The LE Staff's Top Jewelry Picks for 2022

New year, new jewelry! We asked the Local Eclectic team which new piece of jewelry is their must have for 2022, and although it's almost impossible for a jewelry-obsessed team like ours to narrow it down to only one favorite, we managed to bring you top picks from the certified jewelry experts themselves.

Solid Gold Mixed Metal Braided Necklace

Shop the look: Solid Gold Mixed Metal Braided Necklace

This is a splurge piece I've had my eye on for a while, and 2022 is the year I make it mine! So many members of the team own this mixed metal necklace and the shimmer and shine it gives off is unmatched- even on video calls!

- Sam, Content Creation Partnerships + Growth Manager

Solid Gold Twisted Huggie Hoops
Shop the look: Solid Gold Twisted Huggie Hoops

I've wanted a pair of huggie hoops for the past 6 months and I finally landed on these babies! They are subtle enough to wear everyday but I love how the twisted design gives it a little something extra. Plus I can wear them solo or as a stacking look with earrings I already own.

- Taryn, Product Development Manager

Molly Petite Pearl Hoop Earrings

You can take the girl out of New England, but she still needs her pearls once in a while... These are a fun twist on the traditional pearl earrings, and they're small and lightweight enough for the everyday.

- Janet, COO

Nairobi Green Hoop Earrings
Shop the look: Nairobi Earrings

Hoop earrings are a mainstay in my wardrobe, but usually I go for a smaller huggie hoop. For 2022, I'm eyeing the Nairobi Hoop Earrings. I think a statement earring can elevate any outfit and I'm loving the pop of color!

- Sarah, Art Director + Branding Lead

Solid Gold Crystal Pendant Necklace for Manifestation in Goldstone
Shop the look: Solid Gold Crystal Pendant Necklace for Manifestation in Goldstone

Solid Gold Necklaces are a must for me, being able to leave them on through showers and workouts, and I plan to keep my Solid Gold Crystal Pendant Necklace for Manifestation on everyday. I chose goldstone for the color, yes, but also the meanings of Confidence, Ambition & Inspiration. I'm working hard this year on growing confidence and the daily reminder in a beautiful sparkly little package will go a long way!

- Steffi, Sr. Manager of Operations + Business Analytics

Solid Gold Cherub Charm Necklace
Shop the look: Solid Gold Cherub Charm

I'm currently creating my own stacked necklace with the theme of Faith. I love to curate my jewelry collection with intentional pieces that I know I'll love throughout my life. This cute little golden angel is going to go perfectly with the Free Spirit Coin Pendant Necklace's beautiful dove as a reminder to always embody grace, peace, and love in the midst of all of the happenings of life because there's something much larger at play in all of this.

- Bella, Senior Customer Experience Muse

Lover's Tempo Solitaire Necklace

Shop the look: Solitaire Necklace

I just started at Local Eclectic and this is the first piece I have purchased! I love the simple and delicate design and I think it will be an everyday piece. On top of that, the Solitaire Necklace can be layered with the eventual additions to my jewelry collection!

- Kailey, Marketing Coordinator

Gold Sun and Heart Drop Earrings

Shop the look: Sun Earrings

I’m obsessed with anything Luiny makes, since it’s all so unique and fun - I’ve had my eye on the Sun Earrings for a minute, and I think they’re gonna be my go to for this year. My sister and I have a matching tattoo of the sun and the moon (I’m the sun, she’s the moon) - and I want to wear these to remind me that I carry her love with me even when we’re apart.

- Katharine, Lead Photographer & Videographer


Smokey Quartz & Black Diamond Baguette Crush Ring

Shop the look: Smokey Quartz & Black Diamond Baguette Crush Ring

After gifting a few pieces from Local Eclectic, I finally decided to treat myself to a piece of jewelry! Now I'm excited to continue to add some flare to my wardrobe, which is why chose the Smokey Quartz & Black Diamond Baguette Crush Ring as my pick this year! I love the edgy appeal of black diamonds and the minimalistic style of this piece specifically. Cue Sam Sparro's "Black and Gold" because I'm jazzed for this piece from La Kaiser!

- Joseph, Customer Experience + Operations Muse

4mm Mini Opal Hoop Earrings in White Gold
Shop the look: 4mm Mini Opal Hoop Earrings in White Gold

I have been wanting these earrings for quite some time now, and I think 2022 is the year I'm finally buying them! I love that these hoops are just slightly thicker than most of our other huggies. The white gold is not something I'd usually go for, but I love the way it looks with the opal. Plus I can start rocking a cool new mixed metal look for my earring stack! I'm all for trying new styles this year!

- Beth, Sr. Operations Specialist
