Trend Recap: Dark Romantic

Drawing inspiration from dark forests, magic and mysticism, this trend blends Art Nouveau inspirations with something altogether darker. Think pointed forms, minimal flowers, twisted branches and mysterious snakes finding their way into jewellery designs. This trend has an overall sophisticated and elegant flair, with designs that climb up the ear and swirl around fingers and wrists in gunmetal and shimmering diamonds. Expect to see double finger rings, elongated shapes and spiky earrings especially.

1. D. I. Silverton Ltd Custom made 18ct white and yellow gold ring with diamonds








This stunning piece from family business, D. I. Silverton Ltd, is perfect for those looking to really spoil their loved one this Christmas. The custom made ring is made in 18ct white and yellow gold and features 0.50cts of fine quality white baguette diamonds, a 1.05ct pear cut diamond and a GIA certificated 1.04ct natural fancy light brown yellow VVS2 pear cut diamond. This gift will last a lifetime and be treasured forever.

These pieces certainly tick all the boxes for this trend with the apparent inspiration from dark forests and magical elements. We love the fact that these pendants can be placed on any of the chains or chokers in the collection which allows the wearer to tailor the look to their own personal style, while also offering complete versatility to change them around based on outfits.
