Ready to elevate your style game? 2024 has rolled in, and it’s bringing a fresh wave of trends for new accessories. We're talking about the gear that doesn't just complete an outfit—it defines your look, effortlessly. Alternative wedding rings were the hit of 2023, and this is only the beginning.

This year, it's all about alternative metal rings and chain necklaces stepping into the spotlight. We're looking at silicone rings for that easygoing flair, classic silver bands bringing timeless charm, hammered textures giving an edgy vibe, tough tungsten making its mark, and versatile chain necklaces tying it all together. These aren’t just accessories; they're the secret sauce to making your style pop.

Join us as we break down why these trends are set to soar and redefine jewellery in the upcoming year!


Silicone rings offer great versatility, they’re flexible and comfortable. These are the ideal accessory for those with an active lifestyle or endure varied daily activities. They’re lightweight and won’t interfere with workouts or manual labour. They are fashionable yet provide diverse style opportunities for anyone, no matter what your preferred style is. Compared to traditional metal rings, silicone rings are often more on the affordable end of the spectrum, allowing for multiple rings to match different outfits. But the silicone ring can be worn as a backup to your metal ring, so you don’t need to worry about any damage or scratching.

Silver rings possess a timeless quality, offering a blend of elegance and masculinity. The classic silver ring has been around forever - and we know it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. The colour silver offers cold yet sleek tones which can be paired with any outfit for any occasion. In the celebrity world, silver has definitely caught the eye of stylists with many celebrities wearing statement silver rings and jewels on the red carpet recently. Another great thing about silver rings is that they’re available in a variety of styles: from sleek and minimalist bands to intricate designs, silver rings cater to a wide range of tastes and can be personalised or customised easily.


The artisanal aesthetic of hammered effect rings offers a unique, non-industrial appearance that appeals to those seeking individuality. Keep a close eye on the appearance and the detailing of this ring as the hammered texture adds depth and character, catching the eye and light with its many facets. This style often appeals to individuals seeking a rugged or organic aesthetic to go hand in hand with their cool but casual approach.


More people are seeking durability and long lasting jewellery. Tungsten rings are highly scratch-resistant and durable, making them perfect for those with active lifestyles or hands-on jobs (although, we ALWAYS recommend removing your ring when undertaking any strenuous activities such as the gym, or when doing manual work to maintain the surface of the ring!). The sleek and polished appearance of tungsten rings gives them a contemporary edge and adding this modern-looking ring will tie any outfit together. Another great key factor about Tungsten is that it’s hypoallergenic, making it suitable for individuals with metal sensitivities. 


The Layering Trend was a hit in 2023 and this is one that will stay for a while! Jewellery lovers are increasingly embracing layered jewellery styles, and chain necklaces offer an easy way to jump on this trend. Chains come in various lengths and styles, allowing for personal expression through layering different chains or adding pendants. Chain necklaces are versatile and can be styled in ways that suit various gender expressions, appealing to a wide audience.
