The new age of cocktail diamond jewellery is finally here, and the New York Fashion Week gave us a glimpse into it
The New York Fashion Week this year featured some of the best showcases of the decade. From extravagant cocktail line-ups to collections made with natural diamonds, most of the pieces had a focus on hassle-free classicism; so we noticed some very stylish new-age detailing but also a loyalty to trusty craftsmanship.
To mark their 80th anniversary Narayan Jewellers in collaboration with the beloved jewellery brand Forevermark launched their new “The Empress Collection,” designed in partnership with the celebrated designer Bibhu Mohapatra.
Global runways are, of course, warming up to seasonal maximalism. The New York Fashion Week especially saw a rising trend in noticeable and bold designs. This particular piece from the Narayan Jewellers X Forevermark collection, for instance, makes use of a nuanced geometric detailing to add an element of drama to the final layout.
Jacket for the ear?
The ear jacket was a trailblazing new trend that was ushered in by this particular line-up at the New York Fashion Week 2020; conceived like outerwear for your ear. The spectacularly designed diamond earring features an additional diamond attachment which goes behind your ear, so it literally envelopes the entire lobe. It’s moody, it’s edgy and yet very convenient, even for day wear.
The bigger, the better
Oversized studs are becoming a total rage, even among Gen-Z names; they are obviously a more effortless way of sporting big jewellery, especially if you’re not a fan of shoulder dusting danglers. This round diamond earring designed by Narayan Jewellers X Forevermark clings to your ear, which makes for a more complex silhouette.
Chandelier earrings are a Kate Middleton-approved jewellery trend which refuses to fade out, and we’re glad that New York Fashion Week 2020 brought back new ways to wear them. Sleek, intricately designed chandelier earrings went big at the fashion week. The layering of precious diamonds and dangling chains accentuate the adventurous but wearable concept of the statement diamond earring.
Desi goes global
At the New York Fashion Week, we also spotted a ballooning chandelier number which reminded us of toned-down ethnic pasa earrings; this structured dangler is heavy-set and has been fractioned into two tiers to break down the monotony. The artisanship is quite elaborate so it has been paired with a simple twisted long chain, to tone down the vibe.
The ear vine is replacing the ear cuff even in global street style circuits; it’s a lot more hassle-free, and often more impactful as there’s more room for design. The New York Fashion Week also featured a number of dainty ear vines featuring natural diamonds reminded us of vintage Tudor artistry and the hanging diamond charms added to the quirk.
This gorgeous double ring by Narayan Jewellers X Forevermark is a stunning cocktail piece – one of the standalone numbers which can stand out on their own, without any accent pieces. The New York Fashion Week had a lot of focus on distinct silhouettes and shapes, so even an elaborate ring features a confident cut without compromising on its fluidity.
