Now that we can do things like go out for dinner, visit the cinema, theatre and museums and even have friends over, we’re embracing the fun side of fashion once again. So long plain, boring and dull, and hello bright, fun and joyful fashion.
We’ve already been indulging ourselves in joyful clothing and now we want to extend that same energy to our jewellery, too.
The best part of the joyful jewellery trend is that anything goes – from string of colourful rainbow beads to chunky neon rings; animal and bug motifs to fruit and smiley faces. So let’s take a walk on the fun side and discover 21 of our favourite pieces of joyful jewellery…
