The biggest jewelry trends of 2023 reflect a shift toward maximalism and self-expression. These trends are an evolution of last year’s dopamine dressing trend, which saw everyone turning to colorful and fun pieces to boost their mood.
This year, maximalism is still on the menu, but the top pieces of the year are decidedly more personalized. There’s a trend toward being more intentional when styling bold jewelry in order to create uniquely expressive looks.
Another overarching 2023 jewelry trend is a focus on designs that are both statement and staple pieces, like tennis bracelets and diamond hoops. This aligns with this year’s fashion trends, which are largely made up of effortless wardrobe staples that can be worn again and again.
Whether you want to wear the new year’s bold pieces to amp up elegant basics or to make a maximalist ensemble look even more eye-catching, there’s something for everyone in the year’s top jewelry trends. Here are our stylists’ picks for the top 11 jewelry trends of 2023.
Tennis bracelets and tennis necklaces are always in style, but they’re usually reserved for upscale occasions. This year, however, people are styling these fine jewelry classics in every imaginable way. One of the biggest trends of 2023 is wearing tennis necklaces and bracelets with everyday and casual looks.
When it comes to necklaces in 2023, the bolder the better and the more the merrier. Layering up on necklaces and rocking bolder styles is key. Two of the most popular necklace styles on runways this season were wide chokers and collar necklaces, as seen at Carolina Herrera and Proenza Schouler. Large pendants, spotted at Dior and Chloe, were also dominant on runways, as were all types of chunky chain necklaces.
Personalized jewelry, one of the biggest jewelry trends of 2022, is more fashionable than ever as we move into the new year. Personalized jewelry perfectly fits in with the overall trend toward self-expression and maximalism.
Our top picks in the personalized jewelry category include initial jewelry and charm jewelry, both of which are all over social media. For those who want peak personalization, consider creating a piece of custom jewelry that’s truly your own.
While yellow gold remains the top precious metal, silver-toned jewelry is surging in popularity. White gold, sterling silver, and platinum jewelry became more prevalent in 2022, and this trend is ramping up further this year as silver-toned pieces become more common on runways and influencers alike.
Heart-shaped jewelry is arguably the most fun jewelry trend of the year. Popping up on everything from oversized pendants to delicate studs, this trend is as easy to wear as it is playful.
Men’s and Unisex
Men’s and unisex jewelry is on the rise for 2023. It’s becoming more common for men to wear jewelry to express their style and individuality, and the range of design styles men are wearing has broadened. In the past, men’s and unisex jewelry designs were decidedly plain. But this year, we’re seeing a shift toward more ornate and unique men’s and gender-neutral jewelry.
Hoop earrings remain one of the most dominant jewelry trends this year, but the most popular styles have shifted. Classic diamond hoops are the most in demand hoop style in 2023. Oversized hoops, as seen at Gucci and Chanel, are also having a moment.
Cuffs and Bangles
Statement cuffs and bangle bracelets were huge on runways this year, popping up at Tory Burch, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, and Prada. Most designers let their bold bangles and chunky cuffs shine alone, but wearing a bangle on each wrist was another notabl styling choice.
Rings on Every Finger
Bold rings are back in a big way for 2023. Oversized cocktail rings made a splash on this year’s spring/summer runways. While cocktail rings are typically worn alone or with a few minimal accent rings, the current trend is to sport statement rings on every finger.
Long, linear drop earrings were one of the most noticeable trends on this season’s runways. We saw shoulder-skimming drop earrings at Proenza Schouler, Chanel, Nensi Dojaka, Louis Vuitton, Ulla Johnson, and Markarian–just to name a few.
Last but not least, we have punk-inspired jewelry details. Punk elements like chains, safety pins, paper clips, and studs are a major trend this season. Pop on a punk-inspired piece and add edge to your look in an instant.
