Spring Summer 2021 Jewellery Trends: Boho Jewellery & More

The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and the daffodils are starting to bloom… It’s official, spring is finally here! But what does that mean for your jewellery collection?

While the beginning of 2021 has consisted of living in pyjamas during several Netflix binges, the jewellery industry has seen a massive influx of customers wanting to style up their at-home looks. With neon tones and the ever-loved chunky chain making even more appearances, we can prepare ourselves for a lockdown-free Summer with the cutest boho jewellery pieces on the market.

Without further ado, let’s dive into some of the top jewellery trends for spring/summer 2021!

SS21 Colour Palette by Pantone

In a recent blog post, we talked about the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow. But the Pantone Colour Institute also put together a Fashion Colour Trend Report specifically for spring/summer 2021, highlighting the top 15 colours with 5 core neutral classics. In other words, these are the shades that were expected to feature heavily on the runways as designers showcase their spring/summer collections.

“A range of floral hues reflective of gardens in springtime awakens our spirit, reinvigorating our interest in colour that inspires feelings of much needed optimism. Colours that are flexible and can work year-round, colours that amalgamate our desire for comfort and relaxation with energy and determination.”  

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

What does this mean for your jewellery style? Well, although the Fashion Colour Trend Report is mainly a nod towards the shades that you can expect to see in designer clothing and accessories trends for 2021, it can also be applied to jewellery. Think of bold, colourful gemstones that incorporate these key hues, and complement them with an outfit based around any of the calmer core colours.

Jewellery Trends for SS 2021

Pearl Talk

Pearls are timeless. From the 13th century, you could expect to see pearls being rocked by those whose faith lied in Buddha. Now, their modernised aesthetic creates an indulgent lustre to any look, day and night. This year, boho jewellery collections can expect to see Pearl statement pieces; from hair nets to necklaces, this contemporary spin on the classical beauty of pearls is one to not be missed.

ChloBo jewellery, especially, creates a boho-chic vibe with every single one of their collections. To honour SS21’s pearl trend, we have chosen some best-selling ChloBo pieces that’ll add the luxurious but modernistic effect to your collection.

ChloBo have combined both 925 Sterling Silver with delicately places pearls in their Silver & Pearl Forever and Always Bracelet. Finished off with a dainty silver angel wing charm elegantly dangling from the band, ChloBo has taken a simple but charming approach to the pearl trend in 2021.

While ChloBo always adds simplistic beauty to their products, this ChloBo Silver & Pearl Confetti Falls Necklace will finish off an outfit gorgeously. While it flows over the beauty bone, the connecting chain laces the back, allowing for a stunning statement when paired with open back tops and dresses.

Chunky Chains

If you’re looking to make a statement this spring, you’re in good company: chunky chain-link necklaces ruled the runways, from oversized chokers to sparkling silver links. Boho style jewellery UK comprising fine chains has officially taken a backseat, as thick metal styles dominate as one of the key necklace trends for spring 2021.

This is great news for those looking to dress up their everyday and work fashion, as throwing on a chunky necklace (or bracelet) is a quick and easy way to embellish your outfit while keeping it sophisticated. You can keep it refined and minimalist during the daytime, then take it to the next level at night by layering up your necklaces or throwing on some more daring colourful creations.

Beach Vibes

Spring always arrives with a renewed affection for the beach, and everything that comes with it. Replicated through nautical theming, we can expect to see shell-inspired pieces, as well as natural materials such as stone in 2021’s beautiful boho jewellery.

Another nod towards the boho-chic trend came in the form of natural or raw shells, imbuing jewellery creations with a more organic, delicate feel.

Off The Cuff

There’s just something captivating about the look of wearing a statement bracelet. Wearing one oversized bracelet is somehow more eye-catching and impressive than donning a bunch of stacked bangles, especially when you opt for a piece that is especially unique and experimental.

Sculptural designs and vibrant colours are taking the stage for cuffs this Spring/Summer. As soon as you add this statement addition to your wrist, immediately your outfit becomes edgier and stylish. ChloBo has created a bangle that takes the lustre of gold and has produced a statement cuff that isn’t so extravagant.

Last season’s top trends: still in style or fashion faux pas?

Certain style trends made an appearance during the autumn/winter seasons of 2020 (or perhaps even earlier than that), but we know there’s some speculation over which of these will be sticking around for 2021. We’re here to answer your burning questions on which popular jewellery trends you can expect to see even more of in the upcoming spring/summer months!

Are chokers still in style for 2021?

Most definitely! Joining up nicely with the chain-link trend, chokers returned to the spring/summer 2021 runways with bigger, bolder and more daring designs.

Chokers originally exploded on the runways in time for the spring/summer season of 2020 – seeing a massive resurgence after they came back on the scene in 2019 and since, back in the 90’s – and it seems the trend has only evolved since then.

Are hoop earrings still in style for 2021?                 

We think it’s safe to say that hoop earrings are one style that will never go out of style. Designers are getting more and more creative and experimental, playing with textures, size and colours, leading to a vast array of styles for you to choose from.

Statement hoops popping up more and more frequently, often allowing you to wear them as your only accessory. While you may be content with a dainty pair of hoops to dress up your everyday outfits, earring trends for spring 2021 are leaning into oversized, unconventional styles.

Is rose gold still in style for 2021?

Rose gold exploded onto the jewellery scene back in the early 2010’s, and has enjoyed wave after wave of popularity ever since. Now a regular feature in modern jewellery, it remains a stylish option thanks to its lustrous appearance and enticing rosy hues, still a key player in gold jewellery trends for 2021.
