Let's face it; the world would be a boring place without jewelry. For as long as humans have been around, jewelry has dominated the scene of every major civilization in existence. Society has changed a lot over the millennia, but our admiration for precious stones, ornate designs, and illustrious metals only seem to grow stronger.
In 2022, designers are building on old traditions while incorporating contemporary and avant-garde influences. This results in a dazzling display of jewelry options for the new year. Without further ado, let's dive into some of the fashion jewelry trends to keep watch for in 2022.
Art has always found inspiration in nature. Our earliest forms of jewelry were crafted from bones, seashells, and feathers. Nature has a natural symmetry that lends itself beautifully to the art of jewelry. It's no wonder that so many designers are incorporating bits of wilderness into their creations.
Take, for example, this Frederick Sage Natural Shell necklace. It features 14k yellow gold rendered into a dragonfly motif with a row of diamonds extending from wing to wing.
Thick chains are gaining a lot of attention this year, thanks partly to celebrities like Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, and Kim Kardashian sporting this bold design. A thick chain makes a statement that is hard to ignore. Not many pieces can naturally exude such raw elegance and confidence as a dazzling chain.
Thanks to the runway displays of major fashion houses like Gucci and Bottega Venetta, thick chains are now considered a wardrobe staple.
ThisSimon G. Classic Romance bracelet in 14k white gold features a hooked clasp for an elegant fit. The refined design of this curb chain bracelet emphasizes the luster of the interlocking metals. It makes a powerful statement for the superiority of simplicity in modern designs.
Hoop earrings never seem to go out of fashion. What often changes is the preference in size or settings. This year, bigger is better. Tiffany Hadish made that clear with her dashing appearance at the Golden Globes. Big names like Dior, Garnier, and Chanel have followed suit, creating custom hoop designs that hark back to their traditional origins while forwarding contemporary aesthetics.
These bold Charles Garnier Paolo earrings feature 18k rose gold plated silver and rhodium plating for enhanced durability.
Tickled Pink, Blue, Green, White, Red
Gemstones come in many colors, which designers are now using to fuel the latest trend in vibrant jewelry. While it is hard to deny the classic clarity of a diamond, augmenting pieces with emeralds, rubies, and sapphires only elevate a wearer's brilliance.
This Uneek Gemstone necklace displays an outpouring of vibrance. Crowned with a bezel emerald center stone and coated in diamonds, this necklace is the epitome of modern refinement.
