Spring always inspires me to refresh my wardrobe and that includes my jewelry. I tend to pick a few more expensive pieces of jewelry and wear them for months without taking them off. Due to my longstanding involvement in jewelry, I gravitate towards timeless pieces, but lately the spring jewelry trends for 2022 have caught my eye.
Suddenly I’m interested in swapping out my classic gold jewelry for subtle silver. Even better, I wear them both at the same time and I’m the girl who rocks mixed metals. For special occasions, I plan to experiment with floral textures and pops of color. Spring fashion trends are getting brighter and brighter, so it’s no surprise that jewelry is headed in the same direction.
From sparkling choker necklaces (yep, they’re back) inspired by Olivia Rodrigo’s Grammys look to Old Hollywood earrings, there are plenty of pieces to up your accessory game. Read on below to learn about the top spring jewelry trends for 2022, as well as some of our favorite must-shops.
All that glitters is silver? In case you missed it, silver is the new thing it Metal for everyday life. Silver jewelry has the same classic feel as gold but creates a more edgy, raised look. If the bulk of your basic jewelry is gold, consider mixing metals and layering on some silver rings, bracelets or necklaces to make your look more impactful.
This double layer ring from Mejuri is simple but eye-catching with the two bands. The bands are two different widths to create a contouring effect on your finger. It’s sure to catch the light above the dining table on an evening.
Bamboo Twisted Hoop Earring
If you already wear hoops every day, this twisted silver bamboo pair is an easy way to upgrade your signature look. Silver looks particularly good with a simple ribbed tank top or a classic black blazer.
Flowers are obvious in spring and so is your jewelry. Flower earrings, necklaces and rings are enjoying a resurgence and will add some much-needed flower power to all your spring looks. I love that this trend can be worn delicately in a ‘freshly picked’ way or can have more of a 70’s maximalist retro look.
Chiffon Petal Hoop Earrings
This pair of soft pink petal hoop earrings is so pretty. Team it with a silk slip and a low bun for a warm evening on the town.
Small crystal lily earrings
What could be nicer than being bought flowers? These crystal lily earrings are bought. These studs have a unique mint hue, adding a subtle pop of color to your look.
Moschino’s pastel SS22 runway featured models wearing chunky colored necklaces and pendants that looked more like baby toys than accessories. A good piece of gold or silver still has its place, but whenever you can lean into color this season, it’s a safe bet you won’t regret it.
Dulci’s cocktail ring
Swarovski has been killing the colorful cocktail ring game lately. This piece has been on my mind for months.
Tapa earrings in 18k gold vermeil
A splash of color can go a long way. This pair of safety pin earrings showcases spring’s hottest hue, pink of course.
Red carpet fashion from awards season never fails to inspire new jewelry purchases, and a popular look so far this year has been teardrop earrings. Drop earrings are a timeless and elegant way to add sparkle to your look. As the red carpet suggests, they are particularly good for special occasions. Take inspiration from Hollywood’s A-list and incorporate this look into your wedding guests’ attire this spring and summer.
Crystal linear drop earrings
At just $12, this pair of crystal earrings looks way more expensive than they actually are. This is a great way to get in on the trend if you’re not ready to invest in a more serious pair.
Cubic Zirconia Drop Earrings
Drop earrings can also be worn as everyday jewelry. This glittery pair will add bling to your look without being overly formal.
You know those thin gold chains that you layered? Time to take them off and trade them in for a key statement maker. Blingy, chunky chokers are all the rage, a major upgrade from the black velvet chokers we all thought chic in college. Think costume glam but styled for everyday shenanigans.
This season’s gold chains call for a little more flair. Go for a chunky chain choker with a statement pendant like this gemstone.
Choker with Crystal Flower Center
When dressing up for a chic night out, ditch the statement earrings and let your choker do the glamor. This scintillating Joomi Lim number is certainly not for the faint-hearted.
Names, initials, zodiac signs and lucky numbers are officially the cool new accessories of the hour. Think of Bella Hadid in her Dilara Findıkoğlu Anne Boleyn-inspired B choker. Go for a personalized piece with timeless charm (did your mom buy this for you?) or a super contemporary twist (TikTok made you buy it!).
Carrie font name necklace
If you want a classic, old-school name tag a la Carrie Bradshaw, I highly recommend snagging a custom piece for a bargain through Etsy.
Custom Pearl Princess Necklace
Oh, you’d rather get bold? Frasier Sterling has tons of Gen Z-approved letter and name pieces, like this eye-catching bead piece.
