It’s the powerhouse. Whether it’s a statement gold design, like Louis Vuitton’s new LV Volt Mesh Necklace, or a snuggly torque, the choker will elevate any look. It was one of the standout pieces at the Paris shows in January, says Rembert. “We just saw several jewelers, including De Beers, Boucheron and Mikimoto, all unveiling some pretty spectacular collar necklaces that will no doubt make their way onto the red carpet this awards season.” At the couture shows, he says, designers showed how Giambattista Valli, Fendi and Elie Saab all sported plunging and strapless necklines that were on trend and “leaved just the right spot for a killer collar necklace.”

Big earrings are always in style – but they have even more chutzpah this year. Think Silvia Furmanovich’s Egyptian-inspired designs or a chunky David Webb gold style, says Laura Freedman, owner of Broken English, a jewelry store with locations in Los Angeles and New York. As a nod to the ’70s and ’80s, she’s also bringing back the giant Italian gold hoop. “Every jewelry designer creates their version of the oversized earring. It looks chic with anything.”

There’s no shortage of luxurious gold chains – from versatile long necklaces that can be wrapped twice for maximum impact, to chunky bracelets and drop earrings. “It’s a nostalgic vibe and ties into the ‘dopamine’ clothing trend that everyone keeps referring to,” says Rembert. It reminds him of the flair of the early 90’s and he singles out Jennifer Fisher, Tiffany & Co. and Sophie Buhai as some of the best styles. Larger and chunkier, this ’90s-inspired link looks even more glamorous when set with diamonds.

“Chains are dynamic because you can combine lockets, charms, family heirlooms into one necklace and make it your own,” says Teichman, who points to Marla Aaron’s stylized locks and Foundrae’s symbolic lockets as the best “add-ons.”

Vibrant, juicy colors add a touch of high energy to jewelry. From vibrant enamels to delicious gems, big color is everywhere. Teichman says she’s “obsessed” with Irene Neuwirth’s tropical carved flower pendants and Retrouvai’s thick gemstone lollipop rings. Freedman favors Darkai, a new Italian collection with gold and rhodium-plated, electric blue and red links that she brings for spring.

The modern Riviere is chic, versatile and everyone’s new favourite. Sarah Jessica Parker — one of the big jewelry influencers — has layered them multiple times in almost every episode And just like that. Hailey Bieber posted countless Instagram selfies in tank tops layered with diamond rivieres. New styles feature diamonds and colored gemstones in a variety of shapes, styles and price points. “The Riviere is like a second skin,” says Freedman. “You can wear it day or night, sleep in it, and it can be paired with longer necklaces and worn with pretty much anything.” Enough said.
