Jewellery Fiends Are Going To Love This Gorgeous New Collection

Mention Thomas Sabo and some of the images that might spring to mind are skulls or the heavy rock and roll influence in the designs. This season, the German jewellery brand makes a strong fashion statement with a collection that goes big with feminine designs, fashionable colours, glamorous details and a wide range of practical and smart touches. Here, we highlight five reasons why the jewellery fiend would want to take note of the S/S ’18 collection.

#1: Charms are not just meant for bracelets
All thanks to the introduction of small hinged hoops. For the first time ever, these contraptions allow someone to attach the trinkets from the Generation Charm Club line, which can then be hooked onto rings on necklaces and pendants. Since no one can dictate the number of charms you can attach or even the design permutation you can do, each jewellery is uniquely your own. The bonus: There are over 260 new charm designs to choose from. (Clockwise from top left) Sterling silver Pisces zodiac charm, $129.

Sterling silver crescent moon charm, $72. 18K rose gold-plated sterling silver with zirconia, glass-ceramic, synthetic corundum and zirconia Victorian cross charm, $149. Sterling silver with zirconia hoop earrings, $91 #2: The colours are super rich
Compared to past collections, S/S ’18 sees more vibrant gem hues creeping into the designs, giving the jewellery a more eye-catching quality that’s perfect for the fashion magpie. Expect more saturated colours such as hot pink, marigold yellow and cardinal red appearing on glass-ceramic, zirconia and simulated malachite gems. These hues pop up in the Tropical series, which encompasses Aztec-inspired and filigree-designed pieces such as the parrot and sunstone amulet. They also appear in the boho-chic Riviera Colours series which is distinguishable by its combination of turquoise, red and green gems.

Sterling silver ring with glass-ceramic and zirconia, $179 #3: There's a big '80s vibe with some jewellery designs
Want to cop the flamboyant and luxurious look of jewellery from the Lacroix era? Thomas Sabo does a modern take on the outlandish and intricate designs of that decade with its line of robust and glamorous 18K gold-plated pieces. (Clockwise from left) Sterling silver earrings with simulated turquoise, synthetic corundum, zirconia and simulated malachite, $369. Sterling silver letter K charm with zirconia l, $109. Sterling silver earrings, $329. Sterling silver and zirconia ring, $439. Sterling silver bracelet with glass-ceramic, synthetic corundum and zirconia, $369. All 18K gold-plated #4: Stacking your rings or styling them is a no-brainer
There are two ways in which the brand helps out in this aspect: The first is a band which looks as though three different rings are stacked on top of one another. The other is a knuckle duster-inspired design which comprises three slim bands linked together in a row — so you can slip into the entire piece onto all three digits in one go. These rings are only available at the brand’s Ion Orchard in this region. (From top to bottom) Sterling silver ring with zirconia, $329. Sterling silver ring with zirconia, $369. Sterling silver ring with glass-ceramic, synthetic corundum and zirconia, $549 #5: The serpentine jewellery boasts a strong vintage cachet
While the previous snake pieces from the brand come in more conventional finishes like silver and black and a strong rocker vibe, this season’s pieces hark back to vintage pieces or baubles that you might pick up from overseas markets. The serpentine designs are peppered with gems and crystals in a tasteful colour palette of turquoise and emerald. (Clockwise from top left) Sterling silver ring with glass-ceramic and zirconia, $549.
