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.
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
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
Shop the look: Molly Petite 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
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 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
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
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
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
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
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!
