Top Jewelry Trends for Summer 2023

Who can help but love summer? It’s one of the best seasons of the year with its long hours of daylight, perfect beach weather, and skin-baring temperatures. As you shop for your summer OOTDs, don’t forget the accessories!

The perfect bangle, earrings, or necklace can make any outfit look better. They can even be used to complement your golden summer glow. If you’re wondering what the hottest trends this year are, wonder no more.

Here are some of the can’t-miss trends this summer 2023.

1. Beachy Vibes

Summer is all about getting a healthy sun-kissed glow on your skin. To complement your new tan, you don’t have to limit yourself to gold-tinged pieces. You can let the beachy vibes take over and wear some gorgeous pieces inspired by coastal elements like turquoise blue waters.

You’ve got that right — we’re talking about seashells! Necklaces, bracelets, and anklets made from shells look absolutely stunning and they’re fairly easy to dress up or down depending on what you have planned for the day. They have a delightful boho, beach-babe charm, but if you’re looking for more formal, fancy jewelry, you can never go wrong with pearls!

2. Ocean-Inspired Motifs and Gemstones

If you’re a quirky gal who likes wearing fun motifs, you can experiment with some fun ocean-inspired themes in your jewelry. While pops of color and funky jewelry are generally trending right now, an ocean theme can be oh-so fun. Plus, it will help you stand out for all the right reasons.

In case you’re going for a subtler look and candy-colored motifs aren’t your vibe, you can still go for an understated ocean aesthetic. Think of Greece with its gorgeous Mediterranean blue roofs and sea-green waters! For example, an Emerald Waterfall Ring can be the perfect piece of oceanic jewelry to lend your outfit a touch of elegance.

3. Celestial Elements

Celestial elements like the sun, moon, and stars are all the rage in summer jewelry. Planets are a great option too. Summer is all about warm sunny days and clear night skies with bright stars. So, pieces centered around celestial motifs will look absolutely stunning and on-trend.

You can also go for a zodiac design to make things interesting. Just check out these summer-themed zodiac pieces. The fact that you can choose your personal zodiac sign makes each accessory special and gives it a customized touch!

4. Simple and Elegant Designs

For those who believe that less is more, simple and elegant designs will never go out of fashion. Easy to style and extremely versatile, these designs can be worn not just during summer but throughout the year. Talk about getting maximum mileage from your jewelry!

As if that weren’t enough, this type of jewelry is more travel-friendly than most since you can match it with all your favorite outfits and go from day to night without a change of clothes. It’s the definition of effortlessly beautiful. A great example of this is the Half Eternity Band Ring — sparkly yet simple.

Now, let’s get one thing straight — simple doesn’t mean boring. You can still incorporate embellished jewelry with intricate designs but just keep the overall look classy and a little bit restrained.

5. Maximalism

On the other end of the spectrum, we have maximalism. It’s a great way to make a statement in various ways. You can go big and bold with color, size, or design while letting your carefree spirit show.

For a more subtle take on maximalism, layer a few simpler pieces of jewelry. The Amelia layered necklace set exudes maximalism through layering. It brings together different-colored metals to really make a statement while maintaining a classy, stylish look. The juxtaposition of the varying chain lengths and metal colors creates a wonderful balance that is striking and delightful.

6. Cuffs for Ears and Hands/Arms

Summer typically means a lot of short sleeves or sleeveless clothing as you try to beat the heat and soak up the sun. This gives you ample opportunity to jazz up your hands with fun jewelry so it's no wonder that cuffs are such a trend this summer!

Wear a cuff instead of a bangle to let everyone know that you’re on top of the latest trends. You can also wear it on your upper arm to add an edgy touch to your outfit and elevate an area that otherwise tends to go ignored.

If you’re going to wear your hair up or swept up to one side, you can even add some extra pizazz to your ears with ear cuffs! This trend offers a lot of scope for experimentation and fun.

7. Other Trends To Watch Out For

Who says you have to stop at these six trends? There are loads of other styles that you’re bound to see this summer. Pick and choose your favorites as you go shopping:

  • Pinky Rings: Whether as small or larger statement pieces, pinky rings are all the rage right now.
  • Statement Y2k Earrings: Y2k has made a comeback so statement earrings from the early 2000s are definitely worth adding to your collection.
  • Punk Designs: Balance the softness of your favorite summer dresses with a touch of punk to let your edgy side show.
  • Vibrant Gemstones: If you love summer and vibrant colors, choose jewelry that features different-colored gemstones so you have sparkle and color at the same time.
  • Beaded Jewelry: There are so many beautiful beads out there. Whatever your preferences, you’re bound to find a design that will make you a fan of beaded jewelry.

Just remember that the most important accessory is your confidence. So, whatever makes you look and feel gorgeous is what you should be wearing this summer!
