Hoop earrings are a style perennial; no jewelry collection is complete without at least one pair. For such a simple design, they’re remarkably versatile: oversized gold hoops are a summer essential, while lobes stacked with tiny ‘huggies’ – made famous by Maria Tash – are the modern way to wear diamonds.To get more news about images of jewelry designs, you can visit official website.

Beginners should start with fine gold hoops such as Jennifer Fisher’s ultra-lightweight designs. “There’s a reason hoops have been around for centuries – they’re incredibly comfortable and go with everything,” says Fisher, whose designs are loved by A-listers including Yara Shahidi and Margot Robbie.

The ultimate hoop-earring collection should also include a pair of mid-sized chubby hoops, such as Bottega Veneta’s sculptural pair for everyday wear, along with a shot of color in the form of Alison Lou’s ‘Jelly’ hoops or Sophie Bille Brahe’s pearl-adorned design, perfect for adding instant elegance. And, further proof that hoop earrings aren’t just for daytime, Anita Ko’s ultra-glamorous rose-gold hoops are embellished with more than three carats of diamonds, making them the perfect finishing touch for most after-dark looks.
One of the biggest jewelry trends of recent years, the chain necklace is here to stay. There is something to suit every style and budget – from Alighieri’s embellished gold chain, complete with textured links, to unapologetically chunky styles by Parisian label Paco Rabanne, whose exaggerated styles have become a signature of the house.

LA-based brand Spinelli Kilcollin has become known for its interconnecting ‘Galaxy’ rings – loved by fashion editors and celebrities alike – and recently its ‘Crux’ chain necklace, comprising yellow, pink and black gold links in varying weights and sizes, has also achieved similar cult status. Top of our Wish List this season is the brand’s chunky pearl-embellished ‘Varuna’ style, a simple way to add ladylike charm to even the most understated outfits.

Chains work best when worn casually – layer two or three over a white T-shirt or tank top in summer – or to add interest to weighty knits in colder months. Bigger styles also serve as the perfect industrial-chic counterpoint to ladylike looks: Lauren Rubinski’s polished-gold chain lends instant cool to a strappy sundress.
“I love to stack my cuffs up the ear, wearing two or three at a time,” says Anita Ko. “I usually concentrate on one ear, but will adorn both for a glamorous evening look. They bring so much light and energy around the face.”

Multiple ear piercings are a chance to mix and match precious hoops and studs, curating an ‘ear compilation’ that’s entirely unique. But cartilage piercings aren’t without their downsides. Enter the ear cuff: the versatile way to achieve a cool and contemporary look, without the piercing or pain.

“I don’t think there’s anything cooler than a sparkly ear party, and the ear cuff has added a whole new layer to the way we adorn our ears,” says Ko, who describes her ear cuffs as “rings for the ear”. In various shades of gold, often studded with diamonds or colored sapphires, her designs range from a pared-back, plain rose-gold hoop to a wave-shaped cuff inlaid with baguette-cut diamonds.

Mizuki’s ear cuffs are finished with pearls; Jacquie Aiche adds chains for a boho vibe; and Melissa Kaye injects a burst of color with electric-blue or hot-pink enamel alongside brilliant-cut diamonds. Endlessly versatile, ear cuffs can be worn at any point along the ear lobe to enliven your everyday look or add a modern edge to after-dark attire. Repossi has demonstrated that ear cuffs have a place on the red carpet, with the likes of Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett and Keira Knightley pairing the brand’s dazzling diamond cuffs with their couture gowns.
A watch is the ultimate everyday accessory; the finishing touch that makes any outfit complete. Every watch wardrobe should include a pared-back classic by an established brand that carries both style and horological cachet.

Round dials are universally flattering, while square or rectangular dials are the epitome of elegance. Choose whichever-color metal you wear most, and invest in the best materials and craftsmanship that your budget allows.

The beautifully minimalist dial of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ‘Master Ultra Thin Moon’ comes with pictograms that indicate the phases of the moon and the date: an aesthetically beautiful detail as well as a useful function. The label’s ‘Reverso’ watch, created in the 1930s for polo players, is redolent of the art-deco era, as is Cartier’s ‘Baignoire’, with a chic brown strap that will only get better with age.

Cartier’s ‘Ballon Bleu’, as worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, is another understated yet instantly recognizable design: in practical and durable stainless steel, it will never date. The Hermès ‘Heure H’, meanwhile, is a more contemporary design that has earned a place on the world’s most fashionable wrists. Its interchangeable strap means it will complement any ensemble.
