Everything you need to know about this season’s heirloom jewellery trend

This SS20 season was a blast from the past, with metals, designs and jewels from our ancestral age. Vintage jewellery designs are seen worn by Nicole Kidman, Kangana Ranaut, Shilpa Shetty, Karlie Kloss, and Sarah Jessica Parker. This Oscars also had a collection of stunning fine jewellery that reminded us of a time long ago. Designers are incorporating vintage designs that go perfectly well with the vintage fashion they’re bringing back this season.

You can expect to see Greek-inspired gold bangles, studs, rings, necklaces, pendants and more. Antique jewellery from Victorian France, Ancient Greece, homemade gold from what look like jewellery from Pompeii, diamonds and pearls from the American 30s, and jewels from the seas. Ancient Indian jewellery like jhumkas, mangalsutras, and simple gold hoops and nose rings from the days of old. 

Let’s take a look at this season’s heirloom trends passed down from grandmothers to mothers and now to us.

Look 1: Raw stones and jewels

This season, search vintage raw stones from your grandmother’s closet! Raw stones are as old as time, pairing them with a flowy white dress is antique-like and oh-so-pretty.

Look 2: Berber

Berbers are members of an indigenous tribe in parts of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, northern Mali, northern Niger, and a small part of western Egypt. Their jewellery is very tribal. This season, look for whimsical vintage jewellery to pair with velvets and dark-hued fabrics.

Look 3: Krugerrands

Gold coins in South Africa during the late 60s are called Krugerrands, these gold earrings are symbolic of these ancient gold coins.

Look 4: Iridescent raw pearl

Raw pearl and statement tribal jewellery is the latest trend. While most pearls are finished, heirloom pearl jewelery is unfinished. Mix and match with vintage dresses and cardigans.

Look 5: Casting Gold

Think of fine raw liquid gold with skin-toned dresses, jumpsuits and clothes.
