Here’s a definitive list of trends and ideas to make heads turn this New Year
Poonam Soni’s bespoke jewellery has received global acclaim and some of her collections have made way into international collector’s books along with Jar, Vancleef Arpels, Cartier, Boucheron and other world-renowned brands.
Recently, Soni’s jewellery has featured in the Rolls Royce limited edition coffee table book in London.
Poonam Soni’s fashion jewellery has also been part of the New York Fashion Weeks, and is retailed through prime stores in the USA.
Here, we get the designer to dish out jewellery trends to look out for in 2015.
>> Collect bespoke pieces of jewellery in very vintage or ornate styles made using exquisite craftsmanship in ever popular stones, emeralds, rubies and pearls.
>> The other style in collector’s pieces will be quirky and embellished in stunning bright stone colours in tones of coral, crimson and sensual blues.
>> Youngsters, opt for fun and fashion jewellery with stack rings, slogan bracelets and insignia pendants. Long, tasseled necklaces will be a popular trend.
>> Gold will remain the addiction but the aspirational metal will be platinum for men and women. This will gain more popularity, as it is a metal of great emotional and heritage value, thanks to its enduring and everlasting quality.
>> Heavy gold will rule weddings but platinum will inch its way into every trousseau. Bridal platinum for cocktail evenings will become as popular as love bands to celebrate those special moments.
