Jewelry Trends Taking Over Summer 2022

By Kimberly Tate, Content Creator, American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories

Jewelry trends heating up the scene this summer are too good to go unnoticed! So when you’re ready to soak up the sun or head to your next BBQ, you’ll need some go-to pieces to add to your jewelry capsule. Here are a few inspiring pieces from American Gem Society (AGS) members to help get you started!

Butterfly Jewelry

Butterfly jewelry designs are making a considerable comeback, particularly among the Gen Z crowd. Even if you’re a fan of the classics, it’s okay to change it up and have a little fun. You’ll stand out in a crowd with this jaw-dropping Mourning Cloak brooch by Crevoshay or a pair of dangling golden butterflies by Simon G Jewelry.

Eternity Rings

Colorful eternity rings are popping up everywhere, and we can’t get enough! You can wear one ring on its own for a touch of sparkle or layer them for added color, texture, and individuality. Inspired by the ocean, this custom-made aquamarine eternity band by Form to Feeling gives us summer vibes! Bring your own heat to the party with a ravishing ruby ring by Omi Privé.


So many jewelry trends come and go, but hoop earrings seem to thrive eternally! Regardless of size, metal, and material, it can be a casual earring or a minimal accent for an evening outfit. If you’re looking to make hoop earrings part of your everyday jewelry collection, consider these beautiful wide-tapered earrings with sparkling hammered detail by E.L. Designs or a pair of pink spinel hoop earrings by Debra Navarro.
