To exude timelessness is to reflect the journey of the universe. As the cosmos has always been and always will be, the hues of eternity tell a story of exuberant artistry. From the pops of red and purple in fruits such as raspberries, blackberries and figs to the lush greens of plants, the ultramarine and clarity of the ocean deep or the heavens with flashes of sunlight and stars proves beauty is everywhere. Trends will come and go, Timeless Jewellery Colour Trends are here to stay.
When Pantone released vibrant Viva Magenta as Colour of the Year, we knew 2023 was the year to be brave and fearless. An animated red celebrating pure joy and unshackled self-expression, Viva Magenta welcomes everyone and everything with rebellious vitality.
This is a daring signal: this is clearly the year of fierce vibrance as Viva Magenta reflects intensity and dynamism. Bold playful hues on the warmer side of the wheel is our preference.
But we should always choose adventure, from the way we express ourselves to enhance our feelings of joy and wellbeing. Taking a leap into wearing more daring colours may not be easy – but to do so, is transformative.
May your journey through life be vibrant and full of colourful rainbows
– Harley King
We should always aim for adventurous with colours that are assertive without being aggressive; colours that boldly dominate without being violent, all the while driving to a positive, bright future. We look to the eternal bloom of natural forces for reassurance, protection and trust. We are looking for warmth and strength while expanding our boundaries of authenticity.
We must be inspired to be brave and confident. To reflect eternity is to echo power colours that balance boldness with fun. We can be simultaneously rebellious yet gentle, expressing fierce grace, while showing up with confidence and humility. The colours of immortality help us stand strong while we heal, allowing us to be cloaked in both power and grace.
Sure, our minimalist wardrobe means we may not be quite brave enough to go all out block and bold. But the greatness and versatility of timeless colours means they will always work radiantly as popping accessories. It’s about being adventurous. It’s all about adding zhush to the everyday – and standing out in your own unique way.
There is no beauty without colour
Lucious reds and blushing rose
Red and pinks take us out of our comfort zone, energising us and lifting our spirits. In a world of black or white, wearing life-affirming red and pink are our brightest coloured and most powerful armour. Choosing a lush impactful red or distinctive pink rose is a reminder of the ass-kicking fierce confident badass we really are.
Let that rosy red sparkle start a fire
Visions of azure blue seas and the electric colour from the underwater takes a deep dive into aquatic dream where the colour of luck inspires us to take brave steps forward to journeys deep within.
Restorative and soothing to the soul, from aquamarine to sapphire, blue is the perfect armour against stress and fatigue to make everything sparklier.
The sun is up, the sky is blue; it’s beautiful and so are you
– John Lennon
A blank canvas
Purity, perfection and invincible power belongs to diamonds and clear crystals to focus, amplify and transform energy.
Natural upheaval, immense geological shifts, volcanic activity and the grinding down of mountains means their gems and stones are imbued with the aura of magic to protect our bodies and spirits across the centuries.
From climate change to political and economic insecurity intended to erode our armour, it’s reasonable enough to seek sources of strength, comfort and meaning as powerful shields against daily life.
Sparkle and shine
As the hue for breaking barriers and inspiring change, the mix between red and purple is a sensory uplifting colour to boost creativity levels for a transformation of the soul. A sense of balance comes with the reddish blue that covers the kaleidoscope of plum to violet, wine and pomegranate looking for balance, hope and serenity.
Transformation can only take place immediately: the revolution is now, not tomorrow
– Jiddu Krishnamurti
Soothing with overtones of citrus, the balance between the acidity and refreshment of green creates space that is both playful and sophisticated. Greens are an organic hue embracing the raw beauty ideal as work-life go-tos. As the expression of our hopeful spirits, green is the colour to reconnect with the world, friends and loved ones. We can freshen our look with pops of emerald or subtle peridot while channelling all the luxury.
Love is an emerald: its brilliant light wards off dragons on this treacherous path
The warm honey of yellow and orange boosts the virtues of leadership, representing intuition and inner peace, standing for power, loyalty and prosperity. A lively fire, yellow and orange transforms negative energy into positive invigorating vibrations for vitality and healing power.
Release anger, surrender to forgiveness and bring balance to turbulent emotions for calm and peace. The inner blaze of fire protects against accidents and fire, protecting travellers while inspiring creativity.
The cut of a diamond or gem’s shape ultimately determines their ability to sparkle. A gem possesses a unique shine defined by the number of facets and how light travels through the stone. With flat, polished surfaces from within the gem, these facets work to maximise the gem’s ability to draw in and reflect the light for an exclusive brilliance and sparkle. Extraordinary and classic, welcome to The Unique Versatility Of Teardrop Jewellery.
Every drop counts
Celebrities from Rhianna to Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton and many more love to flash their teardrop pear-shaped gems for the world to see thanks to its rare sparkle. We love its shape for its uniqueness and versatility, complementing vintage to modern styles.
Resembling a dew droplet and the shape of the luscious pear, teardrop-shaped gems with their asymmetrical curves combine the round brilliant cut with the points of a Marquise. Known for its distinctive pear shape, the teardrop features one rounded end tapering to an opposite point for a striking silhouette. This makes the gem appear larger while increasing the sparkle.
With more surface area than round cut diamond rings, the overall effect of its brilliant symmetry and design is a stunning dangling bead for a sleek look that is both unique, timeless and classic.
Listen to the rhythm of the water drop
Whether the point faces up or down largely depends on the setting and can be a personal preference – especially for engagement rings -though the standard is point up and drop down for an impactful visual effect that is eye-catching and always flattering.
While the teardrop is not as popular as the princess or round brilliant, its shape holds an unconventional appeal for modern vintage-inspired and modern-yet-timeless designs that elongates the area its featured upon – especially fingers, décolletages and ears.
Every teardrop is precious. If some drop, make sure they’re worth crying for: you can never pick them up and put them back.
The symbolism of pear-shape gems are associated with tears – more specifically, tears of joy, linking with marriage, happy occasions and love. Wearing teardrop jewellery is associated with fierce confidence, marking new beginnings and hope.
They can feature easily as a large statement piece or smaller for subtle everyday wear. From adding a touch of elegance to a formal look or adding a bit of zhush to the staple tshirt and jeans, teardrop jewellery never looks over-the-top and flashy.
It’s funny how a heart is two teardrops upside down
First fashioned by Flemish diamond polisher and cutter Lodewyk van Berquem of Belgium in the early 1400s, his one-of-a-kind placement of diamonds laid the foundations for today’s modern symmetry in diamond polishing and cutting. The teardrop pear-shaped cut uses either 71 or 58 triangle shaped facets and often causes the loss of a great deal of rough diamond – an expensive process that makes for an exceptionally rare shape.
While the teardrop has waxed and waned in popularity across the ages, its uniqueness always returns to the limelight. Teardrop jewellery are the versatile and elegant accessories to add sophistication and emotional depth to your look while always making a statement to express your unique sense of style.
The true joy of nature is when every drop of water shines like a pearl
If you don’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love anybody else?
If only we came with a manual.
Life would be so much easier if we could take out that wiki and knew how to act, react and behave in every situation.
Our DNA is coded for our social structure, where living for others – our family, our friends and the rest of society – is the standard. We spend so much time living for others, we forget to take care of ourselves. So take a deep breath today and say .. I choose me.
Popping on your baubles is looking after you. Treating yourself to a glittery gift is mindfulness. Buying sparkles for your friends is the gift of giving and passing on the sparkle. Wearing jewellery is a conscious decision to shine. Jewellery Is Self-Care: I Choose Me – you’re welcome.
Jewellery is the most transformative thing you can wear
I choose me
When you say “I choose me”, you are saying:
“I am being authentically me, I am accepting who I am, the life I live, my quirks and all the bits and pieces that make me uniquely me. I choose to move to the beat of my own drum.”
“I choose me” is self-care. It’s a decision that empowers us to look after our physical and mental wellness efficiently and conveniently. We set the standards of our life for our happiness and peace.
It means you love yourself enough to let go off anything that make you unhappy. It means you love yourself enough to sparkle and shine. Self-care is a necessity. Not looking after you is a sure way to mental and physical burnout.
No one knows us better than we know ourselves. This gives us the conscious decision and permission to always love ourselves above everyone else. This means you can always trust and depend upon you.
It doesn’t mean you can’t depend on and trust others: it means when you choose you, you won’t be disappointed.
Jewellery is always the perfect reminder to sparkle – with these reasons to say “I choose me”.
Surround yourself with sparkles
Popping on your baubles amplifies the shine from within. And jewellery is the perfect encouragement to drive you forward. Stagnation is death – not moving at all gets us nowhere and stops us in our track.
Progress is always preferred – even if it’s a few steps sideways, backwards to move forwards or even in circles. Moving means life. Moving motivates us to keep finding that fire and powering through – and sparkling brightly
I see bold accessories as a woman’s armour
– Rachel Zoe
Celebrating our achievements builds our self-confidence. Buying that bracelet after getting that promotion, popping on that gifted personalised necklace from a loved one or grabbing those sparkly earrings online “just because” sets benchmarks for memorable celebration moments. We should celebrate all the wins – not just the big wins either. Got through a big day without falling into a heap on the floor? That’s a win. Fell onto the floor because it was a big day? Thank goodness there was the floor – so that’s a win too.
Whatever win it is – no matter how big or small – if it matters to you, don’t let it go by unrecognised. Be proud of yourself – and treat yourself.
An empty lantern has no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly
Every piece of jewellery we own has a memory attached to it.
That great night when we went out and everyone saw our big dangly earrings sparkle under the disco ball. Designing that special personalised necklace for mum on Mother’s Day and all the anticipation for the moment she opens the box and sees it. The tennis bracelet everyone comments on because it twinkles so beautifully.
The engagement ring our boyfriend presents when they propose, the earrings, necklace and bracelet we wear with the wedding ring that slides onto our finger on our special day.
Jewellery marks special moments and experiences every time we buy them – and pop them on.
All my jewellery has stories
– Eva Green
Because it’s your favourite
The reason to treat yourself can be as simple as finding that holy grail: the perfect piece that goes with anything.
A plain black suit goes from basic to wow with the perfect sparkly pendant. A sweetheart neckline pops with the right dangly earrings, or the staple white tshirt and jeans goes next level with the right tennis bracelet and statement cocktail ring.
It’s not just wearing the same piece over and over – it’s an investment that becomes your unique signature.
Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside
– Coco Chanel
Feeling down? That’s ok. Humans always want to feel connected by being accepted and understood. A pair of sparkly earrings, that shiny necklace, your favourite wrist twinkles or that bright ring will motivate us to turn that frown upside down – even if’s just for a moment. Sparkly jewellery always lifts the doom and gloom, as a reminder no matter how dark, the light will always shines bright and lead the way.
It’s very easy to feel unnoticed and unappreciated by everyone around us, but you can depend on you to never overlook yourself and accept yourself simply by saying “I choose me” – and the bright happy jewellery to remind you to shine.
