Winter Jewellery Trends

At Banks Lyon, we are fascinated by what is trending in the world of jewellery, fashion, and accessories. We see trends come and go, but we are always interested in what sticks around and becomes a staple. Often, trends are driven by the seasons, with big fashion houses and jewellers presenting their looks for the next season ahead of time, which then informs other designers to make moves in accordance with what has been popular.

This winter has seen a variety of jewellery trends, from the big and loud to the small and dainty, and so we thought we would take a look into some of these styles. The season isn’t over yet, and we believe many of these pieces will stick around, so sit back and take note of your favourite items as we explore this year’s winter jewellery trends.

Chunky Chains and Bold Links

One of the biggest trends we have seen during winter so far is chunky chains and bold links. Their assertive size and thickness have a boldness that demands immediate attention. While many people might shy away from something so loud, these pieces are unexpectedly versatile and can complement any outfit. In fact, these are not the statement necklaces you may be thinking of; they are actually rather simple and minimalistic but provide maximum impact. Essentially, chunky chains and bold links transform your look with a focal point without overwhelming your individual style.

Layered Necklaces

Layering up in winter isn’t just about your clothing. In fact, we have found layered necklaces to be an incredibly popular choice for jewellery lovers this season. While this is a trend that comes and goes, by tiering, you create depth, which is an ideal aesthetic in the colder months. One of the best things about this trend is that it is so versatile and embodies an elegant combination of both new and old pieces. Don’t forget about your cherished vintage necklaces. Instead, incorporate them into layered styles alongside your newer pendants and necklaces to create a unique and sentimental overall look.

Frosty Whites and Cool Blues

In terms of colour, a duo of hues that will never go out of style during winter is frosty white and cool blue. These shades reflect the beauty of winter landscapes, and embracing them in jewellery helps you echo the season’s purity and tranquillity. For example, white gold personifies this trend perfectly, offering the classic elegance of gold but with a modern, sublime twist. It exudes opulence, while its cool undertones mirror winter’s charm.

Together, white gold and blue offer a striking contrast. They illuminate winter-themed designs, presenting an icy wonderland on a delicate jewellery piece. Just take a look at the examples available here at Banks Lyon:

Statement Earrings

Statement earrings have claimed the spotlight this winter. Like the bold and chunky chains, these attention-grabbing pieces emphasise personal flair, giving off an air of elegance, sophistication, and creativity. This season, designers have leaned heavily into distinct materials and shapes, adding visual interest to their customers’ winter wardrobes. These dramatic earrings help brighten up a dull winter atmosphere and give the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.

At Banks Lyon, we recognise that every wearer is unique, which is why our wide-ranging collection reflects varied styles of statement earrings. Whether you want diamond earrings that catch the winter moonlight or you prefer to make a statement through bold colours, we have something for you.

Cuff Bangles

Even though cuff bangles and arm cuffs have a timeless appeal, we have still seen a rise in their popularity during the winter months. These open-ended bracelets are large yet lightweight and designed to slip over the wrist easily, but what is it that has made them so sought-after this winter?

Well, cuff bangles cater to winter’s lengthy clothing layers. They stand out against thick jumpers and long coats, providing a visually striking contrast. Alongside this, they are incredibly versatile and can be worn singly or stacked, matching any outfit whilst allowing for personal flair in the way they are styled.

Our Shaun Leane jewellery presents an array of options for those wanting to adorn these stylish bracelets. Just see below for a taste of what is available here at Banks Lyon:

Styling Tips: How to Wear and Pair Winter Jewellery Trends

Seasonal trends give you a fantastic opportunity to diversify your jewellery collection. Be mindful, though; balance is key in fashion, so you should integrate trends with finesse, allowing your style to remain harmonious and sophisticated.
