The 5 Must-Have Jewellery Styles You Need

Create your core collection with these timeless styles.

Fine jewellery is designed to be treasured and worn time and time again. We’ve put together an edit of the top five must-have jewellery styles, that will help you create a timeless and versatile jewellery wardrobe to elevate every look and every occasion.

1. A versatile chain

A chain necklace is a cornerstone piece for every jewellery wardrobe. Simple and versatile, a classic chain will bring shine to every look. With a wide variety of chain styles, weights, and lengths to choose from, you can find the perfect one for your style – explore our full chains range online.

2. A classic diamond style

Your ultimate must-have when you need a quick way to elevate your look or add a little brightness, is a piece of diamond jewellery. Classic yet modern diamond styles – such as a pair of solitaire earrings, a pendant, or earrings in a chic and simple design – are perfect for everyday luxe. Styles like these can be worn alone for effortless sparkle, or layered with your favourite gold or silver jewellery.

3. A personalised piece

Personalised jewellery is always on trend, as it’s a great way to express a part of yourself through the precious pieces you wear each day. Adopt the trend and wear it always, with zodiac jewellery, initial jewellery (featuring a letter for your own name or that of a loved one), your birthstone, or engravable jewellery.

4. Stackable rings

One of the biggest trends in jewellery is stacked rings. But far from being a passing trend, stackable rings allow you to curate a look that’s unique to you and expresses your personal taste – meaning they will never go out of style. If you already have a ring or rings you like to wear every day, try stacking an additional complementary one to make your look a little bolder. If you’re just beginning your ring collection, a dome ring, textured ring, or a simple band in your favourite precious metal are great options to start with.

5. A statement style

An eye-catching jewellery style is all you need to take any look to the next level. The best part is that you can wear your statement jewellery piece again and again, any time you want to add an extra special element to your look or make a favourite outfit feel like new. Try a bold diamond ring or gemstone ring, a pair of statement hoop or drop earrings, a sparkling bracelet, or a bold chain necklace for inspiration.
