Top Jewellery Trends for 2021
With jewellery, there’s usually no definite right or wrong way to wear the pieces you love! Despite there being a whole lot of jewellery trends to keep on top of, the most important thing is making that trend your own - with a bit of guidance from us here at Say it with Diamonds, of course.
We’re experts when it comes to all things jewellery, so we thought we’d put together a simple guide to help you navigate the top jewellery trends of 2021, that you can truly make your own!
With the end of lockdown on the horizon, it’s time to knock the dust off your jewellery box and give your collection some much needed TLC (and maybe a few new additions!)...
Diamonds are forever
It’s no secret that diamonds are a forever trend; they really are a girl’s best friend! You never need an excuse to be able to wear your favourite diamond pieces, but we’re glad they are (yet again) a HUGE trend this year.
If you’re looking to add some new sparkle to your collection, our Circle of Life range is a bestseller for a reason! Our Circle of Life necklaces feature a striking circle pendant and add that special touch of glamour to your everyday look. What more could you ask for?
Wanting something slightly more understated? Our one-of-a-kind Circle of Life earrings might just be for you. With the iconic circle of life symbol, these earrings are subtle, sweet and designed to add a touch of elegance to your collection. Staying on-trend has never been easier!
Layer it up
Layering and stacking jewellery is another trend we’re happy to see in 2021! When it’s done correctly, jewellery stacking can look effortless, chic and glam. But, done the wrong way and you risk looking like a little girl who’s been playing dress-up (not ideal).
Luckily for you, we know a thing or two about the latest jewellery trends. So naturally, we planned ahead.
Our Health, Wealth and Fortune costume stack is the perfect way to keep up with the layering trend! Our range of gorgeous costume stacks are made up of five eye-catching bracelets - each with its own unique charms, which make for a modern, chic look and add texture to any outfit.
Designed to be worn together or apart, we just can’t get enough. Oh, and did we mention they’re only £42.50! We also have necklaces in different lengths, which complement each other beautifully. Why not try one of our sterling silver chains teamed with our Forever Cross statement piece.
A pop of colour
After the year we’ve all had, it’s refreshing to see that colourful jewellery is set to become a top trend this year! If you’ve always been a fan of timeless classics like silver and gold, why not mix it up and try something new?
Our Birthstone Collection is the perfect way to add a subtle pop of colour to your much-loved pieces. A little bit of colour goes a long way; our unique gems come with their own special meaning and correspond with your birth month!
Shop our Birthstone Bracelet, Earrings or even just our colourful Pendants that can be added to any of your beloved treasures!
Pretty in Pearls
Pearls are a true classic and are really never far from the latest trends. But this year, pearls are taking centre stage and have made a comeback in a big way (everyone say thank you Harry Styles, circa 2019 Met Gala)!
Pearls have the ability to tie an outfit together! Simple but elegant, no matter the occasion, they are the perfect go-to. Our sterling silver Round Pearl earrings are only £55 and are ideal for transforming a simple everyday look into something special! If you struggle to keep up with jewellery trends, why not consider investing in a dazzling pearl statement piece which will never go out of style.
Pendants have made a huge impact this year, and we couldn’t be happier. From runways to high streets, pendants are taking over (yet again!).
Stay on-trend with our brand new pendant collection! These all-around classics are made from luxury sterling silver and plated with gold. Wear them alone or combine two trends in one and layer them up. Just like a classic locket, there’s room inside to keep a photo of a loved one so you can always keep them close to your heart.
Our sterling silver Locket Pendant is sentimental and timeless. Best paired with one of our beautiful chains, keep it simple and plain or add that personal touch with a free engraving of any message you choose!
Didn’t find what you were looking for? Whatever trend you’re after, we’ve got you covered! With our constantly growing collections, you can take your pick from the latest must-have rings, bracelets, necklaces and more.
Take a peek at our incredible bestsellers collection filled with beautiful pieces from us here at Say it with Diamonds, that’ll make you shine from the outside as well as within.
Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Let’s be honest; we don’t celebrate our lovely Mums as much as we should. When we think about how much they actually do for us, they definitely deserve an award, or better yet, a knighthood. All Mother figures deserve the world. And even though we’d love to give them that, we know that jewellery is the next best thing!
So this Mother’s Day, why not say thank you for all the times your mum has looked after, supported and showered you with endless amounts of love! It’s time to give back and gift her a sentimental piece from Say it with Diamonds that she can cherish forever.
No matter what your budget, we’ve put together a simple Mother’s Day gift guide to help you find the perfect present that will show her how you feel - today and every day.
Say it with... Silver
If you’re totally unsure about what she likes, then look no further! It’s near impossible to go wrong with silver jewellery. Undoubtedly a timeless classic, silver jewellery is adaptable and complements every colour. Why not treat her to a sparkling silver SIWD’s piece this Mother’s Day, which is bound to make her stand out in a crowd!
Nothing says unique quite like a customised Birthstone Bracelet- they bring the wearer good luck and protection. If you’re on a budget, our beautiful bracelets are only £47.50 and make for an elegant yet understated gift that your Mother figure can cherish eternally.
Another one of our silver spotlight stealers is the Sterling Silver Heart Locket (which is only £75!). As an all-around classic, this heart-shaped locket makes for the perfect Mother’s Day gift. With both sides having space for a photograph, she’ll be able to keep her loved ones close to her heart at all times. And if you’re looking to add that little bit extra, you can get the locket engraved for free! It's the little things that matter, after all.
Diamonds are forever
Why not treat her to the thing that we’re best known for… Diamonds! As well as being breathtakingly beautiful, diamond jewellery is entirely versatile, so she’ll be able to wear our pieces with absolutely anything, no matter what the occasion! Our diamond pieces are uniquely designed and effortlessly tie an outfit together. It really is true what they say; diamonds are a girl’s best friend (take it from us!).
Leave her speechless with our classic 9ct Gold Claw Set Circle Of Life necklace. This one-of-a-kind piece represents never-ending love which no doubt makes it an ideal Mother’s Day gift. Made from 9-carat white gold with high-quality diamonds, there’s no surprise that it’s one of our bestsellers!
Another one of our diamond must-haves is our Sterling Silver - Winged Diamond Earrings. As part of our winged collection, these earrings match the initial ring and necklaces perfectly. Subtle and sweet, these make for a simple but meaningful gift that is guaranteed to make her light up this Mother’s Day!
One of a kind
Sometimes the best gifts are the personal and sentimental ones. If you’re struggling to find a gift that expresses how you feel, why not consider getting one of our elegant pieces engraved with a personal message. Make your gift to her as unique as she is, and tell her how much you appreciate everything she does!
Our Broken Heart Necklace for Two is the perfect sentimental gift - and it’s only £110 for both of them! Made from sterling silver, this necklace is a great way to say that no matter how far apart you are, you’ll always be together in heart. And why not make it even more special and add a personalised message or initials?
We hope this guide helped you to narrow down your search for the perfect Mother’s Day gift! But, if you’re still unsure, don’t worry. We’ve created a Mother’s Day edit filled with even more gifts for you to choose from, so rest assured, you’ll be able to find her the perfect piece you’re looking for.
Men’s Jewellery: Introducing the Men’s Edit
We are beyond excited to introduce you to Say it with Diamonds’ debut range of men’s jewellery. Our Men’s Edit products aim to replicate the same sort of style, luxury and quality of our women’s pieces, but with a fresh selection of more masculine items.
Boys: Say it with Diamonds may have been your wife or girlfriend’s little secret, but the new range means you can fully embrace the luxury of SIWD, with a manly twist! Full of timeless classics, we’re confident that our men’s jewellery will become part of your go-to statement pieces. Whether it’s a new one for your wish list or you’re a partner searching for gifts for him, discover some of our hand-picked highlights from the new collection.
We’re starting with a simple and sleek, yet bold and stand-out item. The taupe cuff is an ideal finishing touch when paired with other accessories such as a designer watch or bracelet with detailing. Featuring two polished metal spheres and an open cuff, it’s a minimalistic choice that will add a certain something to your look without making your wrist appear cluttered. Available in silver or yellow gold plated, choose the one that matches your style. Shop the taupe cuff, which comes with free UK delivery as standard, here.
An iconic piece that’s a sign of faith, leadership and strength, the crucifix has become more than a religious symbol. The necklace can be worn with almost any day-to-day look or most night out or formal outfits. The pendant comes either on its own or on a chain matching the pendant colour - yellow gold plated or silver. (Psst… if you’re shopping for a “His and Hers” twinning opportunity, get the new crucifix necklace and match it with one of our top-selling existing women’s cross necklaces!)
Men’s 5mm Wedding Band
No item of jewellery in your collection is as important as this next piece. The run-up to your wedding will surely feature plenty of shopping for new rings: the engagement ring, her wedding band, and, of course, yours. You might forget the importance of your ring, so make sure you make the right decision - a classic piece, understated and wearable with everything. Our classic 5mm band is the perfect way to seal your love with your partner. Available in platinum, 9-carat or luxury 18-carat gold, you’re sure to find a metal to suit your style. Plus, when it comes to shopping for those big moments, Say it with Diamonds can’t be beaten on our excellent customer service. Shop our men’s wedding band here.
Saint Christopher Pendant
The image of St Christopher represents a guiding light and protection against the challenges of a journey. Known as the patron saint of travel and often given as a token of good luck for those embarking on long trips, this pendant is an ideal gift for the men in your life who love to explore the world. Ideal even for those guys who don’t wear a whole lot of jewellery, it’s small enough to fit in their hand luggage or their gap year backpack when they want to take it off. If you’re an international man of mystery, this pendant is the sort of style you need around your neck.
Nothing says men’s fashion like the timeless trend of army dog tag necklaces. Military fashion just doesn’t seem to date, so a simple piece like this can essentially be a part of your wardrobe forever. The sleek, curved metal design of the tag is modern enough to look new forever, too. If this is a gift, why not consider adding an engraving for that personalised touch? Regardless, this piece comes with free delivery to the UK as standard. Check out the options and shop today.
These are just a few of our top picks of products from the brand new collection. If you like what you see so far, why not browse the full collection here? With a growing collection of bracelets, necklaces, rings and more, we’re sure you’ll find something that’s your style.

Gold vs Silver Jewellery: Which One Is Right For Me?
It’s an age-old debate, isn’t it? Gold or Silver jewellery - how do you know which looks best on you? Both look beautiful in their own unique ways, but at times it can seem almost impossible to choose between them. Trust us; we’ve all been there!
It’s no secret that picking out the right jewellery can effortlessly tie a look together. It can instantly lift an outfit from a 6 to a 10 in a matter of seconds. So, we decided to create a simple guide to help you *finally* decide which type of jewellery would be best suited to you.
Oh, and we’ve also added in a few SIWD jewellery recommendations for you to treat yourself to - because who says you need to have a reason? (you’re welcome).
Sleek in Silver
Silver has such a unique quality to it. It can glimmer and reflect light like no other metal, which makes it versatile as well as beautiful.
Silver jewellery best complements those with cooler skin tones and makes for the perfect day-to-day go-to. If you don’t already know what kind of skin tone you have, if the veins on your wrist are blue and you tend to burn easily, you most likely have a cool skin tone!
Because silver matches nearly every colour, you don’t have to worry about your gorgeous jewellery not matching your fave everyday outfit! Transform any look with beautiful silver pieces which will make a much needed new addition to your jewellery collection. The sparkling finish of silver is guaranteed to make you stand out, and it looks even more beautiful paired with bold or icy and metallic coloured make-up.
One of our absolute fave silver pieces is our Circle of Life Necklace made with sterling silver and CZ diamond stones! An elegant silver pendant designed to elevate any look - and it’s only £45!
Gold jewellery is a classic favourite. If you have more of a warm skin tone (your veins will usually look more green in colour) and you tan quite easily, gold is definitely the one for you!
Unlike other metals, gold has the natural ability to glow. When paired with warm or darker skin tones, it can create a really striking statement look. Outfits with rich and earthy tones complement gold jewellery beautifully! Bright colours really make the gold pop, making gold jewellery an absolute must when making a statement.
Team gold pieces with your favourite outfit and opt for an understated, classic make-up look to make it shine through. One of our go-to gold pieces is the Yellow Gold Plated Winged Initial Necklace which makes for a personal touch and a nice little twist on an old classic!
Best of both
If you’re in split minds between silver and gold, or maybe you can’t decide on your skin tone, rose gold is the perfect solution!
Rose gold and copper coloured jewellery tend to suit most people, no matter their skin tone. These pieces are so versatile because they go with everything and will instantly brighten up your jewellery collection. Our Winged Initial Necklace also comes in rose gold!
Still can’t decide? We don’t blame you! Just because individual jewellery suits certain skin tones more, doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing the timeless pieces you love. Picking out jewellery that makes you feel happy and confident is all that really matters!
Why not browse our lovely bestselling jewellery to see which stands out to you.
