At APS we embrace slow fashion. Quick, disposable trends have no place in the fine jewellery business! That said, as temperatures decrease, certain accessories become the sartorial heroes of our winter wardrobe, and add some much needed glamour to our greyest months. APS provides a shortlist of tried and tested jewellery classics perfect for colder climes.
Classic and endlessly versatile, the glowing warm properties of yellow
-gold are perfect for lifting spirits (and looks) on dreary days. In typical Melbourne fashion, the majority of us will be playing it safe with a palette of black and navy when the temperatures drop, making the ideal monochromatic backdrop for a glamorous gold accessory.
To balance out the multiple layers and darker colour palette required to survive the winter season, our jewelry needs to be a little more substantial, moving away from lace thin chains and fine rings, to heavier, bolder designs capable of providing a punch, even when it is raining. In keeping with 2021's genderless design aesthetic, a chunky chain is a welcome addition, with enough bulk to stand out against your thick knit jumper, but glamorous enough to transition from the workplace to the bar. The chunky chain, worn either as a necklace or bracelet works well as a standalone piece, with the added benefit of not getting tangled as you inevitably remove your coat five times a day.
WIDE BAND RINGS
Multisex accessories are becoming increasingly common place within the fashion industry, with many designers choosing to show collections modelled by both men and women. After dominating the jewellery world for the last few years, highly feminine stacking rings are gradually being replaced by strong, masculine accessories suitable to be worn singularly whilst still making a sartorial impact. Wide gold bands, such as the APS signature Ruby ring, has the perfect combination of masculine design with a luxury edge. Studded with tiny ruby stars on a brushed gold surface, and inspired by our beloved rescue Dog Ruby, the Ruby ring was made to be a stand out piece.
