The top 5 biggest jewellery trends

1.     Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings have been a jewellery favourite since the '70s, and they've stood the test of time throughout the 2000s through to the present day. In the noughties, large hoop earrings were a popular style among celebs, with trailblazers like J-Lo and Britney bringing hoops into mainstream culture. Nowadays, the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian show how hoop earrings can be simultaneously cool and classy — the perfect accessory for every look.

No wonder they're the most popular jewellery trend from the last couple of decades, with some of the highest online engagement of any jewellery item. Hoop earrings have over 49 million TikTok views, over 1 million Instagram hashtags, and over 18,000 shoppers look online for hoop earrings every month in the UK.

Continuing the earring obsession, drop earrings are the second biggest jewellery trend from the 2000s, and are one of the most versatile looks of all time. Whether it's an elegant pear-shaped pendant, glittering gems or your own initials, there are so many styles available ­— it's no surprise we've got a jewellery box full of them!

Drop earrings are one of the most loved jewellery items online. Over the past 12 months, over 100,000 social media engagements show 96% of reactions to drop jewellery contain the word 'love' or '❤️'.

4. Beaded Necklaces

In the early 2000s, if you didn't have power bead bracelets in every colour, you were behind the times. In the spirit of noughties nostalgia, layering your beaded jewellery pieces is back big time. Bold, chunky and colourful beaded looks are taking social media by storm, and big names like Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles are jumping on the beaded jewellery look.
