Love your layers: Hot Diamonds X Jac Jossa

Jac Jossa’s much-loved collab with Hot Diamonds is here and it’s everything our jewellery box needs, and more. Inspired by Jac’s love of gold, the three fashionable collections: Soul, Hope, and Embrace, are designed to be stacked, styled and layered in your own way, for any jewellery lover's dream.

Clothing collections by Jac Jossa – the 29 year-old actress and jungle queen turned fashion designer whose pieces have been a hit with fellow celebs Charlotte Crosby, Ferne McCann and Billie Faiers – are all about self-love and body positivity. So, it won't come as a surprise that her collab with Berkshire-based, fashion jewellery brand Hot Diamonds celebrates fun, self-expression and all-round positive vibes.

Minimalists look away now, whilst every design is beautiful when worn solo, the mantra is more-is-more, and the collection becomes truly mesmerising when the layering starts. Its key aim? ‘Just do you’, says Jac. So, if you’re anything like us, you’ll pile yourself high in made-to-stack necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings – which all look far more expensive than their price tags actually are (thanks to the savvy use of gold-plating). For that extra attention to detail, each piece (except the chains) has Hot Diamonds' signature diamond handset within it – the everlasting mark of eternal love. Swoon.

The collection lets gold tell the story with bold shapes – that ‘have a can-do attitude' – and can't-help-but-want-to-touch textures. We can’t find one piece we wouldn’t wear, from the new-look hoops and ear cuffs to the pretty chains and chokers. If that sounds like music to your ears, don’t waste any time – it’s selling fast.

Made up of three collections, each one tells its own story: Soul is all about organic, soft shapes and touches of mother-of-pearl; Hope's sunburst designs and pops of malachite are positive and optimistic; while Embrace ties it all together with pieces made for layering – think delicate chokers, bold links and statement chains. Read on to find out more about each one.

Soul Collection

The Soul Collection

‘I wanted to create a soft and gentle vibe for ‘Soul’. These jewels look stunning worn individually, but amazingly special when layered with the link chains from ‘Embrace’ or the more linear designs from ‘Hope’. Just have fun with it all and find a look that works for you!’

All about gentle curves, Soul is soft, natural, and very tactile. Gone are the days of super-thin stacking rings (for now), as chunkier, textured ones take their place for everyday glam. Stones like mother-of-pearl bring an Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's vibe – especially when worn together for matching pearl jewellery (the must-have look this summer). Mix the positive energies of pearl with the celestial Lunar pendants for a look that serves serious talismanic appeal.

'For me, jewellery needs to look beautiful, but it goes deeper than that. It should also tell a story. It’s a way to express yourself. To make a statement.'

While constellation piercings have been around for a minute now, to save ourselves pain and pennies, we're turning our attention to ear cuffs. The ultimate low-commitment earring, the double ear cuffs are a no-brainer – and they look like two earrings for an undeniable edge. Plus, we’re delighted to see the return of the bangle, for a go-for-bold arm stack that will instantly update your look.

Hope Collection

The Hope Collection

‘Hope’ is all about optimism and positive energy – something very close to my heart! It’s contemporary, on-trend and particularly fabulous when layered up with ‘Soul’ and ‘Embrace’ – have a play, that’s what layering is all about!’

A striking contrast to Soul’s soft, organic pieces, Hope is all about feel-good vibes (something very close to Jac’s heart). Bold sunburst shapes and feather textures have an on-trend celestial vibe. Jewellery with motifs like the sun, moons, stars, and constellations, spark a sense of joy and magic, and are associated with luck, love, and protection so with their reach-for-the-stars look, it’s no wonder the Believe and Hope Halo pendant are a popular choice. Why not mix it up and add the Spirit pendant too?

'When it comes to layering, there are no rules, that’s why it’s so fun. It’s so individual. Everyone is different, and, every day is different, so, just go with it.'

Thanks to their significant meanings, coloured gemstones – specifically malachite – are having a major moment right now. Said to absorb negative energy, it makes complete sense why the lush green stone is a popular choice for jewellery lovers. Tapping into the trend, expect pops of malachite bursting onto the scene in the form of earrings and pendants. And, if you didn’t know it’s the natural birthstone for May – the perfect present right there. We can’t tell you how many compliments you’ll get in these pieces. They’re just so cool and unique. You’ll see…

Embrace Collection

The Embrace Collection

I absolutely adore mixing up delicate chokers with bold links and statement chains and that’s what ‘Embrace’ is all about. Experiment with different lengths, precious metal finishes and make it yours! You’re going to look amazing!’

We all know that staples like a white tee or black boots are the pieces everyone will likely have in their wardrobes. But what about accessories? You should think about jewellery – and more specifically necklaces – in the same way. Everyday essentials that don’t date, easy additions that will always lift said white tee on the daily. Enter: Embrace.

I like to start with a delicate choker, add a pop of colour in the middle (like malachite or mother-or-pearl) then anchor the look with a longer statement link chain.

There’s a good chance you’re already familiar with these absolute layering essentials (they’re popular), but we’re going to sing its praises anyway. It’s what gives you that on-trend layering vibe. Serving serious stacking inspo, throw on the Statement Singapore chain with the Droplet Cable choker, and you’ll see what we mean. But it’s not just about the links. As soon as you add a pop of malachite from Soul, you’ll be well and truly in the zone. Scroll for the perfect #stackinggoals line-up.
