Inspired by the trends: IJL’s Christmas Wish List – Industrial Core

With Christmas just around the corner we have rounded up some of the best pieces from IJL 2019 exhibitors, that not only perfectly reflect the ‘Industrial Core’ trend for SS19 but will also put a smile on anyone’s face come Christmas morning. Get your gift list ready with IJL this year!

Trend Recap: Industrial Core

This trend is inspired by urban lifestyles, architecture and redefined industrial materials. Expect to see jewellery with strong connections to minimalist design, including a resurgence of links and chains. Yellow gold versions decorated with diamonds translate industrial inspirations into fine pieces, while silhouettes are kept simple and unisex – in-keeping with broader fashion trends. This highly-contemporary look ties into the growing number of eco-conscious jewellery designers making their pieces in recycled silver, gold or more unusual materials. 

1. Sif Jakobs ‘Ellera’ Earrings (from £49), Bracelets (from £59) and Rings (from £59)  

This beautiful new collection from Sif Jakobs offers elegance at affordable prices. With earrings, bracelets and rings coming in different colours and styles it is certainly a Christmas gift that keeps on giving. The simple silhouettes studded with beautiful facet cut zirconia will certainly add a touch of glamour to every outfit throughout the festive period and beyond. We want one of each please Santa.
