No matter the outfit, it could be a festival co-ord set, a party dress for a baby shower or a detailed lace blouse with tailored trousers for work, jewellery adds style, interest and often that last finishing touch. And this is exactly why we adore jewellery so much at VK Jewellery.
Earrings, bracelets, necklaces and exquisite body chains — there is so much to choose from. It doesn’t matter who your style influences are, jewellery doesn’t discriminate!
As we head into (hopefully) sunny days filled with iced coffee, sunglasses and flights to the Maldives, it’s time to freshen up your accessories for the summer. Straight from the 2022 runways, we’ve got some of the top summer jewellery trends to share with you alongside a few of our favourite pieces!
1. Silver’s making a comeback
It’s never really been ‘out of fashion’ per se, but silver jewellery is back. We like to think of it as gold’s edgy alternative, and we’re rightfully obsessed. Movements like modernism have taken silver jewellery to the next level, dressing up simple metals and focusing on sculptural designs, rather than bold, extravagant pieces.
2022’s summer trend is teenage nostalgia. Think silver charm bracelets and classic 90’s vibes. One of our favourite stylish throwbacks is this Isadora Pink Bracelet with a silver lock and cotton wristband. You can also buy it in blue, red, off-white, and purple — ideal for casual layering for a beach day.
We’ve got a few more classic silver pieces to share with you. These are timeless accessories that can be worn time and time again, and never lose their shine. This chunky, minimal Sempre Silver Ring makes a striking statement. Either wear it alone or stack it with other rings. Paired with a cute sundress and sandals for a day trip, it’s almost dreamy!
Another simple, elegant piece is our Sempre Silver Ear Cuff (it matches the ring) which can be worn as a single or a pair to add extra detail to your whole look. The best part is you don’t even need to have your ears pierced to style these. We recommend wearing silver jewellery if your clothes feature bold colours or patterns — a minimalist approach is key!
Chunky chains are here to stay
We truly can’t pick a favourite out of these trends. Here’s another one we love — chunky chains. You’ll spot these everywhere, even on bags and shoes. The chunky chain trend is perfect for everyone, whether you’re dressed for a glam night out or a day trip to another city. The style is a must-have accessory in your summer jewellery collection.
A chunky gold chain like this Notte Necklace worn with a crisp white high-neck t-shirt is a cool casual look. You can also get this necklace in Silver if you’re more of a silver kinda gal. Chunky chains are not just for necklaces. Our vibrant Notte Bracelets in either Silver or Gold are the perfect matching element to our chunky necklaces. Its unique water swirl design on every second chain link is what makes these stand out the most.
You can master two jewellery trends in one by layering up your chunky chains. We’re not newcomers to this trend either — we have a blog post on how to wear layered necklaces if you want some style inspiration. Doubling up your chunky chains creates a statement look without going too overboard. You can play around with different lengths and pendants to enhance your outfit too.
Chokers are in
The Y2K style is absolutely everywhere at the minute. High street retailers have jumped on the 90’s trend and so have some of the internet’s favourite influencers. Back and bigger than ever, is the choker.
We’re swapping minimalist for maximalist for this back-from-the 90’s fashion craze. Famous faces including the likes of Rihanna and Bella Hadid have been spotted wearing extravagant, jewelled chokers to complete their look. That said, at VK Jewellery we’ve decided to go low-key with our chokers so that you can easily layer different necklaces.
Our Mila 18K Gold Choker featuring a few details and gemstones, it’s simple and radiant, making it a great item to start off with. There are so many ways to make this summer trend personal to you. From cute pastel velvet chokers made and dark, gothic designs with studs and spikes, to uncomplicated minimalist ones and bejewelled styles, these are set to be the latest accessory on everyone’s necks this summer.
