I can’t believe I’m already doing a jewellery trends 2022 article. This is insane. We are nearing the end of 2021, and I wanted to show you guys what will be trending for jewellery in 2022.
So in 2022, we’re going to be seeing a lot of excesses, so the first trend on that note is stacking rings. You will see a lot of stacked rings, mixed metals in gold and silver, with stones, without, it’s going to be a lot of everything. A few of the standout styles that we’re going to be seeing are heirloom rings, signet rings, and thick bands.
Also, just a little side note which is not part of this trend report, but what I’ve seen a lot of right now is stacking bracelets. That’s kind of a popular trend to stack bracelets all together.
I did not think that I would be saying this for 2022 because I feel like pearls have had their time to shine all of last year, even a little bit the year before, but we’re still going strong with pearls. I think it has to do with the 80s influence we have right now in fashion and jewellery; pearls were really big in the 80s and continue to be significant for next year.
Going forward, these trends go through their iterations, and we right now are seeing a lot more of the organic deconstructed type pearls.
So next up, I know I just mentioned 80s jewellery and 80s jewellery trends are coming back hot we are going to be seeing a lot of big, bold pieces, and I know I mentioned it with lots of stacking rings. Still, it’s going to apply to necklaces and earrings, and just everything you can imagine is going to be back and bigger than ever. We’re going to be looking at pieces that are kind of geometric looking, lots of circular shapes bobble type pieces, colour, golds. It’s all back and better than ever.
The next trend that we will see next year that I haven’t seen in a very long time is arm cuffs. The arm cuffs we’re going to be seeing are a mix of different styles. I would say they’re on the daintier side what we’re seeing coming out right now, but I’m sure there’s going to be thick arm cuffs, thinner ones. It just depends on what your personal style is. I think they’re going to be great for summer because you can really see more of it like if you have a cuff on your arm and you’re going out in the winter, it’s going to be a little bit tough, but I think those will probably be coming in hot for spring of 2022.
So stay tuned for arm cuffs, and speaking of summer jewellery trends, I know we’re not even there yet for thinking about the summer of 2022, but body chains are going to be a thing. I know we had seen a little bit of it coming out this year in the summer we saw some celebrities rocking some body chains and sporting their favourite pieces, but we will see more of that in 2022.
Another jewellery trend that we saw a lot of in 2021 that will continue into the next year is chain link. Again, you’ve seen it everywhere, and I know you’ve seen it in silver and gold.
I have a few pieces; I love chain link. It is going to be still on trend for next year, so I think the most significant difference that we’re going to be seeing in the chain-link trend from 2021 going into 2022 is that thick chain-link is really what’s going to remain trendy. It’s going to be like those thicker chains that we see on the runway and off that will stay in style. I mean, obviously, we’ll still have thin chains that’ll be nice for people who prefer that style like myself I usually do, but the thick chains are really what’s like in right now and what’s going to continue into the next year.
Statement earrings are continuing to be a trend next year; we’re going to see colour, we’re going to see big hoops, we’re going to see them in silver and gold. Statement earrings with almost no other jewellery are a massive trend because they make such a statement.
The silver trends of 2022 are going to be structural in style. There’s going to be a lot of that tube shape to them, and they’re going to be very organic looking. So that’s what you can expect to see for silver jewellery and even gold jewellery going into next year.
Another trend that you’re going to want to watch out for are chokers; jewel chokers. Kind of like that diamonds look, something that I remember seeing like on Paris Hilton circa 2002. They’re going to be back in whether you’re rocking a genuine diamond choker or just a costume one. As long as you have that sparkle and bling factor on your neck, you will be on trend for next year.
The last trend that I’m going to mention today, which brings me no pleasure because I’m not too fond of this trend myself, but I have to report on this, is plastic, so colourful plastic will be in for 2022.
You’re going to be seeing it on bangles, on necklaces; however, I don’t think it’s a lasting trend. Maybe I could even call it a micro-trend. I think it might come and go; it’s probably not something you want to invest too much money in, so if you want to just maybe buy a little piece here and there or even make your own.
I hope you enjoyed this; that you learned about some new trends that are going to come out. I really think it’s essential also to use what you have in your wardrobe. For example, I have an arm cuff that I kept from literally like seven years ago, and I’m going to bring it out again because arm cuffs are in.
I know I’m a little bit of a hoarder, so don’t listen to me in terms of keeping your things, but I think it is essential to be mindful of trying to reuse things that you already have in your wardrobe, in your jewellery dresser drawer wherever you keep your jewellery.
I think that’s a significant part of this because there are so many different trends to choose from, so you can always mix and match whatever you have existing and then maybe buy a few things here and there, but we want to make sure that our consumption is conscious. So we want to make purposeful purchases without really killing the environment.
I think it’s just something to note you want to make sure that you curate a carefully selected fashion closet both with your clothing and your jewellery. So that you participate in trends while keeping your style authentic to who you are and having staple pieces that you go to while also mixing in new trends.
