Top Jewellery Trends 2022 That You Need to Know

Just as it is important to stay up to date on fashion trends, it is also important to learn the jewellery trends for 2022.

Jewellery is a powerful way to complement your outfits, make a statement and express yourself. A simple piece of jewellery can change the entire outfit, for example, you can take a simple black dress from a smart and elegant workday ensemble to a night out on the town just by wearing different jewellery. You can also take a plain and simple outfit and with jewellery change your look, minimising the need to buy new clothes. Jewellery can help you enhance an outfit, accentuate your personality, and even be used to start great conversations.

While jewellery is a powerful way to style your outfits, it can also be the key to creating a disastrous look if the wrong pieces are chosen. That’s why it is important to stay up to date with the latest trends that can put you at the forefront of the fashion industry and ensure you are always stylish.

If you’re not sure what the future holds, here are some of the top jewellery trends in 2022 and beyond you should know about.

1. Body jewellery

From body chains to body piercings, 2022 has a new line of jewellery taking the world by storm. Piercings have been popular for decades, and only seem to be gaining more interest in 2022. They are an interesting addition to your personal style especially if you are not a traditionalist, as they are versatile, offering opportunities for different looks just by changing the jewellery. From tragus piercings to belly bars, they are an intriguing way to extend your style beyond your clothes. Piercings aren’t the only body jewellery gaining popularity. Since the Kardashians wore body chains in 2021, sales for them have spiked. Body chains look great at the beach in a bikini, or with a crop top and jeans for a casual day out. Body chains can be simple and elegant, or sparkly and dramatic.

2. Cuffs

Cuffs have been worn on women's arms for centuries, and symbolise power and confidence. They originated from the Viking era, where arm rings were utilised amongst warriors and leaders to swear loyalty to each other. They are still worn in certain cultures today and seen on the modern-day runway as fashion statements. Cuffs have become a popular style of jewellery. Not only can you find cuffs for your arms, but you can also find a clip-on cuff for your ears and lips.

3. Charm bracelets

Popular in the ’70s, charm bracelets are making a comeback. This is no surprise, as the top designers around the world have started to integrate ’70s items into the last few seasons on the runway. Charm bracelets that give off a vintage vibe are being seen all over the place, with gold plated charms combined with pearls. These are excellent fashion pieces as they are big and chunky, making a statement with any outfit you wear. They can also be customised to suit your personal taste, with different colours, patterns and charms. Fortunately, you can find plenty of second-hand charm bracelets from the 70’s all over thrift stores and online shops.

4. Gold chains

Another blast from the past is gold chains. These are luxury gold chains that can be used in a variety of different ways to dress an outfit up, or even down. Choose a simple gold chain for a day in the office, or opt for a chunky chain or personalise it with lockets and charms to get heads in the street turning. While they are usually a piece of jewellery that symbolises wealth and prestige, they are now being used to enhance outfits and as a form of self-expression. No one is going to know if you use gold plated chains too!

Learning about the top trends of 2022 is a great place to start with creating your next look. Take the hottest pieces of jewellery and the latest jewellery trends and personalise with your own style and preferences.   Experiment with different pieces to see what you like and don’t like.
