The biggest jewelry trends for 2024 are bold, fun, colorful, and statement-making… meaning they fit right in with my existing style. I’ll never recommend abandoning your own unique taste in favor of following the masses — but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a few cues and switch things up now and again.
Here are the jewelry trends I’m seeing for the new year, plus how they’re showing up at Be.
What’s Old is New Again
I’ve been touting my love for vintage for awhile now, but it’s entering the scene in an even bigger way this year. From retro pendants to vintage cocktail rings, I’m all about layering old and new in elevated, intentional, and posh ways. This year, I’m drawing inspiration from the likes of Jackie O and her pearl-baring counterparts. Stay tuned for an influx of pieces we sourced at the Miami Antique Jewelry Show…
(By the way, this recent piece in Rapaport Magazine helps confirm my predictions… As we all venture back in time via our TV screens, our jewelry boxes want in on the fun too!)
And Speaking of Pearls…
There’s no need to choose between shine and iridescence. Diamond and pearls have always been a match made in heaven (okay, Paul Morelli), but 2024 is the year we embrace this classic stone in fresh and new ways. Pairing a classic with edgy counterparts? That’s so 2024.
Go Big or Go Home (and Don’t Go Home)
I’ve never been afraid of a statement piece, but as we look to the coming months, we’re seeing silhouettes that are even chunkier and bolder (a la the links and chains of the 80s). Big gold bracelets, colorful rings, and stacks on stacks of layers… and yes, this is just the beginning.
And a Little More Motif-ation
I’m a longtime fan of charms and baubles that subtly (or not-so-subtly) share my adoration for hobbies or other pieces of my personality. Charms had a major moment in 2023, and I’ll never stop wearing my heart-shaped everything. With that said, we’re taking familiar shapes to a new level in this new year… Picture this: belt-reminiscent bracelets, bowtie rings, and lots more to come.
And Finally… Remember that More is More
Other trend guides may encourage you to focus on one trend at a time or to begin embracing new styles slowly — but that’s not the EDW way. As I’ve said time and time again, layering is my bread and butter. Don’t be afraid to try all the above at once!
