Take one glance at the fall/winter 2022 runways, and one thing is abundantly clear - this winter, it's all about the Jewelry. Making more noise than the clothes themselves, the sparkly accessories put a modern spin on some of the most classic designs. For us laymen, that translates into affordable, accessible, and timeless - three words that will have us happily reaching for our wallets. As explained by the founder of SHAY Jewelry, "It's definitely going to be a big, bold winter, but in fine jewelry, classic and refined never go out of style." From pearls to hoops, here are the top trends of the moment. (And feel free to mix and match styles! It's all about what works for you!)

Pearls might not immediately scream modern-day design, reminding us more of our grandma's Jewelry collection, but they're back and bigger than ever. Fitting in perfectly with the currently popular 'old money' aesthetic, they are classy and elegant and give a nod to past trends. This time around, however, they're being stacked up - Pearls on pearls on pearls. Taking over rings, earrings, and bracelets, we're taking the pearl to all places jewelry can be found. "Pearls took their time to make a comeback... I don't see them going anywhere, and I'm here for it!" noted Ten Wilde founder.

Flowers have also made a surprise appearance on the winter fashion runways, having their moment on the ears and necks of the hottest models. Designers such as Loewe, Roberto Cavalli, and Ulla Johnson all incorporated the pattern into their jewelry looks, fighting against the notion that they are restricted to the warmer months. The metal floral designs are pretty and fun all year round!

On that note, we're going big on the color too! Inevitably taking cues from the current neon clothing trend, the winter runway was filled with bright, bold jewelry pieces. While the colder temperatures may have us reaching for our darker, gloomier colors, this year, we're being told to fight against that instinct and opt for fun colors instead. For a cheaper, more accessible way in, opt for rainbow-colored gem bracelets or brightly-colored chunky earrings. Birthstones, on the other hand, are pricier but are guaranteed to stay in style forever. Keep your collection safe with these jewelry boxes and ensure they're ready to go again next year!
