Whether you love the sparkle of a diamond or just the sheen of sterling silver, jewelry is a girl’s one true love, and you cannot have enough of these in your wardrobe. 2022 has seen an array of influences guiding the accessory queens. From Y2K likes of Bella Hadid to more sophisticated pieces from the comfy core. However fleeting or lasting, these trends do leave an impression and a charming one at that! Whether it is the metal tones that inspired you or just how the chain is linked, here are the top 5 jewelry trends of 2022 and how you can style and flaunt them in different ways:
The Linked Chain Phenomenon
Chains are not slowing down—and neither is the gold craze. They will forever be statement-making. If bright yellow gold is your aesthetic, then go for this super-hack of stacking Linked Chains. A fabulous combination to try would be the smaller hollow links with an elongated drop of a circular pendant (looks way more stylish than it sounds) and stacking another Ball Link and Hollow Paperclip Link Chain Necklace. The variation in size of the links adds drama and accentuates your collarbones. Remember those square-neck blouses? Here’s what would complement them the best.
Looking for a fuss-free neckline but still want to be a linked chain poser? Wear these 14K White Gold Link Hollow Chain Drop Earrings. Perfect to style with a hair bun or even show from between your tresses, as diamonds adorn the first loop, this piece can morph from a day to night look for any occasion.
Textured Gold Maximalism
Having playful pieces is an absolute must this season. After all, we are still trying to compensate for time lost during covid. And nothing speaks more volume than texture! Diamond-cut textures and statement jewelry in various hues of gold are one of the year’s major trends, and celebrities and street style icons have been quick to embrace them. Here is your chance if you want part of that Iris Apfel vibe but in gold. Choose the 15mm Diamond Huggie and let it take center stage because the beauty of this trend is that there is no right or wrong way to style it. Denim, Silks, Linen? You’re ready to go!
But, just when you think you’ve had enough of the Huggies, there’s always a little more. Go the extra mile and get a bypass ring. Your fingers will appreciate you, especially when your significant other takes a gasp, precisely when he is about to hold your hand—already blushing? So is this 14K Yellow Gold pair of textured Huggies and bypass ring.
The Power of Double
“You’re like my twin” We’ve all said this to someone in our lives at least once. There is an unlimited thrill in finding something so relatable and making it a part of you instantaneously. But what if your earrings shared the same love and bond? Of course, they come in identical pairs, but the stir that these trending twins can cause will last a lifetime. Love a layered look but only have one piercing? Fear not as these ingenious twin Huggies earrings combines two looks into one. The somewhat bigger hoop is held in place by a typical post and hinged back, while the smaller secondary hoop is open at the top like a cuff. Safe and snug while also making you feel stylish.
Don’t want to go for single-tone jewelry? These Bujukan Diamond Circle Huggies will be your conversation starters and will hold their own character. From girl-next-door to the party’s sensation, you can style and flaunt them in any way you like! Mix them up, front and center, as you get the best of both worlds – White and Yellow Gold.
The Lucky Charms
We’ve all had an intimate and emotional spot for the jewelry we purchase, but lately, it’s become more expressive, which we adore! From celestial charms to birthstones and initials gracing our bodies, if you’re looking for a symbol to hold onto during uncertain times, this Bujukan necklace with an iconic evil eye design is thought to be one such guarding force. The ancient symbol is set in a circular medallion of brushed 14K yellow gold and bordered by 0.10cts of scintillating diamonds. A frame of golden spheres rings the pendant, and guess what? It is strung from an adjustable gold cable chain, allowing you to tailor it to any outfit and time of day!
Dog tags have lately gained popularity among women as a sign to commemorate loved ones in service or to show gratitude to the incredible force that keeps us safe. A great way to honor and style, this sparkling dog tag necklace hangs on a 32″ chain of elongated oval links, with the dog tag itself framed with polished 14K yellow gold Bujukan beads and studded with 1.51cts of diamonds. This casual meets classic item will be a flexible addition to your jewelry collection and can be worn with practically every outfit!
The Allure of Stacking
As they symbolize health, union, and growth, there is no doubt that beads should be “must-haves” in any wardrobe. Golden beads, especially in an unending stack of magnificence in the form of bracelets and bands, add that extra layer of depth and mystery. Like a new nomad preserving memories as they create a cluster of experiences. Explore this range of hand adornments which are an effortless shortcut to any enviable stack:
