The new year is here, and for many people, one of their resolutions is to look their best. While diet, exercise, and even cosmetic treatments are a huge part of feeling fantastic, what we wear is also essential. The cherry on top of any outfit is perfectly curated jewelry, so staying on trend this new year is important for many women. Whether you’re looking to add costume or fine jewelry to your collection, there are some pieces every woman wants to ensure she has in her jewelry box. Keep reading for the top jewelry trends for 2023 that are worth the splurge and investment.
Who doesn’t love to stand out from the crowd? Massive dangling earrings are in style in a major way. Whether you opt for rhinestones, pearls, or something more Bohemian with turquoise and sterling silver, earrings that graze your shoulders are not only statement-making but fashion-forward. If your style is more minimalist, you don’t even have to go big; opt for a simple chain with one stone on the stud instead. Danglers are one earring trend you want to take advantage of.
All the design houses are doing oversized cuffs right now, from Givenchy to Chanel, and these bold wrist pieces can be mixed up depending on your outfit. You can traditionally wear an oversized cuff on the wrist or have fun with it by wearing it halfway up your forearm. You could even get away with moving it up to your bicep if you’re very petite. Cuffs are a fun addition to even the simplest outfits and can make a big statement, making them worth the investment.
Speaking of oversized, when it comes to pearls this year, go-big-or-go-home. Pearls have been at the forefront of the jewelry seen for some time, but they’ve never been as gigantic as they are right now. From bracelets, earrings, rings, and everything else, jumbo pearls are the look. The symbology of pearls is knowledge and wisdom gained, and who doesn’t want to take that into the new year with them?
Solid Gold Earrings
While costume jewelry serves its purpose and is great for many reasons, like special events or vacations where you don’t want to stress losing a piece, nothing stands the test of time or is iconic as fine gold jewelry. Solid gold earrings have been a mainstay in women’s jewelry for centuries and aren’t going anywhere. Except for this year, you can go beyond the traditional hoop or gold stud. Have fun with diamond pave huggie hoops, bright precious gemstones laid in gold, or even whimsical designs like butterflies and stars. You can never go wrong with solid gold earrings, which are guaranteed to last a lifetime.
If there’s one stone having a moment in 2023, it’s the emerald. Colored stones have been gaining more and more momentum over the last few years in the fashion world, but this year the color is green, and it will leave others with envy. If you’re looking for a new pair of studs or even a tennis bracelet, instead of going with a classic diamond this year, opt for emeralds instead.
Cocktail rings were all the rage from the 1950s through the 70s, but they’ve been roaring back into style with the best of them. Costume jewelry is fun because even though some of it can become pricey, for the most part, it’s affordable, but it can make a massive statement at little cost. Gold is generally the way to go with bright stimulants of precious gemstones. Rubies, emeralds, and sapphires make great stone inlays for oversized costume rings. Don’t walk out the door the next time you have an event without adding a beautiful cocktail ring.
Jewelry is essential to tie together an outfit, looking put together and perfectly groomed, which is the goal of every sartorially minded woman. By making sure you add the jewelry mentioned above trends for 2023 to your collection, you’re guaranteed to look and feel good throughout the entire New Year. Enjoy playing with trends that speak to you and work with your existing aesthetic. Happy New Year!
