – from amethyst, to aquamarine and pink diamond.
Chunky Statement Rings
Stacking your rings either on a single finger or across your hand was a big look for 2020 and has continued in 2021 – now however the rings need to be bold – the more sparkle and the more statement rings, the better. Mix colours, metals and textures to create your own individual look and style – great worn with plain coloured clothing so the jewellery is the star of the show. Our Gold Multi Strand Ring would be perfect added into your ring selection.
Cocktail rings worn alone, in all their glory, are also at the front of ring style this year – maybe because we are all so excited to be going out again and having something to dress up for! We love our Vintage Style ring available with a stunning square cut citrine or aquamarine cubic zirconia.
Glitzy Ear Party
One jewellery trend that never seems to fade is sparkling statement earrings and this summer they really are the jewellery piece to own. Whether you choose true ‘red carpet’ style vintage inspired drop earrings or some fabulous, oversized studs – they will add that perfect little bit of glamour to any look.
There is also no maximum to the number of earrings you wear at one time – create the perfect ear party by mixing and stacking your earrings to create your own unique look and style. Why not start low with silver hoops, drop earrings and bigger cubic zirconia studs, and layer up your ear with huggies, smaller stud earrings and cuffs.
Struggling to decide which to wear? Why not wear both? Wearing two differently designed earrings is also a popular trend this year – go extreme with a long drop in one ear and simple pearl stud in the other – or take a look at our Cupid Silver Earrings and our Mismatch Drop Earrings where we do the thinking for you, offering mismatched cubic zirconia and silver earrings as a set.
Tennis Bracelets & Rings
Designed to dazzle, tennis bracelets have been loved for years for their classic and elegant statement of style, and 2021 is no different.
Our silver and cubic zirconia tennis bracelets are always a classic jewellery gift choice. Available with square or round solitaire stones and set in polished silver or plated with 18 carat rose gold. These really are beautifully handmade pieces which are timeless. Maybe the perfect gift for a special birthday or for a wedding day.
There is now a new addition to the tennis bracelet with the tennis ring and although a diamond solitaire engagement ring is always a classic look, a diamond tennis ring is the new on-trend ring. If diamonds are a little out of you price range, then take a look at our Baguette Cut Cubic Zirconia and Silver Ring which is almost indistinguishable from a fine diamond ring.
Hammered Silver Jewellery
Silver does not always have to have a smooth polished finish to attract attention. Indeed, hammering silver can add some definition to a simple design and where polished and hammed are used together, it creates wonderful contrast and emphasises the shape and beauty of the silver jewellery. It is a technique that has been used over the centuries and took the spotlight in a number of designer collections this spring.
Bold handmade silver bangles always make a statement, and our collection has a design and style for everyone – Choose our Slinky Hammered Silver Bangle for maximum impact or maybe the more classic Wide Hammered Silver Bangle is more your look.
Our statement silver necklaces often combine smooth and hammered finishes and look so striking worn with a simple outfit and neckline, so that the jewellery can really be noticed. We also have a wonderful range of copper and silver jewellery, much of which is hand hammered creating depth and interest. With hammered metals, it is the texture that takes centre stage, so if you want to perfect this trend, make sure to choose from our unique selection.
All About Star Jewellery
Star cubic zirconia earrings, silver star necklaces, star bracelets and star silver rings - 2021 is all about the stars. Whether they be bold or delicate, stars are making an appearance in many jewellery designer’s collections and if you want to be up to date – then it is time to look at adding some star jewellery to your jewellery collection or maybe make a gift to someone who is a star in your life. We love our Starry Night Ring or our Shooting Star Necklace is perfect for summer days.
Emerald Green Gems
As the sunshine comes out, it is common for more neutral colours to make way for summery shades such as hot pink and bright orange but this year emerald green is the summer colour trend appearing everywhere from Fashion Week to your Instagram feed – standing out amongst all those blacks and greys.
The 2021 runways were full of this vibrant colour – from full outfits to designer Louis Vuitton handbags. Wearing bright and bold colours can make you feel happier, more positive and definitely more summery. So, whether you want to add just a hint of green or to complete your full on emerald ensemble – we have some beautiful new jewellery designs set with sparkling emerald green cubic zirconia stones. Try our Silver and Emerald Cubic Zirconia Beauty Earrings for that finishing touch or our cute Band Ring which would add that bit of colour to your silver ring stack.
