Is statement jewellery on trend?
Statement jewellery is always in style, as it encompasses so many different jewellery styles and designs. It’s also the perfect way to lean into the resurgence of trends including jewellery styles from the 70s and 2000s, in a way that feels right for now.
Statement jewellery really refers to any piece that’s designed to make a bold and noticeable impact, whether it’s a chunky chain necklace, a statement ring, or bold hoop earrings.
Statement jewellery also comes in a range of materials, from precious metals to costume jewellery materials. At Medley, our statement-making jewels are crafted in genuine materials including 10k gold and 925 sterling silver, as well as 18k gold-plated sterling silver, for bold pieces that combine lasting beauty and affordability.
With so many options to choose from, it’s safe to say that statement jewellery will always be on trend, because you can find the perfect pieces to suit your personal style and to elevate various outfits and occasions.
What are the types of statement jewellery?
You can find almost any jewellery style in a statement size and design. Here are some of the key types to look for when styling a bold, impactful look:
These are generally chunky, stand-out necklaces which can be either short in length, such as a choker, or longer. Trending statement necklaces include heavyweight chains such as chunky paperclip chains, rope chains, snake chains, and ball chains. You can also build on your statement piece by adding a charm, or even layering pendants.

How to wear statement jewellery
Make a bold statement with your jewellery look. Check out our top seven styling tips for statement jewellery, featuring our trending textured and ball jewellery pieces.
1. Layered Necklaces
Elevate a simple t-shirt or sweater, bring a playful edge to a tailored blazer, or add personality to your date night outfit. Yep, a layered statement necklace look can do all of this. Start with your statement necklace (we suggest our boyfriend paperclip chain, chunky paperclip chain, or chunky ball necklace). Add an extra layer, either shorter or longer than your focal point necklace to achieve the look you want. Want more? Build up to three layers, mixing your lengths, textures, and weights.
2. Curated Ear
3. Stacked Rings
4. Layered Bracelets
it’s a bold eclectic stack to complement bare skin in summer, or an artful layer over the top of long sleeves. Start with two pieces – we always love the look of classic gold paperclip chain bracelet or a plain gold bangle paired with a statement gold bracelet for a chic contrast of textures (or pair two silver pieces, if that’s your preference); add a chain bracelet with a diamond tennis bracelet; or mix a few bracelets in different chain types – the possibilities are endless.
5. The Everything Stack
6. Mixed Metals
This is the part where we break the aforementioned golden rule of jewellery styling (who has time for rules, anyway?). To ensure your mixed-metal stack looks effortless and intentional, even out your metals: for instance, layer even amounts of gold and silver bracelets. You can play with a combination of jewellery designs throughout your mixed-metal stack: our chunky and bold paperclip bracelets and curve bangles are perfect for creating a bold colour-blocked look. Mixing your metals also presents plenty of opportunities to play, so experiment with mixing your colours, your textures, and your styles, for a completely individual look.
7. Add Diamonds
The perfect way to finish off any jewellery look, including a statement stack, is with diamonds. The most versatile (and precious) gem, you can find a range of fine diamond styles at Medley that pair perfectly with your favourite statement jewels, for luxe sparkle and added texture. Choose from 10k gold or 925 sterling silver settings to match your bold metal styles. For this ear stack we’ve paired our textured hoops and huggies with a diamond stud and textured ear cuff, for a fun yet elevated look.
Statement jewellery is an everlasting trend, because you can choose the styles, materials, and designs that express your personal style and that elevate your look for any season. Discover the perfect, bold jewellery styles to add to your stack with our modern yet timeless pieces.
