Statement and oversized jewellery were all the rage for the runway looks of the past two years. But these days, we are seeing a surge in the opposite. When it comes to this year’s jewellery trends, less is definitely more.
The glorious thing about delicate jewellery is how effortlessly it delivers a feminine and sophisticated vibe, and how great it looks layered too. Best of all, they are wearable in any occasion, giving you more bang for the buck.
Check out some modern and light jewellery pieces that you can get in Singapore:
1. Galaxy ring from circles collection, S$256 each from Diamanti per Tutti

A Belgian brand that just landed in Singapore, Diamanti per Tutti prides itself on ethically sourced diamonds that are at a reasonable price, so that more can access this gorgeous, sparkly gem. They want to change the idea that these rocks are only reserved for a happy few — something we can totally get onboard with. Pieces are light and attractive, and are great for stacking.
We’re loving the galaxy ring, a timeless and elegant ring that comes in sterling silver, yellow or rose gold plated. Each ring is handset with 19 white diamonds and is gorgeous enough for everyday wear. Slip on two or three of the same shade for a super chic look.
2. Colette bracelet, prices start from S$893 per bracelet from Niessing
Niessing is the ultimate when it comes to personalising your jewellery. With a variety of finishes and a wide range of colours such as fine rose, ivory, platinium, classic red, classic yellow and fine gray to choose from, you can ensure your jewellery pieces are exactly what you want.
These trendy Colette bracelets are light coils, featuring a small singular ball which can also include a diamond if that takes your fancy. Wear alone or mix and match them in different colours for a haute bohemian feel.
If you’re really into personalised jewellery, we recommend checking out Niessing’s new Niessing Now Tattoorange, where you can literally draw, write or get printed onto your pieces whatever your heart desires. From children’s scribbles to signatures to love notes and to images of pets or loved ones, you can create interesting and unique jewellery items to cherish always.
3. Pipe and drop crystal necklace by Monday Edition, S$169 from Zalora

South Korean brand Monday Edition’s pieces have an aim — to captivate and capture the luminescence of the moonlight. This necklace, which is made of plated rhodium and plated gold and set with intricate Swarovski crystals, does just that. Best of all, it will sit nicely on your collarbone. While its glittery rocks will catch the light as you move, the chain is delicate enough to make this a subtle and dignified piece. The contrast of metal colours make for a modern touch too.
4. Linear solo diamond cuff, S$175 from Monica Vinader

Monica Vinader has a wide range of delicate and modern arm candy pieces, from charm bracelets to those with gems and even pieces that can be engraved. We like this simple linear cuff that features two central pavé diamonds, each totalling 0.012 carats. Available in sterling silver or yellow / rose gold plated, it adds a graceful touch to your ensemble and is a classic piece to add to your wardrobe. It comes in three sizes — S/M/L — but can be adjusted to size too. Wear stacked with its Siren Mini Nugget Cluster Bracelet for a polished look.
5. Raindrop ring, S$57 from The Mindful Company

Not just a minimalist piece, this raindrop ring holds meaning, symbolising hope, beginnings and renewal. This ring is part of the brand’s ‘reminder ring’ collection — a reminder of the beauty and natural cycle of life. Available in rose gold plated or yellow gold plated and sterling silver, it also comes in different sizes too. The brand has other equally gorgeous pieces that are similarly delicate, such as their cuffs and reminder braids.
And we love that The Mindful Company does not create empty pieces that are just known for their pretty aesthetics. The brand wants to empower and inspire, with the aim to create “pieces you can wear every day, to help you get through those moments when you feel like you just can’t even”. Good enough reason for us to splash on a few.
6. Two tone minimalist cuff by Madegrey, S$55 from Naiise
Hong Kong brand, Madegrey specialises in minimalist and stylish jewellery and watches, with a high emphasis on quality. We like this unique cuff that is polished stainless steel and rose gold plated, offering a two-tone shine to your wrist for days you can’t decide what shade to wear. Wear solo or try stacking with other bracelets — both gold and silver — for a real bohemian feel.
