Suggestion: Statement Jewellery For Nine-To-Five

Minimalists, step aside. With the return of the ’80s chunky jewellery trend on the runways of Fall/Winter ’18 and Spring/Summer ’19, it’s clear that bigger is better. We aren’t gonna lie, these pieces aren’t shy. To embrace the trend, we suggest pairing these ostentatious creations with simple, pared-back looks to create balance (unless you’re a maximalist at heart). Think pantsuits and simple tops with tailored trousers. Shop above.


Loewe feather earrings, $850
Match the boho vibes with a prairie dress or an oversized tent dress, and top it off with a fringed jacket. Boots required. Cartier Panthere de Cartier ring in pink gold, tsavorite garnets and onyx, $8,250
Featuring Cartier’s signature panther, we love the gorgeous onyx gem which adds dimension to the piece. Plus the neutral-toned rose gold colour makes this ring flattering for all skin tones, and an easy match with whatever colours you choose to wear. Swarovski lucky goddess charms necklace, multi-coloured, gold plating, $549
Adorned with charms of talisman symbols — such as the evil eye that is said to ward off negative energy — this vintage-inspired necklace will jazz up a simple top and sharp trousers combi instantly. For best effect, go with an all black look to really let this necklace pop. Atelier Swarovski fluid azzuro fringe necklace silvershade, $1,990
Set in palladium and made with silvershade crystals, this fringe necklace is new to Atelier Swarovski’s Fluid Azzuro line and pairs well with cooler skin tones. Burberry crystal charm gold and palladium-plated bracelet, $1,420
If you’re done with the usual charm bracelets, switch to this gold and palladium-plated brass chain link bracelet from Burberry that comes adorned with adorable motifs like a crystal daisy and a kilt pin. Tiffany & Co. diamond and tanzanite open flower ring, price available on request
As part of the brand’s Paper Flowers collection, this ring is designed to evoke the abstract shape of a flower and comes with paved diamonds and tanzanite. Pair this shiny feminine piece with a crisp white suit for contrast. Tiffany & Co. is located in Takashimaya S.C. in Ngee Ann City, ION Orchard and The Shoppes in Marina Bay Sands. Kenneth Jay Lane gold-tone bracelet, US$95.30 from Net-a-Porter
Combining gold-plated chain links of varying sizes and designs, Kenneth Jay Lane’s dimensional piece is best worn with three-quarter sleeve outfits — to bring focus to its statement-making quality. Bimba Y Lola long silver rocks earrings, $160
Part of whimsical Spanish label Bimba Y Lola’s S/S’19, these earrings sport unique, mismatched stone-like features that reflect the season’s geological influence. We reckon these are versatile enough to match with any of your work outfits. Besides, they add a dose of playfulness to a professional ensemble. Bimba Y Lola has multiple boutiques in locations such as VivoCity, Raffles City and ION Orchard.  Laura Lombardi presa gold-tone necklace, US$181.70 from Net-a-Porter
