Bling bling! 2020 called and fine jewellery is having a moment right now.
 
Our Fortitude Valley jewellers and artisans have their skilled fingers on the pulse of what’s trending in fine jewellery: from signet rings to chain bracelets and hoop earrings to chunky links. To find out how to step out in style, here’s the top jewellery trends and where to shop them in the Valley.
 
Chain links
 
This unisex trend gained momentum, thanks to the starring role of a slim silver chain in Normal People (@connellschain), however chunky chains were already a fashion fixture on runways. Look for oversize styles and chain links in rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces – preferably in shiny silver or yellow gold. We like the look of the vintage link styles at Canary Lane on Duncan Street and the stunning irregular Palmyra ring by Jess Blak on Winn Lane. Find fine chains to layer at Monty’s Pawnbrokers and Rebellious Grace, or the delicate silver chain bracelet at Jess Blak.
 
Heirloom-inspired jewellery
 
Precious heirlooms and custom jewellery provide a personal touch to your individual style. Think initialled signet rings and antique lockets, necklaces and rings set with your birthstone and letter charms. Rebellious Grace on California Lane has a range of replica gold coin and delicate charm necklaces to shop the look. Check out Jess Blak’s Contrast signet ring to make your mark on, while NTP Jewellery in McWhirters has a range of fobs, lockets, name necklaces and horoscope charms to showcase your personal style.

For vintage and antique jewellery with a unique backstory, shop Canary Lane for curated one-of-a-kind pieces, or browse Monty’s Pawnbrokers on Wickham Street, which has a wide selection of lockets, signet rings, charms and pendants.  

Oversized hoops
 
Nelly Furtado sang about Big Hoops (Bigger The Better) back in 2012, and friends, our hoop dreams are back. This time around, oversized hoop earrings take on different colours, gems and irregular shapes for an update with 2020 vision. Shop the look in the Valley at Monty’s Pawnbrokers and NTP Jewellery (we spied twisted gold styles in-store), or check out Jess Blak’s statement silver Fallen earrings and the array of delicate gold or silver and pearl hoops at Rebellious Grace.
