As 2022 begins, we’ve got our eyes on a fresh set of fashion and jewelry trends. Need inspiration for your “New Year, New Me” look? Here are three trends you won’t want to miss!

1. Nail Art

Nail art allows jewelry to have endless possibilities when it comes to creating personalized looks! Nail art, which originally flourished in Black communities in the U.S., has become one of the most popular trends for Gen-Z and Millennials. If you scroll long enough on Instagram or TikTok, you will see how manicures have transformed from solid colors to works of art!

This trend is a perfect way to add originality to your look. By changing something as simple as your nails, it can allow you to highlight your jewelry in a unique way. All generations are looking for more ways to express their style similar to these artistic combinations by ASHI Diamonds and Simon G Jewelry!

2. Pop of Color

A pop of color breaks up neutral clothing’s mellow palette. If you’re looking to ease your way into adding color to your collection, you can’t go wrong with a hint of hue like a glamorous colored gemstone earring by MJ Christensen Diamonds, featuring January’s birthstone, garnet! It’s a great way to add a subtle sparkle for dressier occasions like a wedding or dinner.

For those who lean more towards maximalism, you can go all out by coordinating your jewelry with various colorful pieces from collections by American Gem Society members like Luv My Jewelry!

Using different tones and shapes adds a nice layer of dimension and keeps things interesting! This gives you the opportunity to mix neon, pastel, and gemstone jewelry for a more modern look.

3. Never-Take-Off Jewelry

There’s something reassuring about a piece of jewelry that one hardly ever removes. One that matches everything and adds the perfect amount of sparkle to your style! Effortlessly add a recognizable touch to any look with bracelets.
