Next season’s most prominent jewellery trend elevates the concept of jewellery beyond the scope of being a mere accessory – instead, it could be a sculptural work of art that accents an outfit, or even define it entirely in a statement-making manner. The trend in question? Modern silver jewellery in minimalist, abstract forms.
Sporting a contemporary industrial feel, Spring 2021’s silver jewellery trend includes architectural influences and pared back simplistic styles. Classic with a clever twist, many of these pieces are trinkets you’ll want to reach for on any day, to accent any outfit.
From a chunky choker by Bottega Veneta to hammered cuffs ala Marni it’s time to ditch your trove of yellow-gold jewellery and opt for these scintillating silver beauties instead. If you’re looking to get ahead of the trend, we’ve rounded up our favourite modern silver jewellery to shop right now below.
Evoking the naturalistic form of stones found by a river stream, this hammered cuff from Marni features an organic shape inspired by the artistic influences from nature. Crafted from silver-tone brass, this cuff has an open silhouette which makes it easy to wear on busy mornings.
