SWEET SENTIMENTS: JEWELLERY WITH MEANING

We love a good jewellery trend, and if there’s one we’re loving more than all the others rn, it’s coloured gems. Meaningful stones are an extra special way to make it count. So, if you’re looking for jewellery with significance, then you’re going to love our new talisman collection…

16 September 2021 Editor - H. Samuel

We might be biased, but jewellery is by far one of the most personal purchases we can make; from birthdays and Christmas to graduations, christenings, and anniversaries, barely a momentous occasion goes by that doesn’t warrant a jewel to say congratulations or I love you. And although all jewellery is personal, nothing says it better than a coloured gemstone that has a specific meaning to you (or them).

More and more of us are looking for jewellery that reflects our own individuality and unique stories. And, in the world of sweet sentiments, coloured gems are taking centre stage. Each stone is symbolic, and often sentimental—like the jewellery equivalent of a scrapbook, gemstones are collected as wearable memories that can make necklaces, bracelets and earrings mean more.

And if that’s not enough, a swell of modern magpies (including the likes of Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid) are turning us green with envy as they don bright gems on the red carpet. So, to keep you up to date with this season’s most sought-after trend, we’re leading the way with a new coloured gemstone collection, we know you’re going to love.

Find Your North Star

Look once for colourful gemstone appreciation, and twice for a full hit of talismanic star power that is instantly recognisable. The H. Samuel buyers have poured their energies into creating a 22-piece jewellery edit that provides a spirit-lifting tonic from the heavens.

The newly launched 18ct gold vermeil diamond and coloured gemstone collection, Find Your North Star, is inspired by nature's most infallible guide, the north star. Capturing its illuminating essence via a star-shaped talisman, necklaces, earrings and bracelets are designed to provide a sense of guidance and protection to its wearer. After all, during this rocky time of social discord, who doesn’t want a little extra good juju while navigating these unsteady waters?

Joining the navigational symbolism, are natural stones that come with meaningful sentiments. Thanks to their spiritual nature (and a welcome dose of colour), porcelain mother-of-pearl, lush malachite and lustrous sodalite add a powerful pop, but which one speaks to you? Read on to find out the story behind the stones.

Pearl power

A powerful stone, mother-of-pearl gives the gift of well-being, prosperity, imagination and protection – aka the ultimate self-love investment. The stone that propels and protects through the hard times, look to mother-of-pearl as your guardian angel in gem form.

Cool cat

Soothe your soul with sodalite, a stone that couples its calming influence with confidence-boosting sentiments for all the ‘you got this’ moments. Wear every day to restore emotional balance and heighten intuition (and as a daily reminder to seize the day). Combining a dreamy blue colour with down to earth durability, we can’t find anything not to like about this gorgeous stone, to be honest.

Meaningful muse

Bring the good vibes with malachite, the bold green stone that also absorbs negativity and opens the heart to unconditional love. What a dreamboat. A new everyday armour, the green packs a powerful punch with a strong ‘keep me safe’ vibe. Whether you’re into their meaning or just want to lend your look some colour, these pieces are made to be layered together for the ultimate expression of individuality that stands out from the crowd.

Sentimental stacks

If you’ve had an eye on the jewellery trends of late, you might have noticed stacking is BIG right now. From layers upon layers of gold chains to coloured pendants paired with dainty bracelets; layering has become an art form that our favourite It girls (looking at you Hailey Bieber) have quickly mastered. Get inspired and look to the Find Your North Star collection to build your own layered look that speaks for itself this season. Here are our top tips on how to achieve the trend that everyone’s talking about.

  1. Play with texture by mixing and matching different style chains with one another so each individual piece stands out.
  2. Coloured enamel adds a welcome pop of colour. It makes for the perfect starting point when layering, as it breaks up all the gold.
  3. Length is key: layer different length chains to let each necklace have its own moment and shine.
  4. Add a locket for some nostalgic charm. Let it be your focal point and build from there. Plus, lockets are one of the most sentimental pieces of all because of what can be kept inside them.
