Is silver the new gold ?

Sterling silver trend is bound to dominate street style and definitely inspire us for Winter.

By Marie-Caroline Selmer

While switching our closet into the Winter season we also happen to change our jewelry habits. Spotted on the runway, sterling silver is back on track.

The first question to ask is : why? Simply because this precious metal compliments the new season’s rainbow-bright color palette, from semi-precious stones to diamonds. It is also a less classical option but also lighter and cheaper than yellow gold which can sometimes clash colorful gems.

Charlotte Chesnais was the biggest hit of the last seasons such as Annelise Michelson or Harpo with its turquoise and Indian American inspiration.

The jeweler Sylvie Corbelin combines silver and diamonds in her ultra-feminine snake ring. Charming and mysterious, the snake wraps its charisma around your finger like a vibrant arabesque. Looking for contrasted pieces, the French designer isn’t afraid to mix oxidized silver with champagne diamonds and rubies set on yellow gold. This audacious Apollo ring, with its mythological accent, reminds of the ancient coins. A silver must-have for modern heroes.

Echoing the stacking jewelry trend, silver bangles are set to be big as they work so well when worn together. Just as the silver diamond cuff designed by Mad Lords for their Mad Precious line in its last and most precious collection. This delicate silver piece binds slighlty towards a shiny wave of perfect diamonds, black or white, depending your choice.

This sophisticate cuff perfectly matches Vanessa de Jaegher’s collection of bangles or, in a more edgy rock style, the double rounds silver bracelet from M Cohen. For those who love the silver tone but not the metal, Article 22 has conceived a tribal-inspired earrings range made of military Aluminum, an eco-friendly and super light material still pretty new in the jewelry world.
