The idea of a ‘capsule wardrobe’ is nothing new within the fashion world, and the trend is equally effective with jewellery; creating a collection of pieces that work with any outfit and for any occasion is a great way to ensure you always look put-together and polished. A jewellery staple is by no means a dull option, as a simple, elegant piece that is worn every day can be layered with extra pieces to become the focal point of an ensemble.

For this edit, we have selected some of our favourite staple pieces – the perfect designs to either complement an existing collection or to begin a capsule wardrobe of classic, wearable pieces (while still leaving room for a statement piece or two).

Stack 'em high

More is more when it comes to an earring collection. The trend for stacking is here to stay, and whether you like to adorn with hoops or a statement stud, we have the perfect designs to accessorise your ears.

The ultimate style perennial, the hoop earring is an essential piece for any collection. A simple nine-carat yellow-gold huggie hoop is the perfect timeless design to build a jewellery box around. Diamonds will, of course, catch every eye, and Roberto Coin’s Love in Verona collection displays the brand’s iconic flower motif in diamonds, set into the 18-carat yellow gold of the earring. The drop earring is synonymous with sophistication and femininity, displaying the silhouette of a hoop with an extra glistening diamond suspended below, perfectly framing the face.

Of course, the stud earring is truly ageless in style and can effortlessly take you from desk to dinner. Letting our exclusive Goldsmiths Brightest Diamond to do the talking, our 18-carat white-gold diamond earrings are an understated yet undeniably elegant staple.

Perfect Symmetry

Another trend that has transcended the decades and various fashion eras is the bangle. The simple circlet round the wrist, whether worn alone or as a tinkling stack, is certain to look as good in 20 years as it does today. As with the hoops, an uninterrupted circle of gold will always elevate an outfit Having a matching set in your jewellery box, such as the Roberto Coin Love in Verona collection, will always result in a put-together look and can be the perfect way to dress up an outfit. If white gold is more your style, our diamond-set design is a versatile yet striking piece thanks to the brilliant-cut diamonds set into the gold.

Creative Curation

The layering of rings is another trend seen all over the fashion pages. The maximalist approach is to embrace coloured stones, layering differing gemstone cuts and wearing differing sizes to ensure the display is the first thing someone notices. The minimalist way, however, is to adhere to a colour palette. Delicate bands are popular for layering, with a few special pieces added in to complete the look. Of course, exquisite jewellery will never go out of style – a simple and elegant diamond ring will be a staple for generations, becoming an heirloom that will be passed down and cherished through every fashion trend.
