The last couple years of loungewear uniforms and minimalist accessories have inspired everyone lately to go bold with their wardrobe — and that includes jewelry. While dainty chains and layered strands have been among the most enduring jewelry trends, bold bijoux are back in 2022.
Continuing the trends seen on fall 2021 runways and red carpets (including the Met Gala and Grammys), chunky accoutrements and retro jewelry punctuated the spring/summer 2022 shows. See: supersized cocktail rings at Dior and Givenchy; door-knocker earrings at Etro, Versace and Carolina Herrera; and maximalist chains on necks, earlobes and waists at Balmain, Givenchy, Tom Ford and more.
From logomania pieces to statement-makers that nod to silhouettes of decades past (from the 1920s to Y2K), check out some of the best jewelry trends for 2022.
Jewelry Trend: Chunky Gold Chains
Larger-than-life links are among the top 2022 jewelry trends, as seen on the runways at Valentino and Hermès, to name a few. This season, go with oversized gold chains that make a bold statement solo or when layered with other over-the-top pieces.

Short & Suite Light Purple Ring
Add a cocktail ring or two (or five) to your fashionable fingers, like Short & Suite’s oval bezel gemstone ring that comes in other sweet shades — including Pantone’s hue of the year, periwinkle.
