2022 has been the year that fun has been reintroduced to fashion. Gone are the days of minimalism and neutrals and low-key looks.

Now, we’re all about bright colors, whimsy, and excess. Pearls are out (sorry, Harry Styles!) and chunky chains are in.

Below, check out some of the biggest jewelry trends of the year as well as how to pull them off.

1. Layered Necklaces to the Extreme

Layering necklaces no longer means putting on a few dainty pieces. Now, celebs and fashionistas are rocking layers of chunky necklaces for a statement-making look. Many are mixing and matching metals and gems to create a completely unique look.

Some of the many celebs who have embraced the trend include Gigi Hadid, Hailey Bieber, Jennie Kim, Camila Marrone, and more.

2. Color

Love the dopamine dressing trend? Extend it to your accessories! Celebrities and influencers are no longer just sticking to the standard silver and gold but embracing colorful gemstones, rhinestones, and crystals. Some are opting for bright and fun colors while others are choosing more delicate stones like amethysts and opals.

Fans of the look include Blake Lively, Sydney Sweeney, Yara Shahidi, and Cardi B, who have rocked colorful jewelry both on the red carpet and IRL.

3. Body Chains and Belly Chains

Ever since Rihanna stepped out with her baby bump covered in body chains, everyone has wanted to get in on the trend!

Over the last few months, however, celebrities have slowly switched from body chains to belly chains, which go perfectly with a great bikini. Celebrities who have been spotted wearing belly chains include Kylie Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Camila Coelho.

4. Chunky Statement Pieces

Why should necklaces have all the fun? Celebs are also layering rings with stacks on stacks on stacks — and no, we’re not talking about dainty rings here, either. Jewelry lovers are choosing big, chunky, statement rings, and lots of them!

A few of the celebrities who love the trend include Dua Lipa, Kylie Jenner, and Blake Lively.

6. Nameplate Necklaces
