If you’re wondering what trends will continue in 2022, what to invest in for yourself after you’ve bought your Christmas gifts, here’s a rundown of the trends I’ve featured here in 2021 and some that stretch back into 2020 will evolve through 2022.

Tales of Talisman

Designers are constantly adding new charms and lockets with meaning to their jewelry arsenal. Jewelry representing everything from spiritual to sentimental to pieces associated with leadership, strength, happiness, love and project continues to take shape in various incarnations and distinctive designer collections.

fancy it

Fancy cut diamonds and gemstones blended into one piece of jewelry stole the sparkle throughout 2021 and are evolving into all jewelry categories for 2022.

Connected with each other

Chains don’t slow down – even when gold goes up. They are still statement, buttery soft yellow gold with a nod to vintage watch pendant chains and 70’s style rectangular elongated chains with a nice hand and weight.


From the red carpets to design studios in diamonds or colored jewels or a mix of both, front-facing tires have dominated. They continue to be a key direction as we head into the new year mixed in different cuts of stones or different colors.

river view

Rivière means river in French, which in the 19th centuryth Century translates to River of Gems. These necklaces have been popular in a variety of incarnations since the 19th century. Today they are worn in pairs or groups, sometimes with a pendant necklace. Two proponents of modern wearing rivière in multiples are Anna Wintour and Sarah Jessica Parker in real life and in the SATC reboot. They also look stunning worn alone and contemporary versions are often referred to as necklaces made for eternity as the stones go all the way around the necklace.

walking on the line

The bracelet, once referred to as the line bracelet in the 1920s, with its array of diamonds and/or gemstones, was popular throughout the 1920sth Century in different versions and sizes and cuts of gemstones. It wasn’t until Chris Evert lost hers during a game on the court in 1978 that the bracelet received the nickname that still describes it today – the tennis bracelet. The versions of the last few years are more daring in the mix of cuts, bolo clasps and frames. It’s a jewel of every style that should fit into your daily rotation.

Pearl it

From healing gemstones to styles that look like the “love pearls” of the ’70s, pearls of various sizes, shapes, colors and cuts are back and more popular than ever. You can wear them with other necklaces or alone with a pendant for a statement look.

She wore colors everywhere

Color is the strongest trend and has been for about three years. It keeps getting bolder, more vibrant and optimistic as we look towards a brighter future.

want dish

Jewelry trays have quickly become as strong a statement as the jewelry you store in them. They started out as decorative ashtrays, small bowls for salt and other condiments, dessert plates, and even the bases of antique T-cups to rest rings and necklaces in so they wouldn’t get lost when washing hands or showering. But savvy artists and designers are expanding their branding by creating their own trays in collaboration with artists like Sketch NYC’s Lisa Bayer. You can store your everyday pieces to grab and take with you, or display them as art objects in the intricately designed trays.
