Tracey Ellison

With a passion for all things exquisite, the renowned high jewelry blogger and influencer Tracey Ellison, aka TheDiamondsGirl, has crafted a virtual empire with a stellar 1.2 Million followers on Instagram. Tracey is accustomed to adorning herself with the biggest diamonds and the most precious jewelry in the world. She's a walking treasure chest! Plus, she's a regular at the most prestigious jewelry events, making her the ultimate go-to for trends.

1. Personalization remains strong!

Custom bracelets/designs incorporating initials or words that are meaningful. For example, I wear a Stephanie Gottlieb slider bangle that has pavé diamond initials of my children, as well as my four favorite diamond shapes! Recent events I’ve attended have been full of jewelry that can be customized. Wearers are looking for that personal connection with their pieces!

2. Gold, gold, gold!

People talk about a swing back to platinum, but I’m not seeing it take hold yet! Instead, I’m seeing lots of yellow and rose-colored gold!

3. Titanium…. In all colors!

More and more jewelers are creating pieces using titanium, in shades of pink, black, blue, and more. Because the metal is light, it is perfect for chunky, bold pieces, which would otherwise be uncomfortable to wear due to the weight of the metal. I recently tried on an incredible pair of Glenn Spiro titanium earrings, thinking they would pull my ear right down, but because the diamonds were set in titanium, it sat perfectly on my ears!

4. Yummy colored gemstones!

Even an avid diamond lover like myself cannot resist the allure of beautiful gemstones. I saw a Padparadsha sapphire ring at David Morris in London that was the perfect combination of pink with yellow undertones, I literally want to eat it then and there!

5. Less layering… more meaning!

I’ve always been drawn to jewelry that’s designed to be worn layered together with other pieces. In the last five years, layering has become an art, with necklaces and bracelets being worn in stacks, that blend together to stunning effect. But lately…I’m seeing a move towards a simpler approach, with wearers opting for a single beautiful necklace/ bracelet/ ring, instead of heaping it all on, and losing the ability to see what’s being worn!

1. Layering

Layering fine and high jewellery creations is the ultimate contemporary vehicle for self-expression. We've seen a proliferation of layered styles, including some unique pieces in Louis Vuitton's Deep Time Chapter I High Jewellery collection (notably the Rupture and Fossils necklaces). Back in 2022, I referred to this as the 'neck mess' trend, although it has been considerably refined since the aesthetic took off on social media and among celebrities. This trend is all about injecting personality into jewellery looks and stepping away from more reserved, classical styles. It is dominated by neckwear, although stacked and layered bracelets, rings and 'ear party' styles also fit into the theme well.

2. Maximalism

Following on from layering, one of the biggest trends in High Jewellery right now is maximalism and boldly proportioned, voluminous and three-dimensional jewels. We've seen examples at all the big houses, including De Beers, Boucheron, David Morris and Gucci, but examples are also coming through at all the significant trade events, such as Vicenzaoro, Inhorgenta and the Doha Jewellery And Watches Exhibition. And this isn't simply colourless diamond maximalism, but coloured gemstones, oversized cabochons, and blown-up forms thanks to lightweight materials like aluminium and titanium. It's material innovations that are making these eye-catching sizes and silhouettes possible.

3. Unconventional Cuts

First, it was oval-shaped diamonds pushing round brilliant-cut gems off their top spot, but now brands and designers are becoming more ambitious when it comes to fancy cuts. I've seen a proliferation of branded diamond cuts, such as the Louis Vuitton Monogram Star diamond and the Movál® diamond (a cross between an oval and marquise cut) at Rahaminov Diamonds. However, we're now entering the age of rose- and portrait-cut diamonds, plus unusual shield, kite and triangular-shaped diamonds that allow for different geometries. I predict that soft and sensual rose cuts are yet to reach their peak in the market, so I think these are the ones to watch.

4. Rough Diamonds

Speaking of diamonds, there are some inspiring examples of rough stones being used creatively by designers, notably at Leo Wittwer and Frieden Swiss Jewellers. Of course, De Beers has been adding to its Talisman High Jewellery collection for many years, but I see this creative combination of rough and polished diamonds proliferating over time. As collectors become more interested in the provenance and origin of their minerals, there's something authentic and 'back to basics' about incorporating 'raw' diamonds into precious jewels - a homage to the shapes and colours that nature, rather than man, can create.

5. Forever Nature

Nature is a ubiquitous theme in High Jewellery and in jewellery more generally. To say it is a 'current' trend is not strictly true, as it has never really gone away! But what's special about nature as a design theme is how much pressure it puts on creatives to come up with something new. Look to Chaumet and its 2024 Un Air de Chaumet High Jewellery collection, complete with the Ballet ear cuff and matching brooches/hair jewels designed to look like swallows in flight. Examples of nature reimagined and reinvented are everywhere, although more literal interpretations are the draw for 2024. Why have a figurative interpretation of nature when a literal one will do?!

1. Mob Wife Aesthetic

With the rise of the mob wife aesthetic on TikTok, I think we’ll be seeing super chunky jewelry this year. The chunkiness could come from gold, diamonds, pearls, etc. Anything that screams “mob wife!”

2. Anklets

Anklets are back in. I don’t make the rules- Rihanna does! She’s been rocking chunky diamond anklets all around Paris fashion week.




3. Necklace Stacking

Every red carpet since the 2023 Met Gala has introduced some sort of necklace stack. More specifically, tennis necklace stacking. While not all of us can stack the way Margot Robbie does, there definitely is a way in for everyone!




4. Bows

We all thought coquette-core would be a short-lived TikTok trend. However, if the Chanel runway taught us anything, it’s that bows are here to stay.
