Regular readers among you will have noticed we were celebrating Jewellery Month as recently as May, but with Autumn/Winter rolling around we’ve brought it back to explain the latest trends for the cooler months. We’ve also brought back style blogger Alex Stedman from The-Frugality.com, who joined us previously to explain the layered necklace trend.
A long-length necklace is an easy way to add extra ‘fashion’ to an everyday ensemble. Floaty monochromatic tops, everyday office attire and slouchy knits will all appreciate the extra help; even your trusty jeans-and-T-shirt combos will be transformed in an instant.
Alex joined us again recently at a photoshoot to explain more:
The kind of layering Alex talked about when she joined us in May hasn’t gone away, and long-length necklaces are a great way to complete the look. Keep all the chains in your layered look of similar weight, perhaps with one taking centre stage thanks to the addition of a sparkling pendant. loveRocks’s Endless Glitter Necklace is a good example of what to look for.
It’s worth considering the length of the necklace you opt for carefully; we’ve defined longer lengths as anything above 70cm (28″ if you prefer old money), but be aware that very long designs (e.g. 90cm/35″+) may end up in your lap if you have a shorter torso. As a rule of thumb, your necklace should never finish below your navel when standing.
Investing in an ultra-long necklace of 120cm+ will give you plenty of options. Wrap them twice or even three times to create that layered look without having to buy several pieces. Azuni London’s 175cm Coin Wrap necklace demands to be doubled (you could even wrap it around your waist as an embellishment), and MarlaWynne’s bold statement two-row disc design is a great way to break up simple tops.
This week we’re also introducing a new jewellery brand on QVC. Pomegranate set up shop in 2008 on London’s Kensington Square and their founder, Katie Bulatovic, is a trained gemologist. Her passion for gemstones is the main inspiration behind the collections of jewellery she designs, which she named for the jewel-like seeds of the fruit – evocative of the most precious Burmese rubies.
