I've made no secret of my love for all things Scandi. I typically focus on clothing brands, but right now I want to highlight one of my favorite Danish jewelry labels: Elhanati. It was founded in 2011 by Orit Elhanati, who was born in Copenhagen and is of Greek, Israeli, and Danish descent. Her stunning jewelry pieces are like mini works of art, so I knew she'd be the perfect person to ask about 2024 trends

"For our clients, it's not just about the end product; it's about the journey," Elhanati told Who What Wear. "Our clients love to see where the magic happens, and how the pieces are made. With the launch of our first flagship store in Copenhagen that houses our workshop, this has become a special part of the process. We have clients flying in from New York, Paris, and all over the world for their engagement and wedding jewelry to get the full experience." Scroll down to read her thoughts on the 2024 jewelry trends Scandi girls will love. 

1. Black Gemstones

"Black gemstones, almost gothic in their expression, are a huge part of Elhanati," said Elhanati. "Our Black Orchid collection and our new collaboration with sculptor Conie Vallese embrace the Renaissance period in a modern setting. Both collections are designed to empower the woman and to look just as good both as an everyday piece but also as a big statement piece for that special occasion." 

2. Oversize Pieces

"Our signature style of working with gold is incredible when it's blown up on a large canvas. Combining these huge art deco earrings and necklace amulets with clean, minimalistic Scandinavian lines creates a very special red carpet statement look—I have some very cool pieces up my sleeve!" 

3. Symbols, Amulets, and Spirituality

"Each piece tells a unique story, featuring symbols and elements that resonate with the wearer. I can feel there is a craving for something spiritual, so next year we are embracing this part of our DNA and introducing a line of special pieces." 

4. Heirloom-Worthy Jewelry

"Our clients are on a quest for jewelry that goes beyond surface beauty, something with a deeper connection that is not just beautiful but profoundly meaningful. These heirlooms are designed to be passed down through generations, making the emotional connection between the jewelry and its owner all the more significant."

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
