While some fashion statements take decades to reappear, gold jewellery has been a consistent favourite of men and women for ages. These accessories have been known to be used for symbolic, religious and functional purposes. In 2021, a specific style of gold adornment is on-trend: chunky gold everything. Whether you are a fan of rings, bracelets, earrings or necklaces, chunky gold pieces are a must-have this season. Thankfully, many of these trendy baubles have found popularity in years past, so you won’t have any trouble finding a good selection – even in your own closet.
Rings have been used throughout history to communicate information such as group membership, socioeconomic standing and marital status. Even if you like to wear rings just for fun, these pieces usually communicate something about your personality or style. For this reason, it’s worthwhile to find ones you really love. This year, try donning a bulkier ring or two. These rings may feature a thick, solid band or even a chain design. For an even more eye-catching statement, look for a double-banded ring or a band that supports a coin or other design element.
Bracelets may serve many of the same functions as rings and are often worn for special occasions. These items can communicate everything from your birth month to your religious beliefs to your favourite hobbies. Bracelets have been known to hold charms and trinkets of many kinds. When it comes to bulky bracelets on trend this year, keep your eyes open for pieces that feature strong chains or dangling coins. For an incredibly bold statement, try out a gold cuff bracelet. These cuffs come in both sleek, plain designs and intricately engraved ones. One thing is for sure: these chunky gold bracelets will be a standout part of your outfit.
Earrings are also as old as time. Like most kinds of jewellery, earrings come in a wide variety of styles. There is no lack of choices, from small studs to bracelet-sized hoops, when it comes to adorning your ears. If you usually keep your earrings small and simple, consider branching out a bit this year. Chunky gold pieces that catch the light are on-trend in 2021. Many fashionable people are even wearing earrings whose designs are inspired by Salvador Dalí. These masterpieces often feature multiple dangling pendants and are sure to bring a few compliments your way.
No matter your style preferences, necklaces have something to offer virtually everyone. Men and women alike have worn necklaces throughout history, and there is no shortage of options for necklace designs. In 2021, you can expect to see a rise in thick chain necklaces. Additionally, be sure to be on the lookout for chunky pieces utilizing coins, eye-catching pendants and even pearls. If you find that necklaces get in your way, you could even expand your jewellery collection to include a brooch or two. Brooches come in many sizes and designs and can act as either a subtle addition to your outfit or the main act.
