2024 Jewellery Trends: What’s in Vogue This Year

As we work our way through 2024, the jewellery world is brimming with new trends and innovative designs. This year has seen an electric mix of classic jewellery styles mixed with more contemporary designs.

This combination has allowed for jewellery collections to cater to a wide range of tastes and styles. From sustainable practices to bold statements, here’s a look at the top jewellery trends that will define 2024.

1. Sustainable and Ethical Jewellery

Sustainability continues to be a significant trend in the jewellery industry. From more sustainable practices, such as utilising recycled materials, the fashion and jewellery sector has seen a push this year towards sustainable and responsible buying. Encouraging consumers to sell unwanted jewellery to specialist buyers or via online marketplaces like Vinted, rather than sending to landfill or remaining at the bottom of the jewellery drawer.

Consumers are increasingly conscious of the environmental and ethical impact of their purchases. Many jewellery brands are now prioritising eco-friendly practices, such as ethically sourced gemstones. Brands like Chopard and Tiffany & Co. are leading the way, ensuring that their products not only look good but also do good on a global level.

2. Maximalism: Bold and Statement Pieces

2024 is all about making a statement. Maximalist jewellery, characterised by oversized and extravagant designs has taken centre stage on the catwalks this year. Think large and chunky with brightly coloured gemstones, thick chains, and elaborate motifs. This trend is perfect for those who love to stand out and add a touch of drama to their outfits. Designers are being fearful in 2024 and embracing bold colours, unconventional shapes and pushing the boundaries of the traditional jewellery design.

3. Nostalgic and Vintage Inspired Designs

The vintage trend is not new to 2024, and continues to be hugely popular amongst the pre-owned lovers. Vintage-inspired jewellery pieces, particularly from the 1980s and 1990s, are making a comeback. We are seeing more yellow gold this year and less silver pieces. Expect to see more chunky gold curb chains, bold hoop earrings, and signet rings. These pieces offer a blend of retro charm and modern sophistication with many vintage pieces being made of solid gold, appealing to those who appreciate timeless styles with a contemporary twist.

4. Personalized Jewellery

Personalisation remains a key trend in 2024. We continue to see beautiful name tag necklaces in script fonts. Consumers are continuing to seek unique pieces that reflect their individuality. However, the personalised trend does conflict with the sustainable ethos of 2024 as many of these pieces can be difficult to resell. We are also seeing initial rings, birthstone pieces, as well as permanently welded bracelets, which have been highly popular. This trend extends to bespoke designs, where customers collaborate with jewellers to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Personalised jewellery has made for meaningful gifts and cherished keepsakes.

5. Mixed Metals

Gone are the days of the rule of sticking to wearing only one metal. Mixing metals, such as gold, silver, and rose gold, is a popular trend in 2024. This approach allows for more versatility, less restriction and creativity in styling. We have seen watch brands such as Rolex release many new models in various metals including rose gold, yellow gold, steel and platinum. Mixed metal pieces can add depth and dimension to any outfit, making them a versatile addition to any jewellery collection.
