We spoke with three industry insiders to find out.

Jewelry trends ebb and flow just like fashion trends. One season it’s all about statement chunky necklaces and the next everyone is layering thin pendant necklaces. So, what’s in store for this Spring 2023 season?

We spoke with three industry insiders to find out.

Chains are still in.

“The jewelry trends for spring 2023 spotlight a revival of the classics and a refreshed elegance that usher us into this season,” says Kim Kanary, senior vice president of marketing and brand management of Jedora. “Chains maintain their spot at the forefront of fashion and spring will bring the incorporation of unique and bold elements such as mixing of chain types, adding pearls, and layering chunky and versatile styles.”

Pay attention to earrings and nature inspo.

As for earrings Kanary predicts that they will go to great lengths as the focal point of this season’s ensembles, with long, slender styles and chandelier designs becoming increasingly popular. On a more macro level, floral and nature-inspired jewelry evoke the changing of the season and she says that we will also see jewelry inspired by the world around you with modern architectural and sculptural silhouettes.

Color is key.

“Color is always a fun way to stay on trend and spring will feature highly saturated hues that make a statement. Select analogous color combinations, such as blue and green or pink and red, or highlight one color’s various tonalities to add depth and contrast to any style,” says Kanary.

Jewelry that mirrors personality is still trending.

“Jewelry will continue to be the most personal expression of style and values—people will look for jewelry that reflects who they are,” says Sophia Macris, creative director of fine jewelry at Verragio. “We’ll see this personal connection with talismans, colors, and stories that resonate deeply and mirror personality.”

Pretty in pink is a standout.

“Rose gold, delicate details and pearl accents will speak to a new generation in jewelry made for daily wear,” says Macris.

Bling is back.

Now that we’re going out again, diamonds make every day a reason to celebrate. “Wearable diamond jewelry, especially inside-outside hoops, will be a wardrobe essential,” says Macris. “It’s important to find the right pair that feels comfortable and flatters your face, because the light refracting through the diamonds makes your skin look luminous.”

Colored gemstone jewelry is key.

Colored gems may have been concealed by the white diamond in the past, but the last year has seen a major resurgence of colored gemstone jewelry, according to Aditi Daga, co-founder of Angara. “This season too will be all about pops of color and sparkling brilliance. Think citrine, aquamarine, tanzanite and pink tourmaline. Whether Princess Diana’s sapphire and diamond ring in the 80s or Megan Fox’s emerald and diamond toi et moi ring last year, colored gemstone engagement rings have been a celebrity favorite for years.”

Script necklaces are a “must.”

In line with the personalized jewelry trend that will continue to grow this season, Daga notes that initial pendants and bracelets as well as script necklaces will remain popular this year, but you can expect them to be feature an individual’s birthstone or special engraving for that extra personal touch.”
