Winter layers are cosy and warm, but jewellery tends to get drowned out by all the scarves, jumpers and jackets.
At Showcase Jewellers, we think everybody should sparkle all year round, so we have put together our best tips for styling winter jewellery that will let you shine and stay warm at the same time.
Studs won't blow around in the wind, or get caught in your winter coats or scarves.
Winter is often accompanied by chilly wind, which is the enemy of long, dangly earrings. You're better off with studs that won't blow around in the wind, or get caught in your winter coats or scarves. This doesn't mean you can't dazzle though – studs like these white gold diamond studs or these rose gold diamond and morganite studs still have plenty of bling and are sure to get noticed.
Small, delicate chains can get lost beneath winter layers. In cold weather, it's better to opt for large, chunky necklaces that you can layer over your cosy knits. Bright necklaces work well too, as they can bring some colour to your outfit
Matching a string of pearls with wintry fabrics such as velvet is another great option that brings together warmth and style.
Unless you prefer wearing gloves, rings are some of the best ways to add sparkle to your outfits in winter, as they aren't covered up or at risk of getting caught. Winter is a great chance to go for big and bold rings. To really make a statement, you could slip on a limited edition Sophia ring – the sapphire and diamonds are the perfect icy colour palette for winter.
Long sleeves cover up bracelets and can get caught on jewels or other details. The best option for winter bracelets are simple bangles that won't snag on your clothing. Minimalist options like this yellow gold bangle are sleek and streamlined, adding a glimmer of gold or silver to your wrists.
Layering is a key concept to keeping warm in winter, but it can also apply to your bracelets. Layer them up over your shirt sleeves, and layer the styles as well, mixing chunky links with slim bangles for a playful effect.
Watches are fabulous in any season, as they are both practical and gorgeous, but in winter they can become your main accessory. Large watches suit winter outfits and are bold enough not to be overshadowed by layers of clothing.
