How much does fashion love colour? Let Autumn and Winter 2017 count the ways. From the rise of red to the rich colour palette of green and purple, the runways are filled with bold brights. Now is the time for embracing uplifting hues and celebrating individuality.

The movement towards optimism has had its effect on the jewellery world too, with young women increasingly choosing rainbow-bright pieces. Millennials in particular are looking for statement-making gems that challenge the traditional and add an edge. And that doesn't mean breaking the bank either.

Beanie Major, jewellery expert and founder of In Detail, says it's all about expressing yourself. "My clients come to me because they want to find something unique," she tells us. "They want jewellery that makes them stand out from the crowd and reflects their own personality and style while still being affordable. Coloured gemstones are a great way to do this."

So whether you add sparkle to your lobes every day or save one statement necklace for a glitzy event, we've selected seven pieces perfect for the luxe magpie in all of us…

1. The Pendant Necklace

Let your necklace work its magic by pairing it with everything from a classic white tee to a little black dress and everything in between.

2. The 'It' Ring

This is the season for sporting an array of chunky rings across both hands. Choose pavé set stones in a single colour to add texture and interest.

3. The Statement Earrings

Major earrings continue to be a huge trend so make them the main event. Forget modest studs — the bolder, the better. Invest in these, go minimal with the makeup and wear with attitude.

4. The Every Day Bracelet

A delicate, personal piece is the perfect way to elevate the every day. This bracelet has just the right amount of bling. Layer with other key pieces for a statement look on special occasions or wear it alone for a more subtle approach.

7. The Reworked Classic

You can't go wrong with a diamond and emerald ring and the wrap design on this one gives it a modern update. Small enough to stack and layer, easily stunning enough to hold its own — this might just be your perfect style chameleon.
