Coolest Jewellery Trends for 2023

Summer jewelry trends are always fun, but this year’s might be the most imaginative yet. While warmer weather brings above a surge of delicately stacked chains, charm necklaces and bracelets, and colorful rings, we don’t think we’ve ever seen as many cheeky and whimsical takes on jewelry. Fashion trends like the Y2K revival have given way to a host of playful, retro jewelry trends featuring bold, bright colors. Even traditionally minimalist trends like chain necklaces and lockets have received a summer update with a more-is-more mentality. Ahead, you’ll find 13 summer jewelry trends that, though they might be here for a good time, not a long time, will have you itching to accessorize.

A perfect encapsulation of how jewelry this summer is delivering cheeky whimsy, this trend looks good enough to eat. Candy-colored chains and bracelets, worn solo or receiving the stacking treatment, add an air of youthful fun, but we love the way they subvert a formal or high-fashion look.

Another carefree jewelry style, mismatched beaded necklaces and bracelets embrace imperfection with a clashing of cuteness. Pearls, crystal, and ceramic beads are mixed by color, shape, and size for an energetic, unique feel.

Rather than perfectly-shaped pearls, this summer’s pearl jewelry calls for organic and mismatched pearls. The focus on more natural, imperfect, and raw pearls might stem from the rise of Mermaidcore in all things fashion, including accessories.

With the return of Y2K accessories, body chains have made a major comeback. The key to wearing body chains this summer is to look for pieces that are less Dirrty-era Xtina and more “fine jewelry.” Ultra-fine chains in real gold with semi-precious stone beads are how the cool kids are wearing their body chains.

One of the few jewelry trends on our list that doesn’t owe itself to the inescapable Y2K revival, this summer’s choker necklaces pay homage to adornments going even further back in time. Ribbon choker necklaces decorated with silk flowers throw all the way back to the Victorian era, when women would wear them tightly around the throat.

Inspired by antique styles, Byzantine jewelry refers to a style of woven or braided necklaces and bracelets that is, at once, delicate, intricate, and often oversized. Often featuring crosses or sunbursts inlaid with stones and pearls, Byzantine jewelry is fit for a queen, literally.
