Whilst jewellery trends come and go, classic and timeless pieces will never be out of fashion.

The jewellery you wear can quickly become a reflection of your personality and an intricate part of your personal style.

After all, when we watch Sex and the City, we know Carrie wouldn’t be Carrie without her Carrie necklace, and Paul Mescals’s simple chain in Normal People became more famous than he did, causing a generation of men to start wearing jewellery again.

So, what is your jewellery style?

And what does the jewellery you wear say about you? To help you find the perfect everyday pieces for you, here are three classic and timeless jewellery essentials to add to your wishlist:

Simple Chains, Layered

The layered necklace trend has been around for years, but its popularity shows no sign of waning. What we love about this trend is that it’s so easy to adapt to suit any situation.

If you’re after a subtle look or want to be understated for a formal occasion then you can wear just one or two chains or if you want to make a big impact or create a high-fashion look then you could layer a dozen.

We love the chains available from Oak and Luna Fashion Jewellery, which were made to be layered. Each piece is elevated with small charms, gemstones, or initials, allowing you to layer them together and create a look that is truly unique to you.

Classic Name Necklaces

One piece of jewellery that you can invest in now and that you’ll never regret buying is the classic name necklace. The name necklace, featuring a nameplate written in simple script, was first made famous by Carrie Bradshaw in the original six series of Sex and the City.

Now that the reboot has arrived and the series is back, so is the necklace it made famous! Sales of name necklaces have already started to soar, with fans of the original show dusting off the pieces they have been storing for decades. If it was ever gone, then the name necklace is back, and it seems clear that it’s here to stay.


Bling, Bling, Cocktail Ring

They may not be understated, but cocktail rings are also having a resurgence, and the bigger and brighter the stones, the better! What makes these pieces so classic and timeless is that they seem to become popular again every holiday season, and they look fantastic paired with party dresses in every style and colour.

The cocktail ring is the easiest way to wear an oversized stone, so if you love colour and would like to inject it into your jewellery box then this is route to choose.

To ensure timeless appeal, when choosing a cocktail ring you should look for something with clean lines, excellent clarity, and shy away from trends and fads that will be out of vogue this time next year. The key is to fall in love with a piece that you know you’ll want to wear over and over again.
