The Top Jewelry Trends of 2021

These are the pieces you’re about to see everywhere. We’ve rounded up the top jewelry trends for 2021, and trust us when we say there’s something for everybody. From classic chains to bold and colorful gems, this year’s top jewelry looks are all about playing around with minimalism and maximalism and striking your own unique balance.

Modern Pearls

Spoiler alert: pearls aren’t going anywhere in 2021.  This timeless gem is still enjoying its style resurgence, and we’re obsessed with how designers are making a classic material feel so modern. 
 

Colored Stones

Step away from the neutrals.  It’s time to go bright and bold with your choice in gemstones.  Colored stones like mystic topaz and alexandrite are what everyone is currently coveting, and we’re loving them in simple silhouettes that make the color stand out as the star of the show.
 

Bold Chains

Simple but never boring, chains in all shapes and sizes are this season’s staple piece.  Wear them alone for a look that’s minimalistic and ultra refined, or pile them on in different lengths and widths to maximize the visual interest.
 

Layered Bracelets

We’re no strangers to a good jewelry stack, and it’s about time bracelets were given the spotlight in this jewelry trend.  The key is to mix different colors and styles for an eclectic feel, and we’re especially loving bracelets over sleeves for a fresh and winter friendly look.
 

Playful Styles

Bright colors and chunky beads, i.e. the kind of jewelry you’d wear to the roller rink.  Playful styles with a nostalgic and kitschy vibe have been all over our IG feeds, and we’re all in on this trend that’s bringing a sense of fun and carefree energy to our everyday jewelry style.

Super Bling 

How much sparkle is too much sparkle?  The 2021 answer: no such thing.  Statement styles with megawatt bling aren’t just for New Years Eve anymore, and we’re seeing extra large CZs everywhere these days.  We’re loving these styles paired with minimalist clothing to strike the perfect balance between less and more.
 

Vintage 

The past is present.  Whether it’s from another era or just looks the part, vintage and vintage inspired jewelry is having a moment.  We’re currently crushing on styles that look like they’ve been passed down for generations, giving any look a touch of old world glamour.
