While the excitement for Haute Couture Week lingers, the industry’s spotlight has shifted to the emergence of Paris Fashion Week 2024 collections as certain designers veer away from the traditional fashion calendar - which takes place at the end of February. Among them, Alaïa has chosen an intimate presentation of its summer-fall 2024 collection, while The Row has forgone a traditional runway show and released an early lookbook for its fall 2024 collection.

While enthusiasm roams around the streets of Paris, fashion insiders have already been offering sneak peeks of the latest jewelry trends of 2024. Carrying on the essence of quiet luxury, a relatively toned-down accessorizing approach was adopted by most fashionistas this year. Read on for The Future Rocks Editorial Team’s take on some of the emerging jewelry trends for 2024.

The Classic Hoops

Let’s be honest, nothing gets more gender-neutral than hoop earrings. You could be a girl boss in your 30s stepping out for a quick cup of coffee, or a teenage boy in your coming-of-age years trying to impress a girl with the coolest ensemble, or in this case, Kelz2busy ready to grace KidSuper’s Menswear Fall/Winter 2024-2025 FROW with his presence. It is an understatement to say a simple pair of single hoop earrings practically works for anyone, anywhere, on any occasion. As they say, always go for hoop earrings when in doubt.

Made from 18k recycled gold, Rêver’s mini handcrafted hoop earrings that elegantly hug the ear are designed for understated and easy everyday wear.

Clean take with a sparkle

No, you don’t have to put on an eclectic outfit to rock gold hoop earrings with a dash of diamonds. But yes, you’re most welcome to style up your accessories game like the gentleman in the image below. While Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY’s chunky beanie is not for everyone, there are a variety of fashion styles out there for you to find your jam.

Like Prmal’s Small Pave Hoop Earrings, minimal and mindfully made, this pair features a row of petite lab-grown diamonds set on 10K gold.

Hello darkness, my old friend

I bet everyone has (had) their black fashion phase. Okay, that is, unless you’re David Hockney. Not only does black look effortlessly good on almost everyone, but it also adds edge to an outfit that no other color does. While some like to style an all-black outfit with solid white gold/ sterling silver accessories, Akimoto Kozue took a slightly unconventional path for Yohji Yamamoto’s Menswear Show. Keeping it black from head to toe (quite literally), it’s safe to say Kozue was channeling her inner Wednesday for the streets of Paris.

Adding an exciting twist to its Double Line Earrings collection, Rêver’s Black Double Line Hoops play with black rhodium for a highly reflective effect while keeping it minimal. Making them the perfect pair for all the Wednesday wannabes out there.

Be Square, and be there!

While an edgier silhouette is not typical for oval-shaped hoop earrings, it’s not a crime to be adventurous (and conscious, of course) with how you style yourself. Framing one’s face with slightly more weight than the classic small hoops, this gentleman is the perfect example of how alternative styling choices aren’t only for the ladies.

Being one of the few pairs of hoop earrings in a rectangular shape sitting on the shelves of The Future Rocks, Loyal.e’s Ride+love Medium Pavée Earrings offer just the right amount of character with a dash of conscious lab-grown diamonds, adding up to 0.23 ct.

If you like it then you should’ve put a cuff on it

We should all know by now that ear cuffs are most definitely in this season - don’t just take my word for it - take it from Kevin Wang, Head of Editorial Content at GQ Taiwan, outside of the Paris Fashion Week 2024 Loewe Show. Don’t get scared just yet, being one of the most style-friendly accessories out there, you don’t need an outfit as well-put-together as Wang’s for an ear cuff to make sense.

These Loev Eternity Black Enamel Hoops will take you from day to night. Excellent and contemporary contrast of black enamel and 18K recycled gold with a total weight of 1.4ct of brilliant-cut lab-grown diamonds
