Hottest Jewellery Trends
Amidst the Covid-19 induced gloom of the past two years, jewellery has been a constant bright spark along the way. Indeed, while the industry as a whole has faced many challenges during this time, an increasing number of us have been turning to jewellery, this proving for many to be a satisfyingly forever purchase in a world where foreign travel and eating out has been largely off-limits.
The need for our jewellery items to reflect optimism and joy has never been stronger and while the trend cycle in this sector rotates at a lower speed than in fashion, the shift towards playfulness and electric bold colours is plain for all to see. Bold colour dressing can apply to fine jewellery just as much as to clothing and this is being reflected in the most popular trends since the start of 2022.
Jewellery is generally an emotional purchase, however the key trend in 2022 is for our choices to say more about who we are. Birthstones, zodiac signs and initials are being sprinkled liberally on our fingers, in our ears and around our necks and wrists. People want something a little more akin to a talisman in these still-uncertain times and many customers are looking for something a little different, combined with a little personal familiarity.
The hottest jewellery trend for 2022 has been necklaces and it’s not too hard to see why. After all, this piece can say far more than any other piece of jewellery and it can complement even the most mundane worn garment. A necklace can add a splash of life to any item of clothing and it can really say a lot about the wearer. Indeed as we return to something approaching normality in our everyday lives, the trend has been for more sparkling and colourful jewellery and this has also been reflected in the trend for earrings and timepieces over the past few months.
One large area of growth in this industry has been online sales and while this is entirely understandable following two years of lockdown and restrictions, this trend is continuing on an upward trajectory. Indeed online sales of quality jewellery has been growing unabated for many years and since 2019 this category has gone from strength to strength. Here at hpj.co.uk, our range of stock has increased hugely in order to cater for this increased demand and as such, you can now enjoy a massively increased choice.
