5 reasons why the ‘barely there’ jewellery trend isn’t going anywhere

At NAJO we love to make jewellery that helps confident women tell their personal style story. Often this means large statement cuffs, collars and sculptural pendants in substantial, gleaming sterling silver with show-stopping detail. These are the signature NAJO profiles that are part of our DNA and which continue to be as popular as ever.

Feeling fine

However, as designers NAJO will always track the trajectory of fashion, and we readily embraced the petite jewellery trend that has grown steadily over the past several years. Think fine chains with miniature pendants measuring little more than a few millimetres; whisper-thin necklaces that just graze the collarbone, and tiny stud earrings that offer little more than a glimmer from afar.

What is it about these fresh, contemporary designs that have proved so enduring in the fickle world of fashion? Here are our thoughts.

1. Ease and comfort.

Fine jewellery is so lightweight, it’s easy to forget you’re even wearing it – great for active women who love to exercise, new mums, and anyone doing physically taxing work who still enjoys wearing beautiful design.

2. Born to layer.

The world first went crazy for the layered fine necklace trend when Carrie Bradshaw stacked her tiny diamond horseshoe necklace with a host of others. Today, the layering trend continues to appeal because it’s a perfect way to personalise your look, mixing metals for two-tone appeal, and stacking pendants of different lengths.

3. A little goes a long way.

These small-scale pieces take less material to craft, making them well-priced and great value whatever your budget.

4. Oh so fine.

Delicate jewellery accentuates your personal assets rather than masking them. It’s what makes this look such a winner with models and fashion’s it-girls. Flawless skin needs nothing but a fine thread of polished sterling silver to bring it to life.

5. Go anywhere.

This refined jewellery selection works equally as well with jeans and sneakers as with a silk evening slip. It’s the epitome of effortless, understated chic. What more could you ask for?
