The Jewellery Trends You’ll Be Seeing Everywhere In 2020

Trust us on this one

The beginning of a new decade means a fresh start for everyone – with everything from wellness routines, career trajectories and personal relationships, to wardrobes and closets receiving the full 2020 makeover. Though a new year’s clean out of your clothes and shoes may seem like the obvious choice, we recommend taking the opportunity to conduct a major jewellery overhaul (trust us, you’ll be shocked by how many pieces you’re hoarding).

The new decade brings with it a jewellery box full of new and exciting trends that will make the pieces of the 2010s a distant memory. Although a few things are for certain; our collective obsession with astrology jewellery isn’t going anywhere, and the chainlink trend that resurfaced towards the back end of 2019 is continuing strong into the new year. Among those two staples, we’ll be seeing more mixed metals, clear accents and a definite penchant for statement pieces.
