Jewelry lovers can attest that the power of jewelry is palpable, from symbolism to life milestones; A piece of jewelry—both standout and understated—can speak louder than words. While jewelry doesn't traditionally have the same seasonality as the latest handbag trends and shoe trends, gemstones and finishes come in and out of vogue. No look was complete on the fall 2022 runways without a personalized touch via accouterments like bangles, pearl necklaces, and flower power rings. Finding just the right amount of sparkle often comes down to personal preference— from bold chain-link necklaces to sleek layered stacks of bangles, here are the trends that will pepper the jewelry sphere and jewelry boxes for the fall 2022 season.

The Charmed Life

From bauble bracelets at Ulla Johnson to miniature-sized purses clipped onto clothes at Fendi, these charms of all shapes and sizes can serve as symbols of protection and keepsakes for good luck.

Brigade of Bangles

Bangles are the bracelet of choice for fall, ranging from au natural to edgy. Stack yours in a layer à la Saint Laurent, or let a standout piece in silver or gold become the leading accessory.

Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls don't have to read precious. With designers reimagining pearls as '90s chokers and oversized stud earrings, the timeless gem has a Gen Z appeal.

Flower Power

Pre-dating jewelry, women wore flowers as accessories. Equal parts delicate and quirky, a range of fully bloomed florals were a mainstay on the fall runways at designers like Ulla Johnson, Saint Laurent, and Brandon Maxwell.
