From the statement earrings we wore to virtual birthday drinks to the bold gold necklace we used to jazz up the same old work shirt, we’ve all relied more heavily on our bling this year. And personally, it’s one lockdown habit we don’t plan to let go of.

When it comes to gold, more is more. And with layering and stacking continuing to be the hottest trend of the season, it’s all about making a statement by piling your details high. Whether you’re into necklaces, earrings, bracelets (or all the above) three jewellery brands hit the proverbial nail on the head when it comes to #stylestacklayer. From layered necklaces to stacked earrings – you’ll be tempted to buy them all. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.) Keep reading to find out which trends (and brands) we can’t get enough of right now.

Who doesn’t love the look of a carefully curated selection of layered necklaces? Everyone from Hailey Bieber and Khloe Kardashian to Bruno Mars and The Weekend are fans. Luckily, the talented buyers here at H. Samuel are clued up on what you want and have created a new collection of gold chains, so it’s just as well layering necklaces is super on-trend, because we don’t think we could choose just one. Whether you opt for two, three or more, from everyday belchers and statement chunky curbs to rigid ropes and delicate figaro links, these necklaces are the perfect finishing touches, that don’t cost the earth.

The layered look is one that everyone can master. However, while it may at first seem like a carefree and random process, choosing which pieces to include in your collection is more like an art form. Whether you’re styling delicate chains for minimal accessorising or going bold by combining all your favourites, layering always makes for a jewellery look that is simultaneously personalised and elegant. Not to mention, once you have a well-stocked selection, mixing and matching your pieces makes for an endless number of unique jewellery looks.

Want to get the look? Here’s our guide to layering…

  1. Master the base - Choose your first piece and use this to anchor your look. This should be the thickest chain that makes a statement and allows you to layer around it.
  2. Remember the rule of three - Three necklaces, three different lengths, three different weights, three different links – a super fine cable chain gives you very different look to a chunky curb or slinky snake chain, but they work perfectly together.
  3. Mix metals - Yellow gold is a hot topic at the moment but mixing in silver and white gold will show off your style credentials.
  4. Finish with a focal point - Add a pendant or charm necklace to draw the eye and create focus. Whether it’s a St Christopher, a crucifix, or a birthstone this is the finishing touch that feels personal.

Bonus: This layering look doesn't just stop with your neck. Stacking bracelets and earrings will allow you to continue the trend and create a style that feels effortlessly cool and unique to you.

Curated ear with Ania Haie

Call it a curated ear, constellation piercings, or ear scaping, there’s no denying that it’s the trend du jour, and we’re all for it. Essentially multiple piercings, a scroll through Instagram will prove that the combinations are endless—they’re truly works of art. Whether you like to go minimal with a cluster of tiny huggies or bold with thick hoops cascading down your lobes, it’s all about unleashing your individuality.

If you’ve already joined the movement (or planning to hop on the bandwagon), the next step is to find your style. Not sure where to start? We recommend looking to Ania Haie to host your ear party, from plain huggies to edgy spiky hoops, this brand has them all.

With over 61k followers on Instagram, Ania Haie is undoubtedly one of the leading jewellery brands for the #curatedear movement, and it’s not hard to understand why — its ultra-chic earrings are the perfect jewellery for day-to-night wear. Are these accessories, or are they art? It’s hard to say. Intricate yet sculptural, simple yet aspirational, personally, we can’t wait to show off these gold hoops on sun-kissed skin this season.

Bonus: The wide selection of Ania Haie’s hoops and huggies at H. Samuel means you can mix and match metals and styles to your heart’s content.

Stack ‘em up arm candy with Olivia Burton

Want to change up your jewellery game this season? Try your hand at the art of bracelet stacking – it’s easier than you may think, thanks to British brand Olivia Burton. Combine pendants, go ahead and mix gold and silver, and keep them dainty. The great thing about this trend is there is only one rule – more is more. You can keep it simple and layer lots of similar styles for a polished look or do the opposite and make a statement, layering lots of dainty bracelets with pendants to create a more personalised style.
