We’ve had Millennial pink and Bottegha green, but now it’s orange that’s fast becoming the colour of the moment — especially when it comes to jewellery.
A fresh dose of Vitamin C and joyous optimism, this sunset shade is strong and statement with a summertime feel. Anytime we can dress like our favourite drink (hello, aperol spritz) we’re happy.
Orange is the professional mood-booster and a powerful tool for dopamine dressing. That might be one reason Pinterest has named it as a top wedding trend for 2023. “Hues of terracotta, copper and burnt sienna will be frequent guests at weddings this year,” they say. “Based on rising searches from Millennials and Gen X, you’ll see this smouldering colour everywhere in 2023, from floral arrangements to bridesmaid dresses.”
While we love citrus brights for a vibrant summer, it’s also the versatility of its tones that make it a trans-seasonal go-to — with darker shades for autumnal dressing.
How to Style Orange Your Way
We asked our Producer and Stylist, Amie, for her tips when it comes to an Aperol-inspired palette. “Gold jewellery with orange or amber stones is a really easy way to bring in a little bit of summer zest to any outfit,” she says. “I particularly love styling our new Molten Gemstone Double Stacking Ring Set on those rare sunny days in London to give my ring stack a real summertime feeling."

What Should I Style Orange With?
Don't be fooled, you don’t have to stick to wearing orange as a monochromatic colour. Pair its warm undertones with any other popping shades across your jewellery and clothes.
“I’ve always been obsessed with clashing colours,” Amie says. “I love styling orange jewellery with hot pinks and cobalt blues. Or why not go full on citrus and style orange jewellery with lemon yellows or lime greens!”

Juice Up Your Ear Stack
“Despite being a stylist for a jewellery brand, on the everyday, I like to style my jewellery quite simply,” our stylist Amie says. “I would bring in orange to my look with something like our Hot Rox Gemstone Mini Hoop Earrings and stack with a more plain simple hoop from our Hoop Air collection.”
What's Amie's advice for layering up in sunrise tones? "Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, everyone can work orange into their summer looks with a bit of jewellery. Try layering our Molten Gemstone Doughnut Pendant Necklace with your usual everyday necklaces to add a little pop of colour.”
We love the look of teaming orange beaded gemstone bracelets with chunky gold chains, especially in the summertime. Talk about a tangerine dream.
